Mrs. S Kulshrestha
- A Brief about yourself and how you describe your own Personality and Persona.
I am a woman of the 21st century, independent in my financial ability and in my intellectual pursuits. I believe wholeheartedly in healthy living and positive thinking. This is my mantra of life, for me and my family as well.
I am a certified fitness instructor, training people and motivating them to adapt a healthy lifestyle. I am also a trained classical dancer and that is my stress buster too. I have a small family, which includes my husband and my 10 year old daughter. They are the steel in my spine, and my biggest critics as well. It’s because of them I am a part of this big event Mrs. India Earth.
- Your Achievements that makes you feel high.
I consider every moment given to us as a chance to shine, to do things differently, to think anew, and hopefully, bring a smiles on the faces of people we meet. Life well lived is an achievement in itself. However, if I have to single out one event, I will consider my recent Gold Medal win at Yoga Guru International summit in New Delhi as the moment which gave me a special high.
Also, when my students come with a note of appreciation, telling me how confident and good they feel when they look at their healthier self, I feel an emotional high.
- Define the true beauty.
I believe true beauty lies deep within you. A healthy body, a positive mind, a pure soul and sweet tongue makes a person beautiful, irrespective of colour, creed or age.
- What makes a complete, healthy and happy family for you?
A complete healthy and happy family is a safe space to come home to, where there is unconditional love, warmth and acceptance. A place where one has the freedom to share all the ideas, thoughts, fears and apprehensions, without the fear of being judged negatively. Members of a happy family care for each other’s well-being and healthy lifestyle. Place where each one receives the due respect and affection.
- What is your favorite Idea of Holidaying?
Somehow, the idea of holidaying always brings me to beautiful white sand beaches, with clear blue waters and friendly nariyal paani walaas! I love water sports and sea food. I love lazing around on a beach for hours, with the laughter of my loved ones ringing clear in my ears.
- Why you are participating in Mrs. India Earth ?
As every other Indian citizen, I too have a desire to contribute to betterment of my nation. Also being a part of a beauty pageant has always been my dream.
Mrs. India Earth is a celebration of beauty with responsibility. It gives me chance to make a difference with social causes it endorses. This way the Mrs. India Earth pageant brings my desire and dream together.
- What bothers you most about what is happening in the country today?
As one of the most ancient nations in the world, India has always celebrated diversity and tolerance. India has always given a safe haven for all sorts of people suffering prosecution. Acceptance and affection is the basic characteristic of my nation. But, today I see the growing specter of intolerance that is threatening to change the very idea of Indian-ness. The society is showing cracks along the fault lines of caste, creed, language and economic ability.
I dearly wish to pass on the same loving and affectionate nation to my child that I inherited from my ancestors. This changing nature of our society today worries me the most.
- The Quote or saying that encourages you?
Do unto others what you would have them do unto you.
- What is true “Sportsmanship” for you?
To me true sportsmanship means giving my utmost best shot at everything I pursue, without being effected by the outcome.
- If you were selected as a Charity Ambassador what Value addition would you like to make for our Society and how?
I feel the most precious gift one can give to someone in suffering and need is love and acceptance. If I was chosen to be the Charity Ambassador, I shall do my best to make the weakest in the society feel accepted and heard. I shall give them a chance to tell their tales and I will use my position to amplify their voices.
