Finalist Detail 2017

Aarti Buxani

  • Pune
  • A Brief about yourself and how you describe your own Personality and Persona.
  • A Sculptor and Painter by Profession, with every chisel and hardship the sculpture only gets more beautiful! That’s so me! As my skin glows with every passing year only pumping with confidence and it doesn’t matter what age I’m, my molecules believe in myself as I stand still and move stronger with every fall. My strength and gracefulness is as Sacred as my darker sides or my weak moments. Being content and being wise enough to know how content you want to be is the core of happiness for me. I love to let loose my hair fly and walk with poise as I walk my path fiercely and with dignity. Every art exhibition I hold, I share my proceeds with cancer missions. My colors add a smile on these patients and nothing brings me greater joy than this.

  • Your Achievements that makes you feel high.
  • Achieving or accomplishing makes me happy but doesn’t get me high. What makes me high is working harder, being productive and keeping it persistent throughout. Art is my passion and work doesn’t seem like work when I indulge in my passion. I’m high on energy levels with every art I create. With every art I create- I leave a mark! When you boost up your feel good chemicals- You crack open the shell and the pearl in you shines. I have many such sparks in my life and every time I sparkle, those jazzy stars lit up these accolades that make me feel high.

  • Define the true beauty.
  • Few days ago I came across this you tube video about a Syrian volunteer rescue worker who saves victims attacked by barrel bombs in Syria. Khalid Farah had already saved 2 families that day and ran to save the third one of a mother and baby. The babies cry was heard deep down in a dangerous spot. After twelve difficult hours of digging he saved the little heartbeat from three storeys which had collapsed. When he was asked if he went to see that baby again- he mentioned that he didn’t coz time was as important then as the shelling didn’t stop and he had to save many more. This is beauty! To help the worse, to hug the hurt, to kiss the broken, to befriend the lost and to love the lonely. Beauty is Ineffable!! It begins from your heart and glows right through your skin.

  • What makes a complete, healthy and happy family for you?
  • Love, trust, communication and companionship We have a family because we want love and we want that love to grow with trust. Remember marriage comes first; kids will carry on with their future so connect with your partner. Dine together! There is so much that happens on a dining table. Talk about your routines chores with each other, cheer up each other in the low moments and cheers a toast in the happy ones. Togetherness combines into a big red heart which pumps happily with intact unity and strength.

  • What is your favourite Idea of Holidaying?
  • Holidaying for me is a calling for rejuvenation! It is reviving and restoring myself with refreshing energies from a different environment. Nothing is perfect and well planned. It’s simply living like the locals and adopting their culture, environment, weather and tradition. Eating what I’ve probably never eaten before, walking on streets, watching skylines and architectures, It’s more like soaking myself in the essence of their mud and stepping back home with a tiny souvenir of that land into my memory bank. Holidaying for me is all about adding a zest and a spark into my routine cycle

  • Why you are participating in Mrs India Queen of Substance?
  • Everyone on this platform has reached a divine age filled with experiences, hardships and many have conquered accolades too. To stand here amidst these strong and dignified ladies, gets me on a high already! I’m sure this crown is not made of all jewels and jazz as it looks, I’m here participating only for one reason which is – “I know, I’m worthy to be here”. Beneath this crown are determination, will power, discipline and courage and I’m here holding all of these tight within me, I’m still my daddy’s little girl, repeating to myself “chin up princess, you are already here”.

  • What bothers you most about what is happening in the country today?
  • Nothing! This is my country and believe me- It’s beautiful. India is facing many challenges and with every hardship it only gets better. There are thousands of issues heard and seen every day but along with these issues there is awareness. Behind every problem is a solution, with every struggle there is a miraculous result. The poverty, rapes, illiteracy, atrocities done to women, black money and corruption will all eradicate with time. You have to fight against the wrongs, if not you, your children will benefit with time. If things are bothering us, we have to thrive through them, crack them open and face them as our challenges! Every citizen with sincerity, honesty and unity is responsible for India’s big bright future!

  • The Quote or saying that encourages you?
  • It’s greater than a Quote, although it’s only a word. Since I was little, it’s been my favorite word. The word is “Believe”. This word has inspired me all my life, it sounds beautiful to the ears, when you apply it to your life the results are miracles. If I add this to a quote, it adds on to its beauty. The meaning of believe is no less than God. You can’t see it but you believe in it! Believe is the epitome of all sayings and everything on this planet. Let’s hear how it sounds Believe yourself, Believe in everything you want, Believe it will happen, Believe it-It’s yours, everything is possible if you Believe. Blessed is the one who Believes! This word has and will remain to motivate me!

  • What is true “Sportsmanship” for you?
  • All great people who have created history have qualified true sportsmanship. I’ve learned from them to be persistent towards your goal with an extremely strong will power to not give up irrespective of the number of failures, irrespective of what is thrown on you, irrespective of how deep you fall – you’ve got to bounce back and overcome adversity. It is not about winning always, it is about being an inspiration to others. Don’t loose focus and play hard! Leave a mark!!

  • If you were selected as a Charity Ambassador what Value addition would you like to make for our Society and how?
  • Thousands of kids in our society live in haphazard conditions. Homeless, abandoned, poverty struck, diseased etc. There isn’t much these kids can say or do about their situation. It is the adults who are responsible for it. These children suffer from emotional abuse of feeling neglected. I want to add value by connecting and coordinating with all local organizations and children’s charity missions. . We have loads of Investors in our society but we need to evolve right strategies that can tackle issues with such kids. Help a child to develop his capabilities so that the child is able to visualize his skills that will help him earn his bread and butter in future. Open up local educational centers and make them job oriented ones so their future is secured. With quality and efficiency we can bring a smile on a child and let the child know that he is not alone. After all our kids are the future of our economy!!
