Gayatri Ketharaman, a 15-year-old girl,Pune won Doodle4Google contest for 2013 with a doodle titled 'Sky's The Limit for Indian Women'. The winning doodle will feature on Google India's homepage on November 14.

Google holds the doodle contest for school kids in India every year on a particular theme and features the winning entry on its homepage on Children's Day. For this year, the theme was 'celebrating the Indian women'. Google Indiamanaging director Rajan Anandan said the company received over 1.5 lakh entries this year.

Gayatri, currently a student of class 10 at the Bishop's Co-Ed School in Pune, has been taking part in the contest for last four years. She came close to winning in 2011 when her doodle on 'India's gift to the world' was among the shortlisted entries. But this year she finally succeeded with a doodle that celebrates the Indian woman and her life.

"It took me around a week to complete the doodle once I started working on it. But before that I spend several weeks thinking about the theme and how best I can represent the ideas I had in my mind about Indian women," Gayatri told TOI. "My doodle attempts to show different qualities of Indian women."

The doodle, which has to resemble the word Google, starts with a dancing woman who is arched to represent G. Gayatri says that the figure represents the grace and feminine side of Indian women. In place of two Os, Gayatri has used one rupee coin and a symbol for home, representing how Indian women take care of work as well as home. In place of G, there are earth and moon, showing that the Indian women are go-getters. In place of L, there is a woman holding a kid, showing caring nature of Indian women and in place of E, there is a police cap, which shows that when required Indian women can wear different hats and can be tough and brave.

This year the Doodle4Google contest had three categories. Category one was for studentsclass 1 to 3, category two was for studentsclass 4 to 6 and category three was for studentsclass 7 to 10. The category one was won by Madhuram VatsalLucknow, category two was won by Binita BiswajeetaBalasore and the category three was won by Akash ShettyMangalore. Gayatri was the overall winner.

Google said that before deciding the winners, it had selected 12 finalists.of them have been given a Chromebook as well as a few other prizes.

"The entries this year have comeacross the country which is a clear indication that we are well underway to taking the internet to the next billion," said Anandan.

Google often features doodles on its homepage to mark important momentsholiday or historical event. It also often pays homage to scientists, inventors and other notable persons on its homepage through dedicated doodles.

Wishful thinking, but there’s a chance the next version of Android will be named Android Ladoo or Android Lassi, if these ingenious desis have their way. After a failed attempt at trying to convince Google to name version 4.3 of the operating system Kaju Katli, Indians are back in action to try and convince the OS’ chief Sundar Pichai to look towards the motherland to name the next Android.

A bunch of Google fans who had been campaigning to name the recently christened KitKat version of Android Kaju Katli are a little disappointed. The gang wrote to Android and Google honchos and even handed a Senior VP of Google a box of the Indian sweet. It’s sad because the Senior VP was Amit Singhal who has probably eaten Kaju Katli all his life and it’s sadder that Google went on to name Android version 4.3 KitKat, after a chocolate bar available over the world; a brand name instead of a generic dessert name.
Android Ladoo, because Google needs to go desi
Android Ladoo, because Google needs to go desi


However, as they write, “We are Indians. We have big hearts. We understand that there might be commercial pressures to do so. Or maybe our voices were just not loud enough to make KajuKatli Android a reality.” So now, the pressure is on Google to consider naming the next version of Android “Ladoo” after the round delicious Indian savoury. Surely, the Android mascot will look brilliant, painted in yellow with a sphere for stomach.

They have a website up and urge you to show your support for Android Ladoo. The campaign has seen close to 5100 supporters as of now who would like to see the OS version named after Ladoo.

If you thought India was unanimous about the name it wished Pichai would christen Android, think again. A group of students from IIT-Kharagpur – which also happens to be Pichai’s alma mater – are lobbying for Android to be named Lassi. The yogurt based drink has been proposed by the group and an open letter shot off.

"We would like to suggest that the very next version of Android be named on one of the most popular Indian dessert, Lassi. Lassi, the humble Indian sweetened yogurt based drink, is a traditional chilled beverage of India served with an assortment of flavourings. Lassi symbolizes the purity and delicacy of Indian culture. This explains the huge cult following that Lassi commands all over India," reads the letter.

All in all, the pleas are that Google and Android acknowledge the growing Indian Android community. A version named after an Indian sweet could well push the OS’ already fast growing user base in the country higher.

facebook introduces hashtags facebook introduces hashtags facebook introduces hashtags facebook introduces hashtags If you're a fan of hashtags that are used on Twitter, then you will be pleased to know that social networking major, Facebook now offers the same feature which can be added to posts by profile users.

Facebook officially acknowledges that the “feature is similar to other services like Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, or Pinterest,” and will in fact integrate with the hashtags used on Instagram, which adds up to the whole excitement with hashtag option. 


Public posts have always appeared to anyone on Facebook, but there haven't been easy ways to find them. Now, with hashtags, it will be very easy for people to look for posts on specific topics. For instance, a public post like "I'm so excited for #madmen" will appear to anyone who looks for the term "#madmen" on the service.

In a blog post unveiling the new feature, Facebook heralded the dawn of a new age of "public conversations" on Facebook, noting that the new tool would allow users to search for hashtags via the search bar; view posts with hashtags that originated on Facebook, as well as other services; and click on hashtags in status updates to see other posts with that tag.  

Review older posts with hashtags.
When Facebook turns on the hashtag functionality, it will automatically make hashtags from previous posts clickable. If you have previously said something with a hashtag that you might not want to be surfaced to a group of friends, you might want to delete that old post. Depending on how particular you are, you might want to consider going back and making sure that you're O.K. with your old posts becoming more discoverable to your Facebook friends or to the public.
