6. What has been your biggest disappointment in life? (Mister International 2014)
My greatest disappointment was my biggest pain too. I lost my elder brother who was not only my role model but also a reservoir of my inspiration. I experienced disappointment coz with all the efforts I couldn’t retain him. I lost him at a very intense period of my life and had to take on mammoth responsibilities of my family. It was him who taught me to be a fighter and never to give up attitude. Life moves on, and every disappointment or failure either makes you strong or teaches you something.
7. What do you think is the best thing in your country in the next decade? (Mister International 2017)
A decade from now , India’s integration with the global economy will be even higher with trade in goods and services. It will surpass the stage of slack in economy .My country, being historically strong and culturally diversified, will continue tapping on this uniqueness. Our urban endurance will continue and so will the uplifting of lives in the rural areas. Appx 80% of my countrymen will have access to internet and will be literate. I am very hopeful that our thinking for the future will include planning for outlier contingencies like chemical and nuclear warfare, lethal disease outbreaks, natural disasters, etc. I will say this with conviction that against all odds and challenges , my country has believed and worked Godspeed to move forward. India will be an example for all the growing countries.
8. Do you think being handsome will get you far in life? (Mister International 2017)
Me being handsome is a joint effort of me and my parents (smile ). 50% of how I was born and the rest the way I have groomed myself. By being handsome we undoubtedly become the centre of attraction however a chivalrous man is far greater attractive and appealing than just a good looking man. looks might fade away but our character and deeds remain forever. Hence a combination of good looks, personality and chivalry is my belief.
9. If you could change one of your physical characteristics, what would it be? (Miss Universe 2011)
I’m really happy and grateful with the way God has created me and I would not change any of my physical characteristics. I am a man who believes and values inner beauty. Rather than changing anything in me, I would accentuate all that I have – physically and internally.
10. What is the biggest problem the youth are facing today? (Miss World 1996)
I think “early maturity” can be amongst the biggest problem as due to the advent of satellite television and internet, kids are bombarded with unwanted information. I’m not saying that these are bad, am indicating that we need to use them wisely. I would also consider “inadequate employment opportunities” and “poverty” can be a serious problem too. Therefore we all should join hands together to eradicate these problems because the youth are the ones who will shape the future of the planet earth.
