"Meena's stunning eyes draw us mysteriously into her sharp and precise movement poetry. The mastery of her movements were highlighted by the speed and intricate rhythms with which she executed them. She led us along an angular and powerfully feminine path...There was a fearlessness in Meena's quick and effortless movements which seemed to be embodied from the bottom of her feet to the very tip of her carefully articulated fingers."
