Q: Recently you have won Mother Teresa Memorial Award, How you feel?

Q: Why do you think you were picked for that award?

Q: What title you won and when?
Meenu: I won Mrs India Exquisite 2016, Queen for a cause on November 10, 2016. I became first woman from J&K, who won this prestigious beauty title.
Q: Being a Government Employee and a simple Jammu woman, How you suddenly joined beauty world?
Meenu: It is every woman’s dream to be a beauty queen, but I was exactly not like that. Though I was a princess for my father and queen for family, but there is different story behind my success. After completed my masters degree from Jammu itself, I got married and after giving birth to my son. I was healthy and beauty conscious, so remained very maintain. One day I was surfing net and saw entries for this title, then I searched it thoroughly and after lot of thinking and searching about the contest, finally I applied and registered myself. Then sent pictures and videos as desired by them. And then after passing from various sessions, I got the title.
Q: After you got Mrs India title, many Jammu women jumped into beauty contests and few won too. Do you think, you becomes a trend setter for many others?
Meenu: This is the hardcore fact that I was the first married woman, who won such a title, while being in Jammu. But I am really happy that I had set a landmark for many other women to follow. I am glad if I becomes trend setter for others, as before I got this title, many Jammu based women, who are beautiful and even confident for such contests not having much exposure, so they did not try even. Now, the trends are changing and many married women moving towards this from Jammu.
Q: After this title, now will you continue in the beauty world or just back to your routine job and life?
Meenu: I have so many offers in my hand from acting and beauty world. Even I considered some and thinking on how to move with. This is not the end and my journey has just begun.

Meenu: As SD Specialist is my profession, a beauty contest winner is my passion, while working for under privileged children gives me immense pleasure, so real Meenu is when I am with these children, because this is what I want to do from my heart.
