22 December happens to be the birth anniversary of Srinivasa Ramanujan,
a brilliant mathematician who created some incredible mathematics. His  remarkable discoveries are  useful in a wide variety of fields. Some years ago, after several proddings, the Government of India declared 22 December to be the national mathematics day. Predictably, the celebrations stopped with that declaration. We continue to bask in our ignorance and indifference, given that many of our so-called
mathematicians and institutions  still remain blissfully ignorant of the great mathematical genius whom we do not even know how to celebrate or worship. Much less do we understand or appreciate  his contributions. We can change this pathetic situation only if we teach our younger generation early enough. Just declaring a "national mathematics day" is not enough.

Request the GOI to remind and persuade all schools to celebrate National Mathematics Day more actively.
