Winner for a couple of hours

Hi all, felt really happy to be the first one to submit a solution to this spoj challenge. This is a challenge problem so the shorter the code, the more points. Well i did remain the winner till a couple of hours till my code length was beaten by numerix, who is one of the best python coders around.
Hoping to improve my code and learn more python.

Please leave you reviews.
