Happy Independence Day, India.
India is celebrating its 64th Independence Day (65th if you count 15th August 1947 as the first Independence day) to mark its independence from the British rule. Google has created an awesome doodle placing the Red Fort, which on mouse over will greet you with a message, “Indian Independence Day”.
The Red Fort, also known as the Lal Qil’ah or Lal Qila was built by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in the 17th century. It is one of the largest monuments and a popular tourist destination in Old Delhi (present day Delhi), attracting over thousands of tourists every year. After India achieved independence from the British in 1947, the Indian Army took over the fort, and in December 2003, the Indian Army handed the fort over to the Indian tourist authorities.
The Prime Minister of India addresses the nation from the Red Fort on 15 August every year.
Well, to celebrate Independence Day, I am using the Epic browser, developed by a Bangalore based start-up called Hidden Reflex. Epic Browser is an Internet web browser which is based on Mozilla Firefox, which taps into several services to serve content which is useful and relevant to Indian users.
