56-year-old Dr Martha Farrell was among the four Indians killed in an attack on a guest house in Kabul on Wednesday. She lived and sacrificed her life for gender equality not only in India but across the borders too. This was not her first trip to Afghanistan, as an expert on women's empowerment Dr Farrell ran educational training workshops for Afghan officials. Security threats delayed the project numerous times but finally she left for Kabul on May 9 and was to return yesterday. She did return home a day early but not a homecoming her friends and family expected.
