With Manushi Chhillar's win, India ties with Venezuela for the most number of Miss World winners - 6 all in all. After Priyanka Chopra's coronation in 2000, India has not had a Miss World. And not only was Manushi's winning answer the highlight of the contest, she is also winning hearts with her quick wit and grace in her responses on social media.

Congratulations, Manushi Chhillar!

Here, Deccan Herald compiles the winning moments of the Miss Worlds who have come before her. Take a walk down memory lane and relive the moments again when Indian beauties owned the global stage.
