New Delhi: It is a matter of great pride for Odisha as its ‘Bahu’ (daughter-in-law) Nilanjana Sinha has won the Mrs India Earth International Title-2017.
Out of 47 finalists, Sinha was chosen as the winner of the beauty pageant competition held in New Delhi recently. Around 2000 married women had participated in the beauty competition.
Nilanjana Sinha, who was born and brought up in Madhya Pradesh, is married to a man from Odisha’s Jagatsinghpur.
Speaking about her success exclusively to KalingaTV, she said, “All credit goes to my husband and my in-laws from Odisha. Had I married anywhere, I would not have got the opportunity to participate in the competition. So, I feel privileged that I am married in Odisha.”
“I never thought that I would compete in any of the beauty competition in my life. But, I think, my husband knew that I can do something apart from my professional life and he boosted me saying it is better to do soothing rather than not doing anything. Despite the fact that I have a 20 month-old baby, my husband encouraged me to go ahead,” she added.
The Mrs India Earth International winner said that it was not quit easy for her to compete with the other contenders from various walks of life.
“All the contenders were very good. They were from different walks of life and were very successful in their respective fields. Some of them were actresses, models and doctors. However, I was not feeling inferior or nervous rather I was excited and happy that I was there to challenge so many successful ladies,” Sinha said.
Speaking about her future aim, Nilanjana said, “I want to create awareness among the rural girl children and the importance of women empowerment.”
Nilanjana Sinha is a software engineer and currently lives in London. She also does social works. She has a 20 month-old baby and enjoys satisfying her inner self as well by spending time in dancing, painting, and playing guitar.
