Medical research-Pioneer of IVF technique Death of Legend
Arab news-LE-13th Sep 201l L.E.

Prof. Sir Robert Edwards who passed away this week will always be remembered worldwide for his pioneering work on in vitro fertilization (IVF) technique, which helped couples with fertility problems to have a baby. His groundbreaking research of IVF technique gave birth to Louise Brown — the world’s first test tube baby — in 1978.For all those couples who had lost all hopes to start a family, Prof Edward’s path-breaking and painstaking research along with his colleague Patrick Steptoe, brought happiness and joy to millions of families all over the world. Today IVF treatment is used worldwide and has successfully resulted in more than five million babies.
Prof. Edwards won the Nobel Prize for physiology or medicine in 2010. A year later, he was knighted for “services to human reproductive biology.” Prof. Edwards always was motivated by his belief, which he once described it, “the most important thing in life is having a child.”
Mankind will always remember this visionary scientist. His death is a great loss to all of us. We all hope that his legacy will live on with all the IVF work being carried out throughout the world and which will be further improved.

SN Bose, the unsung scientist
DNA INDIA 8 July 2012-L.E.

Only a small section of the Indian media has recognized the contribution made by legendary Indian scientist SIN Bose regarding discovery of God particle. This discovery is considered revolutionary in human history and a victory regarding fundamental knowledge of the universe.

Today, the world is celebrating this ‘discovery at CERN at Geneva, but the contribution of Bose is not getting its due. This, even as no scientist denies his contribution towards developing modern physics. In fact, there is consensus among modern physicists that much of the work they do is derived from Bose's stellar achievement.

In a true sense, no national international award is greater than recognition by one's peers.

DNA India 14 November 2011-L.E.

With the demise of India-born scientist and Nobel laureate, Har Gobind Khorana, an era has come to end in the world of science. He was born in undivided India (in the region that is now in Pakistan) and in a lower-middle class rural family. He went on to become an icon of scientific community. His contribution changed the course of biotechnology with his pioneer work in DNA chemistry, for which he won the Nobel prize in 1968 along with two other scientists. He was also MIT's Alfred P Sloan professor of biotechnology and chemistry emeritus. Even when immersed in research, he was keenly interested in mentoring young minds.

We all hope that the path-breaking work done by the legendary scientist in revolutionizing biotechnology will continue to inspire new generation of scientists.

AMAR BOSE
The Statesman-18 July 2013-LE

SIR, The death of Dr Amar Bose, the pioneer of acoustics and chairman of the audio-tech company, Bose Corporation, USA, is an irreparable loss. To him we owe the high-quality audio system speakers for the home, the auditorium, and the cars that bear his name. He had a sharp intellect and was known for his humility. The world has lost a great leader in the field of technology.

Dr Bose had founded Bose Corp almost 50 years back with a set of guiding principles centred around his research and innovations at MIT. Though he was a successful and innovative businessman, his first love was research and teaching. He was on the faculty of MIT.

He was relentlessly focused on acoustic innovation. Though his audio system was expensive, he earned great reputation for the high quality audio system. In 1968, he developed the “Bose 901 direct /reflecting speaker system”, which became the best-seller in the market for more than 25 years. His other inventions included the “Bose wave radio” and the headphones used by frequent fliers. The equipment could reduce the noise level and was adopted by the US military and commercial pilots. He won several awards and was a Fulbright post-doctoral scholar.

Amar Bose’s father was a freedom-fighter who left India for the USA to escape persecution and imprisonment by the British. He leaves behind a profound stamp on technology. He has shown the world how research in technology and science can help us to listen.
