Q2 – What According to the narrator, is the difference between people with good eyesight and people with no or limited eyesight?

Answer: The narrator believes that the true beauty of life cannot be envisioned only by mere eyesight as the eyesight often fails to capture the real beauty of nature at certain times. With the proper eyesight people tend to differentiate the beauty as they are spoilt for choices with abundant beauty right in front of them and often failed to see the circumstances as a whole as they can’t put up with the pressure of the fast paced life.

They are the part of the rat race whereas the blind people’s mind can only capture the essentials which are powered by other senses and sense of imagination. This is the great lesson of blindness the narrator has learnt through his own experience of life.

Q3 – ‘Then I made a mistake’ – What was the mistake? Why was it a mistake? How did the speaker rectify his mistake?

Answer: The narrator of the tale ‘The Eyes Have It’ befriended with a girl who got into the same compartment while he was on his way to Mussourie and he consciously concealed his visual problem and made a pretence to see.

In the midst of their conversation unmindfully he threw a question “What is it like outside?” which made him realize his mistake soon.

To him, it was a great mistake as he felt that it would bare his truth rather trickery in front of her.
Soon the speaker’s doubts and fears melted away when the girl asked him to look out of the window himself and the speaker moved effectively along the billet and felt for the window sill.

Q4 – You must be disappointed’ – who was the speaker? Why did he say so? Was he appropriate in judging the mind of the narrator?
