Summary

Life of Pi Part 1, Chapter 20 Summary Page 1

How It All Goes Down

  • Pi tells us the name of the baker: Satish Kumar. And yes, this is the second Mr. Kumar of the novel.
  • The two new buddies pray together at the bakery. One time after leaving, Pi has an ecstatic experience: all of a sudden the world is pulsing with energy and peace.
  • Pi also relates another religious experience, this one years later in Canada. It's winter. He sees the Virgin Mary in the woods. (On its own, this is exceptional but keep Pi's vision in mind for Part 2, Chapter 42.)
