Babu say's he was very intelligent and intellectual... he knew him most of his life.. he said when he was little he used to sit on his knee all the time and would say I think I am to heavy for you and it became the joke... When Babu's father was a child now almost 80 years old it was Sitaram Das Omkarnath that suggested he sing on the trains to make money as he was the eldest and Nabani was gone all the time.... also Babu's dad lead Kirtan for him for a couple of years until Nabani came back and dragged him away... Nabani Das Baul and Sitaram Das were great friends... but Nabani was always an invisible wandering Sadhu... Lots of history that has never been heard of before..
"Listen. My Name is your support in the journey of life. Sing the Name. Today you are alive, but you will not be alive forever. A day will come when your senses will cease to function and life will leave corporeal frame, and the mortal remains will be either devoured by jackals or burnt to ashes. If you do not obtain the means of support for the journey, then you are doomed. From this moment - sing the Name, let your whole system utter the words 'Rama Rama' and 'Hari Hari'. This is the best means of leading you to the right path of life. Your wealth, your wife and children will not go with you. While there is still time, sing the Name and obtain what is most worth your while in life. Don't follow too many paths to the higher life, better stick to one - the singing of the Name - this will be the best of your attainments. You need not be proficient in all the scriptures".
