Bihar girl representing India in Miss Universe contest


Patna,(BiharTimes): Bihar-born Shilpa Singh, 23, a software engineer by profession, will be representing India at the Miss Universe contest in Las Vegas, the United States, on December 19.

Shilpa, who was born in Diha village at Singhia in Samastipur district, is a model by passion.

She had studied in Muzaffarpur, Ranchi and Jamshedpur and is currently working with Infosys. Right now, the first challenge is to ensure a place in the last 16.

Incidentally, she has been groomed by none else but former Miss Universe Sushmita Sen, who is giving invaluable tips to her.

Her father Suresh Singh, mother Rita Singh and elder brother Salabh Singh are keeping their fingers crossed.

Shilpa was originally crowned first runner-up at the ‘I am she - Miss Universe 2012’. When the winner Urvashi Rautela was dethroned due to controversy over her age, Shilpa got the crown.

Last time it was in the year 2000 that Lara Dutta won the Miss Universe crown for India. Sushmita Sen was first to win the crown in 1994.

Manpreet Brar ended up the first runner-up in 1995 Miss Universe contest, while Madhu Sapre was adjudged second runner-up in 1992. Celina Jaitley too missed the Miss Universe crown when she was declared fourth in 2001. Prior to them, Yasmin Daji was third runner-up way back in 1966.
