Lord Ganesha with Different Strokes....

Lord Ganesha- a lord of success and remover of obstacles, and the mystical symbol Om [ą„] are the cultural mnemonics of India. Capturing the spirit of Lord Ganesha in different manifestations has always been a dream of an artist. And achieving the very essence of it in a few strokes is really an art of minimalism. Apart from the artistic elegance, it has the power and appeal to connect with you in any form. Last week I installed an app called Calligraphy Art which is really good for drawing elegant & beautiful letterforms. Here are the few drawings I tried with this app and with iDraw app.

Project Euler- Problem 1

Here is the Euler problem 1

If we list all the natural numbers below 10 that are multiples of 3 or 5, we get 3, 5, 6 and 9. The sum of these multiples is 23.Find the sum of all the multiples of 3 or 5 below 1000.

Inspired by the Bret Vector's interactive demos,  I just wanted to create the solution involving some interaction. So here is the Mathematica code-

Manipulate[Total[Select[Range[x], Mod[#, 3] == 0 || Mod[#, 5] == 0 &]], 
{{x, 1, Style["Number", FontFamily -> "Myriad", 12]}, 1, 999, 1, Appearance -> "Open"},
Alignment -> Center, BaseStyle -> {FontFamily -> "Avenir Light", 36}, FrameLabel -> Style["Sum", 12]]
