Life of Pi

Life of Pi

by Yann Martel

Life of Pi Part 1, Chapter 29 Summary

How It All Goes Down

  • The family decides to move. Indira Gandhi, the prime minister, basically takes over Pi's home state of Tamil Nadu. (See Literary Devices: Setting for more.)
  • At dinner, Pi's parents announce their destination to Pi and Ravi: Canada. It's like your family telling you that you're moving to Siberia.
