Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy- a forgotten legend

Being a bharat ratna awardee ,  the name of Dr. Bidhan chandra roy is forever scripted on the annals of indian history. But apart from this fact , there is more to this man whose application to a medical school in England was rejected no less than  30 times just because he was an Asian.

 There are untold stories with hidden morals which the young generation of today needs to know and admire. Above all, it's important to refresh our memory and take out some time from our busy schedule to remember the man who was gandhiji's personal physician and who believed in doing it to the best of his ability, whatever came his way.

Born in 1882,  to a lady called aghorkamini devi, he would love to try out things for himself and showed signs of a genius right from his childhood days. He loved mathematics and went on to get a degree in the subject. Later he felt he would be better in a medical school and hence joined one. A brilliant student throughout, he sailed to England to earn his MRCP and FRCS . He returned to his motherland to help ease the suffering of his poor and distraught countrymen. He dedicated his all to his country and thus was a true son of bharatmata.
Every other student in india today wants to be a doctor. So to be one and a nice one at that they all should read the biography of Mr.Roy who left us for his ultimate abode long back in 1962 but still watches over the land which he helped reclaim.
