In the Google India homepage, netizens could see a Royal Bengal tiger standing in a jungle and it is surrounded by the country´s national flower- the lotus.

One could also see the India Gate in the background.

The Google logo is drawn on the tiger´s body as its stripes.

Amid a tight security and grand parade that displayed the mighty strength of Indian military, the country celebrated the 64th Republic Day on Saturday.

In India, Republic Day commemorates the date (Jan 26, 1950) on which the Constitution of India came into force replacing the Government of India Act 1935 as the governing document of the country.

From Charlie Chaplin to Marie Curie, Google doodles have not only celebrated the birth anniversaries of great personalities, they have also made internet users know about important dates through the designs and animation.
