The Eyes Are Not Here By Ruskin Bond Short Summary

 A short story written by Ruskin Bond titled "The Eyes are Not Here." This piece of writing is both lovely and delightful. The author told the tale in the first-person point of view.

The narrator was a young man who was unable to see. He was going to Dehra at the time. A young girl travelled alone on board the train. The author paid close attention to the safety instructions that had been given to her by her parents. The narrator became familiar with the young lady and eventually asked her where she was going. 

She informed him that she would disembark at Shahrampur, which was only a little more than two hours away. The author went to great lengths to conceal the fact that he was blind, taking all necessary precautions. He praised the young lady by remarking that she had a unique appearance to her face. 

She was ecstatic to hear such a compliment because everyone else had told her that she had a pretty face. The author found himself drawn to her by her lilting tone and the heady perfume that wafted from her locks.

When the girl was about to leave, he had the urge to run his fingers through her hair. However, his sense of modesty stopped him from doing so. Following her exit, another passenger boarded the train and took her place. The person who had just been introduced was questioned by the narrator about the length of the girl's hair. 

The newly acquired traveller responded that he had only noticed the passenger's eyes and not her hair. He went on to say that although she had beautiful eyes, they were of no use to her in any way. This indicated that the girl had the same vision problem. The turn of events, which was extremely moving, was the climax of the story.
