  • A Brief about yourself and how you describe your own Personality and Persona.
  • My name is Bhuvanmala Pushpala. I come from a middle-class family. I was born and brought up in West Bengal. I worked and stayed in New Delhi for a few years. I got married in 1991 and have since then been staying in Mumbai. I consider myself a very hardworking, sincere, honest, energetic, organised and dutiful individual. I run a small catering business wherein Authentic Andhra food is served. I am very passionate and dedicated to my work. I am very ambitious and determined to achieve my goals. I feel you are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream. I have always believed in helping others selflessly without any greed but with love and care. I am a very God-fearing person and I believe a God-fearing woman is always beautiful from the Inside-out. Being genuine and real is what keeps me humble and my good thoughts, my honesty and sincerity keeps me going.

  • Your Achievements that makes you feel high.
  • Achievements that make me feel high are that I can proudly say that I have always been a very good daughter, sister, wife, daughter-in-law, and a mother. I have always performed my duties and responsibilities very well, wholeheartedly, with great love and care towards my family. In spite of coming from a small town a place called Chittaranjan I have managed to work in International Airport New Delhi as well as in a Japanese company Mumbai and I have received best employee award for my performance, behaviour, achievements, loyalty, sincerity and dedication towards my work. For 3 years I have been running my catering business single-handedly and simultaneously taking care of my family and my aged parents. The struggles, sufferings, challenges I have overcome and the lessons I have learned and now the way I carry myself with complete confidence and positive attitude makes me feel high. My recent and biggest achievement for which I am extremely happy and excited is when I got selected as Finalist for Mrs India Queen of Substance 2023.

  • Define the true beauty.
  • The definition of Beauty varies between people, to some beauty is solely dependent on how a person looks on the outside but, in my view, beauty is in the soul, True Beauty lies in the purity of the heart. True Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. According to me True Beauty is about being honest and good human being, true to yourself, being real being truthful, being sincere and natural not fake or pretentious. True Beauty is the purest feeling of the soul, beauty arises when the soul is satisfied. True Beauty is understanding someone's pain and difficulties, helping or doing things for those in need, wholeheartedly, selflessly without any greed but with love and compassion. True Beauty is when you sacrifice your happiness for the happiness of others and make life beautiful for them. I feel every single person in this world is unique and beautiful in their own way. True Beauty is about being comfortable in your own skin and loving yourself unconditionally. When you learn to love yourself fully you can create a happy and loving environment for others too.

  • What makes a complete, healthy and happy family for you?
  • To me a family is complete, healthy and happy when the members of the family are caring, loving and they have respect for each other. A variety of factors can contribute to a complete, healthy and happy family. Support - Family is the biggest support system. Anything is possible when you have the right people to encourage and support you. To me Family means putting your arms around each other and willing to do anything for each other. Open communication - Families benefit a lot from open communication. Listening to each other with full attention, sharing thoughts and feelings without criticising each other, discussing and working together to solve problems and conflicts. Everyone takes on their own responsibilities and commitments. Sharing - Sharing and caring about each other, spending quality time with family, eating and playing together. Going on regular family outings and holidaying together. Celebrating festivals and special occasions as per family traditions. Acceptance- Accepting the differences, giving space and respecting each other's point of view. Always put your immediate family first, you will never go wrong nor have any regrets. There is a saying if you want to change the world go home and love your family. To me what really matters is feeling safe and secure with each other, trusting each other, that the people I love are happy and healthy.

  • What is your favourite Idea of Holidaying?
  • My favourite idea of Holidaying is perfect plan, favourite destination, perfect people which includes my family and friends preferably travelling to a serene place, where we can relax, enjoy nature's beauty, explore beautiful places, enjoy the weather, food and capture happy moments in the camera. Hill stations are always my first choice when it comes to holidaying. I love to visit calm, peaceful and close to nature places where I can enjoy Nature's beauty and incredible craftsmanship. My idea of holidaying means taking part in different activities, long walks, enjoying, relaxing, to be refreshed and doing everything that gives me immense pleasure. One reason why I love travelling to new places is because I can meet different people and experience different cultures and their traditions.

