Meena Ji in The World of Media

Meena comes from a rich heritage. A Bengali from Kolkatta India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. Her parents developed this unique bond in a home with two religions, Hinduism and Islam which opened a new world for her. Tolerance, patience, acceptance and love were the key words that surrounded her childhood.

Meena stepped into broadcasting and teaching by accident and not by design, an adventure that would change the course of her life as a career woman in Pakistan, a developing country. These were honorable professions from all standards, especially in a patriarchal society where job-seeking women are often susceptible to a number of misinterpretations.



Meena had an illustrious career as a news anchor-woman on TV/radio, and it was during this time that several independent awards were bestowed on her. As an Anchorwoman for Pakistan National News, she received the National Graduate Award and the National Council of Arts Award.

 


She has been trained at BBC London in broadcasting disciplines such as interviewing, news reporting, production, and editing, and she has sixteen years of extensive communication production experience in television and radio broadcasting in both Pakistan and the U.S.



Meena Ji's Story Telling performances at the Smithsonian and the Brooklyn Museum of Art which required dramatic interpretation of the 15th century Moghul Art received exceptionally good reviews in the local papers. She continues to serve as an ambassador of goodwill by promoting Asian Classical Poetry on the Poet's of the old world in the form of an internet and cable Radio show titled "The Dead Poet's Forum" with Fairfax Public Access live online radio at 3pm. every Sunday. Her critically acclaimed program showcases the Classical Poetry of Khayam, Rumi, Ghalib, Tagore, Rehman Baba, Gibran and Kalidasa. And many more.
