First runner up of ‘India’s Next Top Model’, Nisha Yadav is a sheer example of how persistence can dismantle the barriers and that nothing can stop you from walking the biggest runways of your life, provided you’re confident in yourself.
A lawyer-in-making and a part-time fashion model, Nisha Yadav was born in a farmer-family with modest earnings, belongs to a small village located in the interiors of Rajasthan.
She has five more siblings and her father struggled day and night for years so his children could at least benefit from the basic amenities like nutritious food and education.
As many would probably like to think, the injustice of underage girls living in rural areas is now a story of the days long gone in Modern India. However, Nisha’s story in Smriti Irani’s words made it crystal clear that such cases persist and are possibly worse than we think.
Speaking of Nisha, she grew up in a village close to Kotputli in Rajasthan. As her father is a farmer, before heading to school, Nisha and her sisters would bathe and feed the buffaloes on their farm.
Coming from a small town and having experienced a hard time getting recognition in the fashion industry, Nisha feels that yearning models should be prepared to fight it out. Also, in one her interviews, she revealed, that in even today several people taunt her father, saying “teri beti chaadi-baniyan pehen ke paise kamati hain.”
“But he does not react. He knows what I’m doing and that’s important,” added Nisha.
The model has true inspiration for everyone. And it is highly appreciated how this daughter of a farmer is making the country proud. Team Kiddaan congratulates the model and wishes her best luck for the future.
