Minakshi, known as Mia to her loved ones, is survived by her son Partha, husband Hemanga, and our large extended family to whom she was truly devoted. She was a pillar of strength in our family and always managed to bring everyone together. There was no greater joy to her than spending time with her family and friends. She was full of love and kindness, made great jokes, and always enjoyed a good laugh. Indian sweets were her all time favorite, Berhampore channaborras and roshgollas held a special place in her heart. She was also a lover of the arts; she was an amazing painter, singer and writer.
