Blue-eyed blonde Miss India New Zealand becomes inspiration for contestants

Wellington, Wed, 07 Sep 2011 ANI

Wellington, Sept 7 (ANI): The controversial crowning of a blonde, blue-eyed Miss India New Zealand last year has been a blessing in disguise for this year Miss India Wellington, according to the organisers.


The event, which is a celebration of Kiwi-Indian beauty, fashion, dance and music, will be held on Saturday, September 10.


Jacinta Lal, whose father is Indian-Fijian and mother is a New Zealander, was accused of not looking Indian enough when she was crowned Miss India Wellington last year, and later Miss India New Zealand.


But her success helped to inspire a diverse range of contestants to take part in this Saturday's Miss India Wellington, many of whom may not have entered otherwise, organiser Dharmesh Parikh said.


"It has made people realise that this is not just an Indian event but an event for the whole community - you don't have to be born in India to enter," Stuff.co.nz quoted him as saying.


The pageant is open to any New Zealand resident or citizen with Indian heritage.


Sri Lankan-born contestant Minra Jinnah, 22, said Miss Lal was "an inspiration" to all of this year's entrants."


"She's had a huge impact, the fact that she won and she's not your typical Indian girl," she stated. (ANI)
