Among the five finalists was Pingla Rahul More of JB Vachha High School in Mumbai, who won the contest with her doodle “Galaxy, Space Exploration” New Delhi: Google celebrated Children’s Day with a doodle created by a school student from Mumbai who has won the 2018 ‘Doodle 4 Google’ competition in India. The winner, Pingla Rahul More of JB Vachha High School in Mumbai, was chosen from a pool of 75,000 students who participated in the competition from all around the country. This year’s theme was “What inspires me?”

“In my Doodle, I demonstrated what inspires me. I am extremely inspired by Space Exploration as there is still so much more to know about our Universe — from planets to stars to galaxies and beyond. It is inspiring to learn how small we are, and how small our problems are, in the grand scheme of things.”

Among the five finalists, Pingla won with her Doodle “Galaxy, Space Exploration.” Pingla, who was excited at having been featured on the Google page, said, “In my Doodle, I demonstrated what inspires me. I am extremely inspired by Space Exploration as there is still so much more to know about our Universe — from planets to stars to galaxies and beyond. It is inspiring to learn how small we are, and how small our problems are, in the grand scheme of things. To convey my idea, I drew myself trying to see the expanse of the space through a telescope, I created galaxies, planets and spacecraft to represent the vastness of things in space (carefully arranged to represent each letter in the Google logo).” Children’s Day is celebrated in India on November 14 to honour India’s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru who was born on November 14, 1889. Due to his love for children, Nehru was fondly known as Chacha Nehru. “The children of today will make the India of tomorrow. The way we bring them up will determine the future of the country,” Nehru had said. On this day, schools and colleges host cultural programs, functions and events. Many times, teachers also participate in these functions in order to show their love and affection for children. Google organises a doodle competition on the occasion every year and seeks entries from school children on a particular theme.
