Researching the two biographical sources it becomes apparent that Ananta Lal Gosh, known as Barda, was born in Rangoon, Burma, then a province of India, in about 1885, as he died in 1916 aged 31, when his younger brother Mukunda Lal Gosh, then a Swami was in Shanghai returning from a sea journey to Japan. Ananta was the first born child of Bhagabati and Gyana and therefore the eldest son, who became largely responsible for the three youngest siblings when their mother died in 1904, and their father had to keep working. The eldest daughter Roma Shashi (Tuni & Bardi), who was very spiritual, had married Sri Satish Chandra Bose of Calcutta in about 1903, who was an atheist like his father Dr Keshab Chandra Bose, but through the help of Mejda came to see the Light. Before she died, Bardi had forseen the moment of her passing, even predicting it to Medja in 1936, 18 months before the event. Satish followed soon after her. The second eldest sister, Umi Shashi ('Muni' & Mejdi) married Sri Satya Charan Basu Mullick and had 3 sons and 1 daughter. She too had married before her mother died. Sadly, Gyana was making preparations for Ananta's wedding in Calcutta when she died in 1904, so it was postponed to a later date. On 17 August 1908, Barda passed the examination for accountancy and became one for the Public Works Department being first sent to Meerut, in Uttar Pradesh, not far from Delhi. In 1909 he was transferred to Gorakhpur, his last posting where he died in 1916. He had a son and a daughter.
