Databases offer numerous functionalities by which one can manage large amounts of information easily over the web, and high-volume data input and output over a typical file such as a text file. SQL is a query language and is very popular in databases. Many websites use MySQL. SQLite is a “light” version that works over syntax very much similar to SQL.
SQLite is a self-contained, high-reliability, embedded, full-featured, public-domain, SQL database engine. It is the most used database engine in the world wide web.
Python has a library to access SQLite databases, called sqlite3, intended for working with this database which has been included with Python package since version 2.5.
In this article we will discuss, how to query database using commands like Update and Delete and also to visualize data via graphs.

Updation and Deletion Operation
Total number of rows updated : 1 (u'B113053', u'Geek', u'2017-01-11 13:53:39', 21.0), (u'B113058', u'Saan', u'2017-01-11 13:53:39', 21.0), (u'B113059', u'Sam', u'2017-01-11 13:53:39', 22.0)
Total number of rows deleted : 1 (u'B113053', u'Geek', u'2017-01-11 13:53:39', 21.0), (u'B113059', u'Sam', u'2017-01-11 13:53:39', 22.0)
Data input by User
(u'Navin', 34, 113053) (u'Basu', 42, 113058) (u'Firoz', 65, 113059) (u'Tim', 47, 113060) (u'Varun', 54, 113061)
Graphing with SQLite
In this way we can perform such operations using SQL query to communicate with Database and plot a Graph significantly to draw out its characteristic.
