Shaista Shameem's story
A beautiful story on Ms Shaista Shameem, the Director of the Human Rights Commission of Fiji, is in the Sunday Times today, 11 February 2007. It tells of her father's arrival from India, his meeting up with her mother, her siblings, the schools that she attended, her stint as a Fiji Times journalist, school teacher, university tutor and then to Director of the Human Rights Commission. A very interesting story indeed. Read on about the Suva girl, Shaista, here. If the lady writes a biography, it would surely be a seller.
