Charvaka Enters Hastinapura

A wicked Rakshasa who fought a battle in the Mahabharata and entered Hastinapura in triumph. However, the Brahmins discovered he was an impostor so they killed him with a deadly ray from their eyes.

The capital city of central India in the days of the great war of the Mahabharata.

an evil spirit, a demon

The great Hindu epic of the war between the Pandavas and the Kauravas, which is composed of (a stunning) 220,000 lines.

I was thinking about this as i first dreamed of what i could do with it... so i guess in the long run i acted on my initial impulse... and i felt the release could yeild hours on end of stuff because it’s intense and saturated. i wanted to not simply allow the jorge castro tape to play from one end to the next unaltered... that would be yesterday’s answer, mix it with something else... i was thinking it needed this and that added to get to where i wanted it to be, but that was a blind alley. so i disected it instead.

the results sound like Charvaka hacking his way to victory - entering Hastinapura in celebration only to be destroyed by the deadly eye rays.
