Google on Wednesday celebrated Children's Day 2018 with a unique doodle made by Pingla Rahul of Mumbai. She is the winner of the 2018 Doodle 4 Google competition in India.

The theme for this year was "What inspires me?" Rahul, who is inspired by space exploration, wrote that there is still so much more to know about the universe — from planets to stars to galaxies and beyond.

She further said that to convey her idea, she drew herself trying to see "the expanse of the space through a telescope", according to the Google Doodle archive.
