PRINCESS KNIGHT: Harjinder Kaur Seran all dressed in the Sikh attire, complete with Sri Sahib (sword), a shield and a turban

A Sikh lady warrior in a beauty pageant? That’s exactly what Harjinder Kaur Seran tried to portray in a recent beauty pageant in Kuala Lumpur. She went on stage in the Sikh bana, complete with a sri sahib (sword) and a shield. She also spotted a turban.

The princess knight, a mother of three daughters, certainly caught the eye of the crowd at the Mrs. Malaysia & Borneo International Global 2017 pageant, winning the Mrs. Popularity 2017 award.

“It was like a sudden idea planted by some Supreme Power. I had no control over it,” she told Asia Samachar when asked how did the idea come about.

On the whole, she was thrilled to be part of the competition.

“I felt proud to bring forward our Sikh warrior costume at the pageant. Truly felt like a Warrior at the ramp,” she said.
