Abstract

In recent times, the work of Sir. J. C. Bose has been presented to the scientific community. This has resulted in a plethora of newspaper articles which claimed that perhaps the western scientific world of Lords Rayleigh and Kelvin which created Bose, attempted to deprive him of his Noble prize on his work on electromagnetic phenomenons which were carried out at the same time as that of Marconi. In view of this, it is perhaps worthwhile to take a critical look at Sir J. C. Boses's work on millimeter waves and appraise what the contemporary scientists thought about it. During such a review, we found many interesting issues which is the subject of this paper. There is no question that the scientific community embraced Bose as a great experimentalist. Creating accurate apparatus was his forte. However, there appears to be some serious questions lingering on his scientific work which was communicated to him by Lord Rayleigh and Sir William Crooks. The objective of this article is to review that situation.
