Rita Faria

In 1966, Rita became the first Indian to win the prestigious title of Miss World. She was, however, not allured by the glamor industry and continued with her medical ambition, keeping her contacts with the modeling world limited to judging a couple of peagents. At 73, she is settled in Ireland with her doctor husband, two children and five grandchildren.
