“What will happen if I add up all the numbers in the world?”

“Is there a last number?”

A toddler captivated by patterns... A little boy filling his slate with numbers, rubbing them out with his elbow and starting again... A teenager solving complex maths problems... A young man matching the best minds in Cambridge... Bringing the story of brilliant mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan to children, the book follows his singular fascination with numbers! Satwik Gade’s strong visuals break out of literal depiction to evoke the mind and world of a genius, to whom numbers “made patterns only he could see”.

Captures Srinivasa Ramanujan’s genius for kids

With endearing illustrations that capture the life of a Brahmin family in a small town, Ramanujan’s untidy shock of hair… and his struggle with health before he passed on, leaving a legacy for future scientists, the book tells his extraordinary story from Madras Port Trust clerk to immortal genius — a reminder that journeys have no limits. Deepa Alexander, The Hindu
