Google celebrates Pahela Baishakh

MNA Science & Tech Desk: Search engine giant Google is celebrating Pahela Baishakh, the first day of the Bangla new year, by replacing its regular home page graphic with a special doodle for the Bangladeshi surfers.

Google’s new Doodle Saturday featured a parade of colorful banners in the shape of an elephant and Mangal Shobhajatra, reported news agency.

The calendar was originally commissioned by Mughal Emperor Akbar who introduced the calendar to facilitate tax collections in the spring-just after the harvest.

Google Doodle is a special, temporary alteration of the logo on Google’s homepage that is intended to celebrate holidays, events, achievements and people.

The doodle was introduced in 1998.
