Life of pi by Yann Martel is another life changing book for me , But for some people it is not that much special , But i think this book had something special in it .

You can choose your story , But the story with God is always better story .

So this book starts of with introducing the main character Piscine Mollitol Patel , On how he was named Pi and how he is introduced to Lord Krishna by the stories told by his mom Jyoti Patel ,about different religions and God's of different religions , Pi gets connected to these stories of gods , And decides to become a vegetarian.
