The eyes have it is a remarkable story because of the twist at the end. The story begins with the author sitting in a compartment of a train, and soon after, a girl joins him. His only intention was to make sure that the occupant of the compartment shouldn’t be able to guess that he was blind. All his attempts were geared towards that end. He talks in general about the hills of Mussoorie and recalls things from his memories. He even replied to her query about animals as he knew well that very few animals were left in the forest of Dehra. He even neutrally complimented her by telling her she had an interesting face. He was thoroughly enjoying her company and was willing to sit for hours with the girl.
He feels he has successfully pulled off a majestic con by fooling a sighted girl into believing he could see. He feels immensely proud and pats himself on the back for being a god at being blind that even one who can see couldn’t call out his bluff. In the meantime, a passenger walks into his cabin and casually remarks that the previous passenger was blind. This reveal shocks the reader and the author and adds an amazing twist to the simple story.
The author has used auditory imagery to describe the voice of the girl as it seemed to have a sparkle of a mountain stream. The journey soon ended, and she got down.
The author got ready to start the same game with the new passenger. This new occupant tells the author on the enquiry about the length of her hair that more than hair, it was the eyes which got his attention. He declared that she was blind.
This twist makes the reader realise that it was not the author who was trying to hide his blindness, but it was the girl who had managed to conceal her blindness all the way.
