The search has begun for a young woman to represent Fiji at the Miss India Worldwide Pageant in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia early next year.

For the third time in Fiji, the Miss India Fiji Pageant, an affiliate to the world’s only cultural pageant is scheduled to be held on September 15, 2012 in Suva.

Pageant Director, Aliyah Jan in a statement said the goal of the pageant is to promote the Fijian culture and celebrate the Indian Diasporas around the world

The contestants eligible to enter should be of Indian origin, between the ages of 17 and 27, never married, and are citizens, residents, or born in Fiji or at least have 1 parent of Indian decent.
 
“The Miss India Fiji Pageant is intended to provide entertainment and enlightenment about Fijian and Indian arts and culture to the audience, benefits, and opportunities for the contestants; and an annual worldwide event for the participation of the Fijian Community.”

“The Miss India Worldwide Pageant is produced by the IFC and is known as ‘the glamorous Indian function in the world’. We encourage talented young women to apply to be part of this pageant because it is a unique opportunity to represent ourselves in an international stage,” she said.

Jan encourages all eligible young ladies to apply because it creates a new dimension to your life outside the usual beauty and glamour associated with pageants and allows you to work for a cause and use the pageant as a platform to reach out.
 
Auditions have been scheduled for the west and central division including Nadi, Sigatoka, Nausori and Suva later this month.
 
Over 30 countries are expected to be part of the event in March next year.

Trainee doctor Nafiza Nisha is reigning Miss India Fiji. She represented Fiji in the world stage event in Dubai last year.
