S.N. Bose’s experimental skill was not confined to physics alone. His energy had been channelized in several directions.  One direction in which his energy flowed more consistently than in any other was the popularization of science. In a newly independent country like India, determined to develop her industries as quickly as possible, there was every danger of leadership in scientific research falling into the hands of those whom C.P. Snow has called ‘slide-rule’ scientists. As a safeguard against this, even before independence, Bose found a scientific journal in Bengali, Binna Parichaya, to spread scientific knowledge among the common people.
