About the Book

A valuable guide for young women wanting to wear a crown. A step-by-step, comprehensive guide that should add just the right boost towards winning.

- Sathya Saran, author and journalist

'The only way to prepare for a pageant is to be a better version of yourself each day, and this opus will help you be it. This scrupulously written, beautiful book is a must for every pageant aspirant.'

- Shaine Soni, Miss Trans Queen India 2020 Beauty Queen:


The Pathway to Pageantry is a one-stop sourcebook on everything you ever wanted to know about pageantry – its meaning, history, inner mechanics, organisation and required preparedness. The book throws light on the history of pageantry, and gives a very real account of what to expect at a pageant (the good and the bad). It explains in detail every aspect of pageant preparedness, such as body grooming, nutrition, wardrobe, catwalk, interview and judges’ perspectives, while drawing on a number of examples about what worked for people and what did not. Bringing in information from the author’s personal experiences, the book is the first of its kind and a unique attempt in presenting pageantry as a composition of science, art, and grace in equal proportions. It’s not just for aspiring beauty queens but also for every individual who wants to look and feel healthy and beautiful.

She served as a judge for ‘Miss India New York 2013’ and ‘Miss India USA 2013’. She has also modelled extensively in the Mumbai fashion industry. Anvita hopes to build an institutional framework for pageantry in India, especially for the aspirants to pursue a systematic path. Beauty Queen is an important milestone in that direction.
