In the Netherlands as well as other countries, there are different Miss Beauty Contests organized. The most popular contests are Miss Universe, Miss Earth, and Miss World. The beauty contests that we know today began at the beginning of the twentieth century. Since September of last year I have been Miss Poland Benelux and in addition to my duties as a Miss I have also been invited to other Miss competitions that take place in the Netherlands.
The Miss India Holland Competition is a yearly event that has taken place since 2003. One of the goals of this competition is to showcase and present young Hindu women. This Miss competition of course has to do with beauty, but that is only one part of it. The opportunity for the women is to learn, and to gain a stepping stone in the beginning of their career, and the presentation of the Hindu/Indian culture is just as important. This event took place in the Villa Thalia in Rotterdam.
The winner of this night was Shaïsta Thakoersingh.
