Python | Animated Banner showing ‘GeeksForGeeks’

Want to be fancy and create an animated banner? This program is going to print a cool animated banner to the Python console. Initially, it is suitable just for showing ‘GeeksForGeeks’. Consider it as a challenge by adding more characters yourself.

IMPORTANT NOTE:- For this to work, you have to open the file in the console, and not through the editor/IDLE.

What we have done here is a dictionary mapping the letters to their line.
These mapped indexes identify itself to each letter in the dictionary and 
also for each line in the display.
