What is Women Empowerment according to you?

Women empowerment according to me is about giving women equal opportunities to prove ourselves. Merely providing opportunities is also not enough we need to be given an environment that helps us to unleash our inner potential. Man and woman are physiologically and psychologically different there is no denying the fact but women deserve an equal chance to prove their worth. It is about making jobs more flexible for them . It is about giving more women the chance to lead , empowerment is believing that a group of men being led by a woman will do equally well if not better . It is all about perspective. Long gone are the days when women were bound to the four walls of their home. Let no girl dream and realise that she must restrict herself due to the society she is in, may she dream without restrictions knowing in the back of the mind that her journey won’t be hindered.

Message for the society:

My message to the society is to leave behind the relics of the past and move ahead in life. It is indispensable for one to be as optimistic as one can be to do well in life. Life is very short and if you don’t stop to look around once in a while you could miss it. You don’t need to travel abroad or spend senselessly to live life, that is just crazy.

You need to find joy in the little things. It could be the first ray of the sun every morning or the late night radio song that matches the vibe of the moment it could also be that perfect cup of tea you brew for yourself everyday. It is important to find joy in everything. A life well is only one where in you die once, when your soul leaves the body. Dying before that, not really living happily, is just insane because there is no afterlife.

How will you give back to society after becoming a Queen?  

I will use my title to spread awareness about societal issues. My title will help attract a larger audience which can be educated about the issues and ways to resolve it. I am already a volunteer at an NGO that works to aid cancer affected patients. I hope to one day open an NGO of my own to support a cause. Until then I will do the work of spreading awareness and will volunteer at organisations.

Why have you participated in Mrs India International Queen?

I wish to make an identity for myself and prove my worth to people which is why I believe I could not have found a better platform to start my journey. I want to instil a thought in every woman who like me is merely ordinary, that you needn’t be out of the world to have the right to dream and pursue that dream. I want to give hope to all those ladies, who shy away just at the thought of being ordinary, that they must step out and give a shot to their dreams. By participating in Mrs India International Queen I stand not just for myself but for all those who are too shy to come up yet. I hope to give them strength and confidence.
