On the occasion of 72nd Independence Day, Google Doodle took ‘Truck Art’ to celebrate the special day.
On the Doodle, Google said, “Today’s Doodle-featuring images of some of India’s iconic colorful plant life and mighty animals-was inspired by Indian truck art, a long-standing tradition in this four million square kilometer nation where truckers who live on the road surround themselves with cheerful folk art to occupy their minds during long months away from their families.”
The doodle features a tiger, an elephant and two peacocks reflecting a typical goods vehicle art seen on the roads.
For all Indians Independence Day is a day to remember the people who fought the Britishers and gave up their lives to free the country from a foreign ruler. Independence Day is a national holiday and is celebrated with much fervor across the nation.
