The latest Google Doodle marks the 63rd year of the Republic of India.
The Doodle depicts three elephants decked in finery, each with two children and a tricoloured umbrella on it's back, a reference to the Bravery Awardees who take part in the Republic Day parade. The Doodle is clickable, but does not play video or audio as previous clickable Doodles did. Instead, it leads to a search result page with news and information about Republic Day.
India's Republic Day commemorates the date that the Constitution Of India was enacted and became the document that governed the country. On January 26, 1950, the Indian Assembly's 308 members signed two handwritten copies of the new Constitution, an English and a Hindi version, and two days later the Constitution became the law. Drafted by a committee headed by B R Ambedkar, the Constitution replaced the Government Of India Act Of 1935 that had previously governed colonial India, and declared the country a sovereign, socialist, secular, democratic republic.
