Madhushala (Hardcover) Price: Rs. 67

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.

About Harivansh Rai Bachchan

Harivansh Rai Bachchan was a famous Indian poet.

Sopaan, Basere Se Door, Nisha Nimantran, Madhubala and Madhukalash are a few of his other works.

Born in 1907 near Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh, Bachchan attended Allahabad University and Banaras Hindu University. He started his career as an English teacher in 1941, and later went to Cambridge University in 1952 for his doctoral studies on the works of W. B. Yeats. Upon returning, he worked at All India Radio for a while, before he joined the External Affairs Ministry.

It was during this time that he translated many of Shakespeare's works to Hindi, including Macbeth, Othello, Hamlet and King Lear. Rewarding his exceptional contribution to Indian Literature, the Government of India honored him with a Sahitya Akademi Award, a nomination to the Rajya Sabha and the Padma Bhushan Award. He was married to Teji Bachchan with whom he had two sons, including the famous actor Amitabh Bachchan. He was living in Bombay when he died in 2003, at the age of 95.

Brilliant set of poems

If you have not read this, then you have not read a master piece of hindi potery. The ease and beauty with which Mr. Bachhan describes various facets of life using the Madhushala, Saki and Hala are just amazing.

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.

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.

Not good enough

The content of the book is not so very interesting.
my expectation level was so very high from this book; from years i was waiting to read this book but i m do disappointed, they'v just cheated in this form. if you want to read the real Bachhan'S LEGEND!!! i prefer you to go for the original madhushala "bigger one"

:) (:
