20-year-old Manushi Chhillar has made India proud and won the coveted Miss World 2017 title, 17 years since Priyanka Chopra became the last Indian to be crowned in 2000. As many as 108 beauty queens from different parts of the world participated in the prestigious pageant. 

Apart from the Miss World title, Manushi, the young medicine student from Haryana, also won the 'Beauty with Purpose' award. Chhillar began to use her position of fame during the course of the beauty pageant itself. For her 'Beauty with a Purpose' project for Miss World 2017, she decided to spread awareness about menstrual hygiene through her initiative 'Project Shakti'.

In the question and answer round, Manushi was asked: “Which profession deserves the highest salary and why? To this Manushi replied, "I think a mother is of the highest respect. I don’t think it’s just about cash but love and respect she gives to someone. She is the biggest inspiration in my life. A mother should get the highest respect."

Congratulations Manushi, you have made us proud!

As Manushi gets ready to embark on a new journey, her father, Mitrabasu Chhillar, who is an endocrinologist at the Institute of Nuclear Medicine and Allied Sciences (INMAS), Delhi, and mother, Dr Neelam Chhillar, a doctor at the Institute of Human Behavior and Allied Sciences (IHBAS), Delhi, are equally proud and excited.
