Google India has lit a white candle on its homepage as a tribute to the 23-year-old Delhi gang-rape victim, who passed away following a 13-day fight for life.

It's not another fancy Google doodle, but a small image below the search bar. Once you move the cursor on the candle, it reads: "In memory of the Delhi braveheart".

A touching gesture indeed - even as scores of Indians have been holding candlelight vigils to pay homage to the trainee physiotherapist.

She was brutally gang-raped by six men on a moving bus here Dec 16. She was admitted to the Safdarjung Hospital, and later taken to Singapore for specialised treatment after her condition deteriorated. She died early Saturday.
