Question:

How does he narrate the story of the tusker ? Does it appear to be plausible ?

Answer:

Iswaran narrated the story of the tusker exaggeratedly. The Tusker, having escaped from the timber yard. stamped on bushes, tore up wild creepers and broke the branches at his will. The elephant became uncontrollable and entered the school ground. It created chaos there. Everyone in the school tried to escape. No one dared to face the tusker. In the meantime, Iswaran took a cane from a teacher and moved towards the elephant. He hit his third toenail and the beast collapsed. He claimed that he had used the Japanese art to control the tusker. But the story seems totally implausible as it is very difficult to believe that a child can control a mad elephant.
