بود و نبود یک زن قهرمان بود…
قشنگ و زیبا
عالم و فاضل
A glorious writer, a laureate poet, a talented painter, a renowned counselor, a celebrated philanthropist and an honored academic, this is the story of Afghanistan’s eternal celebrity. The multi-talented intellectual (and artist) was so enormously popular in her heyday, and continues to be, that she has ascended many levels of memorialization that started from being called a mythical figure to then securing the title of a national hero to finally being beautified as a saint. No other historical figure – save for Zoroaster – has been so dignified in Afghanistan. At the height of career, she was more popular than world-renowned mystic Maulana Jalaluddin Mohammad Balkhi was at his peak.
Though without a complete biography, she has been mentioned perennially throughout Afghanistan, Iran and Tajikistan. Beautiful, tall, talented and accomplished, she is considered the national pride of Afghanistan.
Her skills: writing, poetry, painting, sign language, carving Indus script & gardening. She lived in a house that she cultivated to be as beautiful as the Japanese Kenroku-en garden.
