Priyadarshini Chatterjee from Guwahati, Assam, was crowned Femina Miss India World 2016 on April 9 2016 at the 53rd edition of the magnificent and majestic coronation ceremony of Miss World pageant. The beauty queen clinched the coveted title and the crown after a tough competition, defeating 20 other beautiful aspirants. She has now made her mark and carved a niche for herself in the history of Indian beauty contests.

Priyadarshini will now represent India at the International event of Miss World 2016 while the other two winners will participate in the Miss International 2016 and Miss Grand International beauty pageant 2016.

“It is an amazing feeling to win the crown!” exclaims and excited Priyadarshini reveling in her victory and showing me her sparkling crown. “Initially you cannot believe your ears. You feel very strange to hear your name being called out as the winner. It is only after some time that the truth really sinks in. After a few minutes of the announcement, I said to myself, yes, I am Miss India World 2016. Then it is all celebrations. I am extremely thrilled and excited to win this prestigious crown. It means a lot to me and to those who encouraged me to participate. I have proved their confidence in me.”

The contest for the crown can be a very grueling task with a lot of stiff competition and tight schedules. However, she received a lot of support and motivation from her family and friends, who would pep her up while she was at the competition and lift up her mood and inspire her to succeed.
Priyadarshini herself admits, “The most difficult part of the competition was to maintain my emotional state. I felt extremely pressurized. That is the time when you are tested. You have to balance it out between keeping your cool and participating in the various rounds and succeeding.”

Does winning the title take away the beauty of a normal life and a good education, I ask her. “I am still the same person,” she replies. After the international competition and on completing all her responsibilities as the title holder, Priyadarshini hopes to complete her studies. “Success to me is achieving what you want to achieve and fulfilling the dreams you have. You have to be internally satisfied and not driven by what people want you to achieve.”

I kept telling myself throughout the competition that we are here to learn.” Priyadarshini is excited about the international pageant ahead and is determined to win the crown.
