Google Doodle on Saturday commemorated the sixth phase of India's Lok Sabha elections - taking place in 58 constituencies across six states and two union territories (UTs). In its doodle, Google replaced its iconic logo with an image depicting an uplifted index finger marked with ink - a symbol synonymous with the democratic process of the Indian elections.
