Manushi especially impressed the judges after reaching the top five. During the question and answer session, she was asked which profession she thought deserved the highest salary and why.
In response, she said it was not a question about a person’s salary but rather the love and dedication that a person gives to their calling.

In her view mothers are worthy of the highest respect.
