I am reading a load of the material from the early days, and you know what ... these people are whacked ... utterly loaded. What ever they are on makes the excesses of the 60s look sweet and benign. Like rambling acid casualties going round and round in circles, fill with self-agrandisment (e.g. "I am God Brahma, no really man ... and in my next life I am going to be God Krishna and, and that dude whose statue I used to keep under my pillow for good luck, you know, Narayan .. and in between I will be Vishnu too ... and it is Shiva that is mounting my corpse"), conspiracy theories and contempt for the whole of the rest of the world.
Excuse me while I offload. Yes, I know it has some metaphorical value, as old Virendra Dev Dixit is attempting to unpick, but these folks took it all literally. May be the question is not just "Why did we join the BKWSU?" but "How did we get sucked in?"
- What were the steps and process, the mechanisms, that caught us by surprise? Can we deconstruct or back-engineer it?
