What is Women Empowerment according to you?
India is a country filled with diverse cultures. But the Indian society has always been a patriarchal one which is why women have been continuously denied basic human rights such as education and equality. For a country like India, women empowerment will be a greater role in its growth and development. In both biological and moral context, women possess greater abilities to shape the future and development of a family as well as society as a whole. Thus, equal opportunities should be given every woman to help them fully grow as an individual and make their own choices.
Message for the society:
I would convey to society, let people live the way they want to be, its individual’s choice and decision how they want to take this.
I am personally not against men, men and women both plays important role to keep nature balance. Only thing is, please understand Women’s point and opinion too.
There are cities where girls are not getting good education, some of them go to school, but the education quality is so poor that they can do much with that education. If the society will seriously think with our education system I think we can overcome with many problems.
Very recent thing which I have also experienced that, if you are married and mother, you company will not support to that extent because they think you will you will not be able to serve as they expect. That is something demotivates us.
How will you give back to society after becoming a Queen?
I have my dream to do something for orphan kids and old age people.
Being a mother when I see orphan kid’s life that time I realise how my daughter is privileged and how these kids are raised in so much of challenges.
Why have you participated in Mrs India International Queen?
Most of the girls dream to be crowned, I was also one of them, wanted to showcase my self-esteem, confidence and personality, however it’s was not that encouraging being in city like Allahabad, but my dreams were always to fly with my big wings. It’s a saying “BETTER TO BE LATE THAN NEVER”. I believe in this platform I will definitely achieve what I always used to write in my slam book as day-dream.
