sare ganv men mathura ka-sa gathila javan n tha. koee bis baras ki umar thi. masen bhig rahi thin. guen charata, doodh pita, kasarat karata, kushti ladata tha aur sare din bansuri bajata hat men vicharata tha. byah ho gaya tha, par abhi koee bal-bachcha n tha. ghar men kee hal ki kheti thi, kee chhote-bade bhaee the. ve sab mil-julakar kheti-bari karate the. mathura par sare ghar ko garv tha, use sabase achchha bhojan milata aur sabase kam kam karana padata. jab use janghiye-lngote, nal ya mugdar ke lie rupaye-paise ki zaroorat padati to turat de diye jate the. sare ghar ki yahi abhilasha thi ki mathura pahalavan ho jay aur akhade men apane savaye ko pachhade. is lad-pyar se mathura jara tarra ho gaya tha. gayen kisi ke khet men padi hain aur ap akhade men dnd laga raha hai. koee ulahana deta to usaki tyoriyan badal jatin. garajakar kahata, jo man men aye kar lo, mathura to akhada chhodakar hankane n jayenge; par usaka dil-daul dekhakar kisi ko usase ulajhane ki himmat n padati thi. log gam kha jate the. garmiyon ke din the, tal-talaiya sookhi padi thin. joron ki loo chalane lagi thi. ganv men kahin se ek sand a nikala aur guon ke sath ho liya. sare din to guon ke sath rahata, rat ko basti men ghus ata aur khoonton se bndho bailon ko singon se marata. kabhi kisi ki gili divar ko singon se khod dalata kabhi ghar ka kooda singon se udata. kee kisanon ne sag-bhaji laga rakhi thin, sare din sinchate-sinchate marate the. yah sand rat ko un hare-bhare kheton men pahunch jata aur khet ka khet tabah kar deta. log use dndon se marate, ganv ke bahar bhaga ate, lekin jara der men phir gayon men pahunch jata. kisi ki akl kam n karati thi ki is snkat ko kaise tala jay. mathura ka ghar ganv ke bich men tha, isalie usake bailon ko sand se koee hani n pahunchati thi. ganv men upadrav macha hua tha aur mathura ko jara bhi chinta n thi. akhir jab dhaury ka antim bndhan toot gaya to ek din logon ne jakar mathura ko ghera aur bole- bhaee, kaho to ganv men rahen, kaho to nikal jayn. jab kheti hi n bachegi to rahakar kya karenge? tumhari gayon ke pichhe hamara satyanash hua jata hai, aur tum apane rng men mast ho. agar bhagavanh ne tumhen bal diya hai to isase doosare ki raksha karani chahie, yah nahin ki sabako pisakar pi jao. sand tumhari gayon ke karan ata hai aur use bhagana tumhara kam hai; lekin tum kanon men tel dale baithe ho, mano tumase kuchh matalab hi nahin. mathura ko unaki dasha par daya ayi. balavan manushy pray: dayalu hota hai. bola- achchha jao, ham aj sand ko bhaga denge. ek adami ne kaha- door tak bhagana, nahin to phir laut ayega. mathura ne lathi kndho par rakhate hue uttar diya- ab lautakar n ayega. 2 chilachilati dopahari thi aur mathura sand ko bhagaye lie jata tha. donon pasine men tar the. sand bar-bar ganv ki or ghoomane ki cheshta karata, lekin mathura usaka irada tadakar door hi se usaki rah chhenk leta. sand krodh se unmutta hokar kabhi-kabhi pichhe mudakar mathura par tod karana chahata lekin us samay mathura samana bachakar bagal se tabad-tod itani lathiyan jamata ki sand ko phir bhagana padata. kabhi donon arahar ke kheton men daudate, kabhi jhadiyon men. arahar ki khoontiyon se mathura ke panv lahoo-luhan ho rahe the, jhadiyon men dhoti phat gayi thi; par