Jagdish Chandra Bose

Acharya Jagdish Chandra Bose, was a Bengali mathematician, physicist, biologist, biophysicist, botanist and an archaeologist altogether. Such brilliance in a single mind is rare to find. He was born during the British Raj in Munshiganj (present day Bangladesh) on November 30, 1858. He was sent to a regional school to know the mother tongue before he could get his hands on any of the books written in English.

His accomplishments are way beyond imagination and so diverse that one cannot simply cover the dynamics of his research papers. During his lifetime, he pioneered his way up to the top by giving significant contributions in the following areas of research.

  • Investigation of radio and microwave optics
  • Study of plant science
  • Invention of the Crescograph (device for measuring growth in plants)
  • Author of the book- Niruddesher Kahini

Leading to his enormous contribution in bio and physical science, a crater on the Moon has been named after him called “Bose”.
