Can you help connect an Indian scientist?

This time, we're trying to connect Indian scientists. The ones I've been able to find have often emigrated to other countries, so we may be able to connect them through people they married outside of India, and thus provide a series of Indian profiles to which other Indian profiles and branches might eventually be connected, and thus work towards to improving the issue of India being so under-represented on WikiTree.

If you can add sources, photos, or biographies, build out the family trees, or improve these profiles in any other ways, so much the better!

I apologise that this list is so short. I'm having a really hard time finding profiles for Indian scientists on Wikitree. (At least, with their names in Roman script, which is all the English version of Wikipedia offers on most of their entries. It may be that at least some of them have profiles with their names spelled in Bengali or Telegu or whichever language/alphabet applies.)

If you can read/speak/write any of the appropriate languages/alphabets, can you please check to see if any of the deceased former 20th-century Indian scientists listed on Wikipedia have profiles on WikiTree, and let me know if you find any? (I figure that list is a good start, since it's not too likely that many, if any, of the 21st century Indian scientists are deceased. And you can work backwards in time as far as you want to go.) And, if you can confirm that a particular scientist definitely doesn't have a profile (in any language/alphabet), could you please create one and let me know, so I add that profile to this list?

Thank you. ধন্যবাদ. આભાર. धन्यवाद। ਤੁਹਾਡਾ ਧੰਨਵਾਦ. ధన్యవాదాలు.

P.S. I'm not a WikiTree Leader, and have no authority to assign points, credit, or anything like that. My intent with these challenges is for them to be a fun little break from whatever you're doing regularly. There's no time limit, there are no prizes, and if you have fun finding and adding relatives, then you win. (And WikiTree wins in any case, because the more connected profiles we have, the better the tree is for everybody.)

That said, if you manage to connect any of the profiles listed here to the main tree, there's no reason that you can't count that connection towards the Connectors Challenge, if you're taking part in that. (Or, you could count it towards the Sourcerers Challenge if you run across an unsourced profile which is already on WikiTree and add one or more sources to it.)

P.P.S. If this challenge intrigues you, and you think you might like to try your hand at connecting other unconnected branches, you can find more threads like this on the Places to find unconnected profiles page.

I see that Biraj Mohan Das Gupta  has been connected. Thank you to whoever did that.
