Ritu Jain and Rakesh Bhansali had their second child on April 25. Bhansali, a Delhi-based stock trader, says that when the first child was born six years ago, there was no worry. “But today,” says the visibly worried father, “I have to worry about every little thing. Even the packet of milk that I bring home has to be doused with hot water.” Bhansali, a native of Rajasthan’s Nagaur, continues in the same breath: “You don’t know what is going to happen tomorrow. The fear is constantly there…I can’t even be happy with all my heart; it just feels incomplete.” That sense of carefree completion would only come from normality, a state of being the world waits for.

“You don’t know what is going to happen tomorrow. The fear is constantly there…I can’t even be happy with all my heart; it just feels incomplete.”
