On the eve of Indian festival of colours-Holi, internet giant Google presented a colourful doodle to mark the festival and wish people on the occassion. 

The doodle on Google's homepage has a pichkari, a spraygun used to splash water during holi celebrations. 

All the main colours of the holi palette including Gulabi (pink), red, blue, yellow and green are splattered across Google's India homepage. 

Priot to this,Google had showcased a doodle on the occasion of Holi in 2001, and then again in 2010 and 2011.

But, this doodle is not multimedia friendly and interactive as some of the other doodles and just lands you on the Holi festival page. Prior to this, Google's women's day doodle had embedded videos of some of the most powerful women in the world including Mary Kom, Malala Yousafzai, Dora - the explorer, muppet Chamki from Galli Galli Sim Sim, the Indian equivalent of Sesame Street who wishes everyone 'Happy Women's Day' in Hindi.
