Khushal Chand Khursand, Munshi Ganesh Das and Ranbir Singh holding his elder daughter, Prabodh Bala. This was published in the Milap as a photograph that showed three fathers, two grand-fathers, a great grand-father, a great grand-daughter, a grand-daughter and a daughter. What was visible, less the writer's imagination, was just four faces, but it made history at that time and also started a trend in which four generations would henceforth get themselves photographed
