The Hungry Generation was a literary movement in the Bengali language launched by Malay Roy Choudhury and Samir Roy Choudhury of the Sabarna Roy Choudhury family, along with Debi Roy (Haradhon Dhara) and a few others, during the 1960s in Kolkata, India. The word Hungry was coined from Geoffrey Chaucer's line "In Sowere Hungry Tyme". The philosophical background of the movement was based on Oswald Spengler's idea of Non Linear Time in a particular culture. The span of the movement was from 1961-1965. The movement was launched in November 1961 from Patna residence of the Roy Choudhury brothers.
