Google commemorates 75 years of Indias Independence with doodle featuring kites

Google on Monday celebrated 75 years of India's Independence with a breathtaking doodle centered around the country's tradition of flying kites.

An age-old tradition, kite-flying has been a significant part of Independence Day festivities. Today's special doodle has been illustrated by Kerala-based artist Neethi. India won freedom from British colonial rulers after a prolonged struggle on this day in 1947.

The significance of the kite doodle, created to commemorate Independence Day 2022, has also been explained by Google Doodle on its page. "People also celebrate by flying kites—a longstanding symbol of independence. Indian revolutionaries once flew kites with slogans to protest British rule. Since then, recreational and competitive kite flying has become one of Independence Day's most popular traditions."

Speaking about the doodle that she has created, Neethi said that the kites depict "our national colors, a message of love and commemorating the 75 years of Indian independence. They fly as high as skyscrapers, and birds and I'd like to believe the sun!"

"My artwork depicts the culture around kites- from the craft of creating bright beautiful kites to the cheerful experience of a community coming together. The vast expanse of sky brightly speckled with soaring kites is a colorful symbol of the great heights we have achieved. The GIF animation adds dynamism and brings the doodle alive," Neethi added.

Independence Day celebrations are held at the Red Fort in Delhi, where the Prime Minister raises the national flag and a 21-gun salute is accorded. Following his speech, a parade honors the members of the Indian armed forces and police.

Addressing the nation from the Red Fort on Monday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that India is honoring the forgotten heroes who played a significant role in the country's freedom struggle. He also spoke about the strength of women and the sacrifice of freedom fighters, including Rani Lakshmibai and Begum Hazrat Mahal.
