 November 19, 2017:  Bringing glory to the country, India’s Manushi Chhillar has won the Miss World beauty pageant for the year 2017 held at a resort in the coastal city of Sanya. 


The 20-year-old from Haryana, who is a medical student, edged out top five contestants from England, France, Kenya and Mexico at the event.
Andrea Meza, who is Miss Mexico, was the first runner up followed by Stephanie Hill from England was second runner up. Around 118 women from across the world participated in the beauty pageant.
In question and answer round post getting the top five spot, Chhilar was asked which profession according to her deserved the highest salary.
“I think a mother deserves the highest respect and when you talk about salary it’s not always about cash but I feel it’s the love and respect that you give to someone. My mother has always been the biggest inspiration in my life. All mothers sacrifice so much for their kids. So, I think it is the job of a mother that deserves the highest salary,” Chhillar said to a wide-applause.
It may be stated that the win came after a gap of 17 long years. The last Indian girl to win the title was Priyanka Chopra in the year 2000.
Chhillar is the sixth Indian woman to win the coveted title of Miss World. Reita Faria was the first Indian woman to claim the title back in 1966, followed by Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in 1994, Diana Haydon in 1997, Yukta Mookhey in 1999 and Chopra in 2000.
The winner of last year's title, Puerto Rico's Stephanie Del Valle passed on her crown to Chhillar.
