Jagadis Chandra Bose, the unsung Hero of Radio Communication

Jagadis Chandra Bose was born in India in 1858. He received his education first in India, until in 1880 he went to England to study medicine at the University of London.

Within a year he moved to Cambridge to take up a scholarship to study Natural Science at Christ’s College Cambridge. One of his lecturers at Cambridge was Professor Rayleigh, who clearly had a profound influence on his later work.

In 1884 Bose was awarded a B.A. from Cambridge, but also a B.Sc. from London University. Bose then returned to India, taking up a post initially as officiating professor of physics at the Presidency College in Calcutta. Following the example of Lord Rayleigh, Jagadis Bose made extensive use of scientific demonstrations in class; he is reported as being extraordinarily popular and effective as a teacher. Many of his students at the Presidency College were destined to become famous in their own right – for example S.N. Bose, later to become well known for the Bose-Einstein statistics.
