Sushmita Sen is telling us why education is important, and she has a valid point

Sushmita Sen is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful brains in the entire Hindi-movie industry. She’s always been one of those beauty queens who deserved each sparkle of that crown, and have thus done absolute justice to it.

But unlike most beauty queens, Sush’s duty towards the nation does not finish as soon as she passes on the crown. Sushmita Sen, being the forever-kinda-queen that she is, has been associated with a number of social issues and organizations to truly make a difference in the lives of the less fortunate.

Yesterday, she attended the Pratham Gala, and spoke about the importance of education in one’s life. For the uninitiated, Pratham is an NGO that works towards providing high-quality, low-cost education to the kids of Mumbai’s slums.

In her address last night, Sushmita said, “My baba was right: ‘Beta if you want to get to know yourself, if you want to know the place you have in this world, you need to educate yourself; educate yourself to know that your life matters, that living it with dignity is not an option, it’s a birthright for every single life that exists and co-exists.”

At the gala, held in Huston, Texas, on April 19 night, Sush also spoke about the importance of empathy, about how easy it is to forget about others’ existence, given the lives we’re now leading. And while she was at it, she even went on to quote Winston Churchill.

Through the gala, the NGO managed to raised USD 1.4 million at Texas last night. The money raised will directly impact the education of 2,00,000 kids in India.
