Please try again later. Excellent book and delighted to have the lyrics to the famous tunes of Madhushala. One that is song by Amitabh Bachchan himself http: For the publishersif you could come out with an edition in which the poem is interpretedit would be nice.
The poem itself is open to multiple views and was very thought provoking when it came out. Bachchanji travelled from village to village and recited the poem. Pity that this is not possible now. But yes, publishers can either have a youtube edition of it being explained or create a book that has both the verses and the explanations. I have held this poem dear to me for a decade or so.
Always find something new in it.
Finally delighted to have the complete poem – an outstanding poem of our glorious Hindi literature. I bought this product this for my friend. I guess It must be a good raj Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. For the first time, I’m deviating from my usual method of reviewing.
What is your review of Madhushala? – Quora
First of all, I believe poetry is not something which can be reviewed. Secondly, when it is an epic work like this, one can only express their views.
I had the pleasure of reading this book recently; written insometime around when my grandparents were born. It makes me wonder; books, literature, written material is so wonderful.
To have survived through generations. In In the Afternoon of Time: An Autobiography by Harivansh Rai Bachchan, he states that “imitations or parodies of Madhushala had begun to appear immediately after its first public reading: In this book, from the fifteenth edition, the same professor has shared his experiences of the seminar along with a few quatrains of the parody he had created based on Bachchan’s poem.
Prasad writes that, and I translate, “My Madhushala concerns the materialistic, unlike Bachchan’s mystic Madhushala”. Hindi is not my first language, and hence I had difficulty in understanding many of the verses. I had to consult a dictionary most of the times but, as they say, a literal translation is never impressive as far as poetry is concerned.
Inin India, from what I gathered from press reports; Madhushala — The House of Wine was reproduced again, this time with illustrations, and launched with much fanfare with the entire Bachchan clan in attendance. It’s been nine years since, but I just could not find a single edition of that book anywhere. Why is it so? I couldn’t find it in any of the publisher’s websites either. And the few sites, including Amazon, where it is available, it costs a bomb!
I would have loved to read it, in its entirety. It would have given me a better understanding of the text. As of now, only Columbia University’s website has a PDF version of the book but, only the first twenty-five of the one-hundred-and-thirty-five quatrains are available in scanned format; while select American Universities have an edition of the same book in their library. I have added the link below to the same. Maybe, that is the reason that it took me from August to October to finish a book of 77 pages!
For the full review: My Blog Shaina’s Musings. If you are trying poetry for the first time this is where you start it. Do not read all of it at once or you will loose it. However author has suggested to read it in one go. For the first timers after every phrase take a break and try to understand word by word.
It may sound exhausting but once you do this in initial stages then you will have no problem all the way to the end.

Great use of language and stood the test of time. Harivansh Rai Bachchan saahab ka yeh kaavay sangrah yauvanjeevan vyatha aur harshoullaas se bharapuur hai. Is kaavya sangrah ko padkar har bhatawasi ko apne upaar garv mahasuus karana chahiye Is sangrah madhibala anuvaad karana anucit raheega kyonki har vyakti kee liye isaka anuvaad alag hee hooga.
Aur Bachchan saahab khud hee likhatee hain “jiski aisee ruchi thi usko vaisee lagee madhushala”. This sangrah koo parhakar bas madhushaala ka aanand leena ucit raheega. The poetry itself deserves 5 stars, of course. I give 4 stars because I didn’t like the page layout. There are 3 stanzas of bacuchan poem on each page. I was hoping to find one stanza on each page. But again, if they put one stanza on one page, hqrivansh cost of the book might go up 10 times.
Also, the stanzas are not completely independent, they are themes and allusions that the neighbouring stanzas share, so having 6 stanzas together on a double page harrivansh. I would give 4.
All in all, an excellent purchase. One person found this helpful. I buy this book 3 days back. I am not dare to review Haribans rai Bachchan’s work, everybody know about his work.
I am writing this review about the quality of book. I find the quality of book is excellent, page quality is very supreme. When ever I turn a page I always harivans that I am turning two page, yeah that much good these page are. I got that book in 50 rupees, which is totally worth it. So if you are a fan of Haribans rai ji’s poem you should definitely go for it. See all reviews. Would you like to see more reviews about this item? Pages with related products.
