National Mathematics Day

Mathematics is involved in our day-to-day life. It gives an effective way to create mental discipline and increases logical reasoning. Mathematical knowledge helps us in understanding the concept of other subjects like science, social studies, music, and art. 

Srinivasa Ramanujan was an Indian mathematician who lived in India during British rule. Born on December 22nd, 1887, he had almost no formal training in pure mathematics. He has made great contributions in the field of mathematics. Many of his brilliant mathematical formulae are yet to be proved by mathematicians.

National Mathematics Day is celebrated in India on 22nd December to recognise Srinivasa Ramanujan’s extraordinary contribution. The day was announced on 26 February 2012 by the then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to mark the 125th birth anniversary.

The contribution of Ramanujan can guide and inspire people to pursue mathematics as a subject. The concepts and procedures of mathematics are used to solve engineering, science, and economics problems. We see that people are not much interested in mathematics as they find it too hard to understand but with the help of National Mathematics Day, we can emphasize the importance of mathematics.
