Can't be miss India?? Insane!! X(

Since the time I was six-ish, I SO DESPERATELY wanted to be Miss Universe. I know one has to be Miss India first. But still! I had this HUGE collection of all the photos of Indian Beauty Queens that appeared in Newspapers, magazines, anywhere which my mum eventually made me throw away while clearing stuff in my room..I don't throw stuff you know..But that's besides the point! The main point is, Imagine my shock when I just discovered two minutes back that even to be a petty "mystique Miss NCR 2009", the eligibility criteria for sending in photos is that you should be 5"3 or taller!! THAT SUCKS!! Even though, I don't really want to be a beauty queen now..not that I can't be (:P)..Does this mean, short people are worthless..not worthy of representing India at an international platform?? Especially..since Indians are not Australians..we aren't very tall in general!! Tell you what, stupid beauty queen contests, it's just the other way round, the shorter ones are way smarter than the taller ones. I have no reason of saying that and it may make no sense to you at all..but It's MY BLOG!! And as a sign of protest, I'm not watching the crowning ceremony that'll be aired tonight for the first time since I was six-ish! Boo.

Indians aren't very tall? I don't think so

Tall is sexy you know. Who wants to see smurfs on a beauty contest?

And is this a blogging marathon your running? so many posts in so little time :)...but I love it!

I knowwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.....you have no idea how my mom reminds me every waking hour of my life that I'm not eligible to participate in Femina Miss India cos I'm not 5'6".:(

But yay! I can participate in that whatever-is-its-name beauty contest. :)

I'm sure there are other such contests jahan pe relaxation hogi height limit ki...you can participate there...and then both of us can die peaceful deaths. :)

Cheers

P.S. I liked that template...but I prefer a comment wala template to it anyday. :P

Anurag said...

Ohh I can comment now ...your previous template really sucked btw...that blue made me colour blind :D

well thr are some criterias u know and me feels they are necessary :P ...I mean how can you judge a person then ....Beauty(Height included) plus the brains right ....Height matters :P

Dream'R said...

sawan said...

hehehehe, talk about frustration :) no worries dear, its just tht the people who orgamize the show havnt seen ya, or else they wud have changed the rule by now. they cudn afford to avoid the most beautiful person in the country, what say? u have loads of fun dear. and as a sign of protest even i din watch the crowning ceremony!! high five! :P

Rahul Viswanath said...

U r already a winner being born as Woman of Substance .... So Chillax !!!

Arnab Majumdar said...

Stupid formalities these are, you certainly can't judge a person on the basis of a number over which they have almost no control. So, don't fret so much about not being selected... it was a stupid system anyway :)

First time on your blog, very interesting title that is... cheers, take care

Siya said...

@Twisted Elegance: Hehe..no blogomarathon..! :D

ApocalypsE said...

Come on!! who said short people are worthless...

For that alone i ll award you miss blogville, screw miss india...

Now you have something to smile about...:)

Dhanya said...

Being a shorty, I couldn't agree with you more. But I guess being tall is synonymous to being sexy worldwide. So what if she kinda looks like a skinny rat with no brains... she still gets to compete in such shows :P Hmmmph. We should host our own show 'Miss Shorty India' or something :D

Siya said...

@Apocalypse: Oh WOW!! Haha..thanks! :)

@Dhanya: Totally man, totally! We're doing it!! All of the contestants this year looked like Kareena in Tashan!! :P

nahiiii short people aren't worthless....5'6 is the average of Indian women..i read somewhere....

Dr. Acula said...

Arreee..you should have totally gone for modelling!! Then there would have been atleast a very thin chance of meeting Ranbir Kapoor naa!!
Ohh..yeah you told me about your height already!! jealous!! :-S

Ohh..thank you, thank you!! Honoured!! Heh He.. :)
