Beauty pageants celebrate women: Miss Diva Universe 2019

Published

on

Mumbai, Sep 28 : Vartika Singh, a 28-year-old beauty queen from Lucknow, is all set to represent India at the prestigious Miss Universe 2019. She bagged the coveted crown of Miss Diva Universe 2019 this week, and is overwhelmed with the love she’s getting.

“If you look at Miss Universe candidates in the past, they are somebody who can speak their mind, lead the path, be a unique personality on their own and have a strong vision,” Vartika told IANS in an exclusive interview.

As she eyes the international crown, what’s next for her is working on fitness – physical and mental, along with keeping her skin and diet in check.

Asked what she felt about the criticism beauty pageants garner for promoting a certain body type and beauty standards, Vartika upholds the events as ‘celebrations of being a woman’.

“I feel like a beauty pageant is a celebration of being a woman, being nurturing, caring, confident, opinionated, and someone who can be a leader. Pageants have also change their parameters over time — they’ve included transgender people, and some beauty queens haven’t been the tallest or fittest.”

Is she nervous to represent India at the world stage?

“A lot of people are supporting me, that’s a good thing, but the more people think you are capable of bringing the crown back, the sense of responsibility increases. It creates a tiny bit of pressure, but I work better under pressure,” Vartika, who has also come up with a healthcare NGO Pure Humans, said.

She has participated in Miss Diva 2014, and Femina Miss India 2015 and also represented India at Miss Grand International 2015, where she emerged as the second runner-up.

All set to become an icon in the glamour and fashion industry, Vartika says she will keep modelling and is not averse to acting in films, “if that happens”.

The Miss Diva and Mr. India pageants, held in Mumbai on Thursday, also named Shefali Sood as Miss Diva Supranational 2019 and Varun Verma as Mr. India Supranational 2019.

Young adults become quite rational while making sexual choices

Nearly all participants in the study made consistently rational choices, as defined by established models of psychological behaviour.

New York, Oct 17 : Contrary to how they are sometimes portrayed in the media, young adults tend to make highly rational decisions when it comes to selecting potential romantic partners.

Young adults appear to consider both the risks and benefits of their sexual behaviour in a highly consistent and thoughtful manner, said the study published in the journal Psychological Science.

“There is a tendency to view sexual decision making in young adults as a highly variable and somewhat random process, more influenced by hormones or impulsivity than rational processes,” said lead author of the study Laura Hatz, a doctoral candidate at the University of Missouri in the US.

“Our study suggests, however, that young adults are highly consistent in their choices, balancing potential partners’ level of attractiveness against the potential risk for sexually transmitted infection.”

The research involved presenting 257 participants with hypothetical “sexual gambles” in which a photo of a potential partner’s face was shown alongside an associated, though purely hypothetical, risk of contracting a sexually transmitted infection.

Nearly all participants in the study made consistently rational choices, as defined by established models of psychological behaviour.

Prior research has shown that, in general, individuals tend to use what are known as heuristic decision strategies — cognitive shortcuts that may ignore some information — to make choices in life.

Hatz and her colleagues found that even individuals who could be identified as classic heuristic decision makers for monetary-based choices became rational decision makers when similar choices were framed as sexual choices.
