If there is any Indian scientist whose name would without fail appear in any text-book on modern physics, it would be of S.N. Bose. 'Bosons' are the elementary particles, such as photons, named after him. More than half the particles in the universe are Bosons!
Although Bose made theoretical contributions to modern physics by a stroke of genius, he strove hard throughout his life to create a favourable environment for pursuance of the much needed experimental physics in the country. He also took pains to bring science to the masses in their own language. A connoisseur of music and literature, Bose was himself an excellent Esraj player:
