Achievements/ Anything you are proud of yourself.
Yes, I have a long list but to mention a few – I have won many awards in sports and education in my school and college, I won many performance certificates and trophies at my workplace. I won Miss. Millennium in my 10th standard in 2000, Miss. Indira Gandhi in 2002 in college and Miss. Teletext in 2018 in my office. The best achievement was 3 promotions in a span of 1 year. I have done rallies for rape victims for which I am really proud of. I am a chairperson of the WOW (Women of Worth) committee in my office (Teletext India Ltd). Last but not the least, I had received a token of love and gratitude from an 87year old lady on my visit to an old age home in 2019.
What is Women Empowerment according to you?
According to me women empowerment is giving equal rights to every woman and treating them with equal respect, giving equal opportunities, allowing them to showcase their talent in every field and letting them prove that they are no less than a man is empowering women. The world has to believe all women are important and without them world can’t exist and that is why it is really important for all of us to lift up the women around us, help them to achieve their goals and aspirations, we should look at every opportunity for raising a girl child and making her a strong woman and empower her.
Message for society:
I would like to focus on Rape Cases – I have done a lot of research, and my understanding is we need to educate our Men along with Women. Most of the rapes in India were done by uneducated men, and I am talking about educating men how to treat a woman and making them understand the difference between a woman and an object, giving sex education from class 7th.
We mainly need to change our laws, need to bring an act which will kill the rape cases once in for all. Rapists should be brutally punished and hanged to death, similar to the laws in Dubai or Gulf Countries. Our elders should understand that a woman’s dress is not the reason for rapes, it is the man’s evil mentality and this mentality should be changed.
I would love to go and educate the society about this and if more hands can join then that will help the society.
How will you give back to society after becoming a Queen?
My goal is to get on to a platform that can help me reach maximum people and serve them because as an individual it is difficult, and I am confident that Mrs India International Queen is the best platform to fulfil my dream to serve the society.
I want to form an NGO after my 50s and this platform will be the beginning of my journey as I would be visiting villages, rural areas, Orphanages and home for disabled, to educate them on different areas of life – Save girl child, stop rapes, sex education, importance of staying with your parents in their old age, educate girl child, stop dowry harassment, domestic violence, child labour and may more.
Why have you participated in Mrs India International Queen?
Getting crowned with the title is my childhood dream but as I grew up something else added to it, that is serving the society, I did lot of research before I chose one and I learnt that out of all, Mrs India International Queen is the platform which doesn’t only recognises your talent, beauty, knowledge or aspirations but also gives you a very strong platform to serve the society. It does fair selections and also helps you to add more value to your profile and the best part of this contest is that it does not expect us to change, and want us to be proud of who we are. I absolutely loved their brand motto – “Be Strong, Be Confident, Be You”. All thanks to Mrs. Ankita Saroha for creating such an amazing platform for married women.
