Bandyopadhyay, Subhankar

June 26, 1959 – February 9, 2018

Story from the Quilt:

Subhankar means ‘one who does good’ and somehow or the other my husband, Subhankar, lived his name throughout his life. He was my acquaintance of 48 years, my closest friend of 40 years, my husband of 35 years. We were each other’s first and only crushes, first and only overs, first and only loves. This quilt square is inspired by a short poem by the Bengali Poet Rabindranath Tagore; it is to me the personification of love.

“You being you, pet, that’s the debt. Love is the way I pay each day __ with interest”
