Rightly regarded as 'natural genius' by the English mathematician G.H. Hardy, Srinivasa Ramanujan displayed an amazing talent in mathematics, even though he did not receive formal training in that subject. He contributed to several areas of mathematics such as the number theory, mathematical analysis, infinite series and continued fractions. This great mathematician of the 20th century added much to the field of advance mathematics with his fascinating theories and proofs, which are in use even today. Also, in 1997, 'The Ramanujan Journal' was published by an American mathematician Bruce .C. Berndt, which showed Ramanujan's areas of study. He formulated many formulas to solve problems, but his untimely death put an end to his great exploration to the unseen beauty and enormity of this subject. Within a short-life, he independently compiled about 3900 results involving identities and equations. Ramanujan used to jot down some of the proofs and theorems in his notebooks that had been studied by many mathematicians, after his death.
