Today marks the 74th year of India's Republic Day celebrations (January 26). Google has also acknowledged this event by devoting a hand-cut paper doodle to the celebration. In honour of India's Republic Day, today's Google Doodle features an illustration that was created by Parth Kothekar, a guest artist from Ahmedabad, Gujarat. It was on this day in 1950 that the Constitution of India was adopted, marking the day that India officially became an independent, democratic, and republic state.

The paper used in the creation of today's Doodling is cut by hand in elaborate patterns. The artwork depicts several aspects of the Republic Day parade, including the Rashtrapati Bhavan (which is where the president lives), the India Gate, the CRFP marching group, and motorbike riders.

In 1947, India won its independence from the British Empire, and shortly afterwards, the country started the process of writing its constitution. The approval of this constitution cleared the door for democracy in India and gave the people of that country the ability to vote for their own representatives in government. The Indian Constitution became legally binding on all citizens on January 26, 1950. In addition to this, the day is commemorated as the anniversary of the Indian National Congress's proclamation of Purna Swaraj in 1929. This event took place on the same day.

The Republic Day parade will be held in New Delhi, and it will include tableaux representing each state as well as hundreds of bands and folk dancers from throughout the country.
