The Divine India Group organized the 2021 edition of Miss Divine Beauty pageant on 26th September 2021 where Rashmi Madhuri was crowned as the new queen, at the ITC Hotel, New Delhi. At the same event, Alankrita Shahi was crowned as Miss Eco Angel and Vanshika Parmar was crowned as Beauty with a Responsibility winner.

Not new to pageantry, Rashmi has previously won the title of first runner-up at Miss Divine Beauty 2019, Miss Queen of Karnataka 2019, second runner-up at India’s Miss TGPC Season-3 and third runner-up at Miss Glam India 2016. She believes that in order to make a difference in someone's life, you don't have to be beautiful, rich, or perfect. You just have to care.

Talking about her advocacy, Rashmi said, “I care about the menstruating women and girls in my country. With the help of a pad incinerator, we can safely dispose of the menstrual waste, it breaks down the napkins to 1gm of ash making it the easiest way to dispose of the menstrual waste without any harm to nature, the people who collect waste, microorganisms and ecosystem that surrounds it. I am currently putting in my humble efforts in the state of Karnataka, however, I would love to take the platform of Miss Divine Beauty and Miss Earth organization to voice this cause to reach out to the audience of the world.”



The newly crowned Miss Earth India 2021 Rashmi succeeds Miss Earth India 2020 Tanvi Kharote, who represented India at Miss Earth 2020 but remained unplaced at the end of the first ever virtual pageant. This year, Rashmi will represent India at the 21st Miss Earth pageant, scheduled to be held virtually again this year in November, due to the uncertainty of the ongoing pandemic situation.
