The Google Doodle marked the festival of Holi that is being celebrated across India on Friday. The Google itself is designed to depict various colourful people dancing to the beats of the drums which is a significant element of the festivities.

According to an Indian mythological tale, the festival of Holi celebrates the victory of good over evil. It also represents the story of the death of Holika, the sister of a king named Hiranyakashipu who had fallen to her own trap set to kill his nephew Prahlad who is said to be saved by Lord Krishna as the latter went on to rule the kingdom of ‘Daityas’.
