Srinivasa Ramanujan- “The man who knew infinity”
Srinivasa Ramanujan didn’t receive any education in Mathematics but really made important contributions to Mathematics and he has given many Mathematics Theorems. He studied mathematics in depth in order to solve and analyze mathematics.
He joined Trinity institute during world war 1, and the next year he was elected to the London Mathematics Society. He was also elected as a fellow of the royal society for his research in numbers and the same year he became the first Indian to be elected in Trinity College, Cambridge.
In 1919 he came back to India but due to poor health and one year later in 1920, he breathes his last at the age of 32.
But Srinivasa Ramanujan will always remain in our heart as he is the master of Mathematics and has represented India at a great level.
