Probably this community has got such great brains because of 'interbreeding' with Mongols who are in the vicinity.

Mongol brain takes less Oxygen but makes optimum use of it.

The Indian brain takes more oxygen but doesn't make optimal use of it.

Perhaps when there is cross between the two genes, it creates the best of both worlds. More Oxygen to brain and also optimal use of it.

Many of the renowned Bengali scientists have Mongoloid facial features. It corroborates this theory.

Pure mad theories.

It is simple, West Bengal failed because of Communism just like Kerala.

Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Get over it.

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.
Could it be because most of the scientists during those days came from what is now Bangladesh and Bengal lost that region in 1947? This theory sounds most plausible and logical.

And how many scientists do you find from Bangladesh.

BTW, one Nobel Laureate S ChandraShekaran was born in Lahore. Do some Websites claim he is a Pakistani.

Bose seems to be the most illustrious Desi surname.

Subhash Chandra Bose
Jagadish Chandra Bose
SN Bose (boson and Bose higgin particle fame)
Amarnath Bose ( Speakers fame)

There may be more but can't recall.

Most probably the reason is that in 1947 Bengal lost the region now known as Bangladesh. Atleast 4 of the 6 scientists you mentioned were born in that region!

Wow... this theory does explain a lot. Peaceful religion destroyed the brains on that side... and communism did the same this side. End result... 0 scientists in a fertile land

A shocking reminder (Not any new revelation): The grass seems greener on the other pasture. So be happy with whatever you have.

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

The British first set up shop in Bengal------the locals were timid (hence easy to 'utilise'), ships could move around quite easily, and the hinterland was very very fertile (so, more produce to 'trade in'.)
They needed to 'anglicize/westernize' the locals for smooth functioning of their administration;so, they set up europeon style education institutes in that region ----The locals got modern education etc.. on a platter!------at a time when Europe was getting transmogrified because of the industrial revolution.
The concept of scientific curiosity took a new turn and the locals got a chance to be amongst the 'pioneers'. And, in such circumstances, the observations and curiosity more than make up for the lack of sophisticated equipment------ in fact, serendipty was a very important element in most of the discoveries and inventions of that era: Faraday's 'experiments' and the evolution of a/c., pasteurization, penecillin, etc..
It does not in any way dilute the phenomenal contributions of our scientists in physics, chemistry etc.., but today, such 'chance' discoveries are very very difficult!

Just as you can judge whether rice is properly cooked by picking out one small grain, so you can know an entire nation by observing one of its handpicked youths. If the son of a person of the stature of an RBI officer can be so bad and loathsome, imagine how the rest of the lot would be. Ugh!
