In the history of India, the day and date of May 21, 1994 has been etched in gold as this was the day when a mere 19 year old Sushmita Sen created history by becoming India’s first ever ‘Miss Universe’. Readers may recall that, her prize (read ‘crown’) winning answer was the by now-historic statement, “Being a woman by itself is a gift of God which all of us must appreciate. The origin of a child is a mother, and is a woman. A woman is the one who shares love and shows a man what sharing, caring, and loving is all about. That is the essence of a woman."
Well, it seems that life has come full circle now for Sushmita Sen, as she has been chosen to be on the judging panel of the 65th edition of the prestigious beauty pageant of ‘Miss Universe’. This year, it will be the 22-year-old Roshmitha Harimurthy, who will be representing India at the ‘Miss Universe’ pageant which is to be held on January 30 at the Mall of Asia Arena, Manila (Philippines).
