However, it was her answer to the final question that sealed her win. When asked which profession deserved the highest salary, Manushi said mothers deserve a raise. “When you talk about salary, I don’t think it’s just about cash, but it’s the love and respect you give to someone. I think my mom has always been my biggest inspiration; mothers sacrifice so much for their kids. It is certainly that one profession which deserves the highest salary, the highest respect and love.”
