Q1 :  

In what way is Iswaran an asset to Mahendra?


Answer :

Iswaran cooked for Mahendra, washed his clothes, and chatted with him at night. He would narrate various stories on varied subjects. He also had an amazing ability to produce vegetables and cooking ingredients out of nowhere. He would miraculously cook the most delicious dishes made with fresh vegetables within an hour of arriving at the new workplace. Iswaran was quite attached to Mahendra and followed him to wherever he was posted. Hence, Iswaran was an asset to Mahendra in more ways than one.

Q2 :  

How does Iswaran describe the uprooted tree on the highway? What effect does he want to create in his listeners?


Answer :

Iswaran's descriptions were greatly influenced by the Tamil thrillers he read. When he came across an uprooted tree on the highway, he said very dramatically that the road was deserted and he was all alone. Suddenly, he spotted something that "looked like an enormous bushy beast lying sprawled across the road." He was half-inclined to turn and go back. However, as he came closer, he saw that it was a fallen tree with its dry branches spread out.

Even if he was narrating the smallest of incidents, he tried to introduce suspense and a surprise ending to the story.
