The dewan himself drove the car straight to the forest where the Maharaja was hunting. When they reached the forest the tiger launched its satyagraha and refused to get out of the car. The dewan was thoroughly exhausted in his efforts to haul the beast out of the car and push it down to the ground. On the following day, the same old tiger wandered into the Maharaja’s presence and stood as if in humble supplication, “Master, what do you command of me?’’ It was with boundless joy that the Maharaja took careful aim at the beast. The tiger fell in a crumpled heap.
Question 4 (2A) i
According to the extract, how is the author's portrayal of the tiger different from real life?
The author shows the dewan dragging the tiger out of the car. He pushes it down like a harmless being which is strikingly different from real life where tigers are dangerous / the author treats the tiger as if it is human and portrays it to be submissive, which is entirely the opposite of its ferocious nature / the author suggests that the tiger is talking which is impossible in real life.
