I look forward to a strong association with Malabar Gold & Diamonds” said Manushi Chillar.
Manushi brought back the family values to the centre by giving a new meaning to human relationship with her award winning answer to the question of Miss World pageant’s jury: “Which profession deserves the highest salary and why? “I think a mother is of highest respect. I don’t think it’s just about cash but love and respect she gives to someone. She is the biggest inspiration in my life. Mother should get highest respect”. The youth icon’s answer, which made all the mothers in the world proud, went viral and took the social media by storm and Manushi’s followers on networking sites multiplied in millions in no time.
