From Rana Dasupta's Capital

"You think that there are certain primordial events that eclipse all others.You think, for instance, that no suffering can be so great as that of a parent who lost a child. But there are things that are even worse, forms of suffering so great that they harden people even to the death of their children. And you can see them everywhere in the country." a psychologist involved in counselling the parents of the Nithari victims, after recounting that some parents said "If we had known there would be 5 lakhs for a dead child, we would have sent two children"
P.S. At the top of page 330, Rana Dasgupta says "Indira's adored eldest son, Sanjay."
