Introduction

The Accidental Tourist is an amusing story by Bill Bryson who shares his experiences during air travels. He finds himself involved in difficult and embarrassing situations as a tourist. He has a confused personality and is always in troubles. His tendency to cause unintentional accidents makes the story humorous and entertaining. Bill Bryson is a narrator of the story and keeps on committing blunders whenever he is travelling. Bill Bryson’s Wife , narrator’s wife knows that the narrator commits mistakes while travelling. So, she asks her children to help the narrator whenever they are travelling together.

The narrator believed that he is not at all good at living in the real world. He felt amazed at how other people were able to do things so easily which he was unable to perform. He got easily confused. At many times he was unable to find the lavatory (washroom) in a cinema. He also forgets his hotel room number. He goes two or three times in a day at the hotel desk to enquire about the room number.

On Easter, the narrator went to England with his family for a week. On the Logan Airport in Boston, he suddenly remembered that he had a discount card of British Airways frequent flyer programme. The card was kept in the carry on bag. When the narrator tried to open his bag he found that the zip of the bag was jammed. He pulled the zip harder in anger. The zip of bag broke up and all things like tin of pipe tobacco, magazines, passport, papers, money, etc. were spread over a large area. Suddenly, he realised that his finger got injured in the incident and it was bleeding. His wife looked at him with wonder as he had caused so much mess.

The narrator always had mis happenings while travelling in an aeroplane that resulted into inconvenience to many passengers. Once on a flight, the narrator bent to tie his shoelace and someone on the seat ahead of him pushed his seat back. The back of the seat hitted the narrator’s head. He had to hold the leg of the other passenger to manage his position. On another flight, he dropped soft drink on the lady sitting beside him.

The flight attendant helped her clean up and got him another drink. He also dropped the second glass on that lady. He was confused on how it happened. The worst experience on the flight was once happened when the narrator was writing his thoughts in a notebook. He was sucking the other end of the pen from time to time and also talking to a woman seated beside him. After sometime, when he went to the washroom, he saw that the ink had leaked from his pen and made his mouth, teeth, gums and chin navy blue in colour.

The narrator wanted to be suaved (civilised). He wanted to leave the dining table neat and clean. He wanted that whenever he sits in the car, he should not leave the sleeve of his coat stuck in the door. He does not wanted to stain his light coloured trousers by sitting on various things.

On the flight, when narrator’s family was served meals, his wife directed the children to cover their heads with the hood to save themselves from the mess that their father (narrator) would create while eating. To keep himself away from any mishap, the narrator does not eat, drink or bend to tie his shoelaces when he travels alone. He sits very quietly and keeps his hands under him to prevent them from moving. He did not enjoy sitting like that but it helped him saving the laundary expenditure.

The narrator was a frequent traveller but he never got his discount on air miles. He must fly 100,000 miles a year but he had gathered only about 212 air miles from twenty three airlines. The reasons were that sometimes he forgot to ask for air miles or sometimes the airlines did not record them.

Once the narrator was travelling to Australia from which he was going to get about a Zillion air miles. But, he cannot get any discount on miles because the clerk told him that his name on the ticket was B Bryson while the name on the card was W Bryson. Consequently, he does not got any air miles and also he could not travel to Bali in first class.

Short Summary of The Accidental Tourist

The Accidental Tourist is a humorous story in which the author reflects humorously his experiences as a traveller. It is a common opinion among the people that the world today is a small place because travel has become easy, but at the same time it also a fact that not everybody finds it easy to travel.

A number of times he fails to find the washroom in a cinema-hall and ends up standing in an alley of the self-locking door. He also easily forgets the number of his room in a hotel. He feels that living in the real world is perhaps the most difficult thing.

Once on Easter the author went for a trip with his family. They were flying to England for a week. They were checking in at the Logan Airport in Boston. He remembered that he had joined British Airways’ frequent flyer programme and he had put the card in his carry-on bag. It hung around his neck.

The zip on the bag was jammed. He pulled at it with anger. His things like tin of pipe tobacco, magazines, passport, money, etc., spread over a large area. He looked at these things in great surprise. He cursed at his tobacco. He had injured his finger. There was a deep wound. He was confused. His wife looked at him in wonder.

The author was always confused in his air travels and caused confusion to others. Once he bent to tie his shoe lace, someone pushed his seat back, he got pinned to the floor and had to catch the leg of the man near him.

On another occasion he knocked soft drinks on the lap of a lady twice.

His worst experience was when he was writing his thoughts on a plane flight. He had his pen in his mouth. It leaked while he was talking to the lady in the next seat.

The author’s wife cautioned the children on the flight about the author. He would cut the meat but it would fly. But when he was alone he did not eat or drink.

The author did not get his flyers miles in that way as he couldn’t find his card in time. He must fly 1,00,000 miles a year. But he could only gather 212 air miles from twenty-three airlines.

In January he flew to Australia hoping to get about million miles. The airline clerk informed him he was not entitled to them. He asked the reason. The clerk said the ticket was in the name of B. Bryson and the card was in the name of W. Bryson. He explained that Bill and William were hardly different but she didn’t accept that. Thus, the author didn’t get his air miles.

