    City-based social entrepreneur wins Mrs India Universe International title in Udaipur


    For Rumana Sinha Sehgal winning Mrs India Universe International 2017 title was a cherry on top. The pageant held last week at Uadipur was a pit stop in her journey that began in the corporate world as an industrial engineer and culminated in a social entrepreneurship venture. The Mrs India Universe title comes a few months after Rumana was conferred with ‘Iconic woman’ award at the Women Economic Forum, New Delhi.

    “It is serendipitous,” laughs Rumana, reacting to her winning the title. She’s the founder and managing director of Serendipity, a utility art installation centre that uses recycled articles. A casual browsing on Facebook led her to apply and get selected, which eventually got her the title.

    Organised by Viscera Events and Archana Tomer Creations, the event saw as many as 42 contestants participating in two categories — Gold, who are in the age group of 25 to 35 and Platinum for the 35 to 50 age group. At 41, Rumana taking part in the Platinum category came out with flying colours. The proverbial ‘beauty with brains’ applies to me, says an unpretentious Rumana whose response to the question, ‘the one thing that she would want to change about her past’, won her the crown. Her reply, ‘that she would wish to be born as her mother and embody all her virtues to pass it on her children’, warmed audience’ and judges’ hearts.

    Enjoying the support of her family and friends, this mother of two is confident that winning this title will give her visibility and open doors to carry forward her ventures in sustainable development goals.
