Satyen Bose in Berlin - Dr. Purnima Sinha
Not much is known about Bose's two-year stay in Europe in 1925-6. Dr. Purnima Sinha, a student and biographer of Bose, has written many articles and books on Bose. In Satyen Bose in Berlin, Dr. Sinha interviews those what knew Bose and spent time with him in Europe. What transpires is a fascinating portrait of a man whose keen intellect, engaging personality, and unique blend of European and Indian culture won him many friends and admirers, including some of the leading intellectual and scientific figures of the day. Dr. Sinha interviewed one such famous scientist, Professor Herman Mark, the internationally renowned chemist who first met Bose in Berlin in 1926. Mark and Bose became very close. Their 50-year friendship lasted the rest of their lives.
Herman Mark: Oh!
He was very friendly. He was a real gentleman. And he would tell his
jokes to everybody and had excellent sense of humour. Ah! Wonderful! He
was very benevolent! He could only do good things! We always called him
our Buddha (laughter).
Falguni Sarkar, publisher of the S N Bose Project, was recently for Banga Sammelan - the 27th North American Bengali Conference (NABC 2007). The interview appeared in the English language brochure.
"We want people, especially young people, to know more about Satyen Bose. It is their own history, and can be a strong source of identity for them!"
