- A Brief about yourself and how you describe your own Personality and Persona.
Ever since I was young, my parents always taught me how to be a responsible person. A person who can take care of their owns responsibilities and duties so does I am. I am a responsible person of myself, my family, my society, my country. In order to be a responsible person I have to work hard and I believe That I am a very hardworking person. I am a person That if I think of achieving something I will work hard put all efforts to achieve the goal. I am a person which have patience, soft and calm with confidence and strong desire toward the goal. I am an independent women, I always follow what my heart. My parents they have given me an immense support and trust All these journey.
- Your Achievements that makes you feel high.
My first step towards women empowerment. I raise my voice for divorce from an arranged marriage of 8 months of my married life when I realize my marriage doesn’t base on love and care. It seems for a financial back up. If I didn’t support with that I have to live under someone where I have no right of my own which suffocate me mentally, demotivated me, I feel I have lost myself and keep questioning to myself that “I am doing right? IS this the life I wanted to live? Will I be able to smile again?” I decided for a change because if I cant stand for myself, Speak for myself, can’t put my own opinion then I wouldn’t be able to give a meaning full life and my parents doesn’t gave me birth for such life.
- Define the true beauty.
The beauty that can see in front of a mirror is not the beauty. A true beauty is what makes up a heart. The inner beauty, the inside of Us is the true beauty. A heart can feel for everyone, a heart can respect others, a heart can forgive others.
- What makes a complete, healthy and happy family for you?
No matter how the family is big or small, rich or poor, A family with love and care, transparency, acknowledge everyone ideas and thoughts, respect for other, with healthy state of mind, give hand to hand in any difficult matter, sits all together in dinning table enjoyed the meal with laughter that makes a complete , healthy and happy family.
- What is your favorite Idea of Holidaying?
Be with nature, away from the busy commotion. By God Grace I have been to many countries, have seen many a beautiful things, interacted with many humble people, I want to share all these memories who wanted to travel as a storyteller.
- Why you are participating in Mrs India Earth?
The mission of the Mrs. India Earth gives me so much of strength and Motivation that I feel another Me has born as I was going through difficult phase of my life . This incident had impacted me so.much that my inside says all women in every nook and corner need to voice out our opinion because women are also a part of humans. In order to raise our opinion we need to be strong and educated. It makes my heart shrink thinking about the orphange/underprivileged children so I will contribute my best to assist them in any form Which give me the meaning of life.
- What bothers you most about what is happening in the country today?
We are moving so fast, living in a materialistic world, if u don’t have money and power there is no value. Strong ones will dominate the weak ones in order to survived. Humanity, love, care, be helpful to each other seems to be forgotten.
- The quote or saying that encourages you.
My mom always say “don’t do anything that can hurt someone, if it happen stay strong and positive, You will get what you have done they will get what they have done. What goes around, it comes around…It’s karma.”
- What is true “Sportsmanship” for you?
We are living in a global village where there is so many culture, religion, tradition, beliefs, thoughts, man, women, children etc. As we all are living together respect each others, respect someone's culture, beliefs, traditions because we all need to live in peace and harmony. Just an example India is a country with so many varies from religion to tradition to food to clothing, if we don’t respect each other how a society will grow, how the difference between a man and women will be equal, how a country be build. RESPECT OTHERS HOW YOU WANT TO BE RESPECTED it’s a 2 way process.
- If you were selected as a Charity Ambassador what Value addition would you like to make for our Society and how?
For under privileged children/ orphanage, I would like to promote quality education because We have dreams so do they, we have potential so do they however there are so many children without quality education. I will raise awareness to people about the importance of education to be received by everyone including these children because they are also a part of us, people can give their knowledge, share their experiences and also contribute for them. 2nd things -women empowerment, India being a conservative culture where societies value are very important, it’s holds traditional, personal values however at the same time women are still kept under the shadow. There are many states /villages where there is no place for a widower/ divorcee etc because it consider as shame, all the fault is of women and it is such a horrifying thing. I have gone through in such a situation so I will strongly raise my voice to help myself, any women in my family, at my workplace, in my village, the whole state claiming that it is not all women’s fault. No one has talent to clap by one hand it needs 2 hand.
