It is unfortunate that S.N. Bose who first put forward the idea of particles giving mass to matter a century ago has not been remembered by the world (“‘God particle’ theorists get Nobel Prize in physics,” Oct.9).

The scientists who went forward from the prototype of his theory have won the Nobel. Satyendranath Bose should be remembered by his homeland.

The government needs to recognise his efforts, though posthumously.
