Krishnakanth Pai B ( Who goes by "Pi") is an undergraduate student of Mechanical Engineering at Vidyavardhaka College of Engineering. He was born on 23rd October, 2000 in Tirthahalli.

His Primary and Secondary High school journey was rather interesting as he stood out from the crowd and always asked the questions others were afraid to ask. He was the Captain of his school and also a National Level Participant in Spell Bee. His hobbies include writing poetry and singing. He holds a junior level certification in drawing and has passed various examinations in Hindi Language Proficiency.

He believes one who is curious about the ways of the world always finds his/her answer through science. Mankind's ability to question intrigues him the most. He lives by the quote "The man who asks a question is a fool for a minute, the man who does not is a fool for life" (Confucius).
