As Hardy was an atheist and believes mathematical proof and analysis, Ramanujan was a deeply religious guy and he believed in his trustworthy intuition . He was the first elected Mathematician from India to the London Mathematical society and he became a Fellow of the Royal society. 02/23/13 Source: Confidential 8
