Pi Day 3-14

Hello people, wassup?
Yesterday was a very interesting day from a mathematical point of view because the date was 14th March i.e. 3-14, which is the decimal value of the mathematical constant Pi ( remember 22/7 = 3.14 ) ;)...
In 2009, the United States House of Representatives supported the designation of Pi Day. In fact, the Pi Approximation Day is held on 22 July (22/7 data format), since 22/7 is common approximation of Pi.
Find out more about Pi on Wiki/qwiki ....

The late Russian composer Stravinsky had said, "Music is close to mathematics—not perhaps exactly to mathematics itself, but certainly to something like mathematical thinking and relationship." So, the musicians have taken his idea seriously and tried to create the sound of Pi. Yes, no kidding, there is musical depiction of Pi :)

You dont believe it, hear it by yourself -
