Bose’s repugnance at the overture made by the billionaire, “who to make further profit, came to me like a beggar”, was undisguised. “If only Tagore would witness the country’s (England’s) greed for money”, he wrote in disgust. “What a dreadful all-consuming disease it was”. The objectives of Bose and Marconi were obviously entirely different. Bose was not particularly interested in the engineering of wireless transmission. Being a physicist, his objective was to study Microwave Optics and its properties, with the ultimate objective to verify Maxwell’s electromagnetic wave equations.

After the early death of her Guru, Swami Vivekananda (1902), Nivedita had more time for Bose. It has been mentioned earlier in the chapter that b Jagadish had been afflicted by some problem and apparently collapsed after an exhaustive lecture.
