Children’s day is being celebrated by Google 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 J. B. Vachha High School in Mumbai contested along with over 75,000 students from around the country and produced amazing work in response to this year’s theme of “What inspires me?” Among the five finalists, Pingla won with her Doodle “Galaxy, Space Exploration”.

Expressing her happiness, Pingla 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 on November 14 in India as a tribute to former prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru, who was born on November 14, 1889. He, due to his love for children, 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.

Nehru was a very strong advocate of the importance of education when it came to children. He was involved in establishing All India Institute of Medical Sciences, the Indian Institutes of Technology, the Indian Institutes of Management and the National Institutes of Technology.

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.
