Rajouri: The Science Club in collaboration with Department of Mathematics of Govt. PG College Rajouri celebrated National Mathematics Day to mark 133rd birth anniversary of great mathematician S. Ramanujan here today.
On this occasion a webinar organized in which Prof. U V Balakrishnan from Department of Mathematics, Sharda University, Greater Noida, UP, was the resource person who delivered a talk on the topic “A peep into life and works of Ramanujan”.

At the age of 9, Ramanujan gave PNT solution and at age 17 Bernoulli number then he gave the number theory, prime number theorem (named after him, Ramanujan prime), divergent series, arithmetic functions etc. that laid foundation of mathematics for generations of mathematicians, he underlined. In his presentation, he also reminded Hardy’s rediscovery of Ramanujan’s work which is so relevant till date.
Principal of College, Prof. (Dr.) Shakeel Ahmed Raina who himself is a Mathematician, also gave a detailed talk on role of Mathematics as mother discipline and lauded work of Ramanujan as one of greatest mathematician of all times.
He emphasized upon the need for the promotion of mathematics at all levels which is more important than many disciplines in today’s life.”Genius work of Ramanujan is great source of inspiration for all of us and furthering it for greater good of humanity shall be real tribute to him”, he added.
