Google's Doodle Features Independent India's First Stamp

New Delhi

Celebrating India's 68th Independence Day, Google today posted a doodle on its homepage featuring the independent India's first stamp.

The blue colour stamp with the Indian tricolour is the doodle that comes up when you open the Google's India homepage.

The stamp, which was issued on November 21, 1947 depicts the Indian flag with the slogan 'Jai Hind' on the top right hand corner. Priced at three and one-half annas, the stamp was meant for foreign correspondence.

The logo of Google starts with a 'G' but with the saffron colour, the colour of the top stripe in the Indian flag.

The next two letters are covered by the stamp and the last three letters are in the green shade of the Indian flag.

"Doodles are the fun, surprising, and sometimes spontaneous changes that are made to the Google logo to celebrate holidays, anniversaries, and the lives of famous artists, pioneers, and scientists," the global internet giant said.

The first of the 6 subs is out on sea trials for the last three months and is to be commissioned later this year. At this stage, a newspaper in Australia has revealed secret data on the submarines, plausibly stolen from India. Indian Defence authorities have ruled out any pilferage of data from India.
