Learning Bangladeshi language somewhere triggered the hidden spark in him which eventually helped him becoming a champ/master in his field.

Bose at Bikrampur in 1915 once said that he had great impact of local stories of birds, animals and other creatures on his life style (work basically). As per him those stories that he heard of during his childhood has developed the required interest that has helped him researching and researching more towards these species.

Bose's father was a dynamic person who has always encouraged Bose to become a scholar and master in his art. Although he did not belong to a rich family but his father has always encouraged him with acquiring knowledge. At young age of 18, Bose left Bangladesh and went to Christ's College Cambridge to study natural science.

He had to face racial discrimination while he was in Kolkata (Calcutta). However it made him more strong (much easy to say now) towards revealing his dream and passion. Very often he was not allowed to use various labs, instruments. He carried various experiments in his 24 sq feet room itself. Hats off to such great man!

Bose is mainly known for his contributions towards botany. But very few will know about the fact that he has done tremendous work towards building modern radio and sonic technology. By seeing his contributions toward radio science, he was coveted as “father of radio science” by Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers.
