Despite being stuck in the boat with tiger suffering from lack of water and food, full of sorrow and uncertainty about his life he is not loosing hope and trust in life. I have never known a worse physical hell than this putrid taste and past feeling in the mouth, this unbearable pressure at the back of the throat, this sensation that my blood was turning into the thick syrup that barely flowed. Truly, by combination, tiger was nothing. (Martel. Pg.135)
What is real death? Answer can vary in hundreds of opinions and thousand of guesses. Isn’t that really only envious phenomenon that wants to be similar to the beauty of life? Isn’t that only next step to even more beautiful life where we can live in peace and eternity. Again sort of fictional explanation, but perhaps related to crucially important part of Pi’s life, which is religion. Religions and trust in God plays in Pi’s life very essential role. Pi beliefs in three religions put him into the contradiction of common conventions of environment he lives in and his own desire to be part all three of them Hindu, Christianity and Islam. However, the environment that he is surrounded with is not excepting it. “Babu Ghandy said, ‘All religions are true’. I just want to believe in God,” I blurted out and looked down red in the face.”( Martel, pg.69) This moment in Life of Pi touched me as only few others after it. What is religion? Who gave us a right to divide Christ, Vishnu and Mohammed? How can we teach what is right regarding to God and what God likes and dislike? Isn’t every religion a little bit of fiction as a death in man life that we discussed before? I believe and God is big part of myself, but truly said my religion is sometimes struggling and suffering when I see foolishness and hypocrisy of people and religious leaders. As Pi said “Religion is more than rite and ritual. “There is what the rite and ritual stands for.”(Martel, pg.48) God stays in heart and what really matters is not how many time you attend service or if you believe in Christ or Vishnu or Mohammed or in all three of them in the same time. What really mater is good and happiness that they are able to insert into your heart. The reason why religion can seem so hypocritical is the point that people are interpreting God in uncountable and multiple ways and mostly into the ways that are convenient for those or for others. Who give us a right to judge person like Pi? Was it God who wanted to chase away pi from Great Mosque, Church or Hindu Temple or just man foolish rules and doctrines of fictional explanations of religion and God. Once an oaf chased me away from the great Mosque.
