Brains from the beauties

Mausam Shah wrote in The Himalayan Times :

Senior litterateur Rajendra Thapa, a jury member, asked the final question in the last round of the competition. The question was: Do you support quota reservation for women? Is it good or bad or should there be reservation for a certain time?

The contestants were asked to pick one option among three and justify the position with logical reasons.

This was the question which determined the winner as Shrestha’s short and sweet answer won the hearts of jury members.

Shrestha had replied that women should be given chance and they have already proved it as Nepal has its first woman President and two CNN heroes.
