Some 80 beautiful women from across the world are contesting in the Miss Universe pageant, the finale of which will be held on May 31 in Thailand.

Amrita Thapar , the Femina Miss India-Universe titleholder and India's hopeful for the Miss Universe crown, is confident of bringing home the coveted tiara.




"I'm all prepared for the big event. I've always been a positive thinker and at the end of it all, that is what makes or breaks you. Hope everything goes fine and I do my country proud," a report quotes Amrita as saying from Bangkok.

23-year-old Amrita is a fashion designer who beat about two-dozen contestants to win the Femina Miss India-Universe title early this year.

The five-foot-eight-inch tall stunner has good modeling experience and an insight into the fashion industry. She is also an adventure seeker. Kickboxing and mountain climbing are some of her passions.

Amrita is already in Bangkok for the pageant that is eagerly looked forward by millions around the world.

With over 80 delegates and seen in over 171 countries, the global broadcast will begin by announcing the Top 15. After a breath-taking evening gown competition, the international panel of judges will then pick the Top 10, leading to the popular swimsuit competition. The Top 5 answer final questions will culminate in the crowning of Miss Universe 2005.

Also featured in the pageant are the awards for Miss Photogenic, Miss Congeniality and National Costume.

In the past, India has won eight international beauty pageants, including two Miss Universe titles. We hope Amrita will complete the hat trick.
