“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 mother hood,” said Gayatri Ketharaman, a student of Bishop’s co-education school in Pune.

The winner was selected by the national jury comprising Kirron Kher and cartoonist Ajit Ninan.

“The competition is the perfect platform for the Indian youth to showcase their talent on an international platform. It allows youngsters not only from the metro cities but tier II, III and even IV to participate,” said Rajan Anandan, managing director, Google India.
