By her side during the competition were his three children and her husband Dr. Kattayat Mohandas, an anaesthesiology at Prince Court Hospital in Kuala Lumpur.
Asked what made her take part in the competition, she said: “To inspire all married women out there. Do not be afraid to show our flaws. Flaws are what make us perfect. Age is just a number.”
A friend, Phoopinder Kaur, who reached out to Asia Samachar to highlight Harveen’s feat, had many good words for her.
“She is friendly, good-hearted, reliable. She is an inspiration to her family and friends. She never gives up, motivates the people around, a very postive person,” said Phoopinder.
“Not forgetting, Harveen is also very consistent and disciplined in all her undertakings. A real blessing as a friend.”
