Satyendra Nath Bose was a Bengali Indian scientist who specialised in mathematical physics and lived from January 1, 1894 to February 4, 1974.
He is primarily known for his early 1920s work on quantum mechanics, which laid the groundwork for Bose-Einstein statistics and the Bose-Einstein condensate theory.
He is remembered as the boson's namesake. Despite the fact that he was not given the Nobel Prize, he received other awards for research relating to the concepts of the boson.
Bose-Einstein statistics & Bose-Einstein condensates have received Nobel Prizes in Physics, the most recent being the 2001 Nobel Prize in Physics for improving the theory of Bose-Einstein condensates
Bose was a multilingual man who could also play the Esraj (a musical instrument similar to the violin) extremely well.
Bose was born the eldest of seven children and the only boy in Kolkata (Calcutta), West Bengal, India. In the scientific community, Bose was known as S.N. Bose.
Surendranath Bose, his father, worked as an accountant in the East India Railway's Engineering Department. Surendranath had a mathematical bent and was interested in a variety of scientific fields.
He even started his own chemical and pharmaceutical business. S.N. Bose's father was interested in philosophical studies, including the Hindu classics such as the Bhagwad-gita.

Bose's theories were warmly regarded in the physics community after that, and he was granted leave from the University of Dhaka in 1924 to travel to Europe.
