Ananda Bagchi, who supported the movement

Poet Ananda Bagchi was one of the founders of ‘Krittibas’ magazine.

At a time during the Sixties when writers like Shankha Ghosh, Debesh Roy, Amitabha Dasgupta etc were scared to support the Hungryalist movement, and refused to become defense witness in their trial, Ananda Bagchi supported the movement. He had volunteered to become a defense witness in the Court Case ; however, the Bankura College where he was teaching, did not allow him.

Ananda Bagchi, later, when he edited the anthology PROTHOM SARA JAGANO KOBITA included Malay Roychoudhury’s poem STARK ELECTRIC JESUS which had led to the arrest and trial of Hungryalists.