Summary in Hindi

शुरुआत में, लेखक का दावा है कि वह वास्तविक दुनिया में रहने के लिए बहुत अच्छा नहीं है। वह कहता है कि उसे सबसे सरल चीजें करना मुश्किल लगता है जो दूसरे लोग आसानी से करते हैं। उदाहरण के लिए, जब भी वह किसी होटल में रुकता है, तो उसे कई बार होटल के डेस्क पर जाकर यह याद रखना पड़ता है कि उसका कमरा नंबर क्या है। वह सिनेमा हॉल में बहुत सारी मुश्किलों का पता लगाता है। उसका दावा है कि वह आसानी से भ्रमित है।

लेखक ईस्टर के दौरान हुई अपनी अंतिम पारिवारिक यात्रा की कहानी सुनाता है। वे एक सप्ताह के लिए बोस्टन से इंग्लैंड के लिए उड़ान भर रहे थे। बोस्टन में लोगान हवाई अड्डे पर, लेखक को याद आया कि उसने ब्रिटिश एयरवेज के अक्सर उड़ने वाले कार्यक्रम में दाखिला लिया था और वह कार्ड उस बैग में था जिसे वह अपनी गर्दन के चारों ओर ले जा रहा था। यह उसकी परेशानियों की शुरुआत थी।

बैग का ज़िप अटक गया था; लेखक ने इसे और कठिन से कठिन तब तक खींचा जब तक कि बैग का किनारा खुल नहीं गया और इसकी सामग्री फर्श पर बिखरी हुई थी। इनमें लगभग सौ पन्नों के दस्तावेज, उनका पासपोर्ट, अंग्रेजी पैसा, फिल्म और पाइप तंबाकू का 14-औंस टिन शामिल था। वह इस सोच से भयभीत था कि इंग्लैंड में तंबाकू कितना महंगा होगा। फिर उसने देखा कि उसने जिप पर अपनी उंगली काट ली थी और अब उसे काफी खून बह रहा था। सामान्य रूप से रक्तस्राव के साथ असहज होने के कारण, उन्हें लगा कि हिस्टीरिकल होना उचित है क्योंकि यह उनका रक्त था जो बहा रहा था। वह कहता है कि यहां तक ​​कि उसके बाल इतने भ्रमित और असहाय हो गए थे कि वह दहशत में चला गया। इस बिंदु पर, उनकी पत्नी ने शुद्ध आश्चर्य से उनकी ओर देखा: उन्हें यह विश्वास करना कठिन लगा कि उन्होंने जीवन बनाने के लिए यात्रा की थी।

लेखक का कहना है कि जब वह यात्रा करता है तो इस तरह के हादसे अक्सर होते हैं। वह एक हवाई जहाज पर एक घटना को याद करता है, जहां वह ठीक समय पर अपने फावड़े को बांधने के लिए झुका था कि सामने बैठे व्यक्ति ने अपनी सीट को फिर से दबाया था – लेखक दुर्घटना की स्थिति में फंस गया था और केवल पैर के पंजे में खुद को मुक्त करने में कामयाब रहा था यात्री उसके पास बैठा।

वह कहता है कि एक अन्य उड़ान में, उसने अपने बगल में बैठी एक महिला की गोद में एक शीतल पेय गिराया। जब फ्लाइट अटेंडेंट ने उसे दूसरा ड्रिंक सौंपा, तो उसने उसे महिला पर भी थूक दिया। वह कहता है कि उसे अभी भी समझ नहीं आया कि यह कैसे हुआ। उन्हें याद है कि उनके हाथ ने नियंत्रण से बाहर काम किया था – 1950 के दशक की एक डरावनी फिल्म में एक सस्ते prdp की तरह।

लेखक तब अपनी यात्रा के सबसे खराब अनुभव बताता है। एक उड़ान में, लेखक महत्वपूर्ण विचारों को लिख रहा था, और ऐसा करते समय, वह अनुपस्थित-मन से अपनी कलम के अंत में चूस रहा था। फिर उन्होंने लगभग बीस मिनट तक एक आकर्षक युवती के साथ बात की, जिसके बाद उसने टॉयलेट के लिए अपना रास्ता बनाया। वहाँ उसने देखा कि उसकी कलम लीक हो गई थी और उसके मुँह, ठुड्डी, जीभ, दाँत और मसूड़े गहरे नीले रंग के हो गए थे और कई दिनों तक ऐसे ही रहेंगे।

