Age and marital status don’t define one’s beauty and talent, as Mamta Trivedi proved in front of billions in China. After winning the Mrs India title earlier this year, she participated in the recently held Mrs Asia International World beauty pageant and went on to win the crown there as well.

A social worker and yoga enthusiast, the 47-year-old mother of two grown up children was always inclined towards modelling. However, she couldn’t pursue her passion due to marriage and other domestic responsibilities.

 

“When I was in school and college, I was interested in this field but due to domestic responsibilities, I couldn’t continue. Now that my children are all grown up and very supportive, I took the plunge. Social work has always been my passion and after winning the Mrs India title, I took the opportunity to use my crown to benefit others. I tied up with Roshni Trust and travelled across villages to help people fight depression,” says Mamta, adding, “I even tried to raise awareness at the beauty pageant by doing a monologue of a 16-year-old girl who is suffering from depression for my talent round.”

Sharing her experience about the pageant, Mamta says, “The pre-judging competition was for five days, and very important. The other rounds — national costume, talent round, evening gown and the question and answer round — were held on the main pageant day. Although I was very nervous before going to the competition, the whole experience gave me a new lease of life and I made lots of friends.”

 

Mamta also shares, “On stage, the Chinese contestant named me when asked who she thought could be crowned apart from her. I can’t express how proud and happy I felt — it is one of my biggest achievements.” Post her win, Mamta is now focusing on how to reach out to more people to raise awareness about depression.
