New Delhi | Jagran Lifestyle Desk: India's celebrated Mathematician, Srinivasa Ramanujan is one of that genius who contributed to the theory of numbers, infinite series, mathematical analysis and continued fractions. Born on December 22, in a small town of Tamil Nadu, Ramanujan grew up in poverty. He didn't have any formal training in pure mathematics. However, by the age of 14, he was one of the prodigies who had received several merit certificates and academic awards in mathematics.
