The 44 yrs old postcard by Dr. Harivansh Rai Bachchan



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.



Harivanshrai was nominated to the Indian Rajya Sabha in 1966 and received the Sahitya Akademi award three years later. In 1976 he was honoured with the Padma Bhushan for his immense contribution to Hindi literature. He was also honoured with the Saraswati Samman, the Sovietland Nehru Award and the Lotus Award of the Afro-Asian writers’ conference, for his unique contribution to the world of letters. But if ever asked to introduce himself, he had a simple introduction: Mitti ka tan, masti ka man, kshan-bhar jivan — mera parichay. (A body of clay, a mind full of play, a moment’s life - that is me.).
It's a valued collector's item for the fans of Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Jaya Bhaduri and Aishwarya Rai. The postcard is now available for sale.


Minimum reserved price for this postcard is Rs. One Lac.  (INR 1,00,000)

  1. Dear Bachchan saab, my whole family including me are a big fan of you. I have seen most of you films and my hobby is to get to know more about those films. But I could not get details about your film Saudagar. Could you please tell me in brief about your experience about the plot and place of shooting? Thank you. Aritra Kumar Biswas.

  2. Here you need Arrakshan ....i am worried why they did not make movie on currupted people .... need action ....more on corrupted people than aarkshan ....I 100% agree with legend Anupam Kher …real …artist from NSD.

    Is Bollywood people want to be just be slaver of underworld and politicians …and be in corruption supporters or to support Anna Hazare

    Bollywood change the life of all living existence of Indian ….They should stand …with Anna Hazare and support him to make reformation of India. When people have money to spend to see movie ….

    All Bollywood Stars either to stand with Anna Hazzare to fight against corruption …if not ….they should consider …diplomat ..afraid from politician to take action on them ….come on Natwar Lal ……if u r not Mr. Natwar Lal you want to be with …. with the people who want to crush the people who want safe India, and want to crush the people say against corruption.

    I think Bollywood and Anna Hazaare can make Different INDIA. And Make nice picture … or all will be crushed in near future.
