So I decided to learn Hindi, got friends and one of them told me about the renowned Hindi poet Dr. Harivansh Rai Bachchan and his famous work Madhushala. As I started to translate the first stanzas i felt: there was a deep love inside. Within nine month I completed the translation, with the help of Shashvat Doorwar (from Jhansi), who guided her with the most appropriate and correct meaning of words in Madhushala, in english language.____________________ For additional informations - here you will find more details of the story: *************** www.claudia-huefner.de/homepage_engl/madhushala.htm ******************
