Miss Russia 2007, Ksenia Sukhinova, returned home from Johannesburg with the Miss World crown and Miss India, Parvathy Omankuttan, managed to grab the runner-up position in the Miss World finals held on December 13, 2008.
I am not talking about the Russian beauty or the Indian beauty who, we might be seeing a lot in Hindi movies in coming days. It is about the Miss Nepal 2008 who was not chosen in the first place. I would have been happy to write about a Nepali model whether placed last among the 108 contestants or somewhere in the middle. After lengthy preparation of the Miss Nepal 2008, the government decided that the event was worthless and it would serve no purpose to the betterment of the society.
Who knows one of these Nepali beauties might have been Miss World … well that may be a day-dream. But it is true that the experience to participate in one of the prestigious events in world would have brought home some knowledge. A few foreigners would have realized that a country called Nepal exists in reality. I hope the Maoist government would work on some common sense in coming days.
