Movie on Ramanujan, the mathematical genius

Madhavan will play the lead role as Ramanujan. An iyengar playing the role of iyengar ramanujan.

Madhavan, a tamil iyengar has married a maharashtrian girl. And to his credit - no kisu kisu till now!

"It is not surprising that Hollywood is planning to make a film on Srinivasa Ramanujan, one of the world's great mathematicians. Though born in Tamil Nadu, Ramanujan spent some of his creative time in London with another renowned mathematician Godfrey Hardy. Their unusual friendship is an interesting theme for any script writer.

The lead role of Ramanujan will be played by R Madhavan.

The film will be based on the book The Man Who Knew Infinity by Robert Kanigel and directed by Matt Brown."

Madhavan seems to be the right choice. Hope the image of the great mathematician will be maintained high! :high5:
 
Maths

Well I for one will not go to the movie when released. Because I am still struggling with a maths problem: Why 5 out of 4 people have problem with the subject? Obviously I am poor in the subject.

Trust me a lot of us are not great in math, it is the fear more than the understanding, it all depends on the teacher, until 3rd grade I had an excellent teachers, and fourth grade was torture, and fear of math set in and I never recovered.. but again after 32 years, since I had to take some college courses, they told me that I had to do math again, I did take math and algebra and scored quite well, got a B in math, so I am was wondering, why the heck was I so afraid of it.. :))

I hope that the movie will do full justice to the main character, like Raji said.. I am sure I will see it.. and Madhavan is a very good actor.. :)

You are so lucky that only math is challenging to you.
I am life-challenged, so one subject does not bother me. LOL
 
Talking of Math... My uncle used to say this poem (!) when I was little girl.

Algebra is a zebra,
Looks like a cobra,
Makes a man 'gAbrA',
In the town of Agra!
:scared:
 
When the accounts do not tally, people say,

" It is Gandhi kanakku!" :heh:

Why drag in a great truth-teller

to label the untrue accounts!!! :pout:
 
Maths forms the basis of Music :sing:

Literature (grammar and meter) and

many more subjects besides.

Any real problem can be converted to

a maths problem and solved very easily.

I :love: mathematics!!!
 
Post # 4. No baits please. Arithmetic is ok and useful in daily life without the help of calci/mobile which is a must for today's kids to calculate 4 x 4. On the eve of my SSLC results we (birds of same feathers) walked on and on in a stark and scary night away from our village on the pretext of seeing a movie for the first(?) time but actually trying to ward of the next morning and day.... Actually we had to walk 8 miles to see a movie then. Even today if I think how I scrapped through Maths I lose my sleep. When the film is released and viewers say that there are song sequences and Madhavan and his escort go round the trees, I will still miss the movie and hate Madhavan thereafter. Madam, you have a beautiful and pleasing name, but you scare me! I strongly feel, but for Maths, Ramanujam would have lived very much longer.

I have heard riddles like
"ஒண்டர ஆட்டுக்கு எத்தனை கால்கள்?"

But 2 and half men is new to me!

Can you please explain /elaborate?

Also I want the answer
for the Tamil riddle quoted here! :)
 
But for Mathematics Ramanujam MIGHT have lived much longer...

but I bet his name would have been forgotten much much sooner.

நான்கே கால்கள் தான். ஏனென்றால் அது 'ஒன்டர' ஆடு. Seeking shelter!. (2.1/2 men): It is an English Serial comedy with bits of wrongs.
 
What is maths actually?.

We are given a few things / alphabets / numbers.

We have to arrive at some other things/ alphabets / numbers.

Now we have to find the easiest path leading us from

the given things to the things wanted.

We do it all the time in our real lives.

But while thinking in the abstract or with numbers and

alphabets like a, b, c, or p, q, r or x, y, z people get frightened.

How do you think I wrote my naughty poems?

The words rhymed well but were COMPLETELY unrelated.

I had to give them a shape, a credibility, a story and join them.

So the same thinking process ...

to start with what you have and arrive at what you need.

I think people will be able to appreciate those unusual (weird?)

poems better - when they read them keeping in mind the fact

that the process was the reverse...not from the theme to the

words but from the stray words to a theme.

The solitary visitor continues to visit my blog everyday to view

my home page and goes back...without reading single poem.

I would like to know who it is and whether the regular visit is to

curse my photo??? :rolleyes:

Do you know about the supppper senior prof.s in the Maths department, in the USA? We have a couple of close friends!

Maths should not be the reason for Sri. Ramanujan's premature death.

Fearing about the songs around the trees, I mentioned in my post that the image of R should be maintained in the film. :drama:
 
not necessarily; depends on the location and time. In a kasappukadia, one and a half goats will have six legs, whether cut lengthwise or widthwise.

An agile brain can find multiple answers for puzzles.

Ramanujan invented many theorems with answers (not solutions) and said that the answers were given to him by namagiri thayar of namakkal. For some problems, he gave only the answers, for some, he wrote the steps in the margin and erased them.

Hardy was amazed that during his stay in cambridge, ramanujan had something new every day for discussions.
Right answer sir! :clap2:

The usual wrong answer is 4+2 = 6 legs
:)

Ramanujam, died of lead poisoning, from what I have read, he used to heat up the vegetable cans in the slow flame, since he was a pure vegetarian and there was not much provision for a suddha brahmin, I suppose, I too wish he was alive more number of years.. In an interview with his wife, this was aired in the Public Broadcast Channel in the US, his wife was in such a bad state, sitting in a run down house, so sad to see a genius's wife in such a state..

I believe, in the recent years, an old box containing some material, belonging to Ramanujam was found.. and still they are unable to decipher the problem.. :)
 
In the butchers shop, the one and half goats may not have even a single leg-if someone had purchased them for making the famous soup known by its name...despite being cut length-wise or breadth-wise.

If people are not able to decipher the problems...

what about their answers???
