i wasn't sure where to post this...'General Chatter' seemed too casual and 'Arcade Games' is more for tech problems i guess...

i'm sure a lot of you from the RB community will remember a player called Rashh......Rashmi was the mother of two children and she lived in Mumbai, India and she was my friend...she was an excellent player but she hasn't played RB for some time due to chronic illness...her long struggle ended on the 19th September and she is now at peace.
My deepest sympathy to Rashmi's husband and children.

What follows is a one of Rashmi's favourite poems by Gitanjali which she kindly shared with me

This is for Rashmi

GIFT

All that my hands can place in yours
Will slip through your fingers
and fall forgotten to the dust
Rather
When you have leisure
Wander idly through my garden in Spring
And let an unknown hidden flower's
scent startle you
Into sudden wondering-
Let that displaced moment
Be my Gift

A single shivering fleck of sunset light stops you
Turns your daydreams to gold
Let that light be my Gift

Truest treasure is FEELING
It sparkles for a moment, then goes
It does not tell it's name, it's tune
Stops us in our track, it's dance disappears
At the toss of an anklet
I know no way to it-

No hand nor word can read it
Friend, whatever you take of it
On your own
Without asking, without knowing
Let that be yours
