The 2012 Miss India Fiji pageant got underway in Suva today with the ten finalists going through catwalk and public speaking training at TappooCity.

The final of the Miss India Fiji, an affiliate of the world’s only cultural pageant will take place this Saturday and the winner will represent Fiji during the Miss India Worldwide Pageant, which is celebrating its 22nd year in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia early March next year.

In the lead up to the finals, the girls are undergoing a number of training and grooming sessions including public outings.

Fiji Fashion Week director Ellen Whippy today took the girls through the ramp walk and public speaking training.

 Pageant Director, Aliyah Jan says the pageant is not only to promote the Fijian culture and celebrate the Indian Diasporas around the world but it is also to help develop the participants through training. 

“The guest lecture by Fiji Fashion Week is to help the girls in their preparation in terms of public speaking, posture, catwalk and etiquette," she said.

The pageant consists of four segments, the introduction, Indian tradition, talent and a question & answer session.

 The Miss India Fiji Pageant is intended to provide entertainment and enlightenment about Fijian and Indian arts and culture to the audience.

Over 30 countries are expected to be part of the Miss India Worldwide finals in Malaysia.
