Today is Children’s Day in India and to commemorate the occasion Google paid tribute to former Prime Minister of India Jawaharlal Nehru with an adorable doodle.

Children’s Day is celebrated all over India on November 14, 2019 every year. The day signifies the importance of increasing awareness of the rights, care and education of children.

It is held on 14 November in order to pay tribute to Nehru, who was also fondly known as Chacha Nehru among children.

Today’s Doodle is an adorable cartoon which was made by a seven-year-old, Divyanshi Singhal from Gurugram. Divyanshi won the 2019 Doodle for Google competition in India, after which her Doodle was picked for the occasion. The theme of the competition was "When I grow up, I hope"

The doodle features trees wearing shoes and is titled "The Walking Tree". The doodle, according to the seven-year-old signifies her hope of having walking trees in the future to combat the problem of deforestation.

According to Divyanshi, she came up with the delightful idea when she visited her grandmother, she explained, "When I visited my grandmother, I was so sad to see the trees around her house being cut. So I thought that if trees could walk or fly, we will not have to cut them."

She further added, "When I grow up, I hope the world’s trees can walk or fly. The land could be cleared so easily without making them die. There would be so little deforestation and humans can just ask the trees and their friends to move to another place."
