Posted on: 05:54 PM IST Dec 31, 2012
New Delhi: Welcoming the New year 2013, Google has posted a new doodle on its homepage. The New Year 2013 doodle is a sequel to the New year's eve doodle 2013, which was as assortment of 35 doodles that appeared during the year 2012.
While the New Year's eve doodle signalled the New year's eve party, the New Year 2013 doodle, which has been designed in continuation to the last doodle, shows the post-party scene, with hosts mopping and cleaning the place.
The New year's eve doodle had attendees gracefully dressed up having feverish night of partying, while the New year 2013 doodle shows a morning scene with no guests around. The New year doodle features the haphazardly placed letters of the word Google, acting as hosts cleaning the area after the party.
Last year also, Google had come up with two different doodles to welcome the New Year celebrations. After having a party on December 31 2011, the New Year's Day doodle on the Google home page signalled a fresh beginning in the year 2012. The letters on the Google logo celebrated the passing of 2011 and welcomed 2012 with music, dance, baloons and a lot of colour on Saturday. After a feverish night of partying, they seemed to have already embarked upon fulfilling their resolutions for the New Year on Sunday.
Taking into account the sensitivity and anger of Indian citizens following the brutal Delhi gangrape case, Google did not post the New Year's eve doodle on the India homepage. Instead, Google was seen grieving over the demise of the Delhi braveheart in its own way. In the memory of the braveheart, Google placed a subtle vigil candle below its search box on the Google India homepage.
