Google Doodle’s Tribute For The 68th Republic Day
The internet giant, Google in its special doodle has marked the 68th Republic Day of India on Thursday that showed a stadium full of people amid a sea of tricolor decking up in the arena.
The doodle displays nearly one-half of the stadium, with the crowd on the two corners, with a saffron-coloured band that runs along the inner periphery of the curved track.
The outer edge of the track shown the decorations with the tricolors and a semi-circular patch of green marks the space at the center.
The word G-O-O-G-L-E has been spelled out in an arched fashion in bold green on the running tracks surrounded by two green grid patterns and one in red.
The search giant comes up every year with a special doodle to mark the day. Last year, as a major attraction at the annual parade at the Rajpath, Google showed the richly caparisoned camel contingent march done by the Border Security Force (BSF).
The 68th Republic Day Parade would showcase the India’s military strength and the achievements in a range of areas along with the diverse culture of the country on the ceremonial boulevard on 26th January 2017.
