Renowned Hindi writer Ajit Kumar remembers the great poet Harvansh Rai Bachchan. As one of his dearest disciples, Ajit Kumar gives us some rare glimpses of the poet’s life. He says Bachchan was a strict teacher, Jawahrlal Nehru’s Hindi adviser and of course a great poet. And very few of us know that Harivansh Rai and Teji Bachchan were disciplined and organised parents and their household was a typical Allahabadi Sangam of tradition and modernity, that later reflected in many of the films and songs of their son Amitabh Bachchan. NRIfm presents the life story of Harivansh Rai Bachchan.
