17 years after Priyanka Chopra won the title, India's Manushi Chillar crowned Miss World 2017

For a brief decade, from 1992 to 2000 to be precise, India could do no wrong in the beauty pageant circuit. Our dream run started with Madhu Sapre being the second runner up at  Miss Universe 1992. This was quickly followed by the landmark Sushmita-Asihwarya feat in 1994. Sushmita Sen was crowned Miss Universe and Aishwarya Rai won the title of Miss World the same year. This feat was repeated in 2000 when Lara Dutta went on to be crowned Miss Universe and Priyanka Chopra, Miss World. Then there was a bit of a lull. But this year, twenty-one-year-old Manushi Chillar from Haryana has been crowned Miss World 2017 at a glittering  event held at Sanya City Arena in China.

Chillar studied at St. Thomas School in New Delhi and Bhagat Phool Singh Government Medical College for Women in Sonepat.

In the question and answer round post getting the top five spot, Manushi was asked: “Which profession deserves the highest salary and why?” She replied: “I think a mother is of the highest respect. I don’t think its just about cash but the love and respect she gives to someone. She is the biggest inspiration in my life. Mothers should get the highest respect.”

Ahead of the competition, she told PTI, “Though I was a medical student, I never had a plan B. I don’t want to regret anything in life, so it was really important for me to win this competition. My aim has always been to win the Miss World title.”

Haryana CM, Manohar Lal Khattar was quick to congratulate her after the win.