लेखक कबूल करता है कि पॉलिश और परिष्कृत होना उसका सपना है। सिर्फ एक बार के लिए, वह इस पर सब कुछ परेशान किए बिना डिनर टेबल से उठने में सक्षम होना चाहता है; खुद को कार में बैठने के दौरान अपने कोट को ठीक से मोड़ो और दरवाजे को बंद न करें जबकि आधा बाहर हो; और आइसक्रीम, मोटर तेल आदि जैसी चीजों के साथ इसे बिना दागे हल्के रंग का पतलून पहनें। वह कहता है कि अब जब वह अपने परिवार के साथ विमानों पर यात्रा करता है, तो उसकी पत्नी बच्चों से भोजन के बक्से से ढक्कन हटाने के लिए कहती है और उन्हें चेतावनी देती है कि कब वह मांस के टुकड़े काटता है। जब वह अकेले उड़ता है, तो वह न तो खाता है और न ही पीता है। वह बस स्थिर और शांत बैठता है, कभी-कभी अपने हाथों पर उन्हें नियंत्रण से बाहर जाने और दुर्घटनाओं का कारण बनने से रोकता है। उनके अनुसार, यह विधि, उनके कपड़ों को साफ रखने में बहुत प्रभावी है।

भले ही वह एक साल में 100,000 मील की दूरी पर उड़ता है, लेकिन लेखक को कभी भी उड़ता हुआ मील नहीं मिलता है। उसे यह काफी निराशाजनक लगता है, खासकर जब वह लोगों को प्रथम श्रेणी में बाली की तरह विदेशी स्थानों पर उड़ते हुए देखता है, जो अपने फ्लायर मील के लिए धन्यवाद। इसका कारण यह है कि जब वह जाँच करता है तो वह ज्यादातर इसके लिए पूछना भूल जाता है; और जब वह ऐसा करता है, तब भी एयरलाइंस इसे रिकॉर्ड करने में विफल रहती है।

उसे अक्सर यह भी बताया जाता है कि वह किसी भी फ्लायर मील का हकदार नहीं है। उदाहरण के लिए, ऑस्ट्रेलिया के लिए उड़ान पर, वह लगातार उड़ता मील की एक बड़ी संख्या हासिल करने की उम्मीद की थी। अपनी निराशा के लिए, क्लर्क ने उसे बताया कि चूंकि कार्ड एक डब्ल्यू। ब्रायसन के नाम पर है और टिकट बी। ब्रायसन के नाम पर था, इसलिए वह कोई भी मील हासिल करने का हकदार नहीं था। उन्होंने यह समझाने की कोशिश की कि विलियम और बिल का बहुत करीबी रिश्ता है, क्योंकि वे एक ही व्यक्ति हैं, लेकिन क्लर्क ने उन्हें खारिज कर दिया।

लेखक को इस तथ्य से इस्तीफा दे दिया जाता है कि शायद वह जल्द ही बाली से उड़ान नहीं भरेगा; लेकिन इस विचार में सांत्वना पाता है कि वह बिना भोजन के इतनी लंबी उड़ान से बच नहीं सकता था।

The Accidental Tourist

by Anne Tyler

  • The Accidental Tourist Summary

The Accidental Tourist opens with Macon and Sarah Leary driving back home to Baltimore in the rain after a vacation at the beach. When Macon refuses to stop the car, Sarah suddenly announces that she wants a divorce. She accuses Macon of being incapable of comforting her, especially after the tragic murder of their 12-year-old son, Ethan . Macon is surprised. The book then flashes forward to after the couple has separated. Macon tries to adjust to the change, finding it strange to live in their family house all alone. In a somewhat compulsive way, Macon comes up with various "systems" of organization in order to manage the household chores. These habits are highly strange, such as washing the clothes in the bathtub while he showers. Macon, overcome by a grief he won't directly acknowledge, also struggles to keep a normal sleeping and eating routine.

Meanwhile, Macon tries to maintain a regular work schedule. His job is writing travel guides aimed at businessmen who are reluctant to leave their hometown. It is an ironic role for Macon, as he hates traveling and leaving his comfort zone in any way. Macon soon has to leave for a trip to England. Right before his departure, Sarah calls him to ask if she can come by and get her rug. They reveal to each other that they have both been struggling since the separation. On the way to the airport, Macon drops off his dog, Edward , at a kennel, where he strikes up a conversation with a young receptionist named Muriel Pritchett . In England, Macon has difficulty getting his work assignments done and itches to go home. When he returns to Baltimore, he picks up Edward and Muriel Pritchett tells him the dog was well-behaved, subtly flirting with Macon and giving him her business card. Macon can only think about Sarah, and he feels her absence as he walks back into his house with Edward.

Weeks go by and Macon is challenged by completing his England travel book. His boss, Julian, starts to call him, inquiring on his progress, and Macon promises he will have it done in a few weeks. Instead of working, Macon focuses his energy on his household systems, devising ones to ensure that he almost never has to leave the house to do grocery shopping. Despite being invited over for meals by his neighbors, who now know about his separation, Macon declines the gesture, feeling that he can trust no one. Much of his time is spent daydreaming about his former life and what went wrong in his marriage to Sarah. One night, when Macon walks down into his basement, he falls and breaks his leg. He ends up having to stay at his family house, with his sister Rose and his brothers Charles and Porter , while he recovers. We learn more about the Leary siblings and their shared tendency for strange organizational habits. We also learn about their childhood, and how the children were left to live with their grandparents by their volatile mother, Alicia .

