Hend Rostom was not Marilyn Monroe of the East. Hend Rostom outshined Marilyn like the sun outshines the moon. In addition to Hend's sultry beauty and her sensuous sex appeal, she was strong, intelligent and compassionate. She was heart, soul and mind, in addition to body. In her latter years, grace was her sexiest attribute. May she rest in peace.
