Bombay, 27th January 1965
Dear Mr Roychoudhury
I met the Deputy Commissioner of Police the day after we met at the Office of the Radical Humanist at Calcutta. I was told that they would not have liked to bother themselves with the ‘Hungry Generation’ movement but for the fact that a number of citizens to whom the writings of your group were made available, insisted on some action being taken.
With kind regards
( It is time for researchers to dig up the files in Police Archive of Lalbazar, Kolkata to find out as to who were these so-called ‘citizens’ who provoked the administration to humiliate eleven poets, arrest six of them, handcuff them, tie rope around their waist for further humiliation and chargesheet one of them for a two year court ordeal. )
