To observe the International Day of the Girl Child, which is celebrated on October 11, the British High Commission organized a competition for women aged between 18 and 23 to become the British High Commissioner to India for a day.
To enter, the competitors submitted a short video presentation on the theme "What does gender equality mean to you?"
A total of 58 students from across the country submitted their videos.
The successful entry was from Bahal, who plans to become a social entrepreneur after completing her higher studies in public policy and law.
Expressing delight over the achievement, acting British High Commissioner for a day, Bahal said: "Acting as British High Commissioner for a day has been a great and really unique experience. I've learned about the breadth and depth of United Kingdom-India relations - and had the opportunity to highlight the importance of gender equality and inclusivity, issues which are of great importance to me."
