Atlanta, GA, October 16, 2023: Georgia’s pageant universe experienced a supernova moment with the inception of the “Oitijhyo Mrs. Universe GA 2023” pageant on Oct 8th 2023. This celestial event not only crowned a deserving queen but also catapulted her to the cosmic stage of “Mrs. Universe 2024.” The event was hosted by Anusmita Bardhan Sur and Lakshmi Mandavilli, generously assisted by the duo, Sucheta Chakraborty and Chalamaya Batchu. Their chosen launchpad was the Goldenvenue in Cumming, GA.

The coronation night saw Juhi Rana ascend to her rightful place as the “Oitijhyo Mrs. Universe GA 2023,” with Anuja Golla and Veena Rajoju orbiting her as the first and second runners-up.
A unique orbit in the pageant cosmos was the “Avant Garde” round, a runway where contestants displayed their dazzling personas through ingenious outfits and designs.
These extraordinary contestants were guided by five shining mentors, who took part in eight dazzling grooming sessions, and had a 24/7 beacon of support through the Oitijhyo Team. Their journeys were judiciously navigated by a constellation of judges, including the brilliant Dr. Florence, the celestial Saruul Olulu, and the astronomical Dr. Ashley Little, resulting in a pageant that radiated with excitement and stardust.
Adding to the cosmic brilliance was the Creative Fashion Show, where Oindrila Dutta emerged as the shining star, with Sangeeta Ramrakhyani and Nilam Maina glittering as first and second runners-up.
