Once during the Master’s visit to the theatre to attend a performance of “Nimai Sannyasa”, Girishchandra, in a drunken state, prayed to him that he be born as Girish’s son so that he may serve the Master to his heart’s content. When the Master refused, Girish abused him in filthy language, and Devendranath Mazumdar stopped an enraged Latu from attacking him. The Master, however, forgave him. Within a year of the Master’s demise his second wife gave birth to a son and died a year later. Girish, believing the child to be the Master, reared him not only with great care but also deference. He took the 3-year old child to the Holy Mother then residing in a rented house in Baranagore (1890) where the child, impatient to see her, climbed upstairs alone and prostrated at her feet. He then went down and dragged Girish to the Holy Mother and, in tears, Girish fell at her feet. The boy died after some days. Earlier, the child, suffering from a liver ailment had once been given up for dead. Girish had been weeping inconsolably when Swamiji had arrived and, moved by Girish’s grief, spent some time in the dead child’s room with all windows and doors shut. When he left the room the child had revived. A year later the child being again critically ill, in the absence of Swamiji, Girish appealed to the Swamis Saradananda and Niranjanananda to save him but they being powerless to do so the child eventually died. Grief-stricken, for some time Girish gave up the theatre. Visited Kamarpukur, Jayrambati and Varanasi, devoting himself to spiritual practices. Upon his return from Varanasi resumed his association with the theatre which lasted till the last days of his life. It is said that upon the request of Girish, Swamiji had initiated the child into sannyasa before he died (Swami Vivekanander Jibaner Ghatanabali).
