Life of Pi
by Yann Martel
Life of Pi Part 1, Chapter 27 Summary
How It All Goes Down
- Pi overhears all this. His mother and father are having a little tiff over who gave Pi permission to buy a prayer rug, etc.
- Pi's father underscores his belief in progress and the New India. (See "Setting" for more.)
- Pi's mother defends him. As they enumerate Pi's religious devotions, they loosen up. They even have a good laugh about the boy in the end.
