In 1913, a young, unschooled Indian clerk wrote a letter to G. H. Hardy, begging the pre-eminent English mathematician's opinion on several ideas he had about numbers. The letter revealed the mind of a mathematical genius and led to one of the most remarkable collaborations of the twentieth century.

What an amazing man who left the world with never ending possibilities :) and died way too soon. I liked the film also.

tHERE IS so much more to this story than what the DVD version gives & well worth the read. Also a good primer in the varieties of culture of India. What a struggle this man (& untold number of Indians) have had with the historical control of Britain with the classes & prejudice.

Actually I've listened to this more than once & realize there's so much more about Indian culture, customs & lives. I have found this to be an excellent audiobook of great interest.
