The theme this year was Unity in Diversity and the Google team was looking for doodles which, according to students, are uniquely different and diverse, yet unite India.
Explaining the concept, Nikhil Rungta, Country Marketing Head, Google India, said, “The competition aims to facilitate the creative talent of young India and provide a national platform for children to showcase their talent. Many entries this year were beyond tier 1 cities, which means that Internet is now on its way to reach the next billion.”
Vidhi’s parents are delighted. Her father Vishal Binwal, who works with TCS, said Vidhi recently joined a formal drawing class. “Initially, for D4G, she had made four doodles. She herself selected the one which had a touch of warli because she is fond of warli art,” said Binwal.
