The Essence of Being Sushmita Sen – Celebrating a Rare Honor to the Beauty

I remember this famous international forum about beauty pageants I used to visit for some years. I don’t go there anymore.  There was a guy there, who was from India but still he would bash Sushmita Sen very often, saying that she was not deserving of the crown and that Miss Universe 1994 must have been Carolina Gomez of Colombia.  Even Carolina, who was extremely gracious to Sushmita when the latter won Miss Universe, would not feel so strongly about this, unlike this guy, LOL.  But he did raise some good points.

Carolina(Colombia) looked a lot better, was fitter and more glamorous.  She also had a good personality. Of course, Sushmita answered the final question better.  But still, overall Carolina was a “better package” in the eyes of my friend from that forum.

So then, why Sushmita won?  This question is not really relevant after two decades of her winning the crown, but still I would like to express my love for her in the form of this analysis.

Sushmita, in my opinion, won because of her “fullness”.  She felt “full” – full of life when she presented herself.  This came across through her “presence”, through her “aura”, through her “geniune smile”, through her “happy mood”, through her “innocence”, through her “charm” & through the way she connected with people during the finals.

She epitomizes confidence, light and immense magnificence.  I guess that is what forms the “essence of Sushmita Sen” – the reason why she rocks.  It is the reason why she is loved by millions in spite of not being among the most successful bollywood stars.  This is why she won Miss Universe quite comfortably and was well received by most people who could feel her high self-esteem.

Sushmita Sen proves to the world by her life that you can dearly and genuinely accept and love yourself.  You can be yourself.  You can support yourself.  You can feel proud of yourself.  You can feel worthy and loved.  In this frenzy, it is not very easy to find people who are so much in love with themselves & life.

There are and can be no rounds to judge all these qualities.  Those “shallow” minds, which judge people just by looks to the extent of calling names to those who win honestly, will not be able to quantify these qualities.  And that is so because these qualities are to be “FELT” and not scored.  Sushmita Sen touches you as a person.

I remember the way that guy used to find all opportunities in the world to bash poor Sushmita.  I never responded to him.  But he did help me understand my/our love for this wonderful lady.  Thank you dumb dude! 😀

A rare honor - she is the only Bollywood actor to be featured in a coffee table book titled ‘The Indian Woman’ curated for the President of India’s gift for visiting international diplomats.

Today, when I read an article about Sushmita bringing a rare honor to Bollywood, I thought to pen this down.  Love you Sushmita Sen… 🙂

  1. To quote Lou Sierra MUO program director ” We (MUO) is looking for a spokesperson who happens to be beautiful”. That alone will show you that you might be the prettiest, but it will not be enough for Miss U. They always crown the smartest, and the Americans is a melting pot that beauty is a wide range. Sorry , Colombia has been a 1st runner-up way too many times.
