He got married in 1909 and started looking for a job His search took him to many influential people, among them Ramachandra Rao, one of the founding members of the Indian Mathematical Society For a year he was supported by Ramachandra Rao who gave him Rs 25 per month He started posing and solving problems in the Journal of the Indian Mathematical Society His research paper on Bernoulli numbers, in 1911, brought him recognition and he became well known in Chennai as a mathematical genius In 1912, with Ramachandra Raos help, he secured the post of clerk in the accounts section of the Madras Port Trust He continued to pursue mathematics and in 1913 he wrote to G H Hardy in Cambridge, enclosing a long list of his own theorems Hardy immediately recognized Ramanujans mathematical ability On the basis of Hardys letters, Ramanujan was given a scholarship by the University of Madras in 1913 In 1914, Hardy arranged for him to go to Trinity College, Cambridge

Ramanujans work with Hardy produced important results right from the beginning In 1916 Ramanujan graduated from Cambridge with a Bachelor of Science by Research In 1918, he was elected a Fellow of the Cambridge Philosophical Society, a Fellow of the Royal Society of London, and a Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge, all in the same year! However, from 1917 onwards he was seriously ill and mostly bedridden In 1919 he returned to India, in very poor health

Ramanujan made outstanding contributions to analytical number theory, elliptic functions, continued fractions, and infinite series His published and unpublished works have kept some of the best mathematical brains in the world busy to this
