Google Doodle for Sri Lankan Independence Day and “Oh, only Sri Lankans can see it. :(“
Google have made a doodle for Sri Lankan Independence Day, which is a good thing. But seems like some of the Sri Lankans I saw in several social networks are disappointed about the fact that the doodle is limited to only Sri Lanka.
The fact that we should understand is that Google has been making country specific doodles since a long time. In fact, they only make global doodles for… of course, globally important events.
You can see the complete list of Google Doodles in http://www.google.com/doodles/. See how many of them are country specific and how many are global. So, stop whining “Oh, only Sri Lankans can see it. :(“. Google haven’t been at least making it’s origin country USA’s doodles global just because they can or they stupidly think the rest of the world should care about USA specific matters. How many of you have seen the following doodle, which was dedicated for USA Election Day?
