WHO IS RICHARD PARKER?

FOR THOSE BLOGGERS WHO HAVE SEEN THE ENGLISH MOVIE ‘LIFE OF PI’ 2013, THE CHARACTER ‘RICHARD PARKER’IS NOT UNFAMILIAR TO THEM. HE IS THE FEROCIOUS BENGAL TIGER, CAGED IN A ZOO IN INDIA AND LATER BY PROVIDENCE, HE FINDS HIS ‘FREEDOM’ AFTER A CATASTROPHIC SHIPWRECK BUT HE IS STRANDED AT SEA ON A LIFE BOAT WITH A YOUNG INDIAN BOY, PISCINE PATEL AKA ‘PI.’ TOGETHER, THEY FACE NATURE’S MAJESTIC SPLENDOUR AND FURY ON AN EPIC JOURNEY OF DISCOVERY.

THE MOVIE ‘LIFE OF PI’, THE WINNER OF 4 ACADEMY AWARDS, IS BASED ON THE NOVEL OF THE CANADIAN AUTHOR YANN MARTEL.’LIFE OF PI’. ACCORDING TO YANN MARTEL,THE STORY CAN BE SUMMARIZED IN THREE STATEMENTS-

  1. LIFE IS A STORY
  2. YOU CAN CHOOSE YOUR OWN STORY
  3. A STORY WITH GOD IS THE BETTER STORY

I HAVE READ THE BOOK AND I HAVE WATCHED THE MOVIE MANY TIMES. I CONTINUE TO BE TOTALLY IMPRESSED BY THE BENGAL TIGER, RICHARD PARKER. HE MADE MANY ATTEMPTS TO DEVOUR THE YOUNG BOY, PI ,BUT THE LATTER FOUGHT HIM, FED HIM AND KEPT HIM ALIVE. IN THE END, WHEN THEY DRIFTED ON AN ISLAND, RICHARD PARKER TURNED HIS BACK ON PI AND LEFT HIM WITHOUT SAYING GOOD BYE.
