Search engine Google is paying tribute to late musician Pandit Ravi Shankar on his 96th birth anniversary on Thursday by a doodle with a sitar as the centrepiece.
Ravi Shankar was one of the best-known 20th century exponents of the sitar.
Designed by artist Kevin Laughlin, the doodle has the letters GOOGLE in the form of a creeping plant with a sitar standing upright towards the right.
Ravi Shankar was awarded the Bharat Ratna, India’s highest civilian honour, in 1999. He died on December 11, 2012.
