<![CDATA[Koyal Rana, a Delhi University alumnus won the Femina Miss India title earlier this year, and has been busy preparing for the Miss World 2014 pageant ever since. After having completed her Bachelors of Business Studies from Deen Dayal Upadhyaya College in May this year, she underwent training from various industry experts for the pageant which will be held today, the 14th of December at ExCel in London. She has already made a mark at the program by reaching the finals of the Top 5 Challenges. Currently, these are the events and positions at which India stands: Beach Beauty – Top 5 (Result To Be Announced) Multimedia – Top 5 (Result To Be Announced) Beauty with a Purpose – Top 10 (Result To Be Announced) People’s Choice Award – Top 10 (Result To Be Announced) Apart from these, India won the Best Designer Award round at Miss World. The winning outfit had been designed by Falguni and Shane Peacock. Koyal is a finalist at the Dances of the World event, and was among the Top 20 and Top 32of the Top Model and Sports Round respectively. The Beauty with a Purpose project that she presented was a part of a campaign initiated by her NGO, Moksha Foundation, which is a New Delhi based organisation. Many Delhi University students are members of the same. Her project “Swasth Bhavishya” revolves around the sanitation and hygiene conditions of government run schools in various parts of the city. The team hopes to expand its project further, and believes it stands a good chance of making it to the top at the Miss World pageant. When asked about the support she’s received so far, Koyal said, “I’ve received so much love and appreciation not just from family, friends and people I know personally but from fans and well wishers too. All I’ll be concentrating on tonight is to make everyone who’d been a part of my journey proud and to represent my country to the best of my abilities. I pray that I can do justice to the hope of over 1.3 Billion Indians and my supporters from around the world!” The Miss World Pageant 2014 will be broadcast live tonight at 8 pm IST on Zee Café.
