A life of endless sufferings.
Her life was a tableau of endless suffering. Her art an incandescent testament to her talent. The gift of genius came with an exacting price – she fell deeper into a crevasses of her unquiet mind. May she truly, finally, be in peace now #RoohiBano pic.twitter.com/4J54YLxR3Q
