The puzzle teaches us that big guns and heavy artilery are not always the best option to play, and a smart infantry move can do miracles.

1.Ng3+ Kf4 2.Rf7+ Bf6 3.Rxf6+ gxf6 4.Rxf6#
Thanks, Naziri, for posting that line. I was unable to see the 1. g4+ solution; 1. Ng3 was my first choice for the opening move. I'm quite sure I would have followed with 2. Rf7+ (I was sort of oblivious to the lurking bishop and would have been surprised by 2. ... Bf6, but I think I would have seen my way through it to 4. Rxf6#)
u r welcome "dufferps"
I m glad to help u.
