Birthday of J C Bose

The birthday of Jagadish Chandra Bose (m. 1882) is celebrated today, and he is the subject of a Google Doodle across the US, Australia, India and France to remember his contributions and celebrate his works.

The doodle shows the legendary scientist, who was known across the world, with the crescograph - an instrument he invented to measure growth in plants, and which he used to determine environmental effects on vegetation.


(At a symposium to commemorate the 150th anniversary of his birth the bust of Sir Jagadish Chandra Bose sculpted by Biman Behari Das was unveiled, between Third Court and the Yusuf Hamied Theatre.)
