Of Pintu and π!

This Pi Day (3/14, as our American friends write it), we’re celebrating with a book that introduces children to the fascinating constant of π.

It isn’t easy for Pintu, the new boy in school, to break into existing groups of classmates – they all have circles of their own. So, he turns to another old friend of his: Numbers! Numbers, that, in turn, lead him to a new Maths teacher, and the endless mystery of π.

Read all about it in How Pintu Found Pi, written by Sarat Talluri Rao, illustrated by Aratrika Choudhury, and published on World Pi Day, 2019!

Pintu is lonely in his new school. Whenever he approaches his classmates, they form a closed circle. Then Pintu finds Pi.
