Tell us about your family.
I was born and brought up in a Punjabi family, based in Delhi, married to an extremely loving and caring husband who is a pillar of my strength. He is an engineer by profession and we are happily married for last 10 years, blessed with an adorable son aged 6yrs and a beautiful daughter aged 5yrs. I am blessed to have a supporting mother-in-law who has always motivated and encouraged me to live the life of my dreams. My family is my biggest blessing and lifeline.
Quotes that describes you/ keep you going, motivates you:
- “No excuses, Push yourself because no one else would do it for you.”
- “Nothing can stop you from playing your part if you dare to believe in your dreams.”
- “Dream Big, Achieve Big”
Achievements/ Anything you are proud of yourself:
I certainly feel that I have been of service through the opportunities that came my way.
I was able to provide training and therapies to children suffering from autism and cerebral palsy along with care for the leprosy patients. It was a rewarding experience that spurred me to offer few more training sessions to the children of special needs by extending tips on physiotherapy.
I have been offering free medical consultation to the domestic and community workers. Keenly sensing, their struggles, I also funded education of 2 under-privileged kids through the SOS -Society (NGO), and created a drive to donate clothes to the needy and poor people.
Last but not the least, it was a great challenge to create a balance between family, societal and professional commitments, as I had resumed my job after a gap of four years, after fulfilling my responsibilities of caring for my young kids and also by going back on the health wagon by shedding 20kgs in the last 6 months and constantly engaging with family and friends on talks around healthy eating, exercise and spiritual regimens for the equanimity between body and soul.
I feel privileged to be a part of this pageant as it has oiled the wheels of change within me, and I intend to take this further on to many people out there.
What is Women Empowerment according to you?
To me, women empowerment means that every woman is naturally endowed with qualities of strength, resilience and great passion within them. It is just a matter of their awakening and deep resolve that translates the challenges into victories and failures into greater lessons. Once women magnify their voices and unite as a force, there is nothing that is impossible. Women are blessed with the life-creating force and their role in shaping the minds of the future generations is very vital. Women play an indispensable role in the turning the wheels of not only families, but societies and nations at large. Their contribution can truly be called as the cradles of civilization. And so, I believe that when we, women, join our hearts and hands together, we empower each other.
Message for society:
I would like to strongly voice out my thoughts for the society:
- respect and value the dignity of everyone
- forge harmonious relations
- respect the elders and give our best in raising wonderful future generations giving them values of spreading peace equality and justice.
- Strive to make the world a better place to live where everyone can enjoy and grow together.
- I request the woman of our society to be strong emotionally mentally and physically, not to become prey to domestic violence and injustice.
How will you give back to society after becoming a Queen?
There is nothing more rewarding than giving back to society and making a difference in the lives of the people of the community.
I strongly believe in “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” — Mahatma Gandhi.
Winning this contest would be one of the ways of paying back to the society. First and foremost, I would remain committed to the cause of women power and would collaborate to bring the beauty of a Queen from each life I encounter.
I would utilize my medical knowledge, expertise and experience for the betterment of people in the lower strata of the society by providing support and opportunities for their growth.
I would also extend my reach to a greater number of people by associating with an NGO, which would entail conducting seminars on female hygiene. breast feeding, educating on menstrual needs and food and nourishment issues.
I would initiate engagement for training and motivating the parents of children with special needs to use physiotherapy exercises and counselling as a means to develop the capabilities of their children, thereby create a culture of inclusion.
I also envision launching entrepreneurial training programs for women of rural India so that they can utilize their hobbies and skills to earn a living.
Why have you participated in Mrs India International Queen?
Oprah Winfrey once said, “The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.”
I strongly believe that life is a learning curve and participating in Mrs India International Queen would help me learn about the true inner beauty of strength, kindness and genuine care coupled with the outer beauty that helps us to appreciate agility and health as an important precursor to a balanced life. I believe that as we grow old, the richness of our experiences should be shared with our younger generations and our peer groups in general. I also believe that if the determination of women is strong to fulfill her dreams, the marriage and kids do not pull her back to achieve her dreams, rather it provides impetus. I want to lead the way forward by my own example and that is the only reason I present myself to all of you today.
