Ramanujan, Einstein, Newton: Are they comparable?

I wonder if Newton, Einstein and Ramanujan were in the same league of intellect. Ramanujan, as many know was great, but was he comparable to E and N? It could be true that he remained largely unknown because mathematical discoveries don't affect our life directly. Yet, it makes me a little uneasy. Take a look at this:
