Is a bikini round really necessary

If you ask me then No. Its a simple question with an easy answer!
So why the hype?

Well ask the organisers, cause its actually very irrelevant to hold a bikini round when you’re truly searching for a global icon.

So why is bikini important, well simply because its a very common attire in the west and requires one to have a hard attained body and oodles of confidence to walk in it!

In the west when you’re in a bikini eyes don’t rape you unlike in our country where fully clothed attire can also land you in a soup!

And as far as the hype is concerned its actually created here by our people!

Its an easy garment and it only looks vulgar to the vulgar, or a disproportionate body!

Stay pretty

Is it ok to repeat contestants in beauty pageants?

Is it ok to repeat contestants in beauty pageants?

Recently I saw people vent out so much anger on such a noble topic as to repeat contestant another year or not.

Firstly beauty pageants like Miss India and Miss Universe are so big that the very thought of it gives a girl goosebumps and so begins her journey towards preparation.

From arranging clothes to walk to talk, to make up to coping up with the national confidence it’s a big task and even if the poor girl qualifies the first time on her own merit and is unable to win, does that mean all is lost?

Do dreams as big as this get only one chance. Also if she’s invited by the organisation again( maybe she’s deserving) everybody begs assuming, oh she’s sleeping, oh she has a jack in tooth she’s so special….blah blah blah

But then that’s how most sick minds think. Can we please stop assuming and let the girl move ahead with decisions she needs to make!

The frustration is mostly because the international crown is just not knocking on the Great Indian door.

Well good things take time, till then enjoy and appreciate the effort put in each year rather than criticising the makers, the contestants, the repeaters and winners!

Do Beauty pageants need an all Women team

Wow, an interesting thought!!
Should a pageant run for women also be done by women!

The first word that comes into mind is Safe: no compromise situation and that sure is a big valid point.

Beauty pageants directly deal with young girls who are quite vulnerable if in wrong hands!

But does it mean women don’t exploit women?

Well maybe not I’m this case…
For instance just think about these situations;

1.Guidance on physical appearance
2.discussing wardrobe especially inners
3. Being comfortable In bikini during the shoots
4. Dealing with emotional breakdown during competition

And apart from the above, the whole concept of rumors doing rounds that ” this girl is definitely winning cause she’s sleeping with the main guy” and vice versa is probably the biggest relief one would get sans the Men.

No I’m not a feminist, but enforcing an all women team can be a refreshing change and may do wonders for the So called biased beauty pageants!

Above article is based on social site trends and comments! FYI

Are beauty pageants rigged

Now it’s a quite popular question and on everyone’s mind…
Well the truth lies only in the minds of the makes are creators of beauty pageants.

But here’s a thought why would someone invest a lot if the choice was clear from day one.
Also why would the pageant take troubles to make the pageant super special for one contestants when they have an option to choose any one!

It can never be of relation because that’s illegal. Most of the times rumours like rigged do nothing but pull down other contestants. It’s disheartening to see that petty rumours can make strong candidates feel weak, powerless and finally lose out the spotlight.

The pageant is a journey, one that every contestant will cherish all their lives. So the contestants need to take it very seriously.

Most contestant take it for granted, or treat it like mini vacation. Well you can imagine the outcome if the thought is such.
Anyways beauty pageants especially like ponds femina miss India, Indian diva, miss universe, miss India, miss world… And more are of national pride and international value.

It’s been a while India got an international crown and the day that comes entire nation will go frenzy almost like winning the World Cup!

So girls pull your socks high and the hair down and get serious, because an entire nation is watching, supporting and vying for you.

Till then stay beautiful and confident

The recurring dream hasn’t let you sleep sound isn’t it?

So are you up for the challenge?

Yes, beauty pageants and Modelling are almost like a challenge you take up in life.
Its not like other professions where you report to work do your job and back home. In a sense a lot to do with travelling, adapting to new places, staying under the arclights, going for auditions time and again and phew!

This is just the beginning…

However if everything done professionally and the right way can yield great results for the future. Earlier people would criticize modelling for being a hobby or side job but today Modelling is the profession. Everybody wants to taste it…

The money is good, the travelling is great and the circles have widened. But the bigger truth is how one enters the field. Contesting at the prestigious Miss India, Miss Universe, Miss World and so many more newer pageants is a probably good/ clean start.

Wake up and work it…make your dream a reality
