Arun Kumar Yadav, a local student, has been declared the winner of the Doodle4Google contest, which received 2 lakh submissions from 60 Indian cities.

More than 100 million people across India will have a look at his doodle on the search engine's homepage on Children's Day (November 14).

The doodle, titled 'A Prism of Multiplicity', shows a soccer player, a kathakali dancer, gold jewellery, a peacock, a farmer and flowers.

Yadav is a Class-9 student of Kendriya Vidyalaya, Sector 31. The winning entry was announced at a picnic-cum-felicitation ceremony at the Rail Museum in New Delhi on Monday.

The entries were adjudged by a two-member jury comprising cartoonist Ajit Ninan and actor Boman Irani. The theme for this year's competition was 'Unity in Diversity'.

The Doodle4Google competition was instituted four years ago to encourage children to take up creative work, said Rajan Anandan, vice-president and managing director, Google India.

"We are also promoting art awareness through Google. The search engine has tied up with 41 countries under the Google Art Project to bring the best global art to more than 2 billion internet users," Anandan said.

"You can visit the best museums in London and Paris with your computer without moving out of your home," Anandan said. He added that Google was also working on a history and culture project.
