The passing away of Dr. Narayan Chandra Bose, the renowned Homoeopath of Khelat Babu Lane, Talla, at the ripe old age of 70, in the afternoon of Monday, the 12th instant last will be mourned not only by the profession but by everyone interested in the Homoeopathic Art of Healing. An erudite scholar in the immortal philosophy of Hahnemann, late Dr. Bose took the cause of the poor and the rich alike and distinguished himself to be a true and sincere friend of all.
A direct nephew of the late & lamented Dr. R.G.Kar, the deceased got incentive to his profession, as an Homoeopathic physician, from the late Parbati Charan De, father of the late illustrious Dr. D.N. De and drank deep into the unfathomable depth of the philosophy of Hahnemann. After a promising and faithful practice of long 38 years, he became convinced that Homoeopathy was an art of healing, which not only treats the body alone but serves intrinsically to bring about a healthy soul alike.
He was the founder-secretary of the Dunham College of Homoeopathy. His “Aids to Organon”, “Sishu-roge Samhita”, “Essential of Organon” are some of the instances of scholarly gifts to the Homoeopathic literature and science and can be rightly counted upon as reliable treatise on the subject. The “Homoeopathic Herald” one of the outstanding Organs on the subject published in India, owes its very existence to the late Dr. N.C. Bose, who, as its Editor-in-chief, left no stone unturned for its progressive advancement and its high standard as at present.
Besides, with a view to educating the general public as well as those in the profession, he spared no pains to lend his hand in the different medical journals, outstanding of which, is his article entitled “Veshaj-tatwa” in “Homoeopathic Darshak.” Right through his life, he had proved himself to be a true medical man.
Looking to the other side of his literary genius, we find in him a poet and a dramatist as well. His “Kurukshetra”, “Hamir” and a Neck-Najar” were very successfully staged at the Star Theatre and the Thespian Temple, of olden days.
Out and out a Vedantist, the late Dr.N.C.Bose was an initiated disciple of the Holy mother of Sree Sree Ramkrishna Order.
Of late, he had been suffering from high blood-pressure and was under the treatment of Dr.Amalendu De till the last day of his life. Besides numerous friends and admirers, he has left behind his widowed wife, three brothers, three sons, four daughters and a host of nephews and nieces to mourn his loss.
