Search engine giant Google on Saturday featured a parade of colorful banners in the shape of an elephant and Mangal Shobhajatra, in celebration of Pahela Baishakh, the first day of the Bengali calendar.
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.
Earlier, Google made a doodle in honour of Bangladesh’s Independence Day this year.
