Queen of the world, India represents itself globally in one of its kind beauty pageants in the US along with an array of other countries.
Founded by former Mrs World Alice Lee Giannetta, the Queen of the World Pageant is an inclusive, open to all platform aimed at empowering women and breaking stereotypes.
The beauty pageant recognizes the true queens of the world and that is what makes it one of its kinds of beauty pageant and aims to encourage women to follow their dreams no matter what their age. The QOTW India event was led by National Director for Queen of the World India, Urmimala Boruah.
The winners from all categories (Miss, Ms., Mrs. and Elite Mrs.) will now be headed to Morristown New Jersey, the USA along with representatives from an array of other countries. India will be representing itself across all categories for the very first time, in what truly is a rather unconventional pageant.
The winners, namely, Miss India Gitika Karwa, Ms India Krishangee Gauree, Mrs India Rohini Mathur, and Elite Mrs India Dr Reshma Jhaveri are gearing up for the big event. Gitika is a sportsperson and has represented India on international as well as national platforms. Krishangee, on the other hand, is a finance specialist, currently working in New York with an illustrious career and education. Rohini, on the other hand, is a fashion designer and influencer and works for a cause while supporting acid attack victims. Reshma, is an Ophthalmologist, a mother to two teenagers and runs her clinic.
Each of them belongs to different walks of life and aren’t professional models, something that sets this pageant apart in its attempt to create role models and not just supermodels. Without putting all the focus on looks and beauty, this pageant aims to see beyond and present before the world women who are strong-headed, doing well in their lives, and are walking the ramp for a cause that will instil a sense of pride in many others like them.
Talking about the same, India director Urmimala says, ”The pageant is all about inclusivity, and as a next step, we will now be representing the country at an international level. While this means additional responsibility, it also means a bigger platform for all the Queens who have made it to the top. I take immense pride in being a part of the pageant that tries to showcase the real queens of this world.”
The event kickstarts from 7th March onwards and the grand finale is scheduled for March 12, 2022.
