Sad news. I so wish I'd been able to share a cup of tea and learn a little from this lovely, wise woman. She had so much to teach...and though she had no 'formal' education, she was extensively well versed in Arabic, Persian, Urdu, English literature, writing literary pieces vividly depicting the rich cultures of the region. Duas for her and her family.#WomenWhoInspire
