There is no such thing as a Fakir Baul, Fakir is Fakir, Baul is Baul to completely different groups of people.
This is a false wrong and random linkage to these association who are only friends of Babu Kishan. Purna Das Baul met Bob Dylan in 1967 however, it was Lakshman Das Baul his younger brother who Bob Dylan always asked Babu Kishan about? It was Babu Kishan who contacted and maintained a personal relationship not Purna Das Baul and no other Bauls were associated. How can people do this, how can M Young write such garbage and make these associations?
Why use Nityananda when he is the ancestors of this family, he was not a Nath either, he was a Vaishnava Baul Avadhuta, I can not believe the inaccuracies and the cherry picking to make yourself and group look like you know.
How would you feel if someone stole your families story, cut your names off and added names that are not from your lineage, a case of pure Cultural Appropriation.
No other Baul ever used Lineage except Babu Kishan now all these new lineages pop up?? No Baul ever said Rasa Lila? In a way I am afraid to release Babu Kishan's book because all the vultures will copy and paste.
Carol was a good friend of Babu's he helped her endlessly with her Bengali language and her study of Baul, even signing and giving information for a grant application.
