Experts of Interview :

Hello Mumbai News : Tell us something about yourself.

Pinkky Rajgarhiya : “Once you make a decision, The Universe conspires to bring it to fruition.”

Mrs India 2016, Mrs India Fitness 2016, Mrs Most Popular Mrs India 2016, Mrs Asia 2017, and Mrs Universe Business Lady 2017. My name is Pinkky Rajgarhiya. I am the Founder of Chingari Shakti Foundation and a TEDx Speaker. I am a Child Psychologist by profession. Chingari Shakti Foundation is a nationally recognised non-governmental organization that promotes women’s empowerment, health care, and education. The Ministry of Nepal just named me as the Tourism Ambassador for Province No. 1. People may be surprised to learn that I’ve been spiritually inclined since I was a child and that I spend the majority of my time affirming my faith into reality.

“You can have anything you want.”

My life began when I was 40 years old. So it’s never too late to begin. All of you can begin working on your dreams RIGHT NOW. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you are, or how difficult things are. Simply put your heart and soul into it, and the universe will take care of the rest!

Hello Mumbai News : What do you do and how long have you been in Mumbai?

Pinkky Rajgarhiya :  Since I got married, I’ve resided in Mumbai for the past 23 years. I work as a child psychologist and undertake my social work through my foundation, Chingari Shakti Foundation.

I’m also a brand ambassador for various organizations, including Acid Survivors Sahaas Foundation, VDIS for Differently Abled Children, and the Asian Ambassador for the Sports Council of India.

Hello Mumbai News :  How did you get into Social Field?

Pinkky Rajgarhiya :  My mum was the one who encouraged me to become involved in social activity. Since I was a child, I’ve seen my mother work for her community. She is the founder of over ten non-governmental organizations in Nepal and is well-known in the country for her humanitarian efforts.

She’s always been a source of motivation for me to strive for greater success and to constantly give back to the community in which we reside. Nonetheless, I’ll be eternally grateful to her for pointing me in this direction, because there’s nothing more rewarding than making someone else happy.

Hello Mumbai News :  How did you get into Glamour world?

Pinkky Rajgarhiya :  I used to fantasize of walking down the catwalk while wearing crowns made of rhinestones, jewels, and sapphires. My life changed as I grew older, and I had different goals and obligations. I took up the lovely job of being a stay-at-home mom and spent the majority of my time at home. I had no idea that at the age of 40, my life was going to change and that I would once again be able to dream.

My daughters have always been supportive of my ambitions and have assisted me in realizing them. It all started when my elder daughter discreetly filled out Mrs India’s form in 2016 and I saw my photos on Mrs India’s portal- That’s how my life changed.

Hello Mumbai News :  As we read your profile you’re honored with so many awards and titles like Mrs. Asia Universe, how was your experience?

Pinkky Rajgarhiya :  I learned a lot about myself that I wouldn’t have known otherwise because of this journey. I had no idea I was capable of competing for Mrs Asia or Mrs Universe, let alone winning. This experience taught me to appreciate myself more and to see myself for who I really am.

But it isn’t always all glitz and shine. What we see on the ramp is vastly different from what occurs behind it. You meet and compete with folks from all over the world. Each would want to bring you down, and the only thing that keeps you going is your commitment to your people and the crown. It’s essential to exercise your mind while training your body; it’s essential to recognise your worth whenever you doubt yourself; and it’s essential to understand why you picked what you did.

Hello Mumbai News :  You have been associated with so many NGO’s so what would you like to call yourself a Social Entrepreneur?

Pinkky Rajgarhiya :  I’m less concerned with the title and more concerned with the work. I’ve only ever joined NGOs that I believe in and trust since the beginning. Their mission and vision are very close to my heart and I will always support their cause. I’m truly humbled to be their ambassador, volunteer, owner or social entrepreneur whatever you want to call it.

At the end of the day, only the work matters and the changes they bring to our society does.

Hello Mumbai News :  What is your message to all Women on International Women’s Day?

Pinkky Rajgarhiya :  “It’s not a women’s day, It’s a woman’s life.” Wishing every single woman around me a very happy International Women’s Day! Shine not just today, but every other day.

Behind every successful woman, is herself & a tribe of other successful women who have her back! I support each one of you as you all support me and together, we will definitely achieve all our dreams!

My message to all of you is that- Marriage is not an end. Having children is not an end. It’s just the beginning of maturing into a beautiful woman who knows what she wants and how to get it. You must step out of your comfort zone and work hard to fulfill your own dream. With the right amount of effort and hardwork, no one can ever stop you from becoming the person you really want to become!

Hello Mumbai News : What is your vision on Women Empowerment?

Pinkky Rajgarhiya :  “Equality and standing for Equality is the actual essence of women’s empowerment.”

Women empowerment, in my opinion, entails empowering women to take charge of their own life. The greatest approach to do so is to educate them and help women become financially self-sufficient, just as you would with men. It essentially entails allowing and accepting women to develop and justify themselves in all aspects of life.

Hello Mumbai News :  What is your opinion/view on should there be a Government holiday on International Women’s Day?

Pinkky Rajgarhiya :  Can there be a single day to celebrate women? Can there be a single day to thank our mothers, daughters, wives and sisters for all they’ve done in making our Bharat Mata great? The answer is No. Should you, however, have a public holiday on the day we honor International Women’s Day? Yes.

Because it isn’t only about equal acknowledgment for women; it is also about having and claiming equal rights and standing in society. The government’s declaration of International Women’s Day as a national holiday recognises the importance of women in state construction and national development, which is much needed.
