Zee Media Bureau/Liji Varghese
New Delhi: Google India on Thursday celebrated Children`s Day with a colourful doodle designed by a class 10 student from a school in Pune.
The doodle titled "Sky`s the limit for Indian women" has been designed by Gayatri Ketharaman for the fifth edition of Doodle 4 Google competition with the theme celebrating Indian women.
"Each letter of the doodle depicts the trait of Indian women. She is graceful and elegant, adept at balancing work and home. She is a go-getter and also personifies motherhood," said Gayatri Ketharaman, a student of Bishop`s co-education school in Pune.
The winner was selected from among 12 finalists chosen from different parts of the country by the national jury comprising actress Kirron Kher and political cartoonist Ajit Ninan.
The search engine giant holds the Doodle 4 Google contest for school kids in India with a particular theme every year. The winning entry is then featured on the homepage on November 14, the birth anniversary of India`s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru.

This year the competition received 1.5 lakh entries in the contest held across 100 cities and 1,500 schools.
