Sir U. N. Brahmachari: A Forgotten Scientist
Abstract: This article pays tribute to the forgotten genius of Indian Science, Dr. Upendra Nath Brahmachari, on his 150th birth anniversary. Despite saving countless lives by inventing a revolutionary medicine for kala - azar, he was denied the Nobel Prize and remained unrecognized by both the government and the public. Dr. Brahmachari?s contributions extended beyond kala - azar to various fields, including his establishment of India?s first blood bank and groundbreaking work in diseases such as Malaria and Diabetes. This abstract also highlights the decline in kala - azar cases in recent years while emphasizing the importance of monitoring environmental factors and climate change to ensure safety of human lives.
