Adieu Comrade Meena Rai

We are deeply shocked by the sudden demise of Comrade Meena Rai on the morning of November 21, 2023. She passed away of brain haemorrhage at a hospital in Allahabad where she was admitted around midnight. She was perfectly healthy till previous evening. 

Comrade Meena Rai was the managing editor of Samkaleen Janmat and Vice President of Jan Sanskriti Manch, Uttar Pradesh. She retired a couple of years ago from her teaching job. 

She worked as a committed social, political and cultural activist throughout her life. Her vibrant presence will be missed in cultural events and political programmes where her bookstall used to be a quintessential feature. She had dedicated her life towards furthering progressive and democratic ideas and values. 

Her widely read and appreciated memoirs 'Samar na jite koi' being published serially at the Janmat portal will sadly remain incomplete. 

Red Salute Comrade Meena Rai.
