Our people need to know that pageants are not just about beautiful faces but skin deep. It's about empowering women, giving them a platform for what they are best at."
Yojna Pradhan, the fitness trainer for the show, feels that Miss Kalimpong is not just about good clothes, catwalks, and makeovers. "It is more about creating a motivational and inspirational figure in our town," she said.
