FULL STORY OF BOSE - IDN

Beginnings

The story of Bose begins with the story of a boy fascinated by electronics—taking things apart, figuring out how they worked and dreaming of one day inventing his own.

 
 

“It turned out that I had great interest in things electrical. We didn’t have enough money To buy new trains, so I would buy scrapped ones and then I would fix them. But that gave you all the interest in repairing things.” 


Dr. Amar G Bose

Amar

From an early age, Amar Bose displayed the traits that would serve him well as an adult —a curiosity about the world around him, a fascination with science and the passion to overcome obstacles on his path to success.

Radio Repair Service

Teenaged Amar Bose built a successful radio repair service out of his family’s home. “We put up signs in all the little hardware stores where my father used to sell his imported goods,” Dr. Bose once told an interviewer. “The signs said, ‘We repair radios.’ So people would drop off their radios at the store and I’d take them home and repair them, and we’d give the store 10% of the invoice.


I had a little pact with my father that if my grades remained good, I could go to school only four days a week, and he would write an excuse saying I had a headache or something. The teachers all knew this; it was always on a Friday and so on Monday, they’d ask me, ‘How many radios did you fix, Bose?’”.

Boy Scout Radio Receive

When he was about 10, Amar Bose went on a camping trip with his Boy Scout troop and had a life-changing experience. 


He and his fellow scouts created makeshift radio receivers to pick up local radio station broadcasts by hammering wooden posts into the ground and running antenna wire between them.


Years later, Dr. Bose would says this was where his love of electronics and technology was born.
