Tell us about your family.
I have been fortunate to have a very supportive family; my younger brother, who is working as a subdivision officer at PWD has been my constant support along with my pretty mother and loving father. Both of my parents are working whereas my mother is working as a Block Education Officer and my father is School Principal in a government school. Then I met the love of my life Nitesh, to whom I got married last year in December, and I believe that he was a missing force I needed in my life. He pushes me to get better as a person and get better at life.
Quotes that keep you going, motivates you:
“Don’t hope for a life without problems; hope for a life full of good problems.”
“If you have never tried, how will you ever know if there’s any chance?”
Achievements/ Anything you are proud of yourself:
I am a proud daughter, sister, and wife. It’s my pleasure to serve those who serve the nation. In addition, I am a doctor and a paramilitary officer, which makes me more proud of myself. I am glad I can do both. As a doctor I can cure the patients and help those in need, and as a military officer, I am serving our nation.
What is Women Empowerment according to you?
For me, women empowerment is related to literacy, decision-making, and job opportunities for women and improving social, economic, and health status. Nowadays, in metro cities, females fight for gender equality and push themselves and society to make this world a better place for all genders. But, on the other hand, in rural areas, women have low literacy rates and exposure; they still manage their house chores, earn money, and take good care of the family. But, besides all this, they want to educate their children and keep pushing themselves to provide a better life for their children.
Message for society:
Please take your own decision, don’t depend on others, its your life, enjoy to the fullest but be humble and respectful to everyone. Give back to others who are less fortunate and help them in every way possible.
How will you give back to society after becoming a Queen?
I want to focus on education and the basic needs of less fortunate children by providing and seeking help from the more fortunate ones. Support is not only about money; giving time to those children will also be very crucial. Every fortunate one can spare at least an hour per week to get involved in their life. I will start with building a platform to get these things accessible to the helping hand quickly and making the complete process very transparent.
Why have you participated in Mrs India International Queen?
It’s a perfect platform to build self-confidence, feel beautiful, and learn and explore new things you haven’t experienced before. Also, If I win Mrs India International Queen 2021, it can help me become more influential so that can give back to society with higher reach.
