Hindus urge launching of a “Ramanujan International Mathematics Museum & Library” in the mathematical genius Srinivasa Ramanujan’s birthtown of Erode (Tamil Nadu, India) to mark his 125th birth anniversary which falls on December 22.
Distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, said that it would be an appropriate tribute in Ramanujan’s memory and it would inspire the coming generations.
University of Cambridge and Indian Institutes of Technology should also institute research chairs in mathematics in Ramanjuan’s name honoring his legacy, Rajan Zed added.
Zed noted that Ramanujan was a deeply religious person, a devoted Hindu and a strict vegetarian. This proved that science and religion could go hand in hand.
Srinivasa Ramanujan (1887-1920), a renowned mathematician, autodidact and natural genius; born to a poor family; made extraordinary contributions to various areas of mathematics at a young age with very little formal training.
