In the rest of the nation too, the death toll in Dantewada is felt deeply. It’s a cause for immediate shock and anger. Everyone identifies with the grief. But, inevitably, it is a momentary phase. For the people who actually lose their own, it’s permanent. It changes their lives. Forty-four of the dead victims were from Uttar Pradesh. Several of the state’s villages had stories of irreparable loss to tell. It’s as if their inconsolable cries ask that Dantewada never be forgotten.
