He belongs to 16 th generation in the Family Tree .He is a poet with many publications.He now stays at Mumbai with his family.His son Shyamashis has launched a foundation named "Ramanath Foundation" for research study on literary activities including life and works of Padmanath Saraswati and Ramnath Biswas who are the illustrious sons of Baniachang. Padmanath Saraswati belongs to 15 th and Ramnath Biswas 16 th generation in the Family Tree.
