Yummy paye in Lahore for pie-day
Nerds worldwide celebrate March 14th as Pi-Day for obvious reasons, the date (3.14) mimics the irrational and transcendental number used in many mathematical calculations. Pi is the ratio of the circle’s circumference to its diameter. This mathematical constant is used to calculate the area and circumference of a circle.
The essence of Pi has even spilled into the literary world. Pilish is a dialect of English in which the lengths of consecutive words match the digits of the mathematical constant pi (3.14159265358979323846). For instance the sentence: Can I Test A Drink has five words each subsequently containing 3, 1, 4, 1, 5 alphabets which mimic the numbers in pi.
But we celebrate Pi-Day with paayee because pies are too mainstream:
While you can celebrate the magnificence of Pi with a pie, we suggest a more Pakistani alternative- paayee. Indulge in the gelatinous stew made with hoofs served with garma garam naan. If you’re located in Lahore, here are some suggestions for getting your paye on (on pi-day).
