Not only have been my in-laws very supportive of me but they have always in all ways encouraged me to do better in all spheres of my life.
Quotes that describe you/ keep you going, motivates you.
- “Your mind is unconquerable to negative thoughts. Your thoughts and your beliefs are unshakable to negative views. The core of who you are is indestructible to immoral energy. Be strong and immovable in your values and remember that you are supreme.”
- “People spend so much time trying to be physically attractive to find love that they forget the importance of being mentally attractive. Educate yourself, address your recurring toxic thoughts, deal with your insecurities and learn to be happy on your own. That’s attractive.”
- “I am not one in a million kind of a girl. I am once in a lifetime kind of a woman.”
Achievements/ Anything you are proud of yourself.
Achievements are the building blocks that enables someone to construct a sense of themselves as a success. So, my true achievements include my sense of self dignity, my moralistic values, my holistic approach towards garnering a state of happiness, my spiritual bent of mind and most importantly the love I have earned from my friends and family.
Today, there isn’t a thing that deters me to do better. Every morning I aim to evolve as a person and every evening I feel I have enhanced myself as a being, in the realm of humanity and morality. Yes, the world measures achievements in terms of our success rate. So, my biggest achievement would be in my hands when I will walk out of this beauty pageant – Mrs India International Queen 2021 wearing a crown and walking with poise and grace.
What is Women Empowerment according to you?
Women empowerment is an enigma, the notion which should be embedded in the thought process of every woman. When a woman understands that it’s time to turn history into her story, she gets empowered. Every woman according to me is an empowered woman because she has castles inside her skin, crowns on her head and iron in her heart. She is an empowered woman who doesn’t cower before any man, who hasn’t learnt to disdain and who is righteously using her wit and brain. An empowered woman is like cleopatra and Victoria – the kingless Queens who turned kingdoms into empires.
Message for the society:
Why to hide and supress all the love we have in our hearts? This world has lost its glory and if there is one thing that can revamp this world’s story, it’s love. So, I plead this world to become a fountain of love and constantly pour love for others. Only and only love can ward off animosity, ill will, anger and ego. Let’s try to make this world a better place, let’s try to live beyond caste and race, to our actions let’s add thoughtfulness and grace, let’s not always live by the face, it’s the heart that’s important; this thought needs to be embraced.
How will you give back to society after becoming a Queen?
They say, “For it is in giving that we receive”. Once I become the Queen, I will do whatever it takes to give back to the society and make this world a better place. Quite often at such a juncture one person will think” I’m only one person what can I really do?” But it’s just that one thing that will initiate many to share what they have got. If every person did just one thing to make the society a better place, innumerable acts of kindness, acts of generosity and compassion would generate everywhere and that would surely change the face of our society. I have couple of things on my mind which I want to do for the society which include volunteering my time at local schools, using less paper and encouraging others to use less paper, driving less to restrict carbon emissions in the atmosphere, spreading love and compassion and educating the deprived children. Only when I will give to the society wholeheartedly will I actually be addressed as a QUEEN. I can’t go back and change from where it all started but I can start from wherever I am and contribute to the society.
Why have you participated in Mrs India International Queen?
I had nurtured this dream of participating in Miss India since my childhood days. But, somehow I wasn’t able to give wings to my dream. When I heard about this Mrs India International Queen, I somehow felt that this pageant is designed specially for me and the next thing I did was to fill the form to enter this pageant. I somehow felt that time has finally come to put all my fears and apprehensions on the backseat and to finally see the fulfillment of my dream. Besides, it was the curiosity for new challenges that prompted me to participate in this beauty pageant. I am an explorer and I have always aspired for trying something new . I realised that I am bigger than any problem that can come my way. I understood that the more I would push through my fears and act, the more confident and successful I will become. Hence, I joined this pageant.
