National Mathematics Day
India celebrates National Mathematics Day on December 22 every year.
The day marks the birth anniversary of famous mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan.
In the year 2012 Prime Minister Manmohan Singh declared the date as National Mathematics Day to honor the great man.
From his childhood, he has had a huge passion for mathematics. So much so, that at the age of 12, he had mastered trigonometry and developed many theorems on his own with no assistance.
He was awarded a scholarship to study at Government Arts College, Kumbakonam, but he eventually lost it due to his abysmal performance in other subjects.
He ran away from home and enrolled himself at Pachaiyappa’s College in Madras.The fascinating scientific study of the anatomy, physiology, behaviour, habitats, and health of humans and animals has a big impact on the environment. It uses a range of techniques, such as electron microscopy, molecular genetics, and field ecology.
