Know your family members@Lounge - Tan

TAN
To my TWL family

Hello Mates,
Apologies for the late response! I am not well today – running high on fever and I am still sitting in the office since 8 PM! (Remember something – my old passion :P ) I will go home in some time now.

Well, I am Tanmoy Das a.k.a. Tan, Babie, Buchan, Baptu, Nantu, Mani, Laxman, Bapi, Bablie, Manikanchan, Kutul, Akaash, Tanu, Tannie, Dada (to many) and sTd (to a very few)… and so on!

I hail from Agartala, Tripura – a state in the North Eastern part of India. I am here in TWL since December 9, 2008 through the Rain Drenched Lounge Contest. I won the readers’ choice award for my first ever post in TWL. Isn’t it great?

I am a Bengali.

I have a few degrees which are not much in use these days as I work in Hewlett Packard, Bangalore. I was in Arunachal Pradesh for 6 years, doing my graduation and since 2004, I am here in Bangalore.

I am married to the most beautiful woman in the world. She defines and gives me shape, size, volume… All I have gained in my life is her love and that’s all I have at present.

Hmmm… my blogs? There are a few to detail:

My first blog,
Thus Spake Tan! is going to celebrate its second birthday on May 22, 2009. I have seen a few of you there at times. Those who visit it tells me that the blog is well established. I write all sense there – mostly. There will be a small celebration on it on the 22nd and I invite you all to be there.

My Bengali blog,
Hojoborolo is where I write in Bengali. I would ask all the people here who knows how to read Bangla to visit the same and read whatever I have written. I am a Bengali Writer and hence, all my best works are in that language.

My creative blog,
Thus Wrote Tan! is where I write in Hindi and English – stories, songs, poems etc. This is the most famous blog I own. Many of the mates in TWL know it; but then a few really like it and visit frequently.

I am member of a few other group blogs too, like Mission Jagruti, Somewhere in Blog… and The Writers Lounge.

In the last 5 months in TWL, I have earned a few friends. Well, friendship here is all virtual. I like to call them friends as I remember them at times, when I am on and off the TWL. Just that! Rashi, Pratibha, Vinay, Stephen, Sandeep, Insiya, Kajal, Illashree, Hashan, Chirag and now Sonshu are a few with whom I have spent long time in the Lounge – writing together, chatting together and learning together. Remember mates, the TWL and YOU all writing here are always in my mind – I really think of you and at times, I wish to be with you all.

The time I spend in TWL helps me learn and lets me improve. The fact is I have started writing more frequently after joining TWL. You can easily check the number of posts per month before and after Dec last year in my blogs. I enjoy the time I spend here. More so – while learning so much.

I do not remember how I came to the lounge – most probably through someone else’s profile. Whatever it is, I am happy that I clicked on the links and profiles that day and see where I am now. Thanks for inviting me. Thanks for making me a part of the family. You mates are really good writers and I wish you all the best in everything you do.

Cheers!
