Dr. Satyendra Nath Bose devised a statistical theory of counting photons – a revelation even to Albert Einstein — that paved the way for the two great minds to work in tandem in formulating fundamental theories as the Bose-Einstein Statistics and Bose-Einstein Condensate. Boson, the class of particles that obey Bose-Einstein statistics, was named after Dr. S. N. Bose. Sir C. V. Raman gave the world what is known as the Raman effect, which redefined how we see light and colour. Another contemporary, Dr. Meghnad Saha produced an equation that explained stellar radiation and is regarded as one of the fathers of modern astrophysics. All the three scientists started their careers at the Calcutta University, became Fellows of the Royal Society, and Raman was the first and only Indian to be awarded the Nobel Prize for physics.
The film is a tribute to the three exemplary minds, the significance of whose contributions was of vital importance during that time, and even today with great strides being made in quantum physics, fibre optics, nuclear science or astrophysics. They were not only great scientists, but were rooted to the social and political realities of the time and dedicated their lives to modern science in India. Along with being institutions by themselves, they built stellar institutions in the country that inspired many great scientists of the following generations.
Presently working as Professor in Electronic Science Department of Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra, Haryana, India. Hails from a small village (Pandanadu in Alapuzha distt) of Kerala state in India. Love to read. Great passion for knowing things for its sake. Passionate about Khalil Gibran and his works especially "The Prophet". Great admirer of the works of James Randi, Prof. Richard Dawkins & Dr. Neil Tyson. Wish to start a lecture series like the Royal society Christmas Lectures (started by Michael Faraday in 1825). You can contact him via email.