Edward the dog increasingly starts acting out, eventually biting Julian when he visits Macon at the family house one day. Macon realizes he must do something about it and remembers Muriel Pritchett's business card. He calls her and they make an appointment to train Edward. At their meeting, Muriel is very forward and reveals many personal details about herself. Macon does not know how to interact with her, continually trying to bring the conversation back to training Edward. They continue with training lessons over the next few days. One night, Macon has a sexual dream about Muriel; the next day, when he sees her for the lesson, he abruptly kisses her and then instantly apologizes for it.

By October, Macon has finally made progress on his travel guide and goes to hand it in at Julian's office. Julian has slowly been hinting at his interest in Macon's sister, Rose, and requests to be invited over for dinner one night. He also asks Macon if he can start working on another U.S. guidebook.

As it turns into winter, Macon is able to remove his cast. Despite his recovery, he is continuing to stay at his family home rather than return to his old house. He takes off to New York City for a work assignment. While there, he goes to review a restaurant on the top of a very tall skyscraper. There, he has an anxiety attack—not only from the height, but also from the feeling of being very small and far away from everyone he loves. He calls his brother Charles for help and discovers that Edward has cornered Charles in the pantry. He has to call Muriel from the top of the building and ask her to go to his house to tame Edward.

The dog lessons continue and Edward shows improvement. Muriel increasingly shows her interest in Macon, which Macon tries to deflect. Muriel invites Macon to come to dinner with her and her 7-year-old son, Alexander , which Macon is unsure about, feeling that he is not ready to start another relationship. He drives to Muriel's house the night before the proposed dinner and tells her about the death of Ethan and his mixed feelings. Muriel comforts him and they end up sleeping together.

Macon starts to spend more and more time with Muriel, staying over at her house and becoming a surrogate father for the sickly Alexander. He enjoys settling into this new routine and the strange and foreign atmosphere of Muriel's working-class neighborhood. At the same time, he begins to notice more of Muriel's quirks that annoy him, such as her relentless talking and superficial interests. Macon's siblings start to become concerned that he is spending so much time away from them, wondering whether this new relationship is good for him. Macon finds out from Julian that he plans on proposing to Rose on Christmas.

Muriel and Macon's relationship progresses, with him meeting her parents and ingraining himself into her life more and more until he is practically spending all his time with her. Macon brings Muriel as his date to his sister Rose's wedding. There, he realizes the similarity between the flakiness of his mother, Alicia, and Muriel's own flightiness. Sarah is also at the wedding, and Macon is curious to learn if she has been dating anyone else. His concern with this makes him recognize his lingering feelings for his ex-wife.

In the following months, Muriel starts to pressure Macon to show more commitment to her. She requests to marry him in June, to which Macon replies that he's not ready, wanting to keep things more casual. She also begs to accompany him on his business trip to France, but Macon declines. Muriel suspects that Macon wants to leave her to go back to Sarah. Their two different attitudes to the relationship lead to the relationship's rupture, with Macon going back to live in his old house with Sarah. Macon and Sarah try to resume their former relationship, going on errands and seeing their friends together, but something has clearly changed between them.

When Macon is departing on his flight to Paris, he is startled to discover that Muriel is on the same plane. She has found out his travel information and has booked the same tickets, desperate to renew her connection with him. Macon allows her to follow him around to some degree in Paris, although he has committed to Sarah. One night, he hurts his back and is resigned to bed, unable to complete his assignments. Sarah shows up in Macon's hotel to take care of him while he is bedridden. She, of course, discovers Muriel's presence, and Macon must make a final choice between the two women. Considering how he has never been able to make his own choices in life, feeling always overwhelmed by the chaos of life around him, Macon chooses to leave behind the past and be with Muriel.

CBSE Class 9 English The Accidental Tourist Summary

The Accidental Tourist is an entertaining story written by Bill Bryson where he reflects on his travel experiences humorously. He casually describes the various incidents that took place while he was travelling to different places. He often acts clumsily and finds it difficult to manage his things systematically. He wonders how other people do their regular work easily without any difficulty. A couple of times, he failed to locate the washroom in the movie theatre and ends up standing in a narrow passage of the door that locks by itself. He has a hard time living a normal life like other people and wonders how others do it so effortlessly.

Once the author was travelling to England with his family during Easter. After reaching at Logan Airport in Boston while they were checking in, he abruptly remembers that he had joined the British Airways’ frequent flyer programme. He recollected that he had put the card in the carry-on bag that was dangling around his neck. When he tried opening the bag, the zip was clogged and he exerted pressure to open it. In the process, the zip snapped and everything that was kept inside the bag started spilling all over the place. Meanwhile, the author also noticed that his finger was injured and trapped in the zip. He was terrified at the sight that his finger was bleeding extensively.

Further, the author mentions the unexpected troubles that he encounters while travelling. In one such instance while travelling in an aeroplane, he leaned over to tie his shoelace. Unfortunately, he was stuck when the person sitting ahead of him fully reclined his seat. With great difficulty, he freed himself from that cramped position. On another instance, he spilled some soft drink on his co-passenger. Although the flight attendant cleaned up the mess, the author spilled another drink on the same passenger again. The lady was completely drenched and annoyed at the author for the inconvenience caused to her.

