Inner beauty is more or just as important as outer beauty. Proof of this is Bhasha Mukherjee, the beauty queen who abandoned her crown to work as a doctor and fight the pandemic that the world is suffering.

In December 2019, Bhasha was chosen as Miss World representing the United Kingdom. However, after “enjoying” her reign for a few months, she decided to return to her native country and help the health system.

This baby girl is 3 months old. She was abandoned on the road side. Aren't we just greedy for the wrong things while others are fighting for a right to LIVE let alone quality of life. At a time like now, a tiny, microscopic non-intelligent life form has set the world on fire reminding us all how powerless we really are. Money, fame, power all bow to the crowned-virus. To the parents of this girl child, and the many others I met at this abandoned girls home, your daughter that you discarded is growing up healthy. Getting an education. Sees it. Acceptance. Your daughter who you, thinking you are beyond the wishes of the Supreme, wanted to end the life of, has been favored by the Supreme and granted another chance at life. To the parents and society that thought, such a heinous crime would go unpunished because a baby is powerless, they can't file a complaint at the police, or physically retaliate, Your daughter who you thought was worthless to the world, may grow up to become a doctor. What if that worthless tiny creature, gains the power to hold your old, feeble life in her hands? What then? What Corona has taught us, is a lesson nature has repeated time and time again. Power recycles. No creature, however powerful, has the reigns in their hands indefinitely. In fact, if nature is to be witness, then it's every time the most powerful of creatures that are destroyed first in every world catastrophe. Let's right our wrongs. If you sitting at home have ever exploited your power, and hurt someone, your house help even, it's not too late to say sorry.

Bhasha Mukherjee is a specialist in respiratory medicine. So she put her medical career on hold to participate in the pageant. The title required him to make several trips around the world to make humanitarian efforts.

“I was invited to Africa, Turkey, then India, Pakistan and various Asian countries to be an ambassador for various charity work,” she told CNN .

In March, the doctor visited India on behalf of the Coventry Mercia Lions Club charity. She lived in schools and homes for abandoned girls, where they donated stationery and money.

“When you do this humanitarian work abroad, everyone expects you to put on your crown, get ready, and look pretty. I wanted to go home and help. I wanted to go back and go directly to work. I have the feeling that I got this title for a reason and what better time to be part of this than now, ”he continued.

The return

According to the English newspaper, The Independent , the beauty queen left all her activities to return to her work at the National Health Service to fight the disease.
