Google-Doodle remembers Bapu on I-Day


New Delhi: In honor of the 69th Anniversary of India’s Independence on Aug. 15, Google India’s Doodle features Mahatma Gandhi leading the Dandi March of 1930. The scene depicts a significant moment in India’s push for freedom from the rule of the British Raj and the beginning of the Civil Disobedience Movement. Seventy-eight Congress volunteers participated in the 240-mile march in protest of unfair salt laws. Leon Hong illustrated the Doodle for Google users in India as they celebrate the Indian Independence Act of 1947 on Saturday.
