After hoarding in top 5 contestants, during the question and answer round, Manushi was asked, “Which profession deserves the highest salary and why?” And to this, she replied very confidently, “Since I am very close to my mother I think a mother deserves the highest respect and when you talk about salary I don’t think it’s just about cash, but I feel it’s the love and respect you give to someone. And I think my mom has always been the biggest inspiration in my life and all mothers they just sacrifice so much for their kids. So, the profession which deserves the highest salary, the highest respect and love should be a mother.”
Very well said Manushi, indeed the job of a mother is no easy task. Mothers are always an inspiration to their kids. They are the ones who give them the strength and encourage them to fulfill their dreams. A mother’s love is unconditional. Manushi is not just beautiful, but she is smart and intelligent too. She has gracefully carried her Indian values and principles outside her country and made India a very proud nation.
