Misinformation by Deborah Baker

This book deals with the life of Beat poet Allen Ginsberg in India. However, Ms Baker has incidentally taken the opportunity to spread misinformation about the Hungryalist movement for reasons best known to her. She claims to know Bengali but the bibliography and index of the book shows that she did not consult a single Bengali book on the subject or the relevant magazines of the time. She did not visit the Hungryalist archive at The Little Magazine Library & Research Centre. She did not interview any of the Hungryalist writers alive at that time. She nevertheless collected her information from the KRITTIBAS group of writers who are self-declared anti-Hungryalist columnists.