However, his worst experience in a flight was when he was writing in a notebook and he sucked on the tip of the pen. At that time he was also talking to a lady. Later when he went to the washroom, he saw that the pen had leaked unknowingly and ended up colouring his teeth, tongue and mouth in blue colour ink. He ended up feeling awkward for being so clumsy. Although the author is a gentleman, he always ends up in some cumbersome situation. His wife was well aware of his clumsiness. So, whenever food was delivered in the flight, she would instruct her children to remove the lid off the food for their father so that they can avoid any mishap from happening.

Nonetheless, the author clarifies that such unforeseen situations occur particularly when he is travelling with his family. Whenever he travels alone, things work perfectly as he quietly sits on his seat and avoids tying his shoelaces if required. He avoids making mistakes while he is travelling on his own. He admits that he has been careless in updating his frequent flyer card due to time constraint. On multiple occasions, he either forgot to request the air miles from the airlines authorities or sometimes the airline didn’t record it on time. Furthermore, he mentions that there were instances when the airline informed him that he was not entitled to use air miles. Once due to a mismatch in his name on the ticket, he could not use his air miles and was left ineligible to travel to Bali on a first class ticket.

Conclusion of The Accidental Tourist

The chapter – The Accidental Tourist teaches students that it is important to be organised and systematic in our lives, especially while travelling. We should be well-prepared otherwise we are likely to encounter unexpected mishaps like the author.

Summary Of The Accidental Tourist English Class 9

लेखक का भुलक्कड़पन लेखक पाता है कि वास्तविक संसार में जीवित रहना काफी विशिष्ट है। दूसरे व्यक्ति बिना किसी कठिनाई के कार्य कर लेते हैं। परन्तु वह ऐसा नहीं कर सकता। कई बार वह सिनेमाघर में शौचालय नहीं पा सका। एक होटल में वह अपने कमरे का नम्बर भी भूल गया।

लेखक द्वारा ऐयरपोर्ट में गड़बड़ी उत्पन्न करना एक बार लेखक अपने परिवार के साथ बड़े दौरे पर गया। ईस्टर का अवसर था। वे एक सप्ताह के लिए इंग्लैण्ड़ जा रहे थे। वे बोस्टन में लोगन हवाई अड्डे में प्रविष्ट हो रहे थे। उसे उस समय ध्यान आया कि वह तभी-तभी ब्रिटिश ऐयरवेज के बार-बार उड्ने के प्रोग्राम में सम्मिलित हुआ था। उसे यह भी याद आया कि उसने कार्ड को अपने बैग में रख दिया था। यह उसकी गर्दन के चारों तरफ लटका हुआ था।

लेखक के बैग का सामान बाहर बैग की जिप जाम हो गई थी। वह गुस्सा हुआ। उसने इसे गुस्से में खींचा। जिप खुल गई। उसकी चीजें जैसे पाईप तम्बाकू का टिन, मैगजीन, पासपोर्ट, धन आदि काफी दूर तक बिखर गई थीं। उसने इन चीजों को अत्यधिक आश्चर्य से देखा। वह अपने तम्बाकू पर चिल्लाया। उसकी उंगली घायल हो गई थी। उससे खून बह रहा था। घाव गहरा था। वह काफी परेशान था। उसकी पत्नी ने उस पर आश्चर्य से देखा।

Summary Of Accidental Tourist English Class 9

लेखक का फर्श पर लगना लेखक हमेशा हवाई यात्राओं में परेशान हो जाता था। वह दूसरे यात्रियों के लिये भारी परेशानियाँ उत्पन्न कर देता था। एक बार वह जूते के फीते बांधने के लिये नीचे झुका। तब किसी ने अपनी सीट पीछे धकेली। वह फर्श पर लग गया। उसे अपने समीप एक व्यक्ति की टांग पकड़नी पड़ी।

लेखक का एक महिला पर डिंक बिखेरना एक दूसरे अवसर पर उसने एक महिला की झोली में दो बार ड्रिक बिखेर दी। महिला ने उस पर आचर्य से देखा। उसने ‘ओह’ कह कर एक कसम ली। यह उसका बुरे से बुरा अनुभव नहीं था।

जब उड़ान के समय पैन लीक कर गया। उसका बुरे से बुरा अनुभव दूसरा था। वायुयान की उड़ान में वह अपने विचार लिख रहा था। उसके मुँह में उसका पैन था। यह लीक कर गया जब वह अगली सीट पर बैठी महिला से बातें करने लग गया। वह शौचालय गया। उसने देखा कि उसका मुँह, ठोड़ी, जीभ, दाँत और मसूढे नेवी के नीले रंग जैसे हो गये थे।

