HISTORY

A woman is nature's greatest and most incredible creation. Her beauty is a swirl of sensations and every encounter with her is a true moment of magic. There is not a single creature in the entire world that has not been carried away by her charms. Women too in this fast developing civilization have been striving to be better than the rest in terms of beauty and brains since times immemorial. This therefore is the main encouraging factor for the existence of various types of Beauty Pageants throughout the world Miss WORLD PANJABAN® is a unique Beauty Pageant based on Punjabi tradition, folklore and culture. The idea behind making of such an exclusive event was first conceived by Mr. Jasmer Singh Dhatt, a veteran of Punjabi Culture. He is thefounder of the cultural organization Sabhyacharak Sathh Panjab (Regd.) which organizes this exclusive Mega Pageant.

Miss WORLD PANJABAN® is a Beauty Pageant with a difference, as it does not display beauty of women in absolute vulgarity. The promoter of this unique Pageant believes that beauty of a woman is divine & thus she should not be made to walk shamelessly on the ramp with scantly clad revealing attire. Instead her beauty which includes her lovely thoughts, her cultural values and virtues along with the sharpness of her mind should be brought to the fore in the most admiring manner and it is the duty of every concerned Punjabi wherever he is residing in this world to do so. Miss WORLD PANJABAN® is thus a unique contest, which covers all the above aspects and thus excels in portraying the lovely and beautiful goddess “The Woman ” with complete respect, dignity & elegance in front of the whole world. To organize a Beauty Pageant with such a wide difference was thus a great step ever undertaken by anyone in the history of India, a lot many people have been since following and copying the ideas promoted by the organizers of this event but without its originality.

The name and style of Miss WORLD PANJABAN® is registered as trademark by Registrar of Trade Marks Registry, New Delhi.
