However, Bose opposed this discrimination and worked without pay for 3 years, due to which his financial condition deteriorated but in the fourth year Jagadish Chandra Bose won and he was given full salary. He made many discoveries with the discovery of radio, research on plants, study of metal fatigue and reaction of cells etc.

Jagadish Chandra Bose was awarded the title of ” Knight ” in 1917. Soon he was elected Fellow of the ‘Royal Society London’ for Physics and Biology. Bose did not do his entire research work with any good (expensive) equipment and laboratory, so Jagadish Chandra Bose was thinking of making a good laboratory. The ‘Bose Institute’ (Bose Bigyan Mandir) is inspired by this idea, which is a famous centre of the nation for research work in science. Jagadish Chandra Bose, the great scientist who made his important contribution in the field of science, breathed his last in Giridih on 23 November 1937 at the age of 78.