वह कैसे उड़ा लेखक की पत्नी लेखक के बारे में उड़ानों के दौरान बच्चों को सावधान कर देती थी। वह मांस काटता था। परन्तु यह उड़ जाता था। परन्तु जब वह अकेला होता था तो वह न खाता न पीता था। वह चुपचाप बैठता था। इससे उसके कपड़े धोने के बिल कम हो जाते थे।

वह उड़ान मीलों को इकट्ठा क्यों नहीं कर सका। उस अवस्था में लेखक को उड़ान मीलें प्राप्त नहीं हो सकीं। उसे समय पर कार्ड नहीं मिल सका। वह जानता था कि दूसरे अपने हवाई मीलों के साथ बाली तक प्रथम श्रेणी उड़ान भर रहे थे। परन्तु उसे कुछ भी नहीं मिला। उसे एक वर्ष में 100,000 मील उड़ना चाहिए। परन्तु उसे कठिनाई से 23 ऐयरलाईनों से 212 हवाई मील ही प्राप्त हुए।

यह इसलिये था कि वह हवाई मीलों के लिये पूछना भूल गया था। कभी-कभी ऐयरलाईन ने इन्हें लिखा भी नहीं था। ऐयरलाईन क्लर्क ने उसे बताया कि वह उनके लिये योग्य भी नहीं था।

The Accidental Tourist Class 9 In Hindi

मील इकट्ठा न होने का कारण जनवरी में वह आस्ट्रेलिया तक उड़ा। उसे खरब से ज्यादा हवाई मील प्राप्त होने की आशा थी। परन्तु क्लर्क ने उसे बताया कि वह इसके लिये अधिकृत नहीं था। उसने कारण पूछा। क्लर्क ने बताया कि टिकट बी. ब्रायसन के नाम में था। परन्तु कार्ड डब्ल्यू. ब्रायसन के नाम में था। उसने बताया कि बिल और विलियम एक ही थे। परन्तु उसने इसे स्वीकारा नहीं।

मील इकट्ठा न होने का परिणाम इस प्रकार लेखक को हवाई मील प्राप्त नहीं हुए। वह प्रथम श्रेणी बाली नहीं उड़ सकेगा। वह इतनी लम्बी हवाई यात्रा बिना खाये कभी भी नहीं कर सकता था।

The Accidental Tourist Summary | English Literature for Grade 9 PDF Download

Bill Bryson was a frequent air traveller. He finds himself always uneasy during his air travels. In this lesson, the author describes some of his experiences during these travels. He says that once he was going to England with his family. He had a carry-on bag with him. The trouble started at the airport when the checking staff asked him to open the bag. He tried hard to open the zip of the bag but it would not open. He pulled it harder and it broke. All the things in the bag were discharged like a fluttery cascade. The newspaper cuttings, other documents, the tin of pipe tobacco, magazines, passport and coins all spread over an area about the size of a tennis court. Then he describes his another experience. He says that once on an aeroplane, he leaned over to tie a shoelace. Just at the moment someone in the seat ahead of him threw his seat back into full recline and found himself pinned helplessly in the crash position. It was only by clawing the leg of the man sitting next to him that he managed to get himself freed. On another occasion, he knocked a soft drink onto the lap of a lady. He repeated this mischief many times. But it was not his worst experience on the aeroplane. He says that his worst experience took place on a plane flight. He says that he was writing something in a notebook. lie fell into conversation with an attractive young lady in the next seat. He was sucking his pen on one of the ends. After about 20 minutes, when he went to lavatory he discovered that the pen had leaked and that his mouth, chin, tongue, teeth and gums were now navy blue and would remain so for several days. Despite being a frequent flyer he never got any air card. Ile says that he used to fly 100,000 miles a year but due to his carelessness or some other reasons he could get no air card.

Summary (2)

The writer’s job demands him to tour a lot but he finds it difficult to behave as per the social code of conduct required in the real world. He is amazed to see other people carry on the routine tasks with ease because he cannot even find the lavatory in a cinema or remember his room number in a hotel. He recalls an episode when he had travelled with his family to England at Easter and had arrived at Logan Airport in Boston. At check-in, he remembered that he had recently joined the British Airways’ frequent flyer programme and the card for that same was in his carry-on bag. However, while attempting to open the jammed zip of his bag, the side flew open suddenly and all the contents littered over a huge area. Bryson watched dumbstruck and was more worried about losing his tobacco that had spilt from its tin-box than clearing away the mess he had accidentally created. He had also clumsily cut his finger on the zip and went hysterical on seeing his blood. Bryson admits that travelling is catastrophic for him. Recounting another experience he writes how he had got himself pinned in a crash position in a plane while tying shoelaces. He had leaned forward when the person ahead of him threw back his seat into full recline. He could free himself only by clawing the leg of the man sitting next to him. On another occasion, he had knocked off a soft drink onto the lap of a sweet little lady sitting beside him. This lady was a nun and Bryson spilt even the replaced drink brought by the flight attendant. However, his worst experience was when he sucked on the end of his pen with which he was writing something. The pen leaked and without realizing that the ink had smeared his mouth, chin, cheek, teeth, and gums, Bryson entered into a conversation with his attractive co-passenger. He tried to impress her by telling jokes and discovered his ink-smudged mouth only twenty minutes later when he went to the lavatory. Bryson’s desire to be charming always fails. He wishes to function normally at least once. He wants to eat properly, get in the car nicely, and carry off a light-coloured trouser without messing it up. In order to avoid accidents while travelling, his wife has now instructed his children to open the lids off the food for him. But when he is alone, he does not eat or drink as a precaution. He sits just still and controls his hands lest they cause another spilling. However, he does miss the fun because of his accidents. Bryson also misses the opportunity to avail flyer miles like other people. Whenever he tries to gain this benefit, he either misplaces his card or forgets to ask at the time of check-in. Even the airlines cannot grant him free flying miles as his name on the card and his ticket do not match. Of course, in view of Bryson’s careless nature, all this is possible.

