Manushi Chhillar was born to doctor parents on 14th May 1997 in Rohtak, Haryana. All of 21 years, she was studying medicine before deciding to participate in Femina Miss India, 2017. And what a journey it has been for her! Not only did she go on to win the Miss India crown, she brought back the prestigious title of Miss World. Her heartwarming response to the final question- Which profession deserves the highest salary and why, broke India’s 17-year long dry spell at the international beauty pageant.
Q:Which Profession deserves the highest salary and why?
Ans: Since am close to my mother i think a mother deserves the highest respect and when you talk about salary I don’t think it’s about cash but I feel it’s the love and respect that you give to someone and I think my mom has always been the biggest inspiration in my life and all mothers they just sacrifies so much for their kids so the profession which deserves the highest salary the highest respect and love I should be a mother.
