Madhushala By Harivansh Rai Bachhan:Free Download

Madhushala (Hindi: मधुशाला) (The Tavern/The House of Wine), is a book of 135 "quatrains": verses of four lines ("Ruba'i) by Hindi poet and writer Harivansh Rai Bachchan (1907-2003).

The highly metaphorical work is still celebrated for its deeply Sufi incantations and philosophical undertones [1] and is an important work in the Chhayavaad (Hindi: छायावाद) (Shadowism) literary movement of early 20th century Hindi literature.

All the rubaaiaa (the plural for rubaai) end in the word madhushala. The poet tries to explain the complexity of life with his four instruments, which appear in almost every verse: madhu, madira or haala (wine), saaki (server), pyaala (cup or glass) and of course madhusala, madiralaya (pub/bar).
