  • 'Life of pi'

is an amazing story of a boy, his revolutionary nature of questioning Belief's of Religion and curiosity to find out.

Its interesting how life bring circumstances to our life that we completely change our own nature. The protagonist was taught by his father that animals dont think and what we see in their eyes is the reflection of our own emotions. As it is universally proven that we learn from our own Experience rather than other's words. Same way 'Pi' at first was terrified by the Tiger because of his childhood Devastating memory of the tiger eating Goat but seeing no other alternative he faced him everyday and eventually Hunger overcome Fear and the new secret is revealed and friendship develop between the two because of the sufferings. Boy wanted someone to talk and tiger needed food and both had to stay alive.

Morale of the story comes out of our 'narrow thinking' that gestures must be expressed the way we want. Just because Tiger dint look back at the time of separation, Pi assumed that their friendship was not real. In my opinion animals are not taught to express our Ways.

Its Human invention that merely looking back has become a symbol of 'LOVE and BONDING'. Tiger lived harmoniously on the Boat with Pi and slept in his Lap is enough evidence their Mutual Bonding."If we want that 'Love' must be expressed 'the way we want' then mostly we will be unable to feel It"
