The top contestants were chosen for their participation in the dance, singing, fashion, and a number of other independent talent competitions that were held in various colleges. The finale was recently held at Ambience Mall, Vasant Kunj, Delhi, where girls competed for the crown. Medha Arya from Bangalore emerged as the winner and Pune girl Anugya Sharma was declared the runner up.

Clean Ride

A cycle ride on a crisp winter morning will not only brighten your mood and keep you fit but also enable you to be a part of a campaign to create awareness about the rising levels of pollution. The Rotaract of Kalyani Nagar invites all the environmental enthusiasts of the city to participate in a cycle rally that will flag off from Koregaon Park Plaza at 7 am today and will cover around 15 km. It will pass through Wadia College, MG Road, Bund Garden Road and return to the starting point. The event will conclude with refreshments at Cafe Columbia.
