Working parents and guardians can finally rest easy when their children are at school or with their nanny.

We all wake up to a new Google doodle every day. Here are 10 of our faves

September 17, 2011 Occasion: Anant Pai’s 82nd birthday Why we like it: Uncle Pai brought us our childhood favourites, Amar Chitra Katha and Tinkle, and we can’t think of a person more deserving of Google’s tribute, especially since he passed away that year.
