The Unstoppable ALANKRITA SAHAI
TMM|November 2021
Alankrita Sahai, Miss India Earth 2014 is a woman of substance who believes in living life to its fullest. She is the first Indian to win 7 titles at the Miss Earth pageant held in the Philippines and is also an inspiration to many, those who wish to live their passion and dream as their profession. Alankrita has always walked the unconventional paths of life and that is what defines her courage and mantra for success too. In a free-wheeling chat with TMM, she talks about her journey and her most recent brainchild Chandigarh Horse Show.

Tell us a bit about yourself.

I am an artist and an interior consultant. I come from a family where personal growth and evolution have always been emphasized along with developing your own individual personality while inculcating your values and adapting to your changing environment. I am like water, freeflowing and shapeshifting! I love my work and I’m proud to be the first Indian to win 7 titles for my nation. My family is my backbone and I love what I do. Also, I’m starting my own studio which will help women and men transform themselves and their lives.

You have been associated with the beauty industry for so long. How has the industry changed over the years?

Yes, it has changed over the years. I guess social media has been the game-changer. Now, beauty standards have changed and people have become more realistic. Awareness amongst the generation of what beauty truly is without filters and Photoshop is taking place every day. Yet, of course, there are brands and people who are stuck in the rigmarole of fair, dark tall, short, fat, thin which is unacceptable. There are all sorts of standards set by actors, bloggers, influencers, and many others. But I believe that we still have a long way to go. And things are changing. Standards are set by us; hence we need to be the change we want to see.

How and when did the idea of the Chandigarh Horse Show happen?
