Susma Barman, a 23-year-old from a small village called Kanakpur situated in the Cachar district of Assam, became the first runner-up of the pageant show Mission Dream Miss India 2021.
“My journey was three days full of hectic and compact schedule, but at the same time, I’ve created fine and amazing experiences with everybody,” Susma Barman told EastMojo.
On December 19 and 21, the pageant took place in Lonavala’s Kumar resort, where there were introduction, talent round, swimsuit rounds among others.
The final grand finale round of the contest was held at the Aayush resort in Mumbai, in presence of Priya Priyambada: the creator and founder of Mission Dream Miss India, and Umang Mehta, a renowned Indian fashion designer as a chief guest.
Speaking on the costume that she wore, Susma said, “On the day of finale, I represented the beloved and bold princess of Kachari kingdom, Disru Haflongbar. She represents courage and determination for the people and a sense of direction for the culture, traditions and hope for the Dimasa community, to which I belong.”
“In 1496, Disru was born to a king who had many daughters and she was the last to be born. She was discarded and was ordered to be killed as an unwanted to already existing girl child in the kingdom,” she added.
“With the help of her mother, and with courage and determination, she exiled herself and helped her community as a true leader and princess, Disru is a voice for all the unwanted girl child, a voice of hope and leadership.”
Wanting to be a role model as a voice for all unwanted underprivileged girl children in our society, in the field of education and basic rights Susma urges all to be a voice with hope and determination for the upcoming generation.
