MISS EARTH INDIA
PRIYAN SAIN

DESCRIBE YOUR CHILDHOOD/GROWING YEARS
My childhood was filled with lots of fun and adventures. Running through the lush green fields, climbing trees and playing with the farm animals. Life was simple and filled with love and laughter. Although I faced some challenges, it helped me to transform into the fearless and confident individual I am today.

WHAT IS YOUR MEMORABLE MOMENT?
Being an adventure-loving girl, I've created lots and lots of memories, but one of the most memorable moments is rafting. Since childhood I have been scared of water. But overcoming my fear, the rush of riding the rapids, and later floating on river Ganges surrounded by the breathtaking Himalayas felt so surreal. I felt alive and connected to nature in a whole new way

ANY SPECIAL STORIES OR FACTS ABOUT YOUR FAMILY?
I have a very small family consisting of me, my mother and my younger brother. Each one of supporting each other and being strength of one another. Earlier, I believed my family was my world, but learning the stories from Panchantra, I decided to make the world like my family.

WHAT IS THE MOST UNUSUAL THING YOU HAVE EVER DONE?
Being born in a patriarchal society, I was brought up like a tomboy. Before stepping into the world of pageantry, I barely knew how to be a lady. From walking into sneakers to my first step in heels, from wearing nothing to a full face of makeup, I never imagined I could come this far. So I would say being a girly girl was the most unusual thing I ever did, but now I love embracing myself as a woman.

WHAT TIPS CAN YOU SHARE TO PROMOTE ECOTOURISM & CLIMATE CHANGE?
Promoting ecotourism is a great way to raise awareness about climate change. Ecotourism focuses on visiting natural areas while minimizing negative impacts on the environment. By engaging in eco-friendly activities and supporting local communities, we can contribute to conservation efforts and sustainable development. It's a win-win situation where we get to explore and appreciate the beauty of nature while also helping to protect it.

WHAT MAKES YOU PROUD OF YOUR COUNTRY?
Historically referred to as the Golden Bird, India was known for its wealth and prosperity. The British colonisation of India lasted nearly 200 years. It not only resulted in exploitation of resources but also suppression of Indian culture and traditions. We are rising strong after independence as a proud nation with our hard work and determination. We have made remarkable progress in various fields, such as science, technology and the economy, a recent example of which is Chandrayan 3 and Aditya l1. We will continue to move forward and strive for further progress.

WHAT IS YOUR ADVOCACY?
I am on a mission of GREENER, CLEANER and HEALTHIER FUTURE. The environmental crisis in the world is a pressing issue that needs immediate attention. Rapid population growth, more forest area is brought under cultivation to meet the food demands (In 2022 GHI, India ranks 107th out of 121 countries) and conventional farming practices are having a negative impact on the environment, including soil degradation, water pollution, and loss of biodiversity. So here I am educating people about practices such as organic farming, rotational farming, etc as India is an Agrarian country with around 70% of its people depending directly or indirectly upon agriculture
