Dr. GULNAR JHA
- How you describe your own Personality and Persona.
I believe I am simple, kind hearted and straightforward person who believes in good in all and is very optimistic. I do come forward as a sophisticated person but inside I am a messy kid which is always planning and plotting a prank. I believe in living my life and not just existing. I am extreme with the emotions, I laugh till I get tears and cry until I laugh again. I am a very forgiving person as I believe people are capable of change, given a chance. I cannot agree on anything I feel is wrong and never fail to express my opinion. I can adapt myself to any situation and believe in change for good.
- Your Achievements that makes you feel high.
I don’t categorize anything as small, mediocre or large. For whenever we overcome our fear, stretch our limits, defy any boundaries we were set into, we have achieved something very precious. I have had my share of experiences and all of them give me a sense of pride cause they have carved me into whatever I am today. So be it rising from a regular student to a ranker, just cause I was made felt otherwise…choosing maths and biology for higher studies, which did challenge me a lot..Becoming radio mirchi and ponds ms fresher 2007…or my marriage to lt cdr shailesh kumar jha,an inter-faith marriage with no conversion and with parents consent.. Every single event engraved deep inside a lesson which I can never forget cause I it was instilled in me during my molting process.
- Define the true beauty.
TRUE BEAUTY is the impression we leave behind, warmth of our heart that can be felt by others, optimism of our thoughts that can inspire greatness in people in doubt, generosity of our actions that make us humane, ability to love unconditionally, memory of us that will last in peoples heart.. Basically it is the beauty of soul that defines you and remains the reminder you.. now outer beauty can be genetic beauty, easy-makeup-beauty or doctor gifted beauty. It will surely gain attention, mesmerize people but it is your inner beauty that will sustain the charm and make your presence and company worth it. Had it not been true we all wont be madly in love with our parents cause we love them for what they are and not for what they look like!
- Do you consider yourself to be a giver or taker?
I think I am both, however for different things. I believe in gaining knowledge and wisdom whenever possible as every incident and person can teach you something worthy. Rest as per materialistic things are concerned I am a satisfied person and god has been kind to me. I believe me must share whatever we have cause that what makes us human, teaches us humility, makes us realize how blessed we are. Any generosity or act of kindness spreads hope and positivity, which I guess our world needs a lot. I believe we can’t appreciate what we have till we meet people having a “need” for things we have got. It enables us to differentiate between need and want. I love the way my small gifts can light up someone’s day, makes them feel special, drifts their mind away from the hardships of life and instills hope that good things do happen! I believe try and give whatever you can afford a hug, a smile, a wish, hope motivation, support, your belongings you no longer use.. just anything!
- What is your favourite Idea of Holidaying?
Frankly for me its dress cute, buckle up some boots ,a group or my husband and I am all set to go. I love to visit new places, meet people of varied cultures and tradition, know about them, try and live like them with them for a while. I believe it makes us realize what we believe is not even important for every few 1000 miles we travel..and that we sweat on miniscule things.it widens our horizon of thought and imagination, makes you more receptive for change. every travel gives you a adventure to remember and some lovely pictures to be remembered by! Fo me beaches and mountains, along with my husband, target inner peace achieved !
- Why you are participating in Mrs India Earth?
To begin with I am kind of late for miss india.. however I wasn’t that confident enough at that age. Its more like a challenge to me and it took me several months to even think of enrolling into it. A part of me is quite shy and doesn’t like attention. But I want to overcome that and achieve something I have never had imagined..u can call it me being adventurous .Also I believe I am a very kind and optimistic person and given a right platform I can bring a good change or help people on a large scale. I want to participate actively in social welfare, and this will be just the right platform to begin with.

The raise in the temperature earth’s surface, oceans and atmosphere due to continuous efflux of green house gases(co2,co,ch4,n20) and cfc’s. excessive combustion of fossil fuel combined with deforestation is the primary cause.

- If you were selected as a Charity Ambassador what Value addition would you like to make for our Society and how?
I want to work for war widows and their families as being married to a naval officer I have fair share of understanding for the trauma and difficulties they face. Organizing workshops and enabling them to be independent and self sufficient by raising funds to support their future. Also I want to work towards child and women upliftment, by encouraging children to attend school and providing them with vocational skills necessary to make them independent. I want to be a part of counseling centres wherein anyone with any emotional stress and trauma can find the necessary help. i think it should help in decreasing the cases of violence and suicides. I also want to work for orphans helping them find families and generating a drive in society for adoption. Our society needs a slight push to do certain things, we all have good in us. We just need to realize it and this is what I want to work on. Slowly involve more and more people till we can achieve a healthy and happy society.
- Why do you think giving back to society is important?
I believe giving back to society is like an investment in a healthy future for our upcoming generations. I am a firm believer of the quote “what goes around comes around’. Sharing is reflection of care and affection, instills positive attitude in both the sharer and the sharee. Any selfless act of kindness makes you more humane and generates happiness. A happy society has a positive progressive attitude and fewer chances of any anti social activities. So I believe whatever we have earned in our life be it knowledge, wisdom, resources or monetary assets we should share a part of it for the upliftment of our society to ensure everyone flourishes together in harmony.
