This desire led me towards a completely different area. I was honored to be crowned Mrs. Bharat USA Classic 2017.However, my most rewarding moments are when I see pride and love for me in the eyes of my daughters.

  • Why you are participating in Mrs. India Earth ?
  • Motherhood changes everything. Today when I do anything, I ask myself -how will this impact my daughters? I am participating in this prestigious pageant to show my daughters the value of a big platform to achieve a bigger cause. I want to spread the awareness among young children about preserving our environment. After all this Earth belongs to the coming generations, so it is about time we teach them to take care of it.

  • What bothers you most about what is happening in the country today?
  • Our natural resources are depleting. The country is bursting at the seams. Changing weather patterns, pollution, water scarcity all are pointers to the fact that our Earth needs emergent care. We are ignoring the red flags. The fact that we will be passing this abused planet to our coming generationsreally bothers me.

  • The Quote or saying that encourages you?
  • Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.

  • What is true “Sportsmanship” for you?
  • Thinking of the team rather than yourself.

  • If you were selected as a Charity Ambassador what Value addition would you like to make for our Society and how?
  • I strongly feel that every concerted effort, big or small, goes a long way. This is a long drawn never ending task. We have to be wedded to the cause of preserving Earth. I believe the starting point is educating, talking, knowledge sharing within the community. There is a lot of buzz but it is still not enough.I will work towards organizing talks, cleanliness drives, reducing plastic and educating our future generations about the harmful impacts on Earth.
