Bose’s works contributed to many concepts such as statistical mechanics, the electromagnetic properties of the ionosphere, the theories of X-ray crystallography and thermolum inescence, and unified field theory. His work also led Einstein to seek him out to work alongside him.
Bose was interested in many subjects including physics, mathematics, chemistry, biology, mineralogy, philosophy, arts, literature and music. He worked on many research and development projects for India. he was also interested in classical music .
