- Define the true beauty.
â€œBeauty is a truth and truth beauty, that is all ye know on earth and all ye need to knowâ€ Keatos. I donâ€™t believe in the beauty of skin which is temporary but beauty of heart .External beauty pleases the eye but internal beauty captures the heart. I find true beauty in nature, the blooming of the flowers, flowing scene of rivers, the beauty of clouds and the blue sky. I find the beauty in the smile of child, in the love of mother for the child, in human and family relationship.
- What makes a complete, healthy and happy family for you?
A happy and healthy family is the one where everyone has mutual respect in relations and is concerned about each otherâ€™s well being. The most important relationship is between husband and wifeâ€™ because they are the first teachers of their children. Care of elderly people, their respects inculcate deep roots in the mind of children. Before the birth of children, parents should equip themselves for challenge of parenthood. Proper upbringing of children, love, and discipline, being together in good or bad times are the true bases of happy family.
- What is your favourite Idea of Holidaying?
Holidaying should be such that one should be free the drudgery of life and feel completely relaxed and joyful. Destination is most important; choose a hill station for summers and warmer place during winter holidays. One should completely relax and enjoy with some games and delicious food. One must live in nature, go for walks, and enjoy natural and manmade beauties, dance and music. One should forget worries. Holidaying with friends, family and colleagues improve relationships and life becomes easy.
- Why you are participating in Mrs India Earth?
I am participating because I love myself, believe myself and want to prove to myself that I am unique and would love to win Mrs. India Earth. Love being in front of Camera though never got an opportunity to do so professionally. Also so that I can inspire all married women to pursue their dreams.
- What bothers you most about what is happening in the country today?
Though India is a country of unity and diversity and self sufficient nation, few things bother me most. Female feticide and disrespect of woman by rapes, acid throws, beating, harassment, dowry deaths, domestic violence, are really disheartening. Proper civic sense is lacking in cities regarding cleanliness, traffic rules and respect of the elders. There is a huge trench between the rich and poor. The state of farmers is most callous. The cost of good education is not affordable to all and youth today is involved in antisocial activities which are very disheartening.
- The Quote or saying that encourages you?
- What is true â€œSportsmanshipâ€ for you?
True sportsmanship according to me is politeness, respect for your opponent, gracious behavior both in victory and defeat, not only in the fields of sports but in every walk of life. The feeling of hate, competition anger, and racism should never be a part of your personality. Be it your work place, be it a social circles or public life. You should always keep yourself cool and behave well with all. One should not differentiate between the rich and the poor, and respect all as human beings. Life is a part of sport and your sportsmanship qualities will let you win all hurdles in life.
- If you were selected as a Charity Ambassador what Value addition would you like to make for our Society and how?
If, I am selected as a charity Ambassador; I want to add more values which I have learned from life and educational institutes. I work for Rotary International that has taught me the values that all citizens of world are one. As it is due to electronic revolution and open markets of multinational companies, the world has come closer. I would like to take advantage of this internationalized scenario for the betterment and development of our society at large. The downtrodden, the poor farmer in the rural areas should be educated, means to boost his crops. Inculcate new ideas in the youth for better achievements in life.
