What is mathematics? It is only a systematic effort of solving puzzles posed by nature.

— Shakuntala Devi

Yes ,Its true. mathematics is not only a subject its art of solving problms in a systematic approch. As Shakumtala devi said ,its systematic effort to solve the Puzzels posed by nature.

We may be advanced in Technology ,we may have ability to create new technology ,but we can never be completelyRevel the secrete of nature ,Completly understand it.

Today is December 22 ,A special day to remember a genius in Mathematics and Genius in math that India produced and his theories and Problem solving techniques are incomparable. December 22 is Celebrated as NATIONAL MATHEMATICS DAY ,in honor to remember math genius Srinivasa Ramanujan who made achievements in mathematics field.

Srinivas Ramanujan iyyangar known as Srinivas ramanujan ,(S ramanujan) Born on 22 December 1887 in Erode ,Madras Presidency,British India. Now it is in Tamil Nadu. In 1913 he began to Partner with GH Hardy a English mathematician with Postal. recognizing Ramanujan’s extraordinary works in mathematics ,he invited to England .

In collaboration with hardy many ground breaking results were produced.Ramanujan had individually compiled around 3500 results which includes Equations. Of his original letters, Hardy stated that a single look was enough to show they could only have been written by a mathematician of the highest caliber, comparing Ramanujan to mathematical geniuses such as Euler and Jacobi.

He is the Youngest to get Fellow of Royal Society,Fellow of Trinity Collage ,Cambridge. According to Srinivas Ramanujan, The Goddess helps her to solve the problems in his dream. Ramanujan in his brief Life has solved numerous Problems for which world thanks him & remember him. He had no formal education on Pure mathematics.

In 1919, ill health , believed to have been hepatic amoebiasis compelled Ramanujan’s return to India, where he died in 1920 at the age of 32. His last letters to Hardy, written in January 1920, show that he was still continuing to produce new mathematical ideas and theorems.

His “lost notebook”, containing discoveries from the last year of his life, caused great excitement among mathematicians when it was rediscovered in 1976.


Mathematics as an expression of the human mind reflects the active will, the contemplative reason, and the desire for aesthetic perfection. Its basic elements are logic and intuition, analysis and construction, generality and individuality.

— Richard Courant, German-American mathematician
