The internet was treated to a slice of history on Friday morning. In 1994, actress and model Aishwarya Rai was crowned with the title ‘Miss World’ at the age of 21. This was indeed a milestone for any Indian contestant entering a beauty pageant. Recently, a picture from this historic moment surfaced online and has gone viral. After Aishwarya Rai did the country proud with her win at the Miss World contest, a picture was taken where she could be seen having lunch with her mother. Take a look:

The picture was shared by the popular page Historic Vids (@historyinmemes) on May 26. Within a couple of hours, the click broke the internet and received over 2.6 million views and 35k likes, with the numbers only going up every minute. In the click that seemed to date back to 1994, we could see Aishwarya Rai with her mother Vrinda Rai. The duo was seated on a mat on the floor and was eating a meal that seemed to comprise rice with curry. Aishwarya Rai was wearing her ceremonial ‘Miss World’ sash and crown along with a bright pink sari.
The simple meal and the traditional way of eating it won a lot of appreciation from internet users. “I love how the 90s were so pure and genuine,” wrote one user. “Our values and traditions. Respecting food and bhoomata (mother Earth),” commented another one. Several praised Aishwarya Rai for her humility and simplicity even after winning a title at the global level.

It’s very nice to see beautiful people being humble and with their family. Nowadays, it is very common for beauty to be accompanied by pride.— Edward Fox (@edward1993) May 25, 2023
