Twenty-year-old Sheryl Kumar was tonight crowned the 2012 Miss India Fiji at TappooCity in Suva.

The soft spoken Valelevu beauty who was sponsored by Shear Bronzer toppled the nine other finalists to book her place in the Miss India World Pageant which will take place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia next year.

Speaking to FijiLive after the crowning, an emotional Kumar said she did not expect to win the title and was just content to be chosen in the top five.

"I really did not expect to win tonight and now that I have won, it really feels great and I am on top of the world," said the second year Accounting and Finance student of the University of the South Pacific.

"When my name was announced in the top 5 I felt real honoured because I had come that far but when my name was called out as the winner, the feeling was just incredible and I was completely surprised."

"It is a huge responsibility now to represent Fiji on the world stage and I would give my best to promote my country to the rest of the world."

"I would like to dedicate this win to everyone who has supported me in one way or the other and people who have raised me and given me hope and confidence whenever I was down."

Kumar also walked away with the Beautiful Skin title while Rampur College Form 6 student Prasanna Kumar was named Miss Facebook and also won the People's Choice title.

The Uprising Resort sponsored queen also finished in the top 5.

Miss Vinod Patel, Menuka Sharma who finished second runner-up also won the Photogenic award while Miss Amols Production, Alvin Lata was chosen as Miss Personalty.

Miss Nativa Motors, Natasha Begum finished as the first runner-up.

The Zar Logistics sponsored pageant had drawn a huge interest this year with the top ten finalists going through immense training for four weeks before the grand finale.
