Sushmita Sen took a trip down memory lane, celebrating 30 years since her historic win as the first Indian Miss Universe on May 21, 1994.

Taking to Instagram on Tuesday, Sushmita posted an old picture and penned a long note.

In the throwback picture, the actress was seen holding a toddler in her arms while smiling at her. She wore a white dress and her sash. Sharing the picture, Sushmita captioned the post, "This little girl, who I met in an orphanage, taught an 18-year-old me, life’s most innocent yet profound lessons, ones that I live by to this day. This captured moment is 30 years old today, as is India’s first-ever victory at Miss Universe!!!"

“What a journey it's been & continues to be...” Sushmita reminisced. Gratitude flowed through her words as she thanked India for being her ‘greatest identity and strength,’ and the Philippines for the enduring love and sense of belonging she found there.

The hashtag #mahalkita, meaning palace of angels, hinted at the child in the photo, a silent witness to Sushmita’s life-changing moment. She also fondly remembered her fellow contestant, Carolina Gomez, with the message, “I remember & celebrate your grace, my beautiful @carogomezfilm.”

Her message concluded with an outpouring of appreciation for her fans, family, and friends. “Each one of you,” she wrote, “has made a difference to my life & inspired me in ways you may never know!! I feel the love!!! Thank you!!! WHAT AN HONOUR!!!”

During the 1994 event, in the final round, Sushmita was asked, "What for you is the essence of being a woman?” She replied, "Just being a woman is a gift of God that all of us must appreciate. The origin of a child is a mother, who is a woman. She shows a man what caring, sharing and loving is all about. That’s the essence of being a woman."
