Parvathy Omanakuttan returns to Mumbai
December 17, 2008

First runner-up to the Miss World 2008 crown Parvathy Omanakuttan returned to Mumbai from Johannesburg, South Africa [Images], early this morning.

Parvathy, 21, is the country's first-ever Miss India of Malayali descent and many believed that her excellent performance at the pageant would secure first place.

She lost out in the final round, however, by just a whisker to Russian contestant Ksenia Sukhinova.

Despite her disappointment at having missed the title, the young beauty queen put on a big smile and waved to the crowd that had gathered at Mumbai's Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport in the wee hours to welcome her home.
