The 44 yrs old postcard by Dr. Harivansh Rai Bachchan
A valued collector's item for the fans of Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Jaya Bhaduri and Aishwarya Rai
While going through my old papers, of school days in Birla Vidya Mandir, Nainital, I found a hand written postcard of Late Dr. Harivansh Rai Bachchan. The postcard was written in 1967, about 44 years ago, to the Editor of our School magazine. I have preserved it since then as a valued collector's item.
Harivansh Rai "Bachchan" Shrivastav (27 November 1907 – 18 January 2003) was a noted Hindi poet of Chhayavaad literary movement (romantic upsurge) of early 20th century Hindi literature. He is best known for his early work "Madhushala" (a bar selling alcoholic drinks). He is also the father of Bollywood megastar, Amitabh Bachchan and grandfather of Abhishek Bachchan.
