Harivansh Rai Bachchan - The Legend If we consider the most important creations in Hindi Literature then the precious poetry in “Madhushala” by Sh. Harivansh Rai Bachchan should be one of the first on your must read list.

The book has verses with power of teaching you the way of living life and they also have the power to heal. Its quite possible that after reading and understanding them, you may find a new way to look upon your own life.

For all you wish to experience it, I would like to share the info on formats in which “Madhushala” is available around the world.


Madhushala (Authentically as a Book)
Madhushala - The Book For the real readers and book lovers who want to feel the depth written on the paper, the book is available in India published by Rajpal & Sons. In fact the entire literature by Sh. Harivansh Rai Bachchan (including his autobiography) is published by them in different versions and titles.

Sh. Bchchan uses hindi in its unadultrated form which at times may be tough to understand for the youth of today’s ever changing times. But as you get into it deeply and reach the hidden meaning then it will make your feel lighter and free.


Madhushala (As an Audio CD)
There are two editions of Audio Cds in which selected verses of Madhushala and other poems of Sh. Harivansh Rai Bachchan have been rendered by two prominent personalities of Indian Film Industry.

By Manna Dey – This includes the maestro singing “Madhushala” in his own unique style and voice.

By Amitabh Bachchan Himself – The son pays his humble tribute by singing his favourite poems from the various books of Sh. Bachchan in his world famous voice and style. Both these audio cds have been released by Saregama in India and available in the market.


Madhushala (Sung by Amitabh Bachchan in a special tribute programme by Sahara)

For instant experience just search for this clip at Youtube, where Amitabh is superbly enjoying singing “Madhushala” in a special program organized by Sahara. You will surely cherish this not to be missed rendition by the incomparable Amitabh Bachchan himself.

It’s simply awesome

Harivansh Rai Bachchans Madhushala now translated into German.

Date of publication 15th september 2009, Heidelberg, Germany
ISBN 978-3-937603-40-7

The famous poem of Dr. Harivansh Rai Bachchan has reached a non-english-spoken world: Germany. Nearly 75 years after its release in India now the german world is able to read the beauty, deepness and truth of this immortal work.

The book is written in a bilingual form, includes the original Hindi-stanzas next to the German translation. In 100 pages will be found not only the poem, but also informations about the author Dr. Harivansh Rai Bachchan, some thoughts about his work, 8 illustrations (technique:etching), a glossary and:

A foreword from Amitabh Bachchan

It is published in

In 2005 Bollywood-wave reached Germany and became a cause of interest in this foreign land. Mohabbatein was the reason, why Claudia Huefner wants to know more about this country, its culture, its people, most captivated by the language.

So she decided to learn Hindi, got new friends and one of them told her about the renowned Hindi poet Dr. Harivansh Rai Bachchan and his famous work Madhushala. As she started to translate the first stanzas she felt: there was a deep love inside. Within nine month she completed the translation, with the help of Shashvat Doorwar (from Jhansi), who guided her with the most appropriate and correct meaning of words in Madhushala, in english language.

Rahul Sharma.
Bobby Sirji,

This is an amazing website of yours! I can call it an ultimate stop for movie buffs of my type.

Madhushala is playing in my various music players since 1986, when I was in 6th.

Presently it is ripped from the CD that I own and it is a constant in all my playlists!

Today, I got my nth printed Hindi version. So many have been lost/stolen (mostly)/ loaned/ given with good intention, that I have forgotten the number!

Thanks for the detailed post.


Bobby Sing

Hi Rahul,
First of all Sorry for not replying to your months old comment since it  somehow skipped and I missed it.
But thanks a lot for your appreciation brother and Do Keep Visiting.


sakshi jaiswal

This madushala poem is very nice.

Sunil Arora

Unable to find Madhushala sung by Amitabh Bachchan. Everywhere that I have looked including the three links posted by you have only the version sung by Manna Dey.

Wonder if Amitabh actually did a whole CD of madhushala?


Bobby Sing

Hi Sunil,

Actually there is a little confusion here.
The Amitabh CD is a collection of different poems of Sh. Harivansh Rai Bachchan recited by him in a special edition and it is not a Madhushala CD sung by him.

So probably you might be looking for it in a different misleading way.

However to help you out in this, I have sent a mail to your ID seprately. So just check that out.

Shri Harivansh Rai Bachchan Ji is the great
& greatest.

Bobby Sing

Yes, He surely is Sharad.
Thanks for your visit and kind comment.

Namita Singh

Hi Bobby,

Your site is really good. Actually i was looking for madhushala sung by great Amitabh Bacchan. Can u help me wid dis...I would appreciate, if u mail me d link to d cd.

 Thanx in advance!!

Bobby Sing

Dear Namita.
Thanks a lot for your appreciating words about the site and my work here.
Regarding Madhushala, I would like to inform that as mentioned in the article, MADHUSHALA's selected poems are available in a CD sung by Manna Dey. In the other CD stated above Amitabh Bachchan has sung or recited poems of Shri Harivnansh Rai Bachchan which are not from Madhushala book.

However this project is in pipeline to be recorded as reported in the news. 

Amitabh sings poems from Madhushala often in program remembering Sh. Harivansh Rai Ji and you can find a worth watching clliping at Youtube while searching for "Amitabh sings Madhushala". 
So do watch it and I will let you know whenever there is something new on this too.

Keep Visiting and writing in.



Madhusala is one of my best article by father of mahanayak mr. amitabh bachchan I like it very much.

Bobby Sing

Thanks Anand for visiting and writing in,
I hope you would love reading many other articles here too in different sections of the site.



Thanks a lot for the urls, I was trying for a long time for Madhushala in Amit ji\'s voice. Any idea when can we have full poem in his voice cause I can\'t seem to find it.

Bobby Sing

The pleasure is all mine Raj.
And for the audio (as well as video) of Amitabh Bachchan reciting Madhushala, you can simply search "Madhushala by Amitabh" in Youtube and there are several videos with the content.
Happy Viewing with HIS BLESSINGS
