I watched the movie Life of Pi almost two weeks ago, I liked it a lot because of the special affects and the plot itself of course. Today I was reminded about it, but the post is not about the movie and somehow I was not planning telling anything like this today. Yet, in the face of so many bad events around the world, all the news we hear and we get terrified of... I ask, whether God allows all this to happen if he is up there, and if yes, then why?
The "Life of Pi" had its explanation. This boy, sitting in the boat of life, lost his parents and his brother in the storm, when the ship, which was taking them from India towards better life in Canada, sank... Pi (boy's name) survived juts to find himself in a boat surrounded by the wild animals from the same ship. In the end its only he and the tiger left, and in spite of their constant fight for being supreme, they finally unite in order to live further... not knowing if there is an end to this situation ever.
The grown up Pi says that this adventure proved that God exists. However I ask again why one has to suffer in order to remove all the doubts? Why did this imaginative boy have to lose all his family to finally believe... ? I am also referring to the last horrible REAL events in Connecticut and many other which had happened before, here and there...Why? I personally have no answer and I'd not like to make anyone upset, it just disturbs me.
The peaceful scenes from the movie are fascinating and meditative. Our life is not always such, nonetheless.
Sending all the warmth and good wishes to all of you and may your days be easygoing, jolly and beautiful. Have a Merry Christmas/Yule/ or any winter holiday you celebrate!
P.S. The movie is based on the book with same name "Life of Pi" by Yann Martel.
