Prineet Grewal to represent India at the global pageant at Las Vegas in June 2017
It was a proud moment for Pune-based Prineet Grewal, as she was crowned the winner of the beauty pageant Mrs India Earth 2016, which celebrates the spirit of womanhood and gives a platform to married women. 29-year-old Grewal was crowned at a gala ceremony in the presence of elite members of the fashion industry, at a hotel in Dwarka, last week after a three day long contest.
The first and second runners-up were Paris Keswani and Roshini Hassan, respectively.
The beauty pageant follows a motto of ‘Beauty with Cause’. The event gave every contestant selected environmental tasks, and over 15,000 saplings were planted in the country and abroad this year. According to the motto of the pageant, it is a hope that winners will turn into a vehicle for self-awareness and advancement of social appreciation.
Vinay Yadawa, Director, Mrs India Earth, said: “With the pageant, we want to spread awareness as well as empower them (the women).”
The event is held annually to celebrate women who personify Beauty, Talent, Intelligence and Compassion. The Indian woman in her lifetime assumes numerous significant roles that make her crucial. She in the line of Entrepreneurship considers Business Enterprises, operates them, undertakes risks and handles economic uncertainties required in maintaining a Business Enterprise.
And what inspired her to participate in Mrs India Earth?
“When I hear the word Queen, the thing that comes to my mind is a woman who is not afraid to fail, one who wears her scars like her medals and one who looks at every failure as a stepping stone to glory. That is how I lead my life as well. It’s a platform that celebrates the beauty and marvel of being a married woman – the triumphs and the positivity associated with it. It offers one a chance to represent India at an international platform. A shot at being in a list with such august company, is not one that I would want to miss”.
An HR professional with John Deere, will be next representing India at the global pageant to be held in Las Vegas, USA in June 2017. “I would give credit for my achievements to my mother and husband, who are the two pillars in my life”, beams Prineet Grewal.
