For her winning entry, Varsha Gupta was awarded a laptop with one year internet connection by Google along with a wining certificate. Her school also got a technology grant of Rs. 2,00,000.

While Children’s Day is generally celebrated on 20th Nov universally, India celebrates it on 14th Nov as it marks the birthday of India’s first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru. The reason why his birthday has been chosen for the celebration of children is because of his love and passion for children. Pandit Nehru is also regarded as the country‚Äôs special child to have been the first Prime Minister, after her long struggle for independence.
