1 year ago
To celebrate the 75 years of India’s Independence and its unwavering and undying spirit, Google launches an online project “India ki Udaan”, that will take people to the rich culture and heritage of India through its rich archives and feature artistic illustrations to tell the story of India.
The project was officially launched at an event held at the Sunder Nursery under the auspices of the ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’ in the presence of Union Culture and Tourism Minister G Kishan Reddy and other senior Ministry officials.
The project, which was carried out by Google Arts and Culture, was based on the theme “Unwavering and undying spirit of India over the past 75 years.”
The highlight of the celebration is the launch of the new collection on Google Arts & Culture named “India ki Udaan”. This collection will honor India’s enduring spirit and 75 years of independence.
This special collection, whose literal meaning is “India takes flight,” allows anyone to explore more than 120 visuals and 21 stories created by 10 talented artists, as well as exhibitions from various institutions across India, including the Ministry of Tourism, Museum of Art & Photography, Heritage Directorate of the Indian Railways, the Indian Academy of Sciences, and the Dastkari Haat Samiti.
I am hopeful that the partnership with Google shall strengthen the Ministry’s goal of preserving, promoting, and disseminating all forms of Indian art and culture. This is an important expansion of our collaborations with Google arts and culture in digitizing India’s rich history and heritage”, said Mr. G Kishan Reddy, Minister of Tourism, Culture, and Development of the North Eastern Region of India.
This project offers a unique perspective on some of India’s most extraordinary moments, allowing individuals to discover India’s history, famous personalities, proudest scientific and sporting achievements, and how Indian women continue to inspire the world.
“A celebration like this would remain incomplete. Without the involvement of children, whose ambitions and goals will help build the future” Google Company informed.
That’s why the company announced the opening of entries for the 2022 Doodle for Google contest, with the topic “In the next 25 years, my India will…” to students from Grade 1-10 based in India from September 30, 2022.
