Srinivasa Ramanujan, widely considered one of India’s most influential mathematical scholars, remains a source of inspiration for scholars and mathematicians globally. In recognition of his extraordinary contributions and lasting legacy, the Government of India issued a special postage stamp in his honour. Srinivasa Ramanujan was born on December 22, 1887, in Erode, Tamil Nadu. Ramanujan’s groundbreaking work in modular forms, a mathematical discipline focused on the properties and symmetries of complex numbers, laid new foundations for further progress in this field. His discoveries played an important role in advancing our understanding of number theory and numerical behaviour. Furthermore, Ramanujan’s investigations into division tasks, involve representing numbers as sums of other numbers.
