Tanmoy Bhattacharyas (তন্ময় ভট্টাচার্য্য) of the world!

This page arose out of the common confusion between me and someone who shares both his first and last name with me. That Tanmoy Bhattacharya has the email addresses tb3@soas.ac.uk, tanmoy@linguistics.du.ac.in, uclytbh@ucl.ac.uk, t.bhattacharya@ucl.ac.uk, bhattach@rz.uni-leipzig.de, bhamoy@hotmail.com, and bhattach2000@yahoo.co.uk is a linguist who has something to do with SALON, was at University College in London, then in Leipzig, and is now back at Delhi University (tanmoy@du.ac.in). He also used to write poetry, but none of his webpages at UCL work any more. Though I too am a Bengali who spent some time of my childhood in southern New Delhi and graduated from high scool at roughly the same time, the characters stated above ought to distinguish him from me very easily. And, here is a photo of me in case you meet me on the street. Also, my last name arose out of an academic/occupational title (see here), so all the various people mentioned on this page need not be related by recent genealogical ties.

The Kolkata telephone directory lists a number of Tanmoy Bhattacharya's: one each at Baranagar-700036, Sahapur-700038, Motijheel-700074, Santoshpur-700075, Bagha Jatin-700086, Lake Town-700089, Nawapara-700090, Ghola Bazar-700111, Khardah-700117, Noapara-700125, Madhyamgram-700129, Dakshin Jagatdal-700151, Tribeni-712503, and Kankinara-743126.

There is also a feminine form of the name listed: a Tanmayee Bhattacharjee lives at Rabindra Nagar-700065. A Tanmoy Bhattacharya (or Bhattacharyya) lives in Dewanji Bagan (22°52'45"N 88°23'17"E near Chandannagore), and one in Netaji Colony in Baranagore (22°38'9"N 88°22'59"E), may be one of the two above in the telephone directory. One of these Tanmoy Bhattacharya's probably has the email "tanmoybhat@hotmail.com.

I am also identical to tanmoy@mailaps.org (only work related e-mail please), tanmoy@mindspring.com (preferred address otherwise), nooneatnowhere@earthlink.net, and all the tanmoy@*.tifr.*, tanmoy@*.bnl.gov, tanmoy@*.cea.fr, tanmoy@*.lanl.gov, tanmoy@*.santafe.edu, tanmoy.bhattacharya@*.northwestern.edu that I am aware of belong or belonged to me. My 10 digit cell phone number at vtext.com can handle extremely small (definitely much less than 200 characters) text messages to forward them to my cell phone (and vice-versa) if it is switched on somewhere right, and the same at vzwpix.com works the same way for small pictures and videos. tanmoy@mylaptop.com also used to belong to me, and I used to forward it to wherever I was reading mail from. Unfortunately, that address went belly-up, so I have to get another forwarding address now!

My father tells me he has seen the name in the credits after some Indian TV program, but could not remember any other detail. Except for a brief mention on All India Radio that I heard in my childhood, a Tanmoy Bhattacharjee who practices Goshin Ryu Karate in Calcutta and is a member of Hapkidonet, one who made a trek, one posted to a cricket board, and one whose profile appears on MySQL Forums: Jobs, one who was a consultant for Banking Products Division of i-flex solutions and wrote an article, may be another who is also a consultant in the computer software industry. and one arrested for driving a bus recklessly and killing a woman, a Tanmoy Bhttacharya who posted appeciatively of a customer service, one who participated in a quizzing blog, I know of no other Tanmoy Bhattacharya's. If you are or know one, please drop me a line.
