September marked the crowning of Mrs. India – Woman of the Universe 2023 in Bengaluru. Dr. Pavana Dhanyakumar, the winner, was crowned by Veena Jain, Director of Mrs. International Super Queen and the National Director for international beauty pageants.

‘Pavana’ which stands for ‘pure’ embodies the elements of purity and humility in her. Hailing from Channagiri, she is a proud mother of two lovely children. Her parents, Mrs. Ratnamala and Mr. Kumaraswamy have been her strength since childhood. An engineer by profession, Pavana obtained her doctorate in Wellness and Lifestyle management with a vision to use her research findings to help others.

Dr. Pavana has an innate passion towards protecting our nature and has taken up this cause on a serious note. She has worked in the renewable energy sector and supports multiple startups. She has also devoted a lot of her time in rejuvenating lakes as part of the Ecowatch team, led by Akshay Heblikar.

Pavana has always been focused and determined throughout her life. Nothing stops her from achieving her goals. Always keeping fitness in mind and complimenting it with the right nutrition under the guidance of Dr. Ramana Krishnan, she has managed to stay on the radar of her health goals. She has also been guided by Dr Kavita PS for fitness and Meenakshi Karanth for grooming. She is leaving no stones unturned for the international pageant ahead and is looking forward to making her dreams come true, yet again.

After this success, Dr. Pavana will now be representing our nation, India at the international pageant and hopes to bring home the crown. “Winning the crowning and returning to my homeland will help me support many other causes which are close to my heart. I don’t look at this as a single project but a long term commitment towards building a better society”, affirms Dr. Pavana.

Here’s wishing the beautiful girl with a golden heart Dr. Pavana the very best in her journey ahead.
