LIFE & EXPERIENCE OF A BENGALI CHEMIST (An Autobiography of Acharya Prafulla Chandra Ray) সবক্ষে কয়েকটি সংবাদপত্রের অভিমতঃ– “A more remarkable career than that of P. C. Rāy could not well be chronicled. The story told is not only fascinating; it has an altogether special value, as a presentation of a complex mentality, unique in character, range of ability and experience.* * * * From beginning to end, the message of the book is one of the highest endeavour, pulsating with vitality and intellectual force. Few pages are without proof that the author is steeped in our best traditions, no mere nationalist.”—Nature. “Next to the late Sir Ashutosh Mookerjee, Sir Prafulla Chandra Rāy has been the foremost Bengali educationist of our time. He has done most valuable work in creating a school of chemical research in Calcutta, and thereby has exercised a wide influence on the progress of science in the whole country. Sir Prafulla, who is now a septuagenarian, has set his face steadily through his public career against the too literary character of university education and has dwelt on the necessity for the development of industries as a means of checking the flow of middle-class unemployment.” —The London Times (Educational Supplement). “This is an interesting and inspiring account of what a chemist's life can be. * * * To the readers of this autobiography it is clear that * * * Sir P. C. Rây has been a great scholar, chemist, teacher and administrator and that he has been first, last and all the time a patriot—a Hindu and a Bengali.” –Journal of the American Chemical Society. “ * * * the student of Indian affairs will find the book worth the pains it costs to read. Sir P. C. Rây is an independent and original thinker —a doer, perhaps, rather than a thinker—and he has had a remarkable career which has given him a special interest in and knowledge of certain important aspects of the great Indian question.”—Manchester Guardian. “An autobiography of the Great Indian Chemist " * * contains much thoughtful advice to the younger generation, based on his own keen observa. tion and ripe experience.”—The Chemical Age (London).
