3-2018-Accept our apologies, Ramanujan

This discovery is extracted from:
http://unom.ac.in/index.php?route=department/department/about&deptid=48”
(** Emphasis added by me **)

“….. later on, a grant of Rs.2.lakh by the National Board for Higher
Mathematics, Rs. 1 lakh by the The Hindu (Daily Newspaper) and Rs.9 lakh
by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, and a matching grant of Rs. 9 lakh
by the University of Madras were sanctioned. …….
** The amount was utilized towards establishing the Ramanujan Museum, now
housed in the premises of the Ramanujan Institute for Advanced Study in
Mathematics, University of Madras. ….. ……** ” (The University claims this.)

Subsequently, I discovered this anti-climax statement from a very responsble
person in the above institution: “It appears that the UGC (and other sponsors)
had sanctioned some money for a Ramanujan museum long time ago; but the
University had not utilized it properly. **There is no special Ramanujan Museum
in the campus of Ramanujan Institute**. There is only a bust of Ramanujan.”
(This is another version)

Someone is telling lies. Where is the truth ? No one will know the answer.
Meanwhile, please accept our apologies, Mr. Ramanujan.

  1. The beginning
  2. The sequel
