Was writer of Madhushala, himself a heavy drinker ?

Click Here to read this post in Hindi (Devnaagari Script).

School me jab bhee Harivansh Rai Bachchan kee kavitao ka jikr hota ek prashn man me uThata rahata ki jis kavi ne madiraalay aur usame bahatee haala par pooree pustak likh Daalee ho vo to avashy nijee jeevan me dhurandhar peene vaala raha hogaa.

Waise bhee bhala aisee rubaeeyo.n ko paDhakar ham aur soch bhee kya sakate the?

laalaayit adharo se jisane, haay, nahee choomee haala,
harSh-vikampit kar se jisane, ha, na chhua madhu ka pyaala,
haath pakaD lajjit saakee ko paas nahee jisane kheencha,
vyarth sukha Daalee jeevan kee usane madhumay madhushala.


sankochavash ye prashn kabhee mai apane hindee shikShak se poochh nahee paayaa. aur ye jijnyaasa, bahut saalo tak jijnyaasa hee rah gee....

varSho baad Depawali me ghar kee safaee ke dauraan pitaajee kee alamaaree se deemako ke hamale ka mukaabala karata hua isaka 1974 me punarmudrit pockeT buk sanskaraN milaa. aur meree khushee ka tab Thikaana nahee raha jab pustak ke parishiShT me harivansha rai bachchan jee ko khud baDe rochak Dhang se is prashn kee safaee deta paDhaa.

to leejie paDhie ki bachchan jee ka khud kya kahana tha is baare me...

"...........madhushaala ke bahut se paaThak aur shrota ek samay samaza karate the, kuchh shaayad ab bhee samazate ho, ki isaka lekhak din raat madira ke nashe me choor rahata hai. vaastavikata ye hai ki 'madira' naamadhaaree drav se mera parichay akSharashah baraayanaam hai. nashe se mai inkaar nahee karoongaa. jindagee hee ik nasha hai. aur bhee bahut se nashe hai. apane premiyo ka bhram door karane ke lie mainne ek samay ek rubaee likhee thee


svaya nahee peeta, auro ko, kintu pila deta haala,
svaya nahee chhoota, auro ko, par pakaDa deta pyaala,
par upadesh kushal bahutero se mainne yah seekha hai,
svaya nahee jaata, auro ko pahuncha deta madhushala.


fir bhee baraabar prashn hote rahe, aap peete nahee to aapako madira par likhane kee preraNa kahaa se milatee hai? prashn bhola tha , par tha eemaanadaara. ek din dhyaan aaya ki kaayastho ke kul me janma hoo jo peene ke lie prasiddh hai, ya the. chand baradaee ke raaso ka chhappay yaad bhee aayaa. sochane laga, kya poorvajo ka kiya hua madhupaan muzapar koee sanskaar na chhoD gaya hoga! bhole bhaale logo ko bahalaane ke lie ek rubaee likhee

mai kaayasth kulodabhav mere purakho ne itana Dhaala,
mere tan ke lohoo me hai pachahattar pratishat haala,
pushtainee adhikaar muze hai madiraalay ke aangan par,
mere daado paradaado ke haath bikee thee madhushala.


par sach to yah hai ki ham log amoDha ke kaayasth hai jo apane aachaar-vichaar ke kaaraN amoDha ke paanDe kahalaate hai, aur jinake yahaa yah kivadantee hai ki yadi koee sharaab piega to koDhee ho jaegaa. yah bhee niyati ka ek vyangy hai ki jinhonne madira na peene kee itanee kaDee pratijnya kee thee, unake hee ek vanshaj ne madira kee itanee vakaalat kee.................."

Baad mein maine jab pooree pustak paDhee to laga madiraalay aur haala ko prateek banaakar bachchan ne jeevan ke yathaarth ko kitane sahaj shabdo me vyakt kiya hai. agalee posT me chalenge madhushaala kee kuchh rubaeeyo ke sangeetamay safar par...
