This documentary is a celebration of the story of Ramanujan while walking in his footsteps trying to fathom his genius. I will begin with a very short (less than 5 minutes) introduction to the making of the documentary. Then we will watch the documentary; it is about one hour long. Finally, I can (try to) answer any questions the audience might have.

"The Genius of Srinivasa Ramanujan" was directed by Nandan Kudhyadi, and co-produced by Vigyan Prasar in New Delhi, and IISER Pune. The documentary features Ken Ono, Raghuram, K.Srinivasa Rao and T.V.Venkateswaran. The filming was done mostly in Kumbakonam, Nammakal, Erode, Chennai (all in India), and Cambridge, UK. The documentary also involves conversations with: Bruce Berndt, George Andrews, John Coates, Ram Murty and Kumar Murty. It was released in IISER Pune in March 2013.
