Look closely in the above pic

And since we do not want you to start looking for connects in deep relativity principles, here is a clue to streamline your quest

udupendra , nihit , srikanth , Ganesh Prasad , jayanth , yaksha , prabhu_dc , Shashank got the answer right.
There was one intricate detail which everybody missed :)

The connect is Pi(approximation) day which is celebrated on March 14th every year (generally by giving out free pies).

1.  Is a very famous picture of Albert Einstein taken on his 72th birthday( everyone missed this) and his birthday is on March 14th.
2.  Larry Shaw, the dude who started the Pi Day funda
3. Depiction of a solution to Buffon’s Needle problem, called Lazzarini’s estimate, which lets people asymptotically approximate pi by tossing needles on parallel lines. ( Shamelessly flicking srikanth’s answer)

    Pi (approximation) Day – celebrated on March 14th – the second pic is the guy who started the whole concept – Albert Einstein’s birthday is March 14th in a happy coincidence.

    National Pi Day (March 14th)

    1) March 14th (3.14) is also Albert Einstein’s birthday!
    2) Pie…
    3) Buffon’s needle problem: can be solved to get a Monte Carlo method to approximate π.

    Pi Day (March 14th – 3/14, close to 3.1415…)

    1) Einstein’s birthday is on 3/14
    2) Larry Shaw, the dude who started the Pi Day craze
    3) Apparently, the depiction of a solution to Buffon’s Needle problem, called Lazzarini’s estimate, which lets people asymptotically approximate pi by tossing needles on parallel lines.

    Buffon’s Noodle.

    Happy Pi Day !!!
    It is observed on March 14(due to pi being rougly equal to 3.14)which incidentally turns out to be Einstein’s bday too :)

    pi day.. march 14 (3.14).. Einstein was born on pi day…
    the third image is describing Buffon’s needles..
    Buffon’s Needle is one of the oldest problems in the field of geometrical probability. It was first stated in 1777. It involves dropping a needle on a lined sheet of paper and determining the probability of the needle crossing one of the lines on the page. The remarkable result is that the probability is directly related to the value of pi.

    The connect is Pi day

    Pi Day is observed on March 14 (3/14 in American date format), due to pi being equal to roughly 3.14. Sometimes it is celebrated on March 14 at 1:59 p.m. (commonly known as “Pi Minute”). If pi is truncated to seven decimal places, it becomes 3.1415926, making March 14 at 1:59:26 p.m., “Pi Second”. Pi Approximation Day may be observed on any of several dates, most often July 22 (22/7—in European date format—is a popular approximation of π). March 14 also happens to be Albert Einstein’s birthday.

  8. The connection would be pi-day. March the 14th.
    Albert Einstein was born on pi-day.
    Larry Shaw alias “Price of pi” was the founder of pi-day.

    BRILLIANT!!!

    The answer is pi

    1. Albert Einstein – born on march 14 ( 3.14 = pi )
    2. pies
    3. Buffon’s needle problem – probability is pi
