Pune Girl’s Doodle To Feature On Google’s Homepage On November 14
Tomorrow is Children’s Day in India and there is no better way of rejoicing it by celebrating the work of an eleven-year-old. Google India will be featuring Anvita Prashant Telang’s doodle on Google’s homepage on November 14 to celebrate Children’s Day. She recently won the national level Doodle 4 Google contest.
“Since 2009, Google has been running Doodle 4 Google contest. With ‘Doodle 4 Google’ competition, we aim to promote creativity, passion and imagination in younger users. We congratulate Anvita for being judged as the winner this year,” said Sapna Chadha, Head of Marketing, Google India, in a statement.
Based on this year’s theme ‘If I could teach anyone anything, it would be’, Anvita had submitted her doodle titled ‘Live in the present’, which won compliments. Anvita who loves to draw is a student of Vibgyor High School in Balewadi, Pune.
Her mother Aparna Telang said, “Although Anvita is a regular 11-year-old, sometimes her answers are so philosophical that they flummox me. Sometimes I tell her what is happening in my office and her replies have been very mature and different from what you would expect from someone as young as her.”
Anvita believes that the world is running at a faster pace due to which it is not able to enjoy small and good things in nature and life. “That is what I have tried to show in my doodle. I try to live in the present and not worry too much about anything. That keeps me happy,” she said.
An official statement from Google said, “Her creativity and vision towards developing ‘a better world and healthy lifestyle’ is well reflected through her colourful doodle where she has showcased how everyone should ‘enjoy every moment’ and appreciate the simple things around us and live stress-free.”
Over 50 cities across the country send their entries, which were then assessed on artistic merit, creativity and theme communication as well as their distinctive and different approach to the Doodle. The Doodle represents greeneries, water, water life, balloons, making it a lovely animated picture.
