RIP Banu Apa

Aaj Urdu ka bohat baRa hissa mar gaya - Banu Apa chali gayin

Thar ke tapte sehra main - 
neem ke peR ke neeche -
 paani ka jo thanda ghaRa hota hai na - 
Banu apa ki tehreeraiN us se bhi ziyada thandi chaun thi

Agar Banu apa "Raja Gidh" na likhtiN to Urdu kabhi balig na hoti

May All mighty bless her soul in eternal peace forever.

I did not read all her writings but of course whatever she wrote became part of Urdu literature. I have one novel of hers and a book "Zawiya" by Ashfaq saheb marhoom.
During my younger days I had been familiar with all these names but did not have time or opportunity to read all of them
