Miss India Worldwide UK is engaged in stem cell research
11 March 2010: Niharica Raizada believes being beautiful is just not enough.
In all fairness to the fair sex, recently crowned Miss India Worldwide UK Raizada has even put her words to practice. The beauty with brains continues to be engaged with her job in stem cell research at a London hospital.
The 24-year-old, working at Hammersmith Hospital, told the Telegraph that maybe it is the peer pressure in India these days that pushes the women to be acknowledged as smart, independent, highly qualified individuals."
Raizada says there is a sense that, having only relatively recently achieved greater parity with the boys, the women now have a need to prove themselves. It is not enough just to be seen to be a beauty or a home maker.
