Miss Himachal takes up a cause


By: Priyanka

Shimla: A beauty queen taking up a social cause is considered a commitment that comes along with the crown, or maybe a justification for the beauty-with-brains slogan. The first Miss Himachal, Purva Rana, appears to be going a bit further, supporting a political cause, and that too not really Indian. Recently she was spotted promoting the Tibetan freedom movement, participating in a signature campaign run by another brave Indian doctor, who is using his own blood to convey the message.

Of course, Purva had a valid reason to be there. ”I am from Dharamsala and can see how Tibetan people feel shattered by what the Chinese have done. I wanted to help them and that’s why I am here.” She sure was a great support for the cause. Dr Yadav, who has been campaigning for the Tibet cause for almost 14 years, now has used blood more than often to highlight the issues. Now, will Purva go that far? Well, let’s hope she does, but before that there’s another world waiting to be conquered by her!

  1. sir/madam first of all i would like to congrats to all the contestant. and organizer of the contest miss himachal pradesh. But there is issue for discussion of for mis himachal pradesh. As i read daily news paper divya himachal pradesh and it is almost clear that there is no relation of himachal in this contest.  No cat walk in himachali dress no himachli culture..i think no quiz contest relatedto himachal. then how we can say that it is miss himachal contest, as for my concern etc miss punjabi contest is far better than miss himachal  coz in that we can see the iage of punjab. so I therefore i advice to people related to this contest please change the  way of miss himachal contest or change the name of the title..sorry but it is true why we call it miss himachal if there is no relation of it to the hiachal…thanks    anuj verma mob.no 9817343512
