About Republic Day 2021 Google Doodle

Today’s India Republic Day 2021 Google Doodle is illustrated by Mumbai-based guest artist Onkar Fondekar who is honouring the national day with an incredible sketch. In celebration of India’s Republic Day, today’s Doodle artwork reflects the range of vibrant cultures that bring the colourful nation to life. With origins that stretch back hundreds of years, musical instruments such as the dholak (a two-headed hand drum) and the sitar (a long-necked stringed instrument), both featured in the Doodle artwork, are just a few examples of India’s rich heritage.
