I had occasion to work with her closely during the Women’s International Year in 1975

when she was chairing a Steering Committee and made me the member in charge of publicity.

Representatives from different political parties and women’s organizations were on the

committee and though the leftists claimed a sort of proprietary right over her, Aruna

encouraged and treated all members alike. It was not her political affiliations or her

involvement in a particular cause, which won her respect and recognition, but her utter honesty

in public life, her integrity and her compassion for the oppressed which made her an adorable

person. She had the courage to differ with and defy the mightiest in the land; yet her human

spirit prompted her to work in the worst of slums to offer succour to the poor and the exploited.

In later years – around late eighties and early nineties – Aruna Asaf Ali’s health began to

deteriorate. Though her mind remained alert, she could not actively take up her pet causes –

action for women’s advancement, planning for economic justice, role of media, reaffirmation
