She was a multi-faceted personality who trumped herself as a leading screen writer, essayist, author and film maker beside being a noted journalist. She wrote many romantic comedies for Hollywood films such as “When harry met sally” and “Sleepless in Seattle” which went on to become great hits. She was nominated for Oscar Award and for Academy Award as a screen writer. She also wrote a novel, Heartburn. Now, Nora Ephron has left us leaving behind a legacy of a most admired woman who made a name for herself in writing and directing Hollywood films with her distinctive classic voice and formidable and classic wit.

She was always concerned about women’s rights which reflected in her collection of essays. She, in fact, taught generation of women to be daughters and how to be so successfully in a male-dominated society.
