The Indian founders of the BNHS have never been given enough attention - and it would appear that there was trouble among the Indians during this founding phase. The issues probably revolved around (later Dr) Rukhmabai, the step-daughter of Sakharam Arjun, and her court-case which caused a major social upheaval. The lack of obituaries in the Journal of the Bombay Natural History Society on both the Indian founders is suggestive of an ideology clash with Lt-Col. K.R. Kirtikar, the only other Indian member who could have written their obituaries! (Reading between the lines while sprucing up entries on them in the English Wikipedia - Inviting comments from those with access to better sources at the BNHS)
