I was always active in cultural activities, now I’m going to share some pictures from my fancy dress competitions that used to happen every year. Mom used to choose a theme and dress me up, and guess what? I used to win the first prize every year !! I loved participating in all the competitions possible and I made sure my presence was felt, swag u see 😉 haha !! Check out few of my avatars below.
Thats me as “Shakuntale”, Mom made all the accessories using jasmine flowers, check me out in detail (only in this pic ah!!), including my sticker (bindi). I had won the first prize 🙂
When mom decked me up as Krishna for a fancy dress competition in school and of course I won a prize 😀
This was definitely not for any competition , during summer holidays my mom and aunt had spent few hours to get this look on me! it was very tiring ! , of course that flower braid weighed more than me !! But I remember walking around the house just like that until evening 😀
Receiving a prize for a competition I won 🙂 See how scared I look, actually performing is easier than receiving awards ! That applies to me even today ! ha ha.
I should thank my parents especially my mom for understanding my interests and encouraging me to learn and participate in various activities. That laid a strong foundation and today I’m confident enough to step on any stage. Though I never planned on becoming a heroine, here I am and looks like my childhood was a preparation for this journey.
Though I was a gifted steel plate, box or a glass plate (in fact I won so many that I could have opened a small size steel shop 🤣). The prizes I won in childhood were Oscars to me !! HAHA !! I also used to win many prizes in competitions like dancing, singing, drawing, crafts, and Badminton. I will tell you in detail about these some other day. Let me know what was your Oscar in childhood.
