Search engine Google today displayed "A Prism of Multiplicity", an award winning doodle designed by Chandigarh teenager Arun Kumar Yadav.

More than 100 million people across India will take a dekko at an Indian emblem, a winning Google doodle, on the search engine's homepage on Children's Day November 14, the birthday of Jawaharlal Nehru, India's first Prime Minister.

The doodle, "A Prism of Multiplicity" showing a soccer player, a kathakali dancer, gold jewellery, a peacock, a farmer and flowers, was designed by Arun Kumar Yadav, a teenager and a student from Chandigarh.

Yadav was declared winner of the Doodle4Google contest, which received 200,000 submissions from 60 Indian cities.

The competition was judged 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, Rajan Anandan, vice-president and managing director, Google India, said.

"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 world art to more than two billion Internet users. Art is the least accessible of all other genres," Anandan said.

"You can visit the best museums in London and Paris with your computer -- without moving out of your home."

Anandan said that Google was also working on a history and culture project.
