During these chapters we discover Pi’s Childhood. Living at the Pondicherry Zoo, being ridiculed because of his name, Piscine, and living in the shadow of his older brother. Through these chapters and further into the book, I suspect, Pi meets many wise and religious scholars. Through these people he experiences many religions and embraces many of them and keeps an open mind and open heart. At one point in the book Pi is practicing Hindi, Muslim and Christian beliefs and respecting all of them. I believe that Pi’s want for knowledge and accpetance will help him further on. In one of the earlier chapters Pi’s father demonstrates how dangerous tiger’s and any animals are. Pi was at a very impressionable age and so I think this experience will stay and affect Pi”s outlook in later chapeters.
