The history has repeated itself after 17 long years and this time it is a girl from the state of Haryana who has brought this honor to our country. It was back in 2000 when India’s Priyanka Chopra won Miss World contest and brought home the crown. This time it’s India’s Manushi Chhillar, a 20 year old, who has made India proud by winning the beauty pageant in which 108 women participated from all around the world.

When the top five contestants were chosen, Manushi was asked a question where she had to name a profession which commands the highest salary and she gave the most heart warming reply. She said and we quote,”I think a mother is of highest respect. I don’t think its just about cash but love and respect she gives to someone. She is the biggest inspiration in my life. Mother should get highest respect.” She said that a mother deserved the highest respect and highest salary. Her reply won billions of heart and made her win the question and answer round as well.


Andrea Meza, who is Miss Mexico was the first runner up and Stephanie Hill from England was second runner up. As soon as Ms. Chhillar was crowned, our entire nation started tweeting and congratulating her. She also took to Twitter to share her crowning moment. have a look at some of those tweets:

Priyanka Chopra gave her some tips and wrote:

Well, we can’t be more proud of Ms. Chhillar for bringing this honor to our country for the sixth time since 1966. It takes hard work and dedication for a person who inspires to be a cardiac surgeon, to win a beauty pageant. As per her profile on the Miss World website, she aspires to open non profit hospitals in rural India. We wish Ms. Chhillar all the luck in the world for her future endeavors.

Keep rockin’ Gal, you made us proud.
