  • Define the true beauty.
  • True beauty lies in a pure mind,heart and soul of a human being which becomes evident in the physical appearance of a person.The mental state of mind and the will to spread love and happiness around brings beauty within.True beauty can only be achieved by having clean thoughts which ultimately reflect on our face and makes us happier and a beautiful person. A good deed done in a day brings a natural smile on our face and makes us more beautiful with every passing day.

  • What makes a complete, healthy and happy family for you?
  • Family is the most precious treasure that a person can have.Without a happy family around life becomes meaningless.A complete family is when each and every individual member holds a goodwill for each other and is happy in others success and supportive in troubled times. Health is the most crucial factor for a happy family but it comes with happiness where in most of the days are well spent with each other by giving quality time to each other and spreading love,affection and care for each other.The moment we stop having ill feelings for each other like jealousy,hatred etc. we will create a happy family as it is us as individuals who have to make a family and not break it.

  • What is your favourite Idea of Holidaying?
  • Holidaying becomes exciting mainly with a great destination,great company and great zeal to explore more and more. The best idea of holidaying would be to to go with my family and friends to serene places with an overload of natural beauty which gives me abundant of space to unwind myself and relax Inorder to infuse fresh energy and enthusiasm.I like to go mainly to places that are unexplored and taste different delicacies and look forward to learning from different cultures.

  • Why you are participating in Mrs India Queen of Substance?

  • What bothers you most about what is happening in the country today?
  • Our country is secular with different cultures amalgamated in one atmosphere but there are certain issues which have spread like a virus and have infected the society and unfortunately the solution to those issues looks far fetched.The most critical issue is gender bias and crimes against female gender.I feel that a huge amount of potential that could have been nurtured has been left to die its own death as a result of rigid mindsets and differentiation.A female in most societies has been treated as an object rather than a human being and have been stereotyped as a gender which is differently abled meant to do household chores and satisfy men's needs. The crime rate against women has only been increasing with time out if which only a few cases come into limelight.

  • The Quote or saying that encourages you?
  • “Three things you cannot recover in life: the WORD after it’s said, the MOMENT after it’s missed and the TIME after it’s gone. Be Careful!” –

  • What is true “Sportsmanship” for you?
  • Sportsmanship is what defines the attitude of a person.It is atrue reflection of how positive or negative ones thought process is.The ability to achieve success comes with the power to accept a failure and to improve with every failure as it teaches us in the best way possible.True sportsmanship also comes with the ability to appreciate the competitors as all have something exceptional that we don't have.

  • If you were selected as a Charity Ambassador what Value addition would you like to make for our Society and how?
  • I would want to improve the state of female gender in our society as not all are lucky to be born in educated families.If life has given me this opportunity,I would want to spread the message of gender equality and create awareness that being physically weak does not make us mentally weak and if our skills are utilised in the right direction women who are not being given a chance in male dominated societies can do much better than what men are doing or can do. A woman has a great sense of sacrifice and tolerance which is being misused in most of the families as they don't speak for themselves out if fear and as a result are in a lose lose situation. I would value add to this cause by reaching out to the victims of crime or orthodox conservative societies by setting up special awareness centres where we as educated women can spread the message to the society to bring out the talent in women so that they can create an importance for themselves in the society.I would personally motivate them to realise their true potential and feel strong from within to face every challenge they face.
