New Delhi, Aug 6: Google has discovered a method to tell the tale of India’s accomplishments online as the country celebrates its 75th anniversary of independence. The global leader of search engines on Friday unveiled the “India ki Udaan” online project, which would introduce internet users to the rich culture and tradition of India through its extensive archives and stunning graphics.
The initiative was formally introduced during an event held at the Sunder Nursery under the auspices of “Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav” in the presence of Union Minister of Culture and Tourism G Kishan Reddy and other top Ministry officials.
The initiative, which was carried out by Google Arts and Culture, was based on the idea of the “Unwavering and Undying Spirit of India throughout these Past 75 Years.”
As the entire country observes the 75th anniversary of its independence as part of the “Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav,” Google is preparing to collaborate with the Ministry of Culture to produce educational online content that will highlight the role of Indians played in reshaping the country both before and after independence.
Additionally, Google announced the launch of several special initiatives across its products and services that will provide its Indian users with premium content and an exceptional experience during the anniversary year.
75 years of asking questions.
75 years of finding solutions.
75 years of flying to new heights.
75 years of #IndiaKiUdaan.
