Question:

This story is not an Indian story. But do you think there are fathers, mothers and grandmothers like the ones portrayed in the story in our own country?

Answer:

Though the story does not have Indian background, it can be compared to an Indian story. Indian families also have fathers, mothers and grandmothers like that of Kezia portrayed in the lesson. In this story, the happenings took place just because of the gap of communication among the family members. The girl felt afraid of her father as she did not have enough chances of mixing-up with her father because of his business in work. As we see a lot of such children even in our society where both the father and the mother do their jobs and children become upset. So, their children have to spend the time with grandparents. Such children feel that their parents don’t l have them. And in some cases, if parents are hard, the children avoid making their appearance before them.
