Actor Sushmita Sen has revealed new details from the time she won the Miss Universe crown in 1994. She was the first Indian to bring home the title, followed by the likes of Yukta Mookhey, Lara Dutta and most recently, Harnaaz Sandhu. Sushmita has said in a new interview that she did not fully understand the final question that was asked of her during the ceremony. 

In the final round, the actor was asked, "What, for you, is the essence of being a woman?" She replied, saying, "Just being a woman is a gift from God that all of us must appreciate." The origin of a child is the mother, who is a woman. She shows a man what caring, sharing, and loving are all about. That’s the essence of being a woman. "

In an interview with her daughter Alisah's school magazine, she was asked if she would like to change anything about the answer after all these years. She said, "You know what I loved about that question and that answer as I've looked back at it for so many years is that they never asked what the qualities of a woman were or the attributes of a woman. They said, "What is the essence of a woman?"

"And I was from a Hindi medium school, so I did not know that much English back in the day. I don't know how I understood what essence meant and answered that question with such clarity and such experience, even though I lacked it. I think God sat on my tongue and said, let this be said, because this is how you will choose to live your life. I stated that being born a woman is a great gift from God. I stand by that. Nothing has changed on that front. Being born a woman is something. It’s a great gift from God, and we must all appreciate it. which is true because life always deserves appreciation. "A woman is not only the womb from which life comes, so she's not only born to be a mother, but she's also here to share and show the world what loving, caring, and sharing is all about," she said.

Making changes to her answer, she said, "There I spoke about showing it to a man. Why did I say that? It wasn't a romantic line. It was to say that a mother gives birth to a generation of women and men. So the kind of son we raise is also a part of our essence. And this is how it became an all encompassing answer. And I look back at it and I say, "My God, truly it is powerful to be a woman." Would I add something? Today, after 28 years? If it would, it would be self discovery. A woman must not just have a journey on the outside. She must also discover who she is internally. That is the essence of a woman. "

Sushmita has two daughters--Renee and Alisah. She was recently seen in the second season of her popular show, Aarya.
