I’m grateful to Robert Kanigel for his writings. In the class of 9 & 10, I see Ramunjan on my math textbook cover every day. Coincidentally, I also had Ramujam sir as our math Teacher in my 9th Standard. Not much into the math, he taught but, my sir developed a curiosity in me to know him.
His intensity and excitement he shares while explaining few axioms and formulae surprised me. I wondered what it is to love math and live for it. I was assuming how Ramanujan was living for math for his whole life.
Recalling the life of Ramanujan, through famous 7397, James Hardy, and many such stories, I was affined to choose to read the book, “The Man who knew Infinity” by Robert Kanigel.
I’m grateful to Swathi for gifting that book. Never expected it.
