Madhushala (Hindi) 61st Edition (Hardcover) Price: Rs.82

A celebrated work in Indian poetry, Madhushala (Hindi) is a collection of surreal poems by the famous Harivansh Rai Bachchan.

Summary Of The Book

Influenced by the distinguished Urdu poet Omar Khayyam and his Rubaiyat, Harivansh Rai Bachchan penned this impeccable work in the year 1935. Here, he puts together an assortment of 135 subdued verses, all relating to madhushala or the tavern. Written during the times when the Impressionist Literary Movement was in full swing in India, Madhushala (Hindi) exudes the refreshing change that came with the romantic upsurge of the early 20th century literature.

The metaphoric verses carry strong philosophical undertones and showcase the magical Sufi spell. The poet relates to the ups and downs of life using implied comparisons to the tavern, the wine, the server and the glass. The imagery and the hidden meaning of the work brought both national and international recognition to Bachchan. Its astounding fame even earned the poet an audience out of Mahatma Gandhi, who greatly appreciated the work.

Gradually, Bachchan's personal recitations of Madhushala (Hindi) became a rising trend in elite social gatherings and poetic conventions. Despite the criticism it attracted for the apparent references to alcohol, it has remained a work of great taste. It has been performed on stage by famous dancers world over, and the audio company HMV has produced selected verses in the voice of the famous singer Manna Dey.

Brilliant Work!

Must say, every line in this book was worth it. The lyrical structure, the philosophical outlook, the brilliant metaphors! I have read the book at least 3 times in the past one year and I'm sure I'm gonna revisit! You can easily tell why this book achieved iconic status when first published 1935, and boy does it still hold relevance! The book is a journey through life. I highly recommend it.

fooling !

i had purchased the book expecting it to be full of harivanshraiji's classic poetry or atleat some extracts from the same. but the book is in no context of any similarity by far with the great MADHUSHALA by HARIVANSHRAI BACCHAN. dont spend even the little money... i personally felt fooled on buying this one!!

excellent is the world

bought this with madhushala audio cd(Manna dey) to get the best understanding of Madhushala.
i find myself nothing to say about the legend.there is nothing better than this a man of 1930s in his 20s can elaborate.
and for the other followers out there who are complaining about the content, please go for "Mere shreshth kavitaye" for full cover of Mighty Madhushala, Madhukalash and other by bachhan saheb.
overall excellent work by the legend.

great poem

this is an epic poem by harivanshrai bacchan. honestly i am not that interested in hindi poems and this was my first purchase into this genre. so i wasn't expecting to have just a single poem this long in one book. you need to understand the verses rather than just reading it to truly understand the meaning behind the words. all in all a good quality read in the age if this 50 shades crap.
