Information about Srinivasa Ramanujan

Srinivasa Ramanujan was an Indian mathematician who lived during the British Rule in India.  Did Srinivasa Ramanujan smoke?: Not Known  Ramanujan credited his substantial mathematical capacities to divinity, and said the mathematical knowledge he displayed was revealed to him by his family goddess  He tried to interest the leading professional mathematicians in his work, but failed for the most part  His last letters to Hardy, written in January 1920, show that he was still continuing to produce new mathematical ideas and theorems  Ramanujan was born on 22 December 1887 into a Tamil Brahmin Iyengar family in Erode, Madras Presidency (now Tamil Nadu), at the residence of his maternal grandparents  His father, Kuppuswamy Srinivasa Iyengar, originally from Thanjavur district, worked as a clerk in a sari shop  His mother, Komalatammal, was a housewife and sang at a local temple  In 1919, ill health—now believed to have been hepatic amoebiasis (a complication from episodes of dysentery many years previously)—compelled Ramanujan's return to India, where he died in 1920 at the age of 32  Ramanujan initially developed his own mathematical research in isolation  Did Srinivasa Ramanujan drink alcohol?: Not Known
