Varsha Gupta, a third standard student of Ryan International School in Greater Noida, stole the show as she won the popular Doodle4Google India contest. Around 1,55,000 contestants were raced past by Varsha's Google logo which illustrated Indian classical music instruments, drawn in a style to portray each letter of "Google".
"India is a land of different cultures. In India, music plays a very important role. India has given many musical instruments to the world..." Varsha wrote describing her Doodle. JJ School of Art in Mumbai screened all the drawings and later put them up for online voting. Professional artists who draw doodles for Google were entitled to judge the logos drawn by children. "I helped judge the drawings with a few of my colleagues and frankly, we were all a little scared. These kids are so good, we might all lose our jobs sometime soon." said Jennifer Hom, Google Doodler. Out of the 1,55,000 entries, as many as 6,000 doodles were shortlisted for the quarter-finals, and 600 for the semis. A panel of judges then picked the 45 finalists. Varsha's victory moved her father to tears and he said, "This is the best day of my life. I am so happy." The logo drawn by Varsha will be used by Google on 14th November and her work will be showcased in front of hundred million online users. On winning an expensive laptop as a prize, Varsha says "When my father is in office, I will give the laptop to my mother. When he comes back, I will give it to him." Rajan Anandan, Managing Director and VP for Google India, handed Varsha with the winning certificate at an event in Delhi and along with a laptop, a year's Internet connection and 2 Lakh technology grant for her school. Anandan said, "I am delighted to see the enthusiasm that the youngsters have put in to showcase their creativity. We hope this gets bigger each year." Mangalore's Shubham Vernekar was also a national finalist in the contest. Shubham has also won Daijiworld Weekly Drawing Contest. Apart from him two other Mangaloreans, Vaibhav Shenoy and Varun Holla were also in the race. Although Mangalore boys are extremely artistic, it was the voting system that prevented them from winning the contest. They missed the opportunity due to lack of better online publicity and as they secured fewer votes, they lost their chance in the contest.
