J C Bose Part- 02 (E)

This concluding part of the video opens with a recap of part one and then establishes the shifting of interest of Acharya Jagadish Chandra Bose from electromagnetic waves to physics of life and the circumstances leading to this decision. The film traces his experiments based on his believe that the meeting point between the physical, inorganic world and the world of the living was to be found in the action of electromagnetic waves. The manner of working of the delicate and accurate instruments he built in order to test his ideas about response phenomena in plants are also shown. The programme closes on the promise that interdisciplinary research holds.
