Google today commemorated the Independence Day of the world’s largest democracy with an illustrated doodle by guest artist Neethi, based in Kerala.
The Doodle shows India celebrating 75 years of independence with soaring kites symbolizing that the country has reached great heights.
In 1947, India broke free from British colonial rulers after a long struggle. Independence Day is a national holiday to commemorate and remember the sacrifice of the freedom fighters who fought for the independence of our country.
Independence Day 2022 Doodle “depicts the culture around kites – from the craftsmanship of creating beautiful, shiny kites to the joyful experience of a community coming together. The vast expanse of sky brilliantly speckled with kites is a colorful symbol of the great heights we have reached. GIF animation adds dynamism and brings the doodle to life. »
On the doodle, artist Neethi said one of our fondest memories, the centuries-old tradition of kite flying has been an integral part of Indian Independence Day festivities.
“Kites are also an outlet for artistic expression – many of them carry fashionable designs or even social messages. I designed kites representing our national colors, a message of love and commemorating 75 years of Indian independence. They fly as high as skyscrapers, birds and I’d like to believe the sun,” he said.
Several events were organized this year under the banner of “Azadi ka Amrit Mohatsav”, to celebrate India’s Independence Day with the theme “Nation First, Always First”.
