Sharing the video on her Instagram profile, Namrata Shirodkar, wrote: “Was asked a tricky question that dates back centuries! This was my answer… What would yours be?” The question that was asked to the three finalists was: “What came first, the chicken or the egg?” Here’s what Namrata’s response was: “Chicken. If there was no chicken, there would be no egg.”
Namrata Shirodkar captioned the post: “Many moments relived. The excitement, the butterflies, the craziness of it all… It’s all about that moment. One life is all we’ve got. Go on and make it worthwhile. Dream big! The one thing that you have that nobody else does is you. This has always been my mantra. For all the girls who dream, make it happen. Nothing is impossible.”
