NRI Pulse


Veena Rao's Bio

Veena Rao is the founder, publisher and editor-in-chief of NRI Pulse, an Atlanta, US based newspaper. She has been recognized by the Limca Book of Records (the Indian version of the Guinness Book of Records) as the first Indian woman to edit and publish a newspaper outside India.
NRI Pulse  is a free monthly newspaper and news portal that serves the South Asian-American communities of Georgia and other southeastern states of the US.
Veena Rao launched NRI Pulse in 2006, after she saw the need for a news-based publication in the region to keep the local community connected. This, she saw, as being vital for the socio-economic and cultural growth of the community. NRI Pulse has today become the primary source of news for South Asians in the region, and a strong voice for the community.
Veena Rao has a background in print journalism, having worked on the news desk of the Indian Express in India, and a couple of community publications in Atlanta as editor. She has a Masters’ Diploma in Journalism and Communication from Symbiosis International University and a Masters’ in Economics from Fergusson College.
