‘Death is but crossing the world, as friends do the seas; they live in one another still. This is the comfort of friends, that though they may be said to die, yet their friendship and society are, in the best sense, ever present, because immortal.’ William Penn
Those of us who knew Rashmidi at some point in our lives, were touched by her infectious energy and vivacity. She was as ready for an impromptu adventure as she was for a serious medical emergency.
A girl from Lucknow, she joined Calcutta National Medical College in 1998, did her postgraduation in Gynaecology and was practising as a successful young gynaecologist in Kolkata after a stint in KMC Manipal.
She was infected with the dreaded Covid 19 while working and was being treated at Medica Hospital, Kolkata as her condition worsened. She passed away on 28th May 2021 at the age of 40 after a valiant battle, leaving behind her heartbroken husband, parents, family, friends and batchmates. You were gone too soon Di!! A promising life cut brutally short, you will always be remembered by your many patients whose lives you touched and brought joy and by those fortunate to have known and loved you.
Dr. Imon Paul
