2) AISHWARYA RAI, MISS WORLD 1994
Q: What qualities should Miss World 2017 embody?
A: “The Miss Worlds that we have had up to date, have been proof enough that they have had compassion. Compassion for the underprivileged, and not only for the people who have status and stature. We have had people, who can look beyond the barriers that man has set up – of nationalities and color. We have to look beyond those and that would make a true Miss World. A true person. A real person.”
3) DIANA HAYDEN, MISS WORLD 1997
Q: Why do you want to be Miss World?
A: “I draw inspiration from a famous writer and poet William Butler Yeats who once wrote in ‘With Dreams begins responsibility’. Well for me, this title is that dream and the responsibility it brings, I cherish that in a small way I could make a difference and help the dreams of others. Thank you.”
4) PRIYANKA CHOPRA, MISS WORLD 2000
Q: Who do you consider to be the most successful woman living in the world today, and why?
A: “There are a lot of people who I admire and believe in, but what I think one of the most successful women who has achieved not a lot for just herself or other countries I think would be Mother Teresa. I admire her from the bottom from my heart for being so considerate, compassionate, kind and giving up her life for people in India to give up everything that she ever had to make others life beautiful, to bring a smile on people’s face and that’s what I believe in. Thank you very much.”
5) MANUSHI CHHILLAR, MISS WORLD 2017
Q: Which profession deserves the highest salary, and why?
A: “Since I’m very close to my mother, I think a mother deserves love and respect, I don’t think it’s just about salary but about love and respect you give to someone and I think my mom has always been the biggest inspiration in my life and all mothers they sacrifice so much for their kids. So I think the profession of highest respect and salary should be that of a mother.”
So, these were the amazing answers given by Indian Miss World Winners. We are very proud of all these beauty with brains.
