Death of a blogger

"Though lovers be lost love shall not; And death shall have no dominion"
Mithila Talukdar was a 18 year old girl from Sylhet, Bangladesh. She had a grave disease and was flown to New York to her brother last month. She had a new love who wanted to be with her but was refused US Visa. She was a blogger and blogged (in Bengali) about her life, her love and her despair. She wrote this poem a few days ago before going to hospital:

"On any beautiful morning
If you hear the news of my death
Then please do not mourn
Please do not shed tears
Look for me
Inside your heart
Where love is stored
I will be there."

She wished to come back to Bangladesh, to her love later this month after being cured.

On this beautiful morning came the news of her death. The Bangla blogosphere is mourning today. Mithila will be alive in the hearts of her fellow bloggers.
