Breaking stereotypes-Elders are always right!!

Our Indian society preaches that "Everything that an Elder says does or preaches is right.Listen to them.'
No not anymore!l Let's break this stereotype that elders are always right..they could be wrong too,they could be blinded,mislead or misinformed as well.As youngsters ,kids or students many of us have fallen prey to this obsolete thinking of these so-called elders in our society -be it our parents ,inlaws,neighbours or distant uncles or aunts.I think it's time to reason and say no to any illogical thing which harms us and succumbs us to a pressure that lets go of our self-esteem or worth!!

Beauty pageants-The Untold Reality!

The glittering tiara on a winner's head seems appalling to every girl or woman who ever dreamt of walking on ramp and becoming a beauty queen right from her childhood days.There's no woman who wouldn't like to dazzle as a diva and emerging a winner among hundred faces grabbing that instant spotlight .If you are a woman/girl who believes in herself and thinks that you have it in you,probably there are many more things you just need to ask yourself and enquire in a more practical approach before participating in any beauty pageant.

First of all,you need to ask yourself why you want to participate in the beauty pageant and what are you expecting from it.Is it just for fun ,or for trying something new as a different experience or you are looking for a long term future and a stepping stone towards your glam career.
The foremost reality you need to know about pageantry is that it is no charity organisation and just like any other commercial  purpose,beauty pageants are also a business at hand.
The idea behind giving you an opportunity and promises of turning you into a star,the event companies make a big time money.
So if you are a beginner and  expecting a lot by putting in little,you may just end up disappointing yourself.
You may have to invest as much initially as you can reap later as there are hundreds of expenses involved in a pageant especially when you are a starter-like dresses,travel,stay and other expenditures.
So make sure when you don't end up winning anything you don't feel like as you have been cheated by the company.It is very important to be strong in your budget and financial planning before you participate in a pageant.
Another thing is that you must enquire thoroughly about the pageant and the company which is organizing it.
It is such a derision to see some companies fradulating young guys,girls and married women in the name of beauty pageants.It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that pageantry has become a joke at many places,as every xyz or abc of person  is organizing a so-called beauty pageant where some registration fees is taken by the participants,sponsors are arranged and the money earned goes in the kitty of the organizers.
At the end,the participants just feel cheated as they don't get the right exposure and returns they were expecting from the pageant.
So,if you are seriously looking towards pageantry as a platform and looking for long-term goals, it is wise to enquire about the event company and the brand name of the organisers and before investing a considerable time and energy towards any pageant,keep a track of following things as it can save you from landing into a fraud or poor experience-

1.Always follow the pageant brand before participating,how long the brand has been organising the pageants and what kind of exposure they are giving to their winners.

2.Keep a track of what past winners of the pageant have been doing,you may talk to them and know their views and experiences about the pageant.

3.Make sure there are no cases or complaints of any kind against the pageant company in the past.

4.Always participate in a reputed pageant,as whether you win or not you shall always take home a good experience and exposure.

5.Remember nothing is for free so be ready to deal with the expenses involved.

6.A pageant should be able to offer good exposure to its winners.Check the sponsors of the pageant and the prizes offered to the winners.This determines the credibility of a pageant.

7.Do not spend blindly if the organisers ask money in the name of extra expenses/grooming services,unless you feel its really worth and would give you a good boost in future.

8.A good beauty pageant always focuses on brand building and quality of its show and would try to make your pageant time a memorable experience.Hence,it would provide the participants with the best of team in grooming,training,styling and makeup during the pageant.If any of these things seems to be missing in quality during the show it is quite probable that the organisers are more focused towards cutting their costs and filling the pockets.

9.Stay away from being influenced or lured towards any offers of becoming a winner.Pageants attempting any such way are definitely not worth participating .Also be mentally prepared that even if you are the most talented person in the lot,you may or may not win.

10.Once a winner,find out what costs the company is ready to bear for you and to promote you as their winner.

11.Learn to walk out and say NO at any moment it doesn't seem right.

Participate for the right reasons as a beauty pageant is great way of enhancing personality and building self confidence. 
Goodluck !! :)

Story to inspire-NGO Pahal for a good cause.
