New Delhi, July 27 (HS) Amitabh Bachchan on Sunday night shared a video reciting his father, Harivansh Rai Bachchan’s poem. The video begins with Big B seen sitting with a book in his hands. After 30 seconds, his voice over, reciting the poem, plays in the background. The title of the poem is Hai Andheri Raat Par Diva Jalana Kab Mana Hai.

Along with the video, Amitabh Bachchan wrote, “Babuji ki kavita ke kuch pal. Vo is tarah gaaya karte the kavi sammelan mein. Hospital ke akelepan mei unki bohot yaad aati hai aur unhi ke shabdon se apni sooni raaton ko aabaad karta hoon. (Some moments of my father’s poem. This is how he used to sing in Poet’s Conferences. I miss him in the loneliness of the hospital and fill my empty nights with his words).”
