Varsha Gupta, a student from class III, has been chosen as the winner for this year’s Doodle4Google competition. The competition, which received more than 1,55,000 entries from across India, saw the seven-year old girl winning the title.
Doodles are creative logos that appear on Google homepage some special days to commemorate scientific and artistic achievements, historic or seasonal events, and other local occasions.
The winning doodle titled ‘Indian Musical Instruments’ will feature on Google India’s homepage on November 14, besides which Gupta has also received a laptop, a year’s Internet connection and a Rs 2 lakh technology grant for her school.
“I’m delighted to see the enthusiasm that the youngsters have put in to showcase their creativity. As they say, be like a child, as a child has fresh ideas and is unbiased. We hope this gets bigger each year,” Google India Managing Director and VP Sales and Operations Rajan Anandan said.
