These are the stories published on thalaikoothal, a traditional practice followed in down south districts of Tamil Nadu by which family members kill their elderly parents. My stories brought the issue to the light and the government took action to bring the practice to an end. With the help of voluntary organisations, elders in Virudhunagar district have now formed self help groups to guard themselves from errant children and fight for their rights.
