Commemorating Jagdish Chandra Bose’s 158th birth anniversary, Google has posted a doodle on its India homepage. The doodle features Bose and his invention in action.

Jagdish Chandra Bose was a master of scientific achievement with numerous accomplishments in various fields.

Born in Bangladesh in 1858, Bose was known not only for his work in biophysics, but also for his innovation in the world of radio and microwave sciences, ultimately inventing an early version of wireless telecommunication.

As a testament to his numerous contributions to the field, a moon crater was named in his honor.

Bose’s investigations into nature included the invention of the crescograph -- an instrument that measures movement and growth in plants, by magnifying them 10,000 times.

Bose went on to demonstrate the similarities between animals and plants, particularly when it came to reactions to different environmental, electrical, and chemical influences.

He died in 1937 at the age of 79.
