Discoveries and dreams: Dr Arijit Das makes a new beginning

By Shekhar Dutta

Agartala, Sep 04, 2012 : He is a man of science devoted to acquiring and disseminating knowledge of chemistry among his students but his stated conviction rattles people : Dr Arijit Das who has discovered completely new methods of calculating hybridisation and IUPC nomenclature is convinced that the methods had dawned on him in a dream. Currently head of the department, Chemistry, in Dharmanagar Government College in north Tripura, Dr Das had long been seized with the study of hybridisation and IUPC nomenclature to teach the students the complicated methods in an easy manner. Though a scientist in the state forensic science laboratory till early last year Dr Das had been teaching a large number of students.

'In those days I was thinking of only one thing, Hybridisation and IUPC nomenclature; you may find it strange but the truth is that one evening while dozing off on a chair in my drawing room I suddenly woke up to the new formula on hybridisation and noted it down immediately on my note-book; the crucial finding on IUPC formula similarly came in a dream one night' said an elated Dr Das . His new formula for determining the pace and quantum of hybridisation came out in a specialised article in the standard Indian journal 'Chemistry Today', published from Delhi by MTG Learning Media Programme (ISBN 2468) in May last year. The authority running the journal took one full year to ascertain the authenticity of the new formula on hybridisation as well as to wait for any contradiction that might have been raised. 'They have confirmed in a letter recently the correctness of my findings, similarly my new findings on IUPAC nomenclature of Bicyclo and Spiro Compounds was published in 'Chemistry Today' journal in its April 2012 issue after a whole year' said Dr Arijit Das.

A Phd in chemistry from Tripura (Central) university, Sr Arijit Das had also been a 'PMLP 1st fellow-2002-2004' in the university. Apart from this, Dr Das has been the prestigious '1st Reviewer' for two leading chemistry journals in the world, London-based 'Inorganic Chemistry Communication', published by ELACVIER and 'Journal of Co-ordination Chemistry', published by Taylor-Francis. His new discoveries have been appreciated also by professors of four leading universities, Burdwan and Calcutta universities in West Bengal, Tripura Central University and North Eastern Hill University (NEHU).Professors, Dr G.N.Mookherjee, Dr Arabinda Kr Das, Dr Ranendu Nath and Dr R.A.Lal of the four universities have all congratulated Dr Das and said that they will introduce the new methods of study in their universities. 'This is the real recognition I have got though I am applying for J.C.Bose science award for the year 2012-2013, it comprises a citation and a cash prize of Rs 20 thousand which I will donate to Ram Krishna Mission provided I actually win the prize' said Dr Arijit Das.

12/03/2013 17:56:48Dr. Sabyasachi Nathsabyasachi_nath2011@yahoo.inCONGRATULATIONS ARIJIT, FOR YOUR NEW DISCOVERIES AND VALUABLE CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE WORLD OF CHEMISTRY. YOU GOT THOSE NEW FORMULAE IN YOUR DREAMS...THIS SOUNDS LIKE SOMEBODY HAS DONATED YOU SOMETHING AND YOU ARE SHARING THESE WITH OTHERS. BUT WHAT I FEEL IS THIS IS YOUR PERSPIRATION THAT RESULTS INTO SUCH DISCOVERIES. YOU HAVE DEVOTED LONG TIME IN SUBCONSCIOUS CONDITION FOR THOSE DISCOVERIES. HOPE YOUR NEW DISCOVERIES WILL PUT YOU INTO A NEW TRACK THROUGH WHICH YOU WILL PROCEED FURTHER AND FURTHER. LOOKING FOR YOUR NEXT DISCOVERY. YOU MADE US SO PROUD.
