The ones who have read 'Life of Pi' will never forget the way Richard Parker is introduced! Nor will we forget how he got his name! We never get the slightest thought that Parker is a tiger! After watching Pi, Gauri and I had an interesting conversation this weekend.
Gauri: Amma, Tiger is a ferocious animal, rt?
Me: Yeah , Of Course!
Gauri: But, did you notice how Richard Parker behaved well with Pi? Ain't that a bit difficult to take as real?
Me: Did you really notice that Richard Parker was ferocious when they started the voyage and then turned mild as the the voyage progressed?
Me: Can you say why?
Gauri: Yeah, Pi was taking care of him, gave him food and they co-operated well!
Me: Great! So what is the moral of the story?
Gauri: If I obey what you say, you will also obey what I say!!!!!
