Bano Darab Wafa was a close friend of renowned novelist Qaratul Ain Haider. Qarat-ul-Ain Haider's portrayal of Hamid Bano in his famous novel " Aag ka Dariya" is actually that of Aziz Bano. Apart from poetry, she also wrote fiction and novels which she herself set on fire. Once she threw all her written poetry into the blind well of her ancestral Haveli. Thankfully, people took it out. Indira Gandhi once attended a Mushaira in Lucknow, and when Aziz Bano presented her ghazals, she was enthralled and encouraged her. After her death , her poetry collection " Goonj' was published in 2009.
