Dikshya is Miss Global International 2011

In an event held in Kathmandu on August 6, 2011, Dikshya Singh Lama was crowned the Miss Global International 2011. In the contest, Apekshya Pradhan was awarded the first runner-up and Tripti Shah was second runner-up.

The 19 year-old Miss Global 2011, Lama, received Rs. 30,000 in cash, a Scooty and a scholarship of $700 to study in foreign country. The first runner-up received Rs. 20,000 in cash, and a scholarship of $500 to study in foreign country. Second runner-up Tripti received a cash prize of Rs. 15,000 and a scholarship of $200 to study in foreign country.

Miss Global started last year awarding the crown to Selina Moktan as the first Miss Global 2010. Last year the crown winner had received a Lifan motorbike and a cash prize. The contest was organized by Model Global Visas.

Foreign study scholarship is a new and controversial prize given to any beauty contest winner. Such a prize give some wrong impression to the youth in the country like:

  • Everybody should go to a foreign country for further study.
  • Higher education in Nepal is not good
  • A foreign study is very cheap (But, a scholarship of $700 won’t even pay a month’s rents in most of the western world)
