India is celebrating its 65th Independence Day (66th if you count 15th August 1947 as the first Independence day)  to mark its independence from the British rule. Google has created an awesome doodle by placing the colorful Peacock where it’s color is similar to Indian national flag, which on mouse over will greet you with a message, “Indian Independence Day”.

This time Google placed Peacock, Why? Cause peacock was declared the National Bird of India because of its rich religious and legendary involvement in Indian traditions. And it’s also a  symbol of qualities like beauty, grace, pride and mysticism.  The peacock curves its neck backwards to form the ‘G’ of the Google and all the other letters of the Google appear in ornate styling behind the peacock’s plume.
