Dr.J.C.BOSE

Introduction

The great biologist, who showed those plants, too can feel in their own way. He saved money:he bought a small laboratory and built his equipment; and scientists in Europe and America wondered at his discoveries. A true patriot and a great man.

Dr.J.C.BOSE

Suppose there is a lush green plant and its leaves are a sparkling green in the shining sunlight. We feel like pulling out a leaf to feel it. But we do not think of what goes on inside the plant. May be, we feel that the plant does not suffer like us. But the plant does suffer. In fact the pulsation of the plant stops where the leaf was plucked. In a short time the pulsation again begins at the spot, but this time very slowly. And then it completely stops. That spot is as good as dead for the plant.

It was Jagadishchandra Bose, an eminent Indian scientist, who explained that plants also suffer pain like us. Though he wored in other fields of science, he is best know for his research into the life of plants.
