AFTER A long gap, a major beauty contest is coming to Bangalore. The semi-finals of the Sunsilk-Femina Miss India contest, to be precise. Some of us still remember the ruckus kicked up by assorted radical organisations when preparations were being made in the City for holding a part of the Miss World contest, a few years ago.

Now the entire media is excited about the Miss India event, and you can bet that hundreds of column centimetres will be spared by many journals, and several minutes of airtime by the electronic media, for the event. Bangalore's own beauty queen-turned-MTV VJ and animal rights activist Nafisa Joseph will be among the jury. Sitting with her will be former Miss World Yukta Mookhey, who is better known now as brand ambassador for the Country Clubs chain. Bangalore is home to several beauty queens like Rani Jeyaraj, Lara Dutta, and Sara Corner.
