Six Answers That Brought The Prestigious Crowns Home


Priyanka Chopra is all set to present at the Oscars and we couldn’t be more proud. The former Miss World has been using her intelligence along with beauty to represent India in the International arena for over 15 years now. but Priyanka’s general knowledge back then might not leave you much impressed. Nevermind, she donned the Miss World crown, so she is absolved. Apparently, every Indian beauty who brought home a prestigious crown had to use their intelligence and calm in that most demanding moment of decision. Check out how your favorite Miss India tackled the questions, battling the butterflies in their stomachs.

Sushmita Sen – Miss Universe 1994 A perfect embodiment of an independent Indian woman is Sushmita who was challenged with the question, “What is the essence of being a woman?” To which she provided “I think being a woman, by the very fact itself, is the gift of god. The origin of a child is a Mother, and is a woman. She is the one who shows man what caring, sharing and love is all about.” Aishwarya Rai - Miss World 1994 I will deliberately choose to drop the surname ‘Bachchan’ here because we are talking about the beautiful young girl who brought home the Miss World Crown not the Bachchan Bahu. Way back in 1994, the question thrown at her was: “What qualities should Miss World 1994 should embody?” The answer that won her the crown and the audience was “The Miss World’s that we have had till date, have been proof enough that they have had compassion, compassion for the under privileged, not only for the people for who have status and stature, who can look beyond the barriers that man has set up for ourselves of nationality, colour. We have to look beyond that and that will make a true Miss World, a true person, a real person. Thank you!”

Diana Hayden – Miss World 1997 Unlike the question-answer rounds every year, in 1997, the finalists had to deliver a speech. And Miss India, Diana Hayden’s crown winning speech was “Good Evening ladies and Gentlemen, in what i would like to say tonight, I draw inspiration from famous writer and poet, William Butler Eyes, who once wrote in dreams begin responsibility. Well, for me, this title is that dream. And in the responsibility it brings I cherish that in some small way, I could make a difference and help the dreams of others. Thank You.”

Yukta Mookhey – Miss World 1999 Starting in a lighter humor she was asked what was her favorite food and she replied that she loved Thai food. Moving on to more weighty questions, “If you could be anyone in the world, who would it be?” was the next to which Yukta’s answer was, “Well, it will have to be Audrey Hepburn. It was her inner beauty and compassion and her aura, the calm that she had inside, the woman in her that reflected. Moving on, she was also asked, “Apart from your home country, where in the world you most like to live.” “I would like to go to, Paris.” She provided siting the city’s romantic environment.

Lara Dutta - Miss Universe 2000 Lara had to toil a very practical question where beating around the bush was just not an option. The question was, “Right now there is a protest going on right outside here calling the Miss Universe Pageant disrespectful of women. Convince them they are wrong.” To which Lara answered: “I think pageants like the Miss Universe pageant gives us young women a platform to foray in the fields that we want to and forge ahead, be it entrepreneurship, be it the armed force, be it politics. It gives us a platform to voice our choices and opinions, and makes us strong, independent that we are today.”

Priyanka Chopra - Miss World 2000 Well, Piggy Chop was just a 17 year old when she had to tackle the question: "Who do you think is the most successful woman living today and why?” And the teenager crown bearer replied: “There are a lot of people I admire, but one of the most admirable people is Mother Teresa, who has been so compassionate, considerate and kind.” Now this is one of those moments when I could have used the face-palm emoji, had it existed was back in the year 2000. What is weirder is, not only the nervous contestant forgot that Mother Teresa had passed away in the year 1997, even the judges were clueless of the current events around the world. Well, perhaps they considered the word “living” metaphorically. Yes, the spirit of Mother Teresa is immortal and the mere mention of her name is enough to get anyone brownie points.
