Why Can't They? (அவர்களுக்குப் புரியாது)

About Why Can't They? :

This is a story of six year old Aruna, whose mother deserts her. Aruna has to live with her father Vasu, who is drowned in resentment and anger for his wife while her grandmother wallows in self-pity and is burdened by bringing up her grand-daughter. Does anyone care about the little girl, her thoughts, her feelings, her aspirations, likes and dislikes? Can her teachers understand her; her friends; her neighbors?

The author delves deep into the psychology of the lonely and love-deprived child and makes us look at our relationships, the way we bring up our children and what we need to do as adults.
