New Delhi, Dec 1: In an interesting revelation, A study has divulged that superstar Amitabh Bachchan, considered a son-in-law of Bengal as he married a Bengali Jaya Bhaduri, may have a far deep connection to Bengal than he ever wondered.

And when the voters of Uttar Pradesh voted for Subhas Chandra Bose in the contest to be re-elected president of the Indian National Congress in 1939, they had no idea they were possibly rooting for one of their own.

The new interdisciplinary study has shown that the three men may all be descended from the same family hundreds of years ago. It re-explores the legend of five kulin Kayasthas migrating from Kannauj in northern India to Bengal, allegedly accompanying five Brahmins, a thousand or more years ago, as depicted in historical and genealogical works.

The five kulin Kayastha lineages in Bengal, which according to legend are descended from the Kayasthas who accompanied the five Brahmins from Kannauj, are Bose, Ghosh, Mitra, Datta, and Guha. The study combines a reappraisal of historical and genealogical works with a genetic analysis of a small group of individuals belonging to present-day Bengali kulin Kayastha families.

If the Boses of Bengal and the Srivastavas of UP were originally the same family, it would make Bachchan, ex-PM Shastri and Subhas Chandra Bose distant relatives of each other.
