National Mathematics Day is celebrated every year on December 22, honoring the birth anniversary of mathematical genius Srinivasa Ramanujan. Before he died at the age of just 32 from tuberculosis, he had already given the world around 3500 mathematical formulae that scientists have still not been able to completely prove. The main objective behind celebrating the day is to raise awareness among people about the importance of mathematics for the development of humanity.
The legendary mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan made extraordinary contributions to mathematical analysis, number theory, infinite series & continued fractions. From compiling over 3900 mathematical results and equations to getting discoveries named after him, his numerous assertions in mathematics opened up new vistas of mathematical research.
He was a self-taught mathematician who made extraordinary contributions to the world of mathematics, S Ramanujan was one of the most influential mathematicians of his time.
National Mathematics Day 2020: History
National Mathematics Day was first observed in 2012 when former Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh declared this day as National Mathematics Day on February 26, 2012, when he was visiting the Madras University in order to pay tribute to Ramanujan’s achievements and celebrated his 125th birth anniversary. Since then, it is observed every year on December 22 to honor Ramanujan’s work in the field of mathematics.
The day marks the birth anniversary of self-taught Indian mathematician, Srinivasa Ramanujan and his contributions in the field of mathematics. Ramanujan was born on December 22, 1887, into a Tamil brahmin Iyenger family in Erode, Madras Presidency.
Inspiration for a book, a movie, and a video game
In 2015, a book written on Srinivasa Ramanujan by Robert Kanigel was adapted as a British biographical drama film on the same name – ‘The Man Who Knew Infinity’. It describes the mathematician’s life in India, his Cambridge University years during World War 1 and his journey towards establishing the famed mathematical theories.
The math wizard’s life also inspired a video game in 2016.
Hirav Shah wishes everyone a calculated and Happy Mathematics Day.
