About The Book
Harivansh Rai Bachchan's glorious book Madhushala is a collection of mystically woven 135 quatrains. Madhushala, meaning ‘The House of Wine', includes brilliant compilation of ballads that portray the various dimensions of life with the use of words like wine (madhu), house of wine (madhushala) and cup-bearer (saaki). The quatrain style of writing could be compared with the Urdu style ‘Ruba'i and has been inspired by Omar Khayyam's literary piece ‘Ruba'iyat'.
