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.

हरिवंशराय 'बच्चन' की अमर काव्य-रचना मधुशाला 1935 से लगातार प्रकाशित होती आ रही है। सूफियाना रंगत की 135 रुबाइयों से गूँथी गई इस कविता क हर रुबाई का अंत 'मधुशाला' शब्द से होता है। पिछले आठ दशकों से कई-कई पीढि़यों के लोग इस गाते-गुनगुनाते रहे हैं। यह एक ऐसी कविता है] जिसमें हमारे आसपास का जीवन-संगीत भरपूर आध्यात्मिक ऊँचाइयों से गूँजता प्रतीत होता है।

मधुशाला का रसपान लाखों लोग अब तक कर चुके हैं और भविष्य में भी करते रहेंगे] लेकिन यह 'कविता का प्याला' कभी खाली होने वाला नहीं है, जैसा बच्चन जी ने स्वयं लिखा है-

भावुकता अंगूर लता से खींच कल्पना की हाला, कवि साकी बनकर आया है भरकर कविता का प्याला; कभी न कण भर खाली होगा, लाख पिएँ, दो लाख पिएँ! पाठक गण हैं पीनेवाले, पुस्तक मेरी मधुशाला।
