Self-taught and self-reliable
Ramanujan, born in 1887 at Erode, was always ahead of the formal education that was taught during his time. His passion for numbers took him far ahead and at a higher level.
His mastery of mathematical applications was completely independent of existing models. Every one should be self-motivated to learn and acquire expertise in their field.
Even after dropped out from college, Ramanujan was continuing his ‘explorations’ and innovations.
