We are so proud of Gayatri Ketharaman – congratulations to her for winning the 2013 Doodle 4 Google contest themed on “celebrating Indian women”! This 15 year old from Bishop’s Co-ed School in Pune did not give up – she’s been particpating for the last 4 years and was even shortlisted in 2011 – and her efforts bore fruit this year.

Her doodle is titled ” Sky’s The Limit for Indian Women” and, in her own words:

Each letter of my doodle depicts a trait of the Indian Women. She is graceful and elegant, adept at balancing work and home. She is a go getter. She personifies motherhood. Even in the face of adversity, she is courageous. Kudos to Indian Women!

Google celebrated Children’s Day (Nov 14) by displaying her attractive doodle on its homepage.

Google holds the doodle contest for school kids in India every year on a particular theme and features the winning entry on its homepage on the Children’s Day. Google India managing director Rajan Anandan said the company received over 1.5 lakh entries this year.