  • Why you are participating in Mrs India Queen of Substance?
  • Participating in a beauty pageant is a once in a lifetime experience. It's a dream come true. I feel entering in a Beauty pageant will make a very big change in my overall personality which includes confidence, communication skills, learning skills, public speaking, walk, talk, conquer stage fear, learning how to pose in front of the camera, meeting lots of new people, making friends, travel, explore and make beautiful memories. Just competing in a beauty pageant is so satisfying and challenging and makes you more disciplined, confident and better understanding of yourself. Time for self-love -I am so happy that Finally I am doing something for myself. One of the main reasons for participating in this pageant is social causes and charity work. For me it's time to contribute and give back to society. I want to actively support girls and women of Adivasi community of nearby villages, in the field of education and women empowerment. This will give me immense satisfaction and happiness of making a change in somebody's life...

  • What bothers you most about what is happening in the country today?
  • What bothers me most about what is happening in the country today is an increasing number of aged parents are being abandoned by their own children. I feel abandoning parents and dumping them in old age homes is one of the worst crimes children can commit and it just leaves the parents devastated. Today's youth are finding it difficult to take care of their aging parents due to social, financial and personal problems. The relationship between parents and children has undergone a drastic change over the last few decades. This change has certainly affected the way children interact with their parents. In fact, many of them have become disrespectful towards them. Since they repeat the same behaviour outside their home, it has a negative effect on society as well. There are several reasons for this disturbing trend. Parents have unconditional love for their children, and they sacrifice a lot for them. After all the sacrifices, if a parent doesn't even get love and respect imagine the trauma they suffer. I feel one of the most important things we can do as children is to take good care of our ageing parents when they need us the most. This will ensure that they live out their lives with dignity, grace and peace.

  • The Quote or saying that encourages you?
  • The Saying that encourages me is "Honesty is the best policy" One of the best things my parents taught me is to be honest and truthful under any circumstance. Honesty is a reflection of the thoughts and feelings of a person. Honesty refers to the high morals and truthfulness of a person. Honesty makes one's life simple and free from all complications. An honest person can face any situation in life through confidence and courage. Honesty gives us a positive opinion on life and others. An honest person is always regarded as a role model in society. An honest person will always stand up for what is true and right. Honesty can improve mental and physical health. I feel Honesty is essential for social progress and development around the world. Honesty is not to break any rules and regulations, behave well, be disciplined, speak the truth, be punctual and help others honestly. Being honest helps a person to get trust of all in the family and in the surroundings as well. Being honest is really very beneficial in real life with lots of happiness and blessings from the Supreme Power.

  • What is true “Sportsmanship” for you?
  • True Sportsmanship is playing fair and handling both victory and defeat with grace, style and dignity. True Sportsmanship is having a positive attitude, responsible behaviour, self-disciplined and generally treating opponents and officials with courtesy, generosity and respect. Self-disciplined behaviour is very important, which enables us to stay focused in order to achieve our goals. True sportsmanship is getting along with others, helping and supporting your teammates. If you win or lose, be respectful, be supportive, learn from your mistakes, shake hands, it's a good sign of respect for the other people involved. True sportsmanship goes beyond the game it starts with respect.

  • If you were selected as a Charity Ambassador what Value addition would you like to make for our Society and how?
  • If selected as Charity Ambassador I would like to work on "save the girl child and educate the girl child" and women empowerment. I would like to enhance the standard of life of Tribal women by raising awareness about poor health, sanitation and hygiene, health and nutrition, livelihood training and education programs because Tribal women in India are socially and economically weak. I would love to attend the events to promote awareness of the charity, to talk about our work and also encourage others to get involved in fundraising activity and help the Tribal women to lead a better life.
