Unhappy Re: Mystery: Why Bengal abruptly stopped producing scientists in 1947-50s?

Or could it be due to exodus of Anglo-Indian genes? Many Anglo-Indians left India in the wake of independence. I presume Bengal had a high populace of Anglo-Indians. Did the above mentioned so-called Bengali scientists have Anglo-Indian background? A certain Briton invented ATM but even Western sources mention him as Indian merely because he was born in India.

The whole country has produced and created chhote-mote scientists, it's not like that, all the scientists were born there, only !

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Indian_scientists

C. V. Raman, Vikram sarabhai, Homi Bhabha, Abdul Kalaam, Ramanujan, amar gupta, and many others were not Bengali...

Nandita das had open-nip scenes in the movie Fire, and also in one hollywood movie ( In the rain? ) she had sex scenes, rest she is worth forgetting, to ugly to glance. Other one Nandana sen had also bare-breast scenes with nip exposures in " rang-rasiya" and besides that she also holds no importance for any acting part to have remembered...

Why haven't we heard of such talent since 1947?

Why Bengal abruptly stopped producing scientists in 1947-50s? Is there any politics involved? Are they (Bengal's geniuses) being killed? I think a massive search, hunt down and physical elimination campaign was started in 1950s/1960s.

Change in environment cannot be blamed. Probably what came into picture is actual intention to snuff out their lives before anyone noticed them.

Or could it be due to exodus of Anglo-Indian genes? Many Anglo-Indians left India in the wake of independence. I presume Bengal had a high populace of Anglo-Indians. Did the above mentioned so-called Bengali scientists have Anglo-Indian background? A certain Briton invented ATM but even Western sources mention him as Indian merely because he was born in India.

Meaning: Russian tourists may not come to India due to earthquake. If it happens, the woman’s womb will be barren. Meaning: If it happens, Indian civilization may not develop further.

Did you know? West tried to disturb India-Russia relationship but failed. But earthquake can do what West failed to accomplish.

Regarding the claims of J C Bose being true inventor of radio:

When I first heard/read about this claim of Bose being true inventor of radio I took it at face value. But I am having second thoughts due to following considerations.
  • Those days there were fierce rivalries among Western nations. Remember Anglo-US independence war, American civil war, world wars etc. So could it be that Americans snatched the credit from an Italian and gave it to an Indian?
  • There are quite many instances of unabashed and shameless plagiarism by Bengalis. Bappi Lahiri is a shining example.

You answer your original question. Before 1947, Bengalis were copying inventions. After 47, they started copying music.

Ussey bhi jyaada zaroori. Infact the primary essential information:

Bengal's susceptibility to earthquakes and/or proximity to earthquake prone regions.
