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.
