The story ‘Iswaran, the Storyteller’, is about a master storyteller, Iswaran who narrates stories so effectively that people start believing them to be true. This story tells us about his relation with his master Mahendra, and how Iswaran’s stories impact him.
The story drives home the fact that believing in stories without verifying facts can sometimes go against one’s expectations. Like, in the case of Mahendra, he simply believed Iswaran’s story about a female ghost and without confirming the truth, he resigned from his job. Also, we have the message that supernatural events are indeed a figment of one’s imagination. It is sheer foolishness to believe in ghosts and spirits unless we have solid proof of its existence.
