...is non-existent, because by the rules of sudoku all columns contain one each of the digits 1-9 and therefore all columns add up to 45. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sudoku

I missed the trick. It was not 9x9 but 3x3 my mistake and so still would give nimesh as winner if no one else mind

if the question was actually asked for sudoku, the question seems to be incorrect
