Reminded of an Indian physicist

Regarding the March 15 AP article titled “CERN scientists confident they have finally found elusive Higgs boson“: It is interesting to note that, much like the Western media, the Japanese media never mention — not even in passing — Indian physicist Satyendra Nath Bose, after whom bosons were fondly named.

I wonder what would have happened if he had been born in Japan, Europe or the United States, assuming that his achievements remained the same.
