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.

The Glove and the Lion Poem by Leigh Hunt Summary, Notes & Explanation in English

The poem The Glove and the Lion has four stanzas. Six-line stanzas rhyme aa bb cc. 13 feet (?) per line. The poem's setting is far from Hunt's time. The poem's kings, noblemen, and ladies give it a pre-Renaissance feel. Hunt's poem describes an unusual experience. A royal court watches two beast kings battle. Courtiers watch the king's spectacle from comfortable seats. Many of Hunts' poems have a metaphorical secondary meaning, such as a battle between two powerful people. In the midst of the spectacle, the poet shows us Count de Lorge's love affair with a woman. The poet lists values held by his poem's people: pride, gallantry, valour, and love. The second stanza features vivid images. "Rampled and roared" is alliterative and paradoxical ("horrid laughing jaws"). The short verbs show how quickly the beasts moved: "They bit, glared, and gave beam blows." The repeated /w/ sound in "wind went with their paws" emphasi
