KATHMANDU: Meera Acharya, a noted radio anchor and wife of popular comedian Hari Bansha Acharya, passed away at the age of 46 on April 20 while undergoing treatment at the Kathmandu Model Hospital.

Meera, who had a history of sick sinus syndrome (a kind of heart disease) , was admitted to the hospital on April 17 according to a press release issued by Kathmandu Model Hospital administration. She was kept under ventilator support until she was pronounced death at 11:40 am on April 20.

Meera was cremated at the Pashupati Aryaghat on the banks of the Bagmati river as per Hindu rituals. Her funeral pyre was lit by her two sons Trilok and Mohit.

“She was shy, humble and honest,” recalled Madan Krishna Shrestha, a veteran artist and a very close friend of Hari Bansha. “They were the best lovers I’ve ever seen. Hari Bansha used to call her every hour when he would be away from home,” Shrestha shared.

Litterateur Raman Ghimire, a close friend of the Acharya family shared, “Meena who worked for 10 years in Music Nepal, was one of the most popular radio jockeys of her time.” Ghimire added, “Hari Bansha wouldn’t have been as successful and popular if Meera had not supported him with her love and affection.”

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Jhala Nath Khanal also expressed deep sorrow at Acharya’s demise whom he described as “a self-established media person and theatre artiste.” Issuing a press statement, PM Khanal expressed his condolence to the bereaved family.

I am so sad about this fact that Mrs. Achary is no more between us and if she was so close to Mr. Achary and responsible for his successfulness, then I wonder how he is going to live without her. I can feel. How he feels it must be very painful. Sudha Pathak, UK
