The international beauty contest in Turkey on October 8 has made history in Nepal. On this day, a Nepali was able to achieve for the first time the highest title in the history of international beauty pageant. This Nepali was also a little girl just 11 years old, Bipaswi Poudyal who has proved that Nepalese are not less than others. She became the pride of every Nepali.
4 feet 5 inches tall beauty queen Bipaswi from Bishalnagar, Kathmandu won the title of Little Miss World 2011, held in Sunny Antalya, Turkey on October 8 leaving behind 39 contestants who were representing 35 different countries. Bipaswi also won the title of Miss Congeniality. She was accompanied there by her parents and the country director of Nepal, Mr. Deependra Ratna Shakya.
Nepal was represented in this international pageant for the first time and in the first attempt, Nepal received such a glorious title.
Speaking at the Tribhuvan International Airport after her return to Nepal on October 9, Bipaswi revealed that the competition was challenging due to the language barrier but eventually even managed to make friends there. The judgment was done on the basis of talent and discipline.
Her impressive answer to the final question, “What is your family tradition?” was “We go to all the temples, celebrate every festival and pray together. In our culture we respect everyone” that helped her in bringing home the glory. In the talent round, she danced to the tunes of “Nachu Nachu Lagyo Malai…” with traditional Nepali gunyo cholo dress that grabbed the attention of the crowd, said Deependra R Shakya.
