Bharat Sundari is a National Level Beauty Pageant, spread across India. All women are free to participate, regardless of their marital status which remains even more of a standout. It serves as a stage to the women of the house in overcoming the self-doubts, the stigma and the inner fears and revealing self-confidence on the ramp through the journey of Bharat Sundari.Along with the ‘National Crowning’, we’ve ventured a layout that does the ‘State Crowning’ as well, that not only glorifies the nation’s beauty as a whole but also bringing into limelight, the connoisseur of beauty representing its native state’s values. Our plan of action is purely dedicated to proliferating Indian youth to be inspired and inspire the rest. Via this pageant, we’d get the ‘Crowning Beauty of Nation’, representative of the rich Indian crux. Bharat Sundari was a national pageant in India that sent its winner to compete in Miss World pageant from 1968 to 1975.
