Sushmita Sen Uploaded A Heartfelt Video To Celebrate 26 Years Of Winning The Miss Universe Title. She’s So Unconventional, We Love It
They say that looks may fade but beauty never does. Keeping all the ridiculous beauty standards that we hold ourselves to aside, I really believe that to be true. Women are always made to believe that looks and beauty are the same things, but they aren’t. If you let them, society will have you believe that you have to be tall, skinny and fair to be considered beautiful. Don’t me wrong, you can be, but you don’t have to be.
As you all might know, on this date 26 years ago, Sushmita Sen won India its Miss Universe title. She is a beauty in every way possible and the fact that she has refused to conform to society and its standards makes her all the more amazing.
To commemorate this epic win Sushmita uploaded a heartfelt video on Instagram and YouTube and thanked her family and friends for all their support and for giving her the strength to be herself throughout this journey. The video is a montage of her pictures right from childhood to the day she won the Miss Universe pageant. It also has various pictures of her daughters, family and friends.

The video on both the platforms was accompanied by a heartwarming about how all the people featured in it has made Sushmita’s universe a little better. The caption on her Instagram post read, “#26thanniversary #missuniverse1994 #indiasfirst Thank you all for making ‘my Universe a better place’…your love has always been my greatest strength!!!I love you guys!!!

I have always looked up to Sushmita because she has never let anyone else’s opinion intimidate her. She adopted her eldest daughter Renee in 2000 when she was merely 24, back then it was practically an unheard thing to do but she stood by her decision and claimed it was the wisest thing she ever did. Ten years later in 2010, she adopted her younger daughter Alisah.
Also, unlike all the other actresses of her time, Sushmita has also always been open about her relationships. Her latest boyfriend Rohman Shawl is even staying with her and her daughters during this lockdown. In fact, earlier in the day he posted a picture of Sushmita and wrote “26 years My Jaaan How proud you made all of Us & still continue to do so!”
I really love how unconventional she is and even though she might not be the reigning Miss Universe, she sure will go down in history as one of the most interesting ones. The one who didn’t conform. The one who didn’t play it by the book and for that, we love her.
