Celebrating India’s Independence on Google Arts & Culture

Today, ahead of the Independence Day of India on August 15, we’re launching a new collection: ‘India Ki Udaan’, published in English and Hindi. This collection celebrates India’s unwavering spirit and its 75 years of independence, and the literal title translation means “India takes flight”. It allows anyone to explore more than 120 illustrations and 21 stories created by 10 talented artists, alongside 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. This initiative offers a unique view of India and lets people discover some of the most memorable moments in India’s modern history, its iconic personalities, its proudest scientific and sporting achievements, and how women in India continue to inspire the world.
