No matter how big a dream it may seem for many but for Komal Kalra Pagrani, an Indorean, the opportunity to represent India in Mrs World Competition is a dream shaped by immense hard work.
Selected by beating around a 1,000 entries for the competition, Komal says, "My belief in the thought that dreams do come true has been strengthened. I always thought that I would be able to make it, if I put in the right kind of effort. With due support from family and friends, it is an overpowering feeling to realise that I have been selected."
To be held in Solomon Island, Maryland in the US, Komal would be competing against 45 contestants from different countries. "The competition is scheduled for November; it is going to be a good learning experience for me. The biggest thrill remains that I would be representing my country at a competition which is considered as the highest competition in its own level. It feels amazing to know that the hard work has finally paid off," said Komal.
Married for five years, Komal narrates that the happiness she experiences has got more to do with the fulfilment of the dream she cherished. "I always wanted to pursue modelling. I got offers for two-three assignments as well. But, I was unable to do them as I got married within that time. It was only after marriage that I got this golden opportunity to go ahead with things."
Winner of Mrs Asia Pacific and Mrs India International-2014, Komal is confident that this time also she will bring home the crown.
