Renowned Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan symbolises the talent of people of India, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, emphasising that the two countries believe in the partnership of talent. Expressing his admiration for Ramanujan, Netanyahu said he was one of the greatest mathematicians of all times. “We have a great admiration for people of India. I told you about my late uncle professor, who was a mathematician at the Israel Institute of Technology. He told me many times about his admiration for the great Indian mathematician Ramanujan,” Netanyahu said in a statement along with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

“He was perhaps the greatest mathematician in many centuries. And this symbolises the talent of people of India, as we know we have talent in Israel. We believe in this partnership of talent,” he added. Ramanujan, who died at an early age of 32, has contributed to mathematical analysis, including infinite series and continued fractions.
