Our Cultural Heritage - हमें जिन पर नाज़ है। - Padmashree Patricia Mukhim


Padmashree Patricia Mukhim

Patricia Mukhim has been associated with AIR for at least 30 years and with DDK for at least two decades. As an educator, activist and journalist there are several areas of concern about which She has participated by way of panel discussions or special talks. As a gender activist She has taken up women’s issues with passion and commitment as an advocate for better policies. These have been shared with both AIR and DDK. As a political observer and commentator She has taken part in poll results analysis pertaining to her state and that of the north east region. She has also been a keen observer of health issues in Meghalaya and the hugely deficient health care system leading to abnormally high maternal and infant mortality rates and have expressed this concern over the two mediums AIR and DDK.

Patricia Mukhim is a renowned journalist- activist and believe her brief is to get the attention of government both at the state and centre through incisive articles. She has vehemently opposed and exposed the diminishing returns of militancy when it first started in Meghalaya and was the founder President of Shillong We Care, an organisation that created public awareness on issues of militancy and provided a platform for victims of extortion and intimidation by militant outfits to share their concerns. This was considered a dangerous activity in the years 1994- 1998 when militancy was at its peak and many people were gunned down for opposing the militants’ diktat. Perhaps it was for this act of courage that the Government of India conferred her with Padmashree in the year 2000. 

In March 2008, She took on the editorship of Meghalaya’s oldest and largest circulating English daily – The Shillong Times and continues to hold that post. She has been a member of the National Security Advisory Board since 2011 and the National Foundation for Communal Harmony since 2010. She is also currently member of the Indian Institute of Mass Communication (IIMC) New Delhi. 

Her Address: Editor, The Shillong Times, Shillong Times Building, Rilbong, Shillong- 4
