Sreenivasa Ramanujan's High Resolution Colorized & Restored Photo
Majority of the issue was related to photographs/images that we used to attach with the article, i never found a good one.
I faced many difficulties when i was writing about dravidian culture of southern India. No appropriate photos found to post, if i found something it's something watermarked or copyrighted which is unusable for most use cases. No matter what you are not going to get it, thats it. Also once after that i was writing something about Meghanadha Saha, famous Indian scientist who put forwarded "Saha ionization equation". Even though i found a descent image of him, i realized that as a country we are a way back in internet.
We know that technology is very advanced now, high end cameras, pro-res videos, fast rendering, GANs, 16K's..etc. Every personal gadget has top notch possibilities in capturing various data, and also effective handling systems from underground clouds to personal SSD's. but none of these are not helped us to put Indian content in internet.
No images of Indian scientists, places, popular peoples of old times. if there is one, it will sure be in less clarity, compressed and watermarked otherwise it may be in some stock sites, where common content creators cant access it due to high cost.
This is the same way how i came across Sreenivasa Ramanujan, who is was a brilliant Indian scientist who made lots of contributions and gave mathematical backbone to world of science from black holes, string theory, M-theory..etc. Unfortunately u cant find a good photo of him anywhere.....!!!!!! Even hollywood released a drama "The Man who knew Infinity" based on his life.
The photo circulating on internet is some old looking least clarity noisy one, which is the only one that is survived till the date. May be because of the least technology privileges of-that time, we never took one, or may be we do not had a proper documentation standard (its true till the date, we are the one country which never invested anything preserve information on time by documentation before loosing it for future generation) to preserve.
