Dr. Tara Shweta Arya: It was not easy to prepare as I wanted to give my best at both the pageants I entered. I followed a very strict regime and a much planned diet. I also worked on my walk and presentation skills. Thankfully, I have so many supportive people in my life, that even the most difficult phases in my life seemed so easy. It at times did become very hectic to manage my professional life, my family and preparations for the pageants however, my kids who are the reason I won this crown always motivated me and it’s because of them that my life changed overnight.

Q5. You are a doctor, a social activist, a professor, a mother and now a national beauty queen. How do you manage to play so many different roles in your life so well?
Dr. Tara Shweta Arya: I believe life is not just meant to be lived, it should also be celebrated. I enjoy every moment of my life and try to live the way it is rather than complaining about the things might have been there however they are not there. As when you start complaining, you tend to lose the happiness that has come to you from the things you already have in your life. It is better to appreciate the things that you have in your life as life does not remain the same, things change, who knows what you have today, you might not have it tomorrow. So, live every moment of your life to the fullest. That is what I do.
Q6. What paved your way to this fascinating world of beauty pageants?
Dr. Tara Shweta Arya: My son, who is 14 years old, motivated me to join Mrs Bihar beauty pageant. He read somewhere that the auditions for Mrs Bihar 2019 contest were going to happen in our region. It was then he came up to me and mentioned, I should participate in the pageant. Both my kids have always mentioned that “mom you look so pretty”. Of course for every child his / her mother is beautiful and my kids were the same. Even, my daughter who is 8, she says, “Mamma you are so beautiful.” Their friends and teachers also said to them many times that your mother is very beautiful when I used to visit their school for parents-teacher meetings. They used to tell me all about it when they talked to me about how their day was at school. All these things paved my way to Mrs. Bihar pageant and after winning Mrs. Bihar beauty pageant, I got direct entry to Rubaru Mrs. India 2019 pageant.

Q7. What was the most challenging part of entering Rubaru Mrs India beauty pageant?
Dr. Tara Shweta Arya: The most challenging part was that we had to walk wearing 5 – 6 inches high heels. Being a doctor, I have hardly worn any heels or stilettos in my life. I always prefer to wear flat footwear however it was one of the prerequisites of the pageant to walk in stilettos, even though I am 5 ft 9 inches tall yet, I wore 6 inches high stilettos as this is how things work in the pageant industry. Along with being well-spoken you have to look presentable all the time. Initially, I faced some issues while walking in those 6 inches high heels however eventually I became used it and now I can almost sprint in them.
Q8. Who has been your biggest support in life?
Dr. Tara Shweta Arya: My husband. He is my biggest support and my greatest strength.
Q9. Who is your inspiration or role model?
Dr. Tara Shweta Arya: Sushmita Sen. She is the quintessential 21st century woman who perfect in every way.
Q10. Lastly, any message for your supporters and well-wishers.
