The Gifts Within Us

At the age of 10, Srinivasa Ramanujan started to devour books of mathematics. Born 1887 and living in Kumbakonam, India, he self-taught and dived himself into the world of numbers and committed to the discoveries of their mysteries. As a child prodigy, he created theorems that grabbed the attention of the academic world of mathematics at that time.

At the University of Cambridge, Ramanujan’s genius was further put to good use and some of his many famous findings and breakthroughs such as Ramanujan theta function, Ramanujan prime and Ramanujan conjecture. They went on to influence future mathematical works. By the time of his death at age 32, he had gone on to expound on almost 3800 theorems that made significant contribution to the world of mathematics.

Granted that not many can produce tons of mathematical theorems and prove the greats like Ramanujan, we still have gifts within us. We conjure up gifts of understanding, of wisdom and of learning. Be it technical or not, large or small, we can still give our gifts like Ramanujan.

Our purpose is to bring these gifts into manifestation, unwrap them and present them to the world so that others may benefit from them… hopefully for generations to come.

Listen to yourself, search within, what are your gifts? And how would you want to benefit others with these gifts?
