Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Bidhan Chandra Roy, M.R.C.P., F.R.C.S. ( 1 July 1882-1 July 1962) was the second Chief Minister of West Bengal in India. He remained in his post for 14 years as a Indian National Congress candidate, from 1948 until his death in 1962. He was a highly respected physician and a renowned freedom fighter. Bidhan Roy is often considered as the great architect of West Bengal, who had founded three eminent cities Durgapur, Kalyani and Bidhannagar. He was an alumnus of the Medical College Calcutta of the University of Calcutta. He is one of the few people who completed both F.R.C.S. and M.R.C.P. simultaneously within only two years and three months. In India, the National Doctor's Day is celebrated on the date of his birth (and death) July 1 every year. Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy constituted a trust for his properties at Patna for social service and made eminent nationalist Ganga Sharan Singh (Sinha) the trustee. He won the Bharat Ratna in 4 February 1961, India's highest civilian honour. He was also a member of the Brahmo Samaj.show more
