Some men live a short life, but in their short life, they leave the high marks of their achievements.

In this list of top scientists of India and their inventions,

we’d like to introduce you to one of the finest minds India has ever had – Srinivasa Ramanujan, the brilliant Indian mathematician.

The most brilliant thing about Ramanujan’s career is that he almost had no formal training in pure Mathematics.

Ramanujan is famous for his contribution to the field of Mathematical analysis, number theory, infinite series, and continued fractions.

He said, “An equation for me has no meaning unless it expresses a thought of God.”
