“The children from India have shown their creativity,
understanding and sensitivity through their artistic work and Doodle4Google is
a great global platform that provided them this opportunity. All the 45 final
doodles are extremely well thought of and are varied in their interpretation of
the way they see ‘India’s gift to the world’. I am sure it is not going to be
easy to select the top 3 winners. I congratulate all those who participated in
this initiative” says Nandita Das, herself daughter of artist Jatin Das.
