Hello India! I have a question for my Indian friends here on HLTV. Do you guys study anything about the life of Ramanujan in school? I am fascinated by this absolute genius and would like to know what you guys hear about him during your school time. Everytime I look at pictures of him I can see he was more than a human, his brain was more than extraordinary and you can see something in him that says that. When pay attention, it looks like he could see the fabric of the world around him. I wish I had the unbelievable talent he had. Also, the movie based on his life is so goddamn good. I just can't stand the fact that a person with such fantastic brain was gone so soon...

#11. That movie is absurdly fantastic. That man was a god among humans. There is not much to say. A movie about a mind that was way beyond the comprehension we have about the nature of math and its implications.

Yeah everyone knows about his basic details and ofcourse Ramanujan number and at most there would've been a box about him on some page in maths textbook in high school and if it piqued someone's curiosity they would've gone home and read up but there's nothing that was valuable enough to be imparted to a school class such that we have a dedicated chapter on his life.

Bro I am Indian, we just have weak primary education (Grade 1 to 5th). we dont have any inferiority complex but our books are kinda bad, teachers have to teach these things from themselves. My teachers were good so we know about others but in some placed only people like Einstein or Heisenberg are been taught.

I don't think school books can have the contents he proposed but maybe his introduction which I've found in dozen of renowned authors from various countries, so I assume there must be at least introduction about him in the books in India too ?

I dont remember in my school time I read his name more than twice in 12 years. I agree along with him there are plenty more people and each one of them should have basic introduction.

From India here, Yes we know he's smart, famous. No one actually studies what his work is or what he worked on. Most people know the story of his tragic death and a car licence number which he talked about when he died. They called it the "ramanujan number". I assume all the kids that go to school will get to know this information. Not much else. It's how it works here. kinda. No one gives a fuck to people who we should have. 3rd world countries may look better in some standards compared to 1st. But there is a Tier 1 to Tier 3 CS difference. People still fight and die over religion here. Hard to change them. Maybe I got off the topic a bit. Hope you get the essence "Most Indians don't give a fuck to what he worked on" Peace.

Yes, I'm truly glad it's changing. Huge thanks to the internet for that. <3 But, Seeing Trump and some of the USA residents do the things they do and believe the stuff they believe in. IMHO set my country back about 10 years of being and growing more into rationalism. I was trying to explain the debunking of a conspiracy to my cousin which Trump started kinda. As my government was strongly preaching wearing masks when we go out. In the end, she ended up saying "You and Indian Government, talk like you know more (better) than the President of the USA and their tech" "Trump can't lie as the POTUS as there would be people who check all his speech before he speaks" It's kinda like "People cant be cheating on VAC secured servers"
2020-11-20 16:15
I hope someday that changes, and you praise those that really deserve it. This is not specific to your country, so don't feel that bad.

From a motivational/inspirational perspective, some teachers do take out time to talk about Ramanujan, Kalam, etc. From an academic perspective, no. His math is way too advanced for school level.

2020-11-21 16:06
If you are asking whether he was included in our education curriculum then no. Outside school yeah I have met people who are really aware about him. Through them I also came to know that it was Indian engineers who created the device which helped Stephen Hawking talk. There's an YouTube video about that if you interested on how they achieved this.

Well India is d only major civilizational country where you taught to hate your culture and heritage and glorifies i$lamic invaders who destroyed it. They don't teach about great leaders and great minds rather our history is fully based on Gandhi and Nehru's lifestyle and how they they divided our country based on relegion. Bollywood make tons of biopics on terrorist and druggists and forgets the contribution of great minds like Ramanujan.
