The Beat Generation at War
The Beat Generation is often viewed as apolitical, apathetic, selfish, and borne out of the post-WWII era of prosperity. They are viewed as rich kids who chose a bohemian lifestyle as a matter of fashion, as part of a teenage rebellion that went on too long, and inspired too many imitators, and eventually morphing into the beatniks and hippies of the fifties and sixties. Getting to the heart of the Beat ethos isn’t easy, as this is a literary grouping of rather different individuals, over a long period of time, with entirely different philosophies and styles relating to their art. That “post-WWII era” label, then, is important in defining them. If we must group them together, we can define them by opposition to the oppressive society in which they lived. They supported sexual freedom, opposed big government, and pondered to what extent madness was a path to genius.
The Beats are never viewed as coming out of World War II. They are the next generation, the post-war generation. For them it was all supposedly history, or at the very least so far removed from their own existences that it may as well have happened on Mars. Never mind that the core of the Beat group – Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, and William S. Burroughs – met during the war. Never mind that they all lived through it, that most of them had served to some extent in their nation’s military, that they had opinions and experiences, and that perhaps it was more important in their lives than they would admit. Unlike previous generations, the Beats never had a great war novel and never spoke passionately in favor of their country’s interests.

I’ve always wanted a carafe. Sadly the only beverage I consume in large quantities is Mountain Dew while gaming.

Not all that is Beatnik is Beat

Or if you can feel the pulse the patient is dead…

It’s either marvellous or incredible or utterly predictable and depressing and I can’t figure out which it is…the way that the words Beatnik and Hipster came to mean something and then nothing and then came back into play and in less time than it…

Alright, so infamouslyroggy, I have been waiting to recommend these two books to you cause they are basically one of the best series to come around in decades in Indian mythological Fiction. You might have heard of Mahabharata, the Indian Epic that dwarves the likes of Illiad and Oddyssey in its sheer length (100,000 couples strung together to tell the story of five generations of a dynasty). 

This is a realistic, non - religious, secular adaptation of that same epic. When the real Mahabharata started probably 3000 years ago, it was recited orally and over time, each orator added their own take on the story. The first telling was over 24000 couplets long, then it went on to 50000 thousand and finally 100,000 couples which were then written down and given the form of Mahabharata as it is now known.
The intriguing reason of this recommendation is because this series removes all “Godly” scenarios and turns the characters into far more mysterious, ambiguous and gray shaded individuals. I really really hope you read this. I love this series. It’s a trilogy of which the finale is yet to be published. So mean while, do check these out.

I see you as infinite

Mostly when I see you

With my lips and fingers

But you are eternal

Once my tongue gets stuck

On the goosbumps of your body

And from then on

I am but a connoisseur

Or you are

And it is one ceaseless luxury

This is a good use of insomnia right?
