Indian- American Nina Davuluri might have her feet planted on the ground after she was crowned Miss America -2013, but her maternal grandmother Dr Vege Koteshwaramma is definitely on cloud nine.

Koteshwaramma, who is the chairman of Montessori group of educational institutions in Vijayawada in coastal Andhra Pradesh, was virtually mobbed by mediapersons seeking her views on her granddaughter’s rare achievement. And she could not hide her happiness while giving answers to their queries patiently.

“Despite being born in the family of doctors, Nina has chosen her field – to grow to the top in the beauty pageants. I am glad that she could achieve it finally,” Koteshwaramma said at her Rajapuram residence on Tuesday.

She said she was a little apprehensive about the outcome when Nina was facing the final round in the pageant. “But I was amazed at the way she answered questions from judges. I wondered how such a hesitant girl, who grew up in our care, could speak with so much authenticity in all fields,” Koteshwaramma said.

Her aunt Avirneni Sasi Bala, who celebrated Nina’s achievement with all the family members at her residence, said the girl had learnt classical dances including Kuchipudi.
