Sample text

The Bible describes these battles in general terms, not in detail, as is the case with David and Goliath. The Philistines emerged from their central towns of Gat and Ekron – Gat being identified with Tazpit Hill near today’s Kfar Menachem. At the foot of the hill, the Elah River connects with the Lachish River as it flows 56 westward towards the Mediterranean Sea. Ekron is the present-day Miknah Hill, near Kibbutz Revidim. The Philistines were therefore advancing eastward towards Azekah (Azariya Hill).

The ease with which people pass through days and nights in supreme harmony with God and animals might sound like magical realism for an outsider. Martel has allowed this magic to penetrate his narrative: Pi grows up to discover the world’s major religions and their search for God. His father’s rationality and his mother’s simple faith create a filter for his dreams even while at sea and lost. God speaks to him in his own voice when he lets go of all hope. Even when, towards the end, they pull up to an island where strange trees grow out of mere vegetation and where thousands of meerkats throng and where Pi discovers the carnivorous nature of the island, it is not simply fortuity that lets him slip though, but it is perhaps his own faith that he rediscovers.

Finally, when the Japanese ship company that owned the ship which was drowned refuses to believe 38 in his tale, Pi reinvents another parallel one with humans instead of animals which goes into the records. Perhaps we humans are always afraid of reality; we need to reinvent familiar stuff. This sort of Orwellian double think actually pervades the entire narrative – whether it is that of Yann Martel or the old man, Francis Adirubasamy, or Pi, or Orange Juice, or the zebra and the hyena, or Richard Parker.
