A brief biography

Ajanta Chakraborty, August 10, 2021: The Times of India

Forty years after his death, Dr Subhash Mukhopadhyay, the architect of India’s first test-tube baby was recognised for his achievement. The Mamata Banerjee government on Friday issued an order to rename the NRS Medical College and Hospital boys’ hostel after Mukhopadhyay, a former teacher of physiology at the college. The pioneering doctor’s bust will also be installed at the campus and the room used by him will be preserved. The move comes two months after his 40th death anniversary.

The state health department has issued the notification stating that it is in adherence to a proposal made by the ex-students of NRS Medical College and Hospital.

On October 3, 1978, 67 days after the birth of the world’s first IVF baby, Marie Louise Brown, India, too, had produced its own — Durga, alias Kanupriya Agarwal. While Brown’s creator, Robert G Edwards, professor emeritus, University of Cambridge, is hailed as the father of IVF and got the Nobel Prize, Mukhopadhyay had to face an inquiry in December 1978. On June 19, 1981, he ended his life after the Central and West Bengal governments refused to recognise his feat.
