National Mathematics Day 2021: Know Srinivas Ramanujan

Today is National Mathematics Day. It is celebrated on December 22 every year. This day is celebrated as the 133rd birth anniversary of Mr. Srinivas Ramanujan.

On the 26th of February 2012, the anniversary of the Indian Mathematician Srinivas Ramanujan was announced by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. Manmohan Singh also announced that 2012 will be celebrated as the National Mathematics Year on this occasion.


After that, the National Mathematics Day of India is celebrated in educational schools and universities and it is organized across the country every year on this day.

On December 22, 1887, Srinivas Ramanujan was born in Madras [now in the small village of Chennai]. His father Srinivas Aayangar was a clerk in the clothing factory. As his economic situation was not good, but for the good burial of the child, he came to the city of Kumbakonam with his family.

Until high school, he was good at all subjects. But the math was like a special project for them, which was gradually taking the passion of a person. This student looks normal, the class of classes begging for another second. They also solve mathematics questions in biology and social science.


Due to his good performance in the school till school, he got the scholarships, but the next year it was taken back. The reason was that in addition to mathematics he started to ignore the rest of all subjects. When he failed, his school studies stopped.

He was invited by J H Hardy to come to Cambridge. Ramanujan also got financial assistance to go to Cambridge from the efforts of Professor Hardy. The degree also got, but he did not have to be shut down in climate and living. His health became worse.

His pursuit was increasing. He was nominated by the Royal Society. At present, when India was living in slavery, then a black person was a great deal of subsidiary to the Royal Society. And so, no one of the following pages in the entire history of the Royal Society has been done today. After the membership of the Royal Society, he became the first Indian to get the Trinity college fellowship.


There was a lot, but health refused to give it. He returned to India on the doctor’s advice. In the ill situation, the high-level research paper was written. On the morning of April 26, 1920, he died. His death was deeply mourned. The great mathematician Srinivas’ anniversary as Indian National Mathematics Day was announced by the Government of India on the occasion of the 125th Jayanti’s annual in the year 2012. Every year on this day we celebrate National Mathematics Day.

Srinivas Ramanujan was one of the most influential mathematicians of his time.
He gave many forms of mathematics which were not easy to understand.

Ramanujan had a treasure of ideas, who changed 20th-century mathematics and gave a new one. These ideas remain shaped by 21st-century mathematics.


As a great mathematician, he exceptionally contributed to mathematical analysis, number principles, infinite series, and continuous fractions. Many of the research in mathematics were opened by new comprehension of mathematical research until compiled to comply with more than 3900 mathematical results and compiles.

Ramanujan has departed from the world at the age of 32, but in this short time, he also left such a chapter in mathematics, which is difficult to forget.

In 2017, the importance of the day was increased by the inauguration of Ramanujan Math Park in Kuppam in Chittoor in Andhra Pradesh.
