The doodle’s theme was centred around ‘what inspires me’ and Ms. More’s doodle shows faraway stars, planets, and galaxies. There is also a child looking at the sky which is filled with celestial bodies and twinkling stars.

Pingla in her statement, after the win, said:

“In my Doodle, I demonstrated what inspires me. I am extremely inspired by the Space Exploration as there is so much more to know about our Universe -- from planets to stars to galaxies and beyond. It is inspiring to learn how small we are, and how small our problems are, in the grand scheme of things. To convey my idea, I drew myself trying to see the expanse of the space through a telescope, I created galaxies, planets and spacecraft to represent the vastness of things in space. (carefully arranged to represent each letter in the Google logo).”
