1 in stock


A little boy growing up in Calcutta (now Kolkata) is brilliant in mathematics. In school, he is forever remembered as the only student to ever score 110 out of 100 in maths! The boy, Satyendranath Bose, would go on to propose theories that would change the field of physics forever.

In 1924, Satyendranath Bose wrote a scientific paper that impressed the most famous scientist in the world—Albert Einstein. This paper was translated by Einstein into German and published for the world to read. Satyendranath Bose’s findings were ground-breaking in the statistical foundations of quantum mechanics. He carried out statistical calculations for the kind of particles that were named after him—the boson. Einstein extended his work and predicted the lowest energy state, called the Bose-Einstein Condensate. It was experimentally achieved in the twentieth century, seventy years later!

This is the story of an astonishing mind that loved to learn, whether it was science, literature, or music. It is also about a man who was admired by the greatest scientists of all time. Satyendranth Bose’s findings in the area of physics made him immortal. This is his amazing story.
