Rest in peace.
A wonderful artist #RoohiBano is no more. She led a tragic life. After attaining unprecedented fame, she faced personal problems that led to mental illness, abject poverty and a life spent in wilderness.
May she finally find peace.
God bless her soul. pic.twitter.com/0mfU4IqdUL

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
