Google India Celebrates Children's Day With A Doodle


Today’s Google homepage greets you with a colourful doodle of a bunch of musical instruments.

The doodle celebrating Children’s Day is the brainchild of Varsha Gupta, a Class Three student of Ryan

International School in Greater Noida.
Gupta was recently chosen as winner of the Doodle 4 Google competition that Google organised.

The search engine had announced that it would put the winning entry on its India homepage on Children’s Day — November 14.

On the Google 4 Doodle site Gupta explains her creation in these words:

“India is a land of different cultures. In India Music plays a very important role. India has given many musical instruments to the world. Example: Tabla, Sarod, Veena, Shehnai etc.

Goddess Saraswati plays Veena, God Shiv plays damaru. According to our mythological stories musical instruments used to be played on all the occasions.

Even during war musical instruments were played. Lord Krishna’s flute is known in the whole world for its magical music. In modern days Zakir Hussain is world famous as Tabla Mastro. Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma is known as a great Santoor player all over the world.”
