The problem of studying transcendental nature of infinite
series owes its origin to classical mathematics. Such problems are not
discrete in nature and often have a rich transcendence theory behind. In
the first half, we shall discuss few such examples. Then we shall report
on a joint work with M. Ram Murty, where we study transcendental nature of
certain infinite series, in the realm of the theory of E-functions.
