Doodle 4 Google celebrates Children’s Day: Winner draws machine that cleanses garbage

Another kid has given a huge smile to India’s large number of Google fan. The search giant that celebrated the Children’s Day like everyone else in India, put a different doodle instead of its usually drab logo on its home page.

The Doodle was the handiwork of not an aged nerd or a renowned artist who had passed out from a reputed fine art college in the country or elsewhere.

Amazingly the person who was behind the impressive doodle is a young kid of just 9 years. To be true it was an illustration made by the winner of Doodle 4 Google contest. The competition is in its 7th year in India and decides the champion through a public voting process.

Kids under the 2015 edition of Doodle 4 Google were asked to draw a picture with the theme of ‘If I could create something for India, it would be…’. The Doodle that the nine year old drew was simply fascinating. His creation depicts a ‘Plastic to Earth’ machine which is supposed to recycle garbage in India.

There is no denying the fact that garbage is a major issue in this country of 1.25 billion people. From Delhi to India’s Silicon Valley you will find heaps of garbage almost everywhere. Smaller city too perform worse on this count.

In his depiction of the machine and the garbage, the waste is sucked into a contraption which looks like a car. The ‘evil’ plastic is converted into a material which aids the growth of Mother Nature. The apparatus seems to be powered by solar energy, going by the panels on top of the mechanism. It further appears to be gathering the objects from a polluted river flowing through an urban city.

Reports suggest that Karthik was the winner under the Group 1 subdivision. P Ramya, the Group 2 winner, is also from Visakhapatnam. Her ‘Green City Dream City’ picture shows a city which utilizes only green sources of energy to power itself. The third winner was a Delhi kid.
