The Doodle was created by Kevin Laughlin. Google explained the Doodle has has "two bridges, one for the "drone" strings and the other for the melody strings. Laughlin's design shows the style of sitar Shankar played, which includes a second gourd-shape resonator at the top of the instrument's neck."

Ravi Shankar was born on April 7, 1920 in Banaras, India and died on December 11, 2012 at the age of 92 in San Diego, California.
