 4. Bachchan's Madhushala, Rimjhim Baarish - Yin and Yang (Hindi Poetry) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 794

Year 1935 – it was quite a struggle to publish Madhushala for the first time. Abhyuday Press where Bachchan Ji used to work, was dilly dallying for a year, so Bachchan had to take the matter in his own hands – using all possible resources at his disposal and with friends, he founded a press called “Sushma Nikunj”, which became the first publisher of Madhushala, and subsequently of Madhubala and Madhukalash.Then we talk about the symbols used here, such as, skies, earth, stars and an interdependent eco-system, the Yin-Yang kind of relationship via Madhushala.झड़ी लगाकर बरसे मदिरा रिमझिम, रिमझिम, रिमझिम कर, बेलि, विटप, तृण बन मैं पीऊँ, वर्षा ऋतु हो मधुशालाWe are also talking about Bachchan ji reliving his past when he sees his dead friends Karkal and Champa into his new friends Shri Krishna and Rani.
