WOW! India's Jagadish Chandra Bose may be new face of UK's 50-pound note

Indian physicist and physiologist Sir Jagadish Chandra Bose may appear on United Kingdom's new 50-pound note. He is one of the scientists nominated in the first stage of the Bank of England's search for the face to feature on the new currency to go into print from 2020. 

Bose was born in Bengal during the British Raj in 1858. The legendary scientist is credited with proving that animals and plants share much in common with his very early experiments. He had created a very sophisticated instrument called the crescograph to detect minute responses of living organisms.
