New Delhi: As India celebrates its 73rd Independence Day, Google, too has joined the party with a doodle – a mosaic of motifs that represent the spirit of India, not just as a nation but as a developing modern state.

It was created by Shaivalini Kumar which depicted traditional motifs from Indian textiles evoking the complex yet harmonious "patchwork" of Indian culture, ranging from education, to the arts, to courage and compassion.

Inside these ‘patches’, are symbols like tiger, the national animal, the magnificent plume of a peacock, our national bird and a space satellite orbiting the universe that depicts the terrific feat of ISRO. There was also a pride flag that celebrates India’s momentous decision of decriminalizing homosexuality.

The tricolour would be hoisted on Thursday across the country with the national anthem being played. Parades, awards, and cultural events would ring in the momentous occasion across the nation.
