Prof. K. Bhattacharya was present at the Vedic Workshop held in Calicut/Kozhikode in last January.
He very kindly told me a few things about Paul-Emile Dumont (1879-1968) whom he once met (in Paris, 1963) and who was, like him, a long-living scholar as great as modest.

> Dear colleagues,
> The passing of Prof. Kamaleswar Bhattacharya is indeed sad news. I had the privilege of studying with Prof. Bhattacharya when he was a visitor at the University of Toronto many years ago. My own work has greatly benefited from his careful and broad ranging scholarship. Over the years, I enjoyed many a conversation with him on a variety of matters, especially his work on Nagarjuna. Most recently, I had an opportunity to spend some time with him during a visit to Paris for a seminar organized by Peter Scharf, which he also attended. Prof. Bhattacharya was a first rate scholar, in my view, and his passing will be a loss to the Sanskrit scholarly community.
