Vittachi comments on the 'tragedy' of Western cultures 'lifting' children's stories from Asia and then presenting them in Westernised form. Vittachi particularly features the story of Cinderella, often assumed to be European in origin; Vittachi asserts that it is adapted from a tale by Chinese storyteller Tuan Ch'eng-Shih.
