A commerce student at Prasadi Academy, Kumaripati, Usha Rajak proudly declares that she is excellent in her studies. With confidence she says, â€œIn my college among the girls, I have never settled for anything less than a distinction in examinations.â€ For her, education is most important. Usha says, â€œEducation is essential for a good career in the future. It is only through education that one can hold a good position and status in society.â€ This Scorpio who stands at 5â€™4â€ is an avid reader. She says her favourites books are â€˜Three men in a boatâ€™ by Jerome K Jerome and â€˜Lord of the Fliesâ€™ by William Golding. Then with a smile she says that like any other girl her age, she also enjoys reading Mills and Boon novels. Besides reading Usha loves painting and sketching.
â€œI am a romantic person,â€ she admits, â€œsometimes I even like to be alone and shed tears for all the right reasons. After that I find myself happier with life.â€ Usha is a deadly combination of beauty with brains. A permutation that is bound to drive the guys crazy. â€œBoys keep proposing to me but I have always said NO to them,â€ she says with a naughty sparkle in her eyes. Then mischievously adds,â€ I donâ€™t like to break anybodyâ€™s heartâ€¦ so I tell them that we can always be friends.â€ Is there any one special person in her life? â€œNo comments!â€ she says with a giggle.
Usha is predictable in that she loves chocolates, flowers and above all â€œbeing pampered and praised.â€ She says she would like to make her mark in the world of glamour. â€œBeing the youngest in the family, at home I always act as if I am a beauty queen!â€ â€œFor me the â€˜Lux Beauty Star 2004â€™ is an opportunity knocking at my door. I have to make the most of it.â€
Usha considers herself a serious contender for the title. â€œI should get what I want. I am willing to put my heart and soul into what it takes to get the title.â€
Does she think it will be an easy task? â€œIt needs determination, hard work and a bit of luck,â€ she says. â€œThe other contestants are all very pretty and friendly. We will have a very healthy competition. In fact seeing so many beautiful, smart girls, makes me feel good. I think this is a sure sign that women are coming to the forefront.â€ Will she be disappointed if she does not bag the title? â€œNot really,â€ she states, â€œafter all my favourite quote in life is, â€˜Winning is not important. Wanting to win isâ€™.â€ The Lux Beauty Star 2004 will be held on May 22. Watch this space for the countdown.
