Today’s Doodle is a lovely cartoon created by the seven-year-old Divyanshi Singhal of Gurugram. Divyanshi won the 2019 Doodle competition for Google in India, after which her Doodle was selected for the occasion. A theme of the contest was “When I grow up, I think”
The doodle depicts trees wearing shoes and is named “The Walking Tree.” The doodle, according to the seven-year-old, indicates that she wants to have walking trees in the future to tackle the problem of deforestation.
As per Divyanshi, when she visited her grandma, she came up with a lovely idea, and she explained, “When I visited my grandma, I was so sad to see the trees around her house being cut. So I thought that if the trees would walk or float, we wouldn’t have to cut them.”
“When I grow up, I hope the trees of the world will be able to walk and float. The land could be cleared so quickly without causing them to die. There would be so little erosion and people could just tell the trees and their friends to move to another location.”
