I also got contacted by a Gopal Bhattacharya of a family that came
from kanauj via faridpur, then shyampur, then halisahar, and finally
settled in bhAtpArA. and whose grandfather was
Jagatdurlabh Bhattacharya, ex-editor-in-chief of Gupta Press Panjika, whose
son Shivapada Bhattacharya is founder of dInabandhu vidyAlaYa. Gopal's
father's uncle shrIjIva nyAYatIrtha (who lives a few houses south) was son
of paJcAnana tarkaratna (There are two by that name in 28 above).
Jagatdurlabh's brother-in-law was brahmamohana
bhaTTAcAryya of bindubasini road mentioned above.
