The Why-Why Girl (Kyun-Kyun Ladki) by Mahasweta Devi is a Hindi book about a 10-year-old tribal girl, Moyna, who asks a lot of questions all the time. In her book, the author brings forward her personal experiences from interacting with different tribal groups in West Bengal, like the Shabars. The local postmaster in this story calls Moyna 'the Why-Why Girl' because of her curious nature. While the other members of her tribal group are not worried about their life or poverty, Moyna cannot stop wondering about her condition, which fuels her curiosity. She soon learns from the author, Mahasweta Devi, that there is a solution to all her queries, and that's education. The Why-Why Girl (Kyun-Kyun Ladki) is beautifully illustrated by Kanyika Kini, appealing to both children and adults alike. Apart from the Hindi version (Kyun-Kyun Ladki), the book is also available in Indian languages like Gujarati, Marathi, Kannada, Tamil, and Malayalam. Mahasweta Devi is a renowned Jnanpith award-winning writer and social activist. She draws inspiration from the lives of the oppressed tribal communities of West Bengal, as the people belonging to this section of the society battle poverty and exploitation. Some of her popular works are Aranyer Adhikar, Hajar Churashir Ma, and Agnigarbha.
