I don’t think the author here needs any introduction, Harivansh Rai Bacchan’s work always spoke for himself. Madhushala is a book of 135 quatrains. Quatrains are verse of four lines similar to poetry. The poet tries to explain the complexity of life with his four instruments, which appear in almost every verse: madhu, madira or haala; saaki ; pyaala ; and of course madhushala, madiralaya. This highly metaphorical work is still proudly celebrated for its philosophical undertones and deep Sufi incantations.
