Bangalore: Knowledge is free, but education is not, stands true to the many aspiring students who have desire to study and no means to pursue them. This has led to an annual decrease in the number of students applying for research studies, especially in pure science streams. As a remedy to the concern, Mangalore University is planning to propose a minimum of 100 scholarships to students who are in pursuit to study pure science courses, in order to produce more scientists and researchers in the country.



At the ‘Sugama Ganita’ a function held to celebrat the 125th birth anniversary of mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan, the Vice Chancellor of the Mangalore University, T.C. Shivashankar Murthy said, “Twenty-five years ago, more than 45 per cent of the students taking up higher education enrolled in a pure science course while now it is less than 19 per cent,” as reported by The Hindu.



Srinivas Ramanujan wan an Indian mathematician born on December 22nd 1887 in a poor Brahmin family. He has contributed to mathematical analysis, continued fractions and infinite series through his brilliant work. He was mostly self-taught, lived in India with no means to mathematical community.
