he "Life of Pi" was written by Yann Martel .He was born in 1963 in Salamanca, Spain. His parents were Canadian. They first studied at a university in Spain. Later, they worked in the Canadian Foreign Service. Yann Martel travelled with his parents to Costa Rica, France, Spain, and Mexico in addition to Canada. He studied at Trent University in Ontario where he obtained a degree in philosophy. He speaks French. After his studies, he began writing. For writing "Life of Pi", he was awarded the Man Booker Prize in 2002. He was inspired by a novel with the title "Max and the Cat" and was subsequently accused of plagiarism. In this Chapter, Pi goes out for a walk along the seashore with his parents on Sunday. He meets the three priests, each one representing a religion that he practices: Muslim, Hindu and Christian.

The scene takes place in his native town in Pondichery, more exactly in the esplanade, next to the sea, close to a statue of Gandhi (Gandhi was a lawyer who lives during British Colonisation). La statue était avocat ?

He has adopted three religions because he realizes that people must be on an equal footing: for him, this is a symbolic act. All three religion are of equal importance. When the three priests meet Pi and his family, there is silence because they are astonished. And then, they speak and we learn that for each of them, his religion is the best one. So then, it turns out they aren't on an equal footing after all. All three claim they have the true religion. When a man says something, the following man adds a sentence to insist on what the first man had say before him.
This text is about religion, where we see what each religious group has to say about the other (l.29, 30, 36,85, 90). We see a lot of stereotypes and ideologies about the different religions. People don’t understand why Pi practices different religions.

Pi couldn’t practice three religions at the same time. But for Pi, God is universal; and all religions are important. Anyone can choose the religion he wants to practice. Pi says that for Gandhi, "all the religions are true" He speaks about Gandhi because at this time in India, there are peace and liberation marches throughout India. Gandhi believes that his country can be liberated not by arms, but by pacifist marches. So we can consider Pi a sort of Gandhi who wants to change how people consider the other religions. Pi put all the religions on an equal footing, (as well as stopping: ça n' a pas vraiment le sens que je voulais donner à la phrase)he wants to stop the war between the religions. Gandhi was admired by a great many people. This will be difficult because the three priest are not on an equal footing. Each considers the other's religion a bad religion is no athmosphere of peace between them. Pi’s father is obliged to calm down the three priests: "Gentleman, gentleman, please!" Gandhi(Qui ?) says that people must remember the fact that every religion requires the practice of peace and freedom. This passage is a critique of religion. Conflicts between different religions, represented by the three priests, do not respect the values imposed by their religions: peace and love. All religions must be equally respected. They must fight for peace like Gandhi and not create conflicts.

To conclude, Yann Martel uses Indian's History in his book. Gandhi understood that it was possible to deliver his country by using weapons of peace.What Gandhi does: March for India's Liberation is new.No one before him used this new form of fight ( a utilisé cette nouvelle forme de combat).The world still remembers him. No other political or clerical character has ever accomplished what Gandhi did. Gandhi has been an example for the world. It was Gandhi's methods that inpired Martin Luther King in his struggle for racial integration. One wonders if we wouldn't be better off without religion since its principles are neither respected nor practiced.

The "Life of Pi" was written by Yann Martel .He was born in 1963 in Salamanca, Spain. His parents were Canadian. They first studied at a university in Spain.

For writing "Life of Pi", he was awarded the Man Booker Prize in 2002. He was inspired by a novel with the title "Max and the Cat" and was subsequently accused of plagiarism. In this Chapter, Pi goes out for a walk along the seashore with his parents on Sunday. He meets the three priests, each one representing a religion that he practices: Muslim, Hindu and Christian.

The scene takes place in his native town in Pondichery, more exactly in the esplanade, next to the sea, close to a statue of Gandhi. Gandhi was a lawyer who lived during the time when India was a British colony. He has adopted the three religions because he realizes that people must be on an equal footing: for him, this is a symbolic act. All three religion are of equal importance. When the three priests meet Pi and his family, there is silence because they are astonished. And then, they speak and we learn that for each of them, his religion is the best one. So then, it turns out they aren't on an equal footing after all. All three claim they have the true religion. When a man says something, the following man adds a sentence to insist on what the first man had say before him. <- Cette phrase n'a toujours aucun sens ! Merci de m'expliquer en français ce que tu veux dire.

Gandhi believes that his country can be liberated not by the use of weapons, but by peaceful marches. So we can consider Pi a sort of Gandhi who wants to change how people consider the other religions. Pi put all the religions on an equal footing in the hopes of ending the conflict between the world's religions. This will be difficult because the three priest are not on an equal footing. Each considers the other's religion a bad religion. There is no atmosphere of peace between them. Pi’s father is obliged to calm down the three priests: "Gentleman, gentleman, please!" Gandhi, who was admired by everyone, says that people must remember that every religion requires the practice of peace and freedom. This passage is a critique of religion. Conflicts between different religions, represented by the three priests, do not respect the values imposed by their religions: peace and love. All religions must be equally respected. They must fight for peace like Gandhi and not create conflicts.

To conclude, Yann Martel makes ample use of India's history in his book. Gandhi understood that it was possible to deliver his country by using weapons of peace. Gandhi's strategy was completely different: using non-violent peace marches to attract attention to his cause.(Faut mettre un espace après le point.)No one before him used this new tactic.(Faut mettre un espace après le point.)The world still remembers him. No other political or clerical character has ever accomplished what Gandhi did. Gandhi has been an example for the world. It was Gandhi's methods that inpired Martin Luther King in his struggle for racial integration. One wonders if we wouldn't be better off without religion since its principles are neither respected nor practiced.

When a man says something, an other man added a sentence, insists on what the man had say before he says the following sentence.

Là c'est plus clair non ? C'est ce que la prof nous a fait noter sur le cahier.
.
merci pour ton aide, j'espère que cette phrase est bonne.

Désolé, Rowenna. Maintenant je comprends encore moins qu'auparavant.

Je t'offre ceci :

As the priests learn that Pi is a member of all of their religions, they begin to argue the theological supremacy of their own positions and to tell Pi that he can't be all three.
