A SHORT INDIAN GLOSSARY: Pamarthi

PAMARTHI

Nina Davuluri got the most attention among all contestants in the 2014 Miss America pageant. Deservedly. Davuluri won the title, and as the first Indian-American to do so, she made history. In the hullaballoo, one could be forgiven for forgetting there was another Indian-American contestant. That was Bindhu Pamarthi, Miss District of Columbia 2013. Though currently based in D.C., where she’s a law student at Georgetown University, Pamarthi partly grew up in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. And yes, she also did a Bollywood dance performance at the Miss America pageant. However, it’s unclear if the tireless choreographer Nakul Dev Mahajan—who coached Davuluri, not to mention First Lady Michelle Obama—had anything to do with Pamarthi’s turn on the dance floor.

Pamarthi, an activist for PETA, is keen on teaching public school students in the D.C. area via the Street Law program.
