HI,Abhisek, You can see parts of a real image without a screen, and only from a limited range of angles. The light rays from the lens have to reach your eye directly, and your area of view is limited by the aperture of the lens. You can see a complete image only by using a screen, which scatters the light so it is visible from a wide angle.

Thanks for the clarification. It seems our textbook dooms us.
