Today is birthday of noted Indian Scientist Satyendra Nath Bose (01.01.1894). A student of Jagdish Chandra Bose, he went on to work closely with Albert Einstein & Marie Curie. Albert Einstein translated some of his articles in German & published. Bose-Einstein Statistics & Bose-Einstein Condensate are pathbreaking Quantum theories, which paved way for discovery of "God Particle" in 2012. Sub-atomic particle Boson was named after SN Bose.
Today many scientists seem amused at the way the discovery of the Higgs Boson which has triggered the discussion about Bose’s role in discovering Boson.  The name and fame of S N Bose will live on in the annals of science ever.
