Pakistan mourns IT girl genius

Arfa Karim Randhawa, who became the world's youngest Microsoft Certified Professional at the age of nine, passed away at the weekend after a heart attack following an epileptic fit.

when Bill Gates was impressed by her genius, he invited her to the company's US headquarters, he offered medical help and was in touch with her family.

Arfa used to say, 'Don't take our generation lightly'," actually she was role model to so many other young people - young girls, who referred to her as "Arfa aapi (sister Arfa)".
senior politicians joined relatives at her funeral in the city on sunday - she has already had a technology park named after her in Lahore. 
        Arfa is really going to be missed.

OMG, even if she wasn't as remarkable as she was, dying at such a young age is a tragedy, and very very sad, when you think about all the dreams and goals she's left behind, and her family too. What age was she? I can imagine her parents must be devasted...

May she rest in peace
