Well, everyone who says that beautiful girls do not come with a brain should probably meet Manushi Chhillar- the Haryanvi beauty who brought home the ‘Miss World’ crown after 17 years. Chhillar made every Indian proud by being crowned Miss World 2017 beating 108 contestants from different countries. While Manushi is a complete package of beauty and brains, what amazed us as well as the judges was the final answer that she gave in the Question and Answer round. The panel asked her which profession, in her opinion, deserves the highest pay and why. The 20-year-old won everyone’s heart with the answer that she gave. And it wouldn’t be wrong to say that the answer that she gave, brought her the golden ticket to the title. Here’s what Manushi replied…
“I think a mother deserves the highest respect and when you talk about salary it’s not always about cash but I feel it’s the love and respect that you give to someone. My mother has always been the biggest inspiration in my life. All mothers sacrifice so much for their kids. So, I think it is the job of a mother that deserves the highest salary.” said Manushi.
Manushi has been involved in many social activities ever since she won the Miss India title like the campaign for menstrual hygiene.
While talking to the media Manushi said that the cause is close to her heart and she has managed to make a difference in the lives of 5000 women in her own ways.
She also said that if an organisation like Miss World supports the cause, it could reach a different level all together.
Manushi made it to the top 5 along with contestants from England, France, Kenya and Mexico.
The official announcement about the victory was made in the pageant’s official Twitter account. ‘The winner of Miss World 2017 is Miss India Manushi Chillar’ read the tweet.
The first and second runners-up were Miss England Stephanie Hill and Miss Mexico Andrea Meza.
The 20-year-old is a medical student and her inspiration is Reita Faria, the first Indian to win the title in 1966.
