Tutari, Shehnai, Dhol, Veena, Sarangi and Bansuri;Google creates India’s independence Day Doodle

 

CNM wishes its readers Happy Independence Day

Today’s Doodle, illustrated by Mumbai-based guest artist Sachin Ghanekar, commemorates the Independence Day of the world’s largest democracy: India. On this day in 1947, India became a sovereign, independent nation after nearly a century of British rule. 

Featured in the Doodle artwork are several iconic Indian folk instruments, including the tutari, shehnai, dhol, veena, sarangi and bansuri. From the versatile double-reeded shehnai to the resonant stringed sarangi, these instruments are but a few that make up India’s rich musical legacy, which dates back over 6,000 years. 

The musical diversity represented by this unique collection reflects the patchwork of Indian cultures that is celebrated across the nation today.

Happy Independence Day, India! 

 

Guest Artist Q&A with Sachin Ghanekar

Today’s Doodle was illustrated by Mumbai-based guest artist Sachin Ghanekar. Below, he shares his thoughts behind the making of this Doodle:
 

Q: Why was this topic meaningful to you personally? 

A: Independence Day is a matter of pride for every citizen, and for me as an artist, it signifies the freedom to express your ideas, views, thoughts and opinions. I owe my freedom to all those who dreamt of it and fought for it. 
 

 Q: What were your first thoughts when you were approached about the project?

A: I was deeply honoured and thrilled. I have always been a big fan of Google Doodles, and to get an opportunity to create one and that too for such a special day is something that I could have never dreamt of. Finally, something good for me in 2020.
 

 Q: Did you draw inspiration from anything in particular for this Doodle? 

AAt a philosophical level, my inspiration was the diversity of this country. This rich cultural fabric meticulously woven together always amazes me. For the execution of the Doodle, I included various musical instruments, drawing inspiration from various Indian art forms like Kalamkari, Madhubani, Warli, Gond, Phad, and Pichwai to bring this idea to life.
 

 Q: What message do you hope people take away from your Doodle?

AI hope this Doodle reminds people of our rich heritage and how privileged we are to be a part of it.
