Youngster designs a musical homepage for Google India
Varsha Gupta, from Ryan International School in Greater Noida, beat thousands of people to win the prestigious prize.
Her musical doodle, which includes the percussion instrument tabla, will appear on Google India's homepage on November 14th 2011, which is Children's Day.
Explaining her design, the seven-year-old said: "India is a land of different cultures. In India, music plays a very important role. India has given many musical instruments to the world. Goddess Saraswati plays Veena, God Shiv plays Damaru.
"According to our mythological stories musical instruments used to be played on all the occasions. Even during war musical instruments were played. Lord Krishna's flute is known in the whole world for its magical music. In modern days Mr. Zakir Hussain is world famous as Tabla Mastro and Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma is known as a great Santoor player all over the world.”
Varsha was presented with a certificate, a laptop, one year's internet connection and a technology grant for her school.
