You were among the top 21 finalists in Miss India 2015. How was the experience at that time?
I was among the top 21 finalists of Femina Miss India in 2015 and honestly, I was new to pageantry with minimal knowledge of the same. Being a tom boy all my life, I definitely learned a lot and was able to work on my feminine side as well.
What’s the difference between then & now?
Ah! It has been a journey full of learning for me since 2015. I have grown as a person and various events in my life led me to connect to myself on a deeper level. I have been practicing meditation for years now and that truly helped me discover myself. And I truly believe, on a platform like Femina Miss India it is very important to show yourself and for that, you need to know yourself.
What do you think were the judges were looking at while deciding the state winners?
I am sure the judges look for someone who can represent the essence of India globally. I personally have so much to offer in terms of Indian culture through Hindustani Classical Music or being a Modern Indian Woman who is confident to be herself. And these are some important aspects that the judges definitely look for in deciding the winners.
Did you always want to be Miss India?
I always wanted to bring glory to my Nation. Being a granddaughter of a patriot, it has been my childhood dream to bring pride to India. Along with that, I am a compassionate person. Miss India was totally Universe’s calling in 2015, a platform that provided me the opportunity to fulfill both these purposes. However, over time, the purpose, the dream & the vision only became stronger and here I am today.
