Manushi Chhillar made us all very proud when she was crowned Miss World at the recently held Miss World Beauty Pageant. She brought home the crown after seventeen long years and the last time India held the title was when Priyanka Chopra had won it. It was quite evidently a celebratory moment for everyone and she also very sportingly replied to Shashi Tharoor‘s joke on her name too.
After seeing the pomp around the win, ex Bigg Boss contestant Sofia Hayat took to Instagram to diss the pageant, calling it outdated. She made some very valid points and questioned its relevance – like who decides what is beautiful in today’s times? Check out her thought-provoking post here.

Are they still running this contest..I though it died with the dinosaurs .. who judges beauty these days when beauty does not have a single face or form..you gotta laugh at such prehistoric ideals..beauty is not there to be judged..why isn't a woman in a hijab there..or a somalian with a lip plate there..or a painted American Indian..or a transgender..are they not beautiful?..why is there not a size 16 woman with curves or a bald woman? Miss World is out dated..the real Miss World..is a woman who is Mother nature..a woman with a child..a woman who has stretch marks on her body to show she has lived..to show she like the world..is diverse and different..but mostly..Miss World..would never allow herself to be judged by the standards of others..let alone a committee! Here is to the real Mrs and Miss Worlds of this beautiful planet. Our World..our earth..does not judge her children. Namaste Shalom Salaam. Gaia Mother Sofia Allah Maa
