    NEW YORK – JUS Punjabi, the first American-Punjabi TV Channel, has made great strides and is getting increasingly more popular since its inception in January 2007. It abundantly caters to all the religious, cultural, spiritual, entertainment and social needs of the people, particularly Punjabis. It telecasts Aasa di Vaar Keertan by four eminent Raagi Jathas together for two and a half hours early in the morning, followed by sukhmani Sahib Path (Psalm of Life). Daily talks and discussions on topical burning issues - economic, political, social, religious, cultural – with provision of seeking suggestions, ideas, opinion and views of the viewers - brings them closer to the anchors and becomes a part of the program. V.I.P. weekly interviews with eminent achievers and celebrities adds color to the popularity of the T.V. channel. Enough time is given to songs, dances, Bhangra and Giddha. The viewers are kept well informed with updated Punjabi news bulletins more than twice a day. Two week-end divine discourses by the late world - renowned Gurmat scholar and philosopher Giani Sant Singh Maskeen add to the knowledge and wisdom of the viewers. Twice at a week-end special program “Jithe Jaaye Bahai Mera Satguru” takes the viewers to prominent historic Gurdwaras while sitting in their drawing or bed room.

She has had a long and chequered career in the media industry, both in India and the United States. She was born and brought up in a Sikh family and retains strong family ties to her native state, Punjab and native country India. It was her long-held desire to establish an American Punjabi channel in the United States to reach out to the large and Vibrant Indo-Punjabi/Sikh community and give them a voice and exposure in their adopted country. Being Punjabi and Sikh herself, she brings her own unique perspective and understanding to serving the special programming needs of her community.
