This book is a biographical sketch of physicist, inventor, pioneer and visionary, Jagdish Chandra Bose, who was the first modern scientist of India.
In the late nineteenth century it was hard to believe that an Indian could become a scientist. Working in primitive conditions, without any financial help and constantly battling the skepticism of the scientific establishment, Jagdish Chandra Bose invented the first instruments of wireless telegraphy - the technology that is the basis of all communication today.
He astonished European scientists with his inventions and traveled across the world winning laurels for his achievements. He also engaged in the exploration of physics and biology, a field that is known today as biophysics, seeking the basic unity of life. The renowned Bose Institute in Calcutta, a temple of scientific research, was set up by him.
