Hola DUites! We have set another milestone which is indeed a huge accomplishment as Priyadarshini Chatterjee of Hindu College, Delhi University has been crowned as “Femina Miss India 2016” at Yash Raj Studios on Saturday night. She is a native of Guwahati, alumnus of Maria Public School, Guwahati. She is a freelance model and she has varied interests like dance, theatre, travelling and trekking. The most fascinating part about her victory is that this is the THIRD CONSECUTIVE TIME that a DU student has made her way out to win the remarkable crown. We will be witnessing her representing India in Miss World 2016 soon.
Priyadarshini is not only a beautiful but an empowered woman as she believes that every woman must be spelled with three qualities – self worth, smartness and charming personality. Her advice for the youth today is to be a very positive person and not complain about whatever comes to his/her path and be eager to make the society a better place to live in.
The runner ups did a pretty well job as well. Sushruthi Krishna from Mumbai was crowned the first runner up of the most desiderative beauty pageant of India whereas Pankhuri Gidwani from Lucknow occupied the second runner up position.
The event was a hit with a mosaic of mind blowing performances by various celebrities such as Shah Rukh Khan, Varun Dhawan, Shahid Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor. The atmosphere was electrifying. The top 5 finalists were asked ‘What are the qualities of a Miss India, and why do you think you should be crowned the next Miss India 2016?’ , on the grounds of which the winner was selected.
Priyadarshini Chatterjee is an immense inspiration and Delhi University is proud to have nurtured a gem like her. On behalf of whole Delhi University we congratulate her for the prestigious title and also wish her Good luck.