Summary (3)

“The Accidental Tourist’ is a humorous story. The author, Bill Bryson, narrates his experiences as an air traveller. There were many things that he could not do properly. He was a confused person. He goes many times to find the lavatory in a cinema but ends up standing in an alley on the wrong side of self-locking door. He often forgets the number of his hotel room and goes two to three times a day at the hotel reception to inquire about it. Once he went to England with his family for a week on Easter. At the airport, he remembered that he had a discount card in his carry bag. He tried to open the bag and pulled the zip harder. The zip broke and the bag opened abruptly. Everything in his bag rained out and spread here and there. His wife was shocked to find her husband so absent-minded. He had many such experiences while on board. Once he found himself helplessly in the crash position when he leaned over to tie his shoelaces and someone in the seat ahead of him threw his seat back into full recline. On another occasion, he knocked soft drinks into the lap of a lady sitting beside him. The worst experience he had was when he got his mouth, chin, gums and tongue blue coloured. He was writing some thoughts on a sheet of paper. He fell into conversation with a lady sitting next to him. He had put his pen in his mouth. It leaked and his mouth was covered with ink. He did not realise it until he went to the lavatory. The narrator was so fed up with the eating habits that he preferred not to eat while on board. His wife used to take some precautions. She told the children to take the lid off the food for daddy or put their hoods up when daddy cut his meat. He often forgot to ask for air miles. He could never take benefits from the discount schemes. It was his state of mind that he missed a golden opportunity to avail himself of a first-class flight to Bali.

Access NCERT Solutions for English Chapter 9– The Accidental Tourist

Chapter 9, ‘The Accidental Tourist’ from English Moments Class 9 English is part of NCERT Solutions which provides detailed answers to all of the questions.

1. Bill Bryson says, “I Am, in Short, Easily Confused.” What examples has he given to justify this?

Ans: Bill Bryson's journeys were never pleasant. Bill Bryson can't go about his daily business without generating a mesh. He was easily perplexed. He gave an example of being unable to find a restroom in a movie theatre and eventually found himself standing near a self-locking door. He frequently forgets how to get to the restroom. Another example is when he inquired about his room number several times a day at the motels. He has trouble remembering his hotel room number. He can forget practically everything that is required to carry out our daily activities. Most of us seldom think about how effortlessly we go about our daily lives. It's all programmed into our heads. However, certain people, such as Bill Bryson, find it difficult, if not impossible, to do so.

2. What happens when the zip on his carry-on bag gives way?

Ans: In that situation, the author became extremely perplexed. When the zip on his carry-on bag broke, everything inside spilled out all over the place. Newspaper clippings, loose documents, tobacco packets, periodicals, passports, English money, and film were strewn on the floor. The zip irritates his fingertips. He's in a lot of pain, and he's bleeding a lot. All of the items in his suitcase are flying across the airport's waiting room floor. He appears to be mocking himself and has a civilized way of behaving in a specific location.

3. Why is his finger bleeding? What is his wife’s reaction?

Ans: While attempting to pull the zip with force, his finger gashed and began to bleed. His finger has become stuck in the zip of his bag, causing him pain. His wife is astounded at how he has wreaked havoc all around him. “I can't believe you do this for a living,” his wife exclaimed, looking at him in wonder.

4. How does Bill Bryson end up in a “Crash Position” in the aircraft?

Ans: Someone in the seat ahead of him threw his seat back as soon as he leaned over for this purpose. Bill Bryson once leaned forward, stooping to tie his shoelaces while on an airplane. Meanwhile, the individual in the seat in front of him reclines his seat. As a result, he is unable to move from the kneel-down position and finds himself in a "crash position." Certain folks seem to have an uncanny ability to always end up in an unpleasant situation.

5. Why are his teeth and gums navy blue?

Ans: With him, strange things used to happen. It was the worst experience he'd ever had. While writing crucial thoughts, he was nibbling on his pen while analyzing his writing. He was engrossed in a conversation with a lovely lady and failed to notice the leak in the pen. He was so negligent that the ink got into his mouth and he didn't even realize it. It took him a little longer to win over the lady seated next to him. It was also enough time for the ink to demonstrate the strange effect in his mouth. His teeth and gums were navy blue when he went to the bathroom.

