    When he was 20, he wed eleven-year-old Ushabala Ghosh in an arranged marriage.
    His initial paper outlining Bose-Einstein statistics (1920) was rejected by several physics journals that felt he had made a basic math error.
    Although several physicists won Nobel Prizes for research into Bose-Einstein statistics, Bose-Einstein condensates and bosons, Bose himself never received one.
    He sent a copy of his 1920 paper to Albert Einstein who recognized its importance, expanded on it, and got his and Bose's papers published in the prestigious Zeitschrift fur Physik (1924).
    Two of his children died in infancy.
    He read seven languages: English, Bengali, Hindi, Sanskrit, French, German and Italian.
    He played the flute and esraj (a stringed instrument similar to the violin) and composed several ragas.
