Koil Street house
Ramanujan took up residence at Hanumantharayan Koil Street in
Triplicane. He lived with his mother and Janaki, his wife. Soon
after receiving the University’s Scholarship offer, in February
1914, he sent his wife and mother back to Kumbakonam. He changed
his hair-style, from the traditional Brahminical style of a tuft,
to the “English Crop”, equipped himself with Western
dresses and prepared for his departure to England.
