I've always wanted to be Miss India. I would watch beauty pageants as a child, wanting to be part of one. When I came to Mumbai, I decided to give Miss India a shot.
Winning the title was an amazing surprise. I don't think I was prepared for it. It seemed so unreal for days after I won. Slowly, I realised my responsibilities, as I had to represent my country abroad. My trip to the Miss Universe pageant was also good. I came in the top ten but didn't win. It was disappointing because I had really worked hard for it.
When I finished my Miss India commitments, Chocolate came along.
