  1. I know my comment has nothing to do with issue, however I would like to gather support of every INDIAN to bring down the web site Amazon down. It is selling foot ware with the picture of “THE GREATEST APOSTLE OF PEACE – SHRI MAHATMA GANDHI JI”.
    I humbly request you to help me in this cause, as I have sent several emails to AMAZON without any response and called them without any response.

  2. Interesting…she finished graduation by age 16 and participated in Miss Universe at that age, which is against the pageant’s rule–contestants must be at least 18 years of age. I am sure her DOB is not correct. She has to be born before much before the DOB you have mentioned here.

  3. Can you select a Miss India or World from Black community or dark competition girl. The world goes like Beauty pageant means light skins. India is native to more than billion brown skin people. We have represent at least once in few years select a dark complexion human and be humane.
