Q. Widow Kamala Das, a famous poet embraced Islam at the age of sixty-five after a young man of 38 yrs named Sadiq Ali wooed her reciting Urdu couplets. Later, she felt it was not worth it to change one's religion and said I fell in love with a Muslim after my husband's death. He was kind and generous in the beginning.
