Sir J.C. Bose

India: Discoverer of Life in Plants

Birth :1855        Death : 1937

The momentous discovery that plants, like other living beings, also throb with life was made by the renowed Indian scientist, Sir Jagdish Chandra Bose. The world was greatly surprised to hear about this new and wholly unexpected discovery of Bose. With the help of various scientific instruments, invented by Bose himself, he demonstrated that plants too live, drink, sleep and breathe as all other living beings.

Though Bose’s fame rests mainly on his above discovery, yet, he also made another and very important discovery—the discovery of wire-less telegraphy. True, that around the same time the Italian scientist, Marconi, was also conducting experiments on transmission of radio signals, but for this purpose he used ‘long electric waves’. While Bose discovered and used ‘short waves’ which later came to be commonly used in ‘Radar’ and ‘Television’ etc. Bose was nominated to represent India at the International Science Congress held in Paris in 1900. At the Congress, Bose expounded his scientific theories and the world scientists were astonished at his amazing talent. The London University conferred ‘Doctor of Science’ (D.Sc.) on Bose in 1896. The Calcutta University also conferred D.Sc. on Bose in 1917. The British government of India honoured Bose by conferring on him the title of ‘Sir’. In 1920, he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of London.

Jagdish Chandra Bose was born on 30th November 1858, in an east Bengal village. His father was a doctor. He was sent to Calcutta where he took admission in St. Xavier College after completing early education. He was appointed a Professor in Physics in Calcutta’s Presidency College on his return to India. In 1923, Bose founded the Bose Research Institute in Calcutta. Bose died of heart attack on 23rd November, 1937.
