The founder of the Organization Late Ramchand Bysack's ancestor Late Sovaram Bysack, the icon of Bengal, was a wealthy businessman and a great philanthropist. 'He was one of the earliest settlers of Kolkata. In the year 1690A.D. when Job Charnock landed in Sutanuti, the same year Sovaram Bysack was born in Kasimbazar near Murshidabad. He belonged to a wealthy family of textile traders. His earliest known ancestor Keshob Ram earned the surname “Busakh” from the Mughal Emperor Akbar during his reign in the 16th century. One of the wealthiest business tycoons of his time, Sovaram featured in C.R. Wilson’s list of top businessmen of contemporary merchants. The success of Sovaram and the Basak family has faded with time, but the fragrance still lingers…'
'“Busakh” is a Persian word — “Bu” meaning fragrance and “sakh” meaning branch or lineage. So, one who was given this title was a source of fragrance to the Mughal clan. With the course of time, the title changed to “Bysack”.......'. (Source : https://thegangeswalk.com/category/sovaram-bysack/)
