The President of India Pranab Mukherjee received first copies of the books ‘Jnan, A-Janan and Bijnan: Popper-er Jnantatta’ and ‘Samudra Banijjer Prekshite Sthala Banijjya, Bharat Mahasagar Anchal, 1500-1800’ from Dr. Sushil Chaudhury and Dr. (Smt.) Mahasweta Chaudhury in Kolkata, West Bengal.
“Jnan, A-Janan and Bijnan: Popper-er Jnantatta” is an exceptional work in as much as, no such work has yet been done in the Bengali language on the subject. The main thrust of the book is to acquaint people with the concept of knowledge – especially scientific knowledge in the context of Popper’s conception.
Sushil Chaudhury’s monograph ‘Samudra Banijjer Prekshite Sthala Banijjya, Bharat Mahasagar Anchal, 1500-1800’ tries to explode some of the myths which prevailed for long in the historical world.