6. Bill Bryson “Ached To Be Suave”. Is he successful in his mission? List his ‘Unsuave’ ways.

Ans: It is evident that Bill Bryson yearned to be sassy. In his mission, he fails miserably. He got into a car and shut the door without leaving 14 inches of coat outside, and wore light-coloured trousers without realizing at the end of the day that he had sat on chewing gum, ice cream, cough syrup, and motor oil at various moments. In public areas, there are unwritten standards that govern how we should act. You should, for example, know good dining table etiquette. Burping in public is considered uncivilized. While eating, avoid making chomping noises. The list goes on and on. While following these principles, Bill Bryson was always involved in some form of mishap. He would always make chicken chunks fly after slicing them with his fork. If he opened the lid of something tasty, he'd probably spray it all over his clothes.

7. Why do you think Bill Bryson’s wife says to the children, “Take the Lids off the Food for Daddy”?

Ans: Bill Bryson's wife was aware of her husband's travel habits. His wife was well aware of his proclivity for wreaking havoc on others. She asked her children to undertake routine chores for their father as a precaution. She says, "Take the lids off the food for Daddy," to avoid any embarrassing situations, because she didn't like her husband's method of taking the lid off the meal.

8. What is the significance of the title?

Ans: The title has a lot of weight. After reading the entire story, it is clear that Bill Bryson is The Accidental Tourist. There are other cases like these that demonstrate the title's appropriateness. The title itself alludes to the author's several unusual and unintentional events. The main character in this story is prone to making minor blunders. This can cause discomfort to other people, especially during a tour. Consider yourself seated in a railway window seat, admiring the magnificent countryside outside. Then someone on the upper deck spills his favorite curry, ruining your nice shirt as well as your mood. Those kinds of people are down at ease in their own homes. The title "The Accidental Tourist" is appropriate given the way he creates mishaps.

Think about it

Question 1. Bill Bryson says, “I am, in short, easily confused.” What examples has he given to justify this?

Answer: Bill Bryson says, “I am, in short, easily confused.” He gives some examples to justify the said statement.

He tells that his particular specialty was returning to hotel desks two or three times a day and asking what his room number was.

Question 2 . What happens when the zip on his carry-on bag gives way?

Answer: The side of the bag flew open and everything within was extravagantly ejected over – newspaper cuttings and other loose papers, a 14- ounce tin of pipe tobacco, magazines, passport, English money, and film. His documents came falling down, coins bounced onto the floor and his fingers began to bleed as he had gashed his finger on the zip.

Question 3 . Why is his finger bleeding? What is his wife’s reaction?

Answer: Once, on an airplane, the author leaned over to tie a shoelace. At the same moment, someone in the seat ahead of him threw his seat back into full recline.

Answer: No, he is not successful in his mission to be suave. He does a lot of things in unsuave ways. He would rise from dinner tables looking as if he has just experienced an extremely localized seismic event, get in a car and close the door leaving 14 inches of coat outside, wear light-coloured trousers discovering at the end of the day that he has sat various times on chewing gum, ice cream, cough syrup and motor oil.

Question 7 . Why do you think Bill Bryson’s wife says to the children, “Take the lids off the food for Daddy”?

Answer: Bill Bryson’s wife says to the children, “Take the lids off the food for Daddy,” because she is afraid that if Bill takes off the lids, he might create another awkward situation. She knew that such situations kept happening with her husband quite often, especially when he travelled.

Question 8 . What is the significance of the title?

Answer: The title ‘The Accidental Tourist’ is very precise and significant. The author, in his entire story, gives numerous instances which prove him to be an accidental tourist. He is a tourist who keeps facing humourous accidents and troubles. He travels a lot and yet makes undeliberate mistakes while doing things that others do without any evident difficulty.

The Accidental Tourist Short Summary in English

Table of Contents

Introduction

Travelling is a nightmare for the narrator who always messes things up while travelling.

Travelling Mess

The narrator feels surprised by seeing people do things that he cannot. He is forgetful and confused all the time. One day, when the narrator went on a trip to England along with his family. He had come to know that he has joined the frequent flyer club.

While trying to tuck the card in, the bag zipper gave up, and everything ejected out of the bag. The narrator’s finger was stuck in the zipper, and blood was oozing out. The narrator always had a catastrophe while travelling.

Stupidity or Misfortune?

On another occasion, the narrator once spilt a soft drink on a lady sitting beside him. When the attendant came and cleaned her up, the narrator spilt the drink again. He felt humiliated and had to hear some of the most gruesome abuses. But according to the narrator, this was not the worst thing that he had experienced on a plane.

Once, while talking to a beautiful lady, he had this tip of his pen in his mouth, and it happened so that the pen had leaked and blue ink was scattered all over his mouth and face. Every daily life event had left an indelible mark on his personality because he had never completed a task without messing things up.

Different Names

The narrator could never use his frequent flyer card because he would forget his card or forget to claim the benefits to the concerned authorities. One day, when he remembered his card, the attendant refused to give him the benefits as the card and the ticket had different names on them. It was an absolute misfortune for the narrator.
