“Most of the Gujarati women are not much exposed to the outside world. They are mainly home-makers and spend their time inside the boundaries of the four walls. So, I thought to do something which will bring them out”, Bhavna Hemani told to WBRi. The man who is operating the entire pageant of Miss & Mrs India Gujrati is Minal Wakharia from Hyderabad. Mehul Meghani, Priyanka Shah and Nisha Desai are the other organizers of this event.

Jaya Misra agreed with her. “All of them have put forward their hard work and this is clear in their performances. So, for me too everyone is the winner”, said Jaya. Dimpi Mahajan stated the ‘little babies’ as very sweet. “I am having a great time here. I don’t know how the judges will judge them because for me it would be very difficult to chose one from them.”, Dimpi said.

Jessica Gomes was in-charge of the ‘grooming session’. To her, she faced the hardest time since some of the participants were not able to handle heels, some were very much uncomfortable in saris and for some make-up was the thing they have never used before. But she felt very proud when all of them performed very well. Twenty finalists (ten from each Miss and Mrs section) were selected for the ‘Question-Answer Round’ based on the combination of beauty with brain. “Standing on the stage and giving answers to the questions fearlessly is not an easy job.

This platform will help them in their future also”, said Abhishek.
