Subject: An Extraordinary Genius From Indian Soil, The World Knew. Few Indians Knew But Now?
The person we are referring to is none other than Acharya Dr. Satyendra Nath Bose (b. January 1, 1894—D. February 4, 1974, Calcutta), a rare scientific genius of Indian origin. Eminent scientists of his times, including people like Laue, Einstein, Ato Haun, Sraydinger, Plank, Lease Mittner, Brogley and others used to listen to his lectures with respect.
Once when Satyen’s mother, seeing him destroying useful papers, and tearing off pages from books, rebuked him, he almost casually answered, “Mother, I have read them, I remember what was in these papers, and so I do not need these papers any more”. Such indeed was his phenomenal memory. It used to happen with his research also. Once he had solved a very difficult problem, he did not have any more interest in the matter like sending the papers to science journals, etc.
Once Dr. Meghnad Saha, another scientific giant of his time, spoke of an extremely difficult equation, underlining that nobody in the world had yet found a solution to that. Dr. Bose took note of the equation and gave Dr. Meghnath the solution in 2-3 day’s time. incidentally, His academic records in Calcutta University still remain unbroken in the 133 years of its existence.
A rare genius in the scientific world, Bose was an equally great humanitarian, examples of which galore. It is said he truly justified Vivekananda’s philosophy of service to man is the greatest form religion.
Acknowledging his rare talents, who was truly an Acharya, Albert Einstein paid the best compliments to Dr. Satyendranath: “Asti Kasti Samaan Dharma”.
Well, Friends, we are sure we can count the numbers people in India having even heard of Dr. Satyen Bose. This country has produced a world-class genius, whom, we felt, the nation ought to know. We considered it to be a privilege to contribute a little in that direction.
