Seventeen hopefuls remain in the Miss India Fiji pageant as the elimination round got underway in Suva today.

After today's semifinals, only 10 contestants will progress to the final from which Fiji's representative to the Miss India Worldwide Pageant in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia early next year will be selected.

Snehal Morris who is one of the judges at the pageant told FijiLive they are looking for someone who has the whole package.

“This special girl we are looking for should have the beauty, brains, be able to speak properly and she must have talent,” said Morris.

“One of the main things we emphasis on to the girls is their talent and they should be able to showcase their talent perfectly and to be perfect also in their representation,” she said.

“We are impressed with the way the girls have presented to us and they have really given us a surprise with what they have showcased,” she said.

Morris has also called on other girls who would want to take part in this kind of pageants to come forward and not be afraid.

Meanwhile, Arishma Devi who is one of the contestants said the pageant made her come out of her shell as she was always shy.

Devi who is a cadet journalist said even though there are many challenges ahead of them she was happy that she had made some new friends.

“The experience is just great and I have a very good support coming from home,” said Devi.

Over 30 countries will take part in the world stage event next year.
