Mathematics day celebration remembering Dr. Ramanujan
An online program was celebrated on National Mathematics Day at Hindustan College by the Department of Mathematics on the 133rd birthday of the great mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan. In which the great mathematician Mr. Ramanujan was remembered for his unprecedented and international contribution in the field of mathematics. The Chief Guest of the program was Dr.Saurabh Srivastava, the Associate Professor of Mathematics Department of Jaypee University, Solan and as Distinguished Guest Dr. Girraj Verma, Amity University, Gwalior
The program was started by Dr. Rajiv Kumar Upadhyay, Director of the institute, Dr. Harendra Singh, Head of the Department of Mathematics and Dean R&D Prof. M.S Gaur garlanded the portrait of Shri Ramanujam.
On this occasion, a powerpoint presentation competition was organized by the Department of Mathematics with the theme "Importance of mathematics in engineering and real life" and "A magical way to live and learn mathematics"in that Deepak Kumar, a student of mechanical engineering secured first position the student of Electronics and Communication Shubhangi Shakya got second position and Shikhar Singh student of the Department of Computer Science Engineering secured third position.
Head of Department of Mathematics Department Dr. Harendra Singh Chauhan told the life of Shri Ramanujan that he was born on 22 December 1887 in Erode, a village in Coimbatore. His father was Srinivasa Iyengar Taya and the name of his mother was Mrs. Komalathammal.
His life was spent in extreme poverty and trouble, but despite this Ramanujan gave many mathematical formulas and methods in his life. Over the years, many researches were done and research papers were published in many international journals. He told that in Ramanujan ji’s dream also the mathematical equations of motion came down as divine blessings like a divine boon. He gave 3900 mathematical theorems at the age of 32. He also told about the magical number 1729 which is called Hardy Ramanujan number.
Director of the institute, Dr. Rajiv Kumar Upadhyay said that our life is fundamental to mathematics. You can also learn mathematics from the environment. He advised the students to pay more attention to the subject of mathematics. Recalling the great mathematician, he said that Shri Ramanujan was very good in mathematics as a child but he never felt good in traditional education. At the age of only ten years, he had secured the highest marks in the district. Ramanujan always had a habit of questioning; he used to ask questions in class. He had studied college level mathematics at school time but due to interest in mathematics, he failed in all subjects except mathematics in class XI. Later he collaborated with Professor Hardy of England and published high-quality research papers. Ramanujan wrote a high-level paper on mock theta function that is used not only in mathematics but also in medical science to understand cancer.
The program was Coordinated by Dr. M.P Singh and conducted by Dr. Mukti Pandey, Assistant Professor of the Department, making the mathematics aware of all the facts. At the end of the program, the Dr Salim Ahmed proposed a vote of thanks.
The system administrators of the institute, Mr. Kapil Chaudhary and Mr. Anoop Gupta, had a special contribution to make the program successful online.
On this occasion, the Head of Department of Humanities Dr. Mamat Sharma, Controller of Examinations Dr. Rajeev Kumar Tiwari, Dr. Shankar Thawkar, Dr. Richa Kapoor, Mr. Anurag Vajpayee, Mr. Vipin Kumar, Mr. Sanjay Singh, Mr. Saket Bihari, Mr. Himanshu Rajput and all the teachers and staff members of the institute were present.