use is samay sand ka pichha karane ke siva aur koee sudh n thi. ganv par ganv ate the aur nikal jate the. mathura ne nishchay kar liya ki ise nadi-par bhagaye bina dam n loonga. usaka knth sookh gaya tha aur ankhen lal ho gayi thin, rom-rom se chinagariyan-si nikal rahi thin, dam ukhad gaya tha; lekin vah ek kshan ke lie bhi dam n leta tha. do-dhaee ghnton ki daud ke bad jakar nadi najar ayi. yahin har-jit ka phaisala hone vala tha, yahin donon khiladiyon ko apane danv-pench ke jauhar dikhane the. sand sochata tha, agar nadi men utara to yah mar hi dalega, ek bar jan ladakar lautane ki koshish karani chahie. mathura sochata tha, agar yah laut pada to itani mehanat vyarth ho jayagi aur ganv ke log meri hnsi udayenge. donon apane-apane ghat men the. sand ne bahut chaha ki tej daudakar age nikal jaoon aur vahan se pichhe ko phiroon, par mathura ne use mudane ka mauqa n diya. usaki jan is vakt suee ki nok par thi, ek hath bhi chooka aur pran gaye, jara pair phisala aur phir uthana nasib n hoga. akhir manushy ne pashu par vijay payi aur sand ko nadi men ghusane ke siva aur koee upay n soojha. mathura bhi usake pichhe nadi men paith gaya aur itane dnde lagaye ki usaki lathi toot gayi. 3 ab mathura ko joron ki pyas lagi. usane nadi men munh laga diya aur is tarah hank-hankakar pine laga mano sari nadi pi jayaga. use apane jivan men kabhi pani itana achchha n laga tha aur n kabhi usane itana pani piya tha. maloom nahin, panch ser pi gaya tha ya das ser, lekin pani garam tha, pyas n bujhi; jara der men phir nadi men munh laga diya aur itana pani piya ki pet men sans lene ki jagah bhi n rahi. tab gili dhoti kndho par dalakar ghar ki or chala. lekin das hi panch pag chala hoga ki pet men mitha-mitha dard hone laga. usane socha, daudakar pani pine se aisa dard akasar ho jata hai, jara der men door ho jayaga. lekin dard badhane laga aur mathura ka age jana kathin ho gaya. vah ek ped ke niche baith gaya aur dard se bechain hokar zamin par lotane laga. kabhi pet ko dabata, kabhi khada ho jata, kabhi baith jata, par dard badhata hi jata tha. ant men usane jor-jor se karahana aur rona shuroo kiya; par vahan kaun baitha tha jo usaki khabar leta. door tak koee ganv nahin, n adami n adamajat, bechara dopahari ke sannate men tadap-tadapakar mar gaya. ham kade-se-kada ghav sah sakate hain, lekin jara-sa bhi vyatikram nahin sah sakate. vahi dev ka-sa javan jo koson tak sand ko bhagata chala aya tha, tattavon ke virodh ka ek var bhi n sah saka. kaun janata tha ki yah daud usake lie maut ki daud hogi! kaun janata tha ki maut hi sand ka roop dharakar use yon nacha rahi hai. kaun janata tha ki jal jisake bina usake pran othon par a rahe the, usake lie vish ka kam karega. sndhya samay usake gharavale use dhoondhate hue aye. dekha to vah annt vishram men magn tha. 4 ek mahina gujar gaya. ganvavale apane kam-dhandho men lage. gharavalon ne ro-dho kar sabr kiya; par abhagini vidhava ke ansoo kaise punchhate. vah haradam roti rahati. ankhen chahe bnd bhi ho jatin, par hriday nity rota rahata tha. is ghar men ab kaise nirvah hoga? kis adhar par jioongi? apane lie jina ya to mahatmaon ko ata hai ya lampaton ko. anoopa ko yah kala kya maloom? usake lie to jivan ka ek adhar chahie tha, jise vah apana sarvasv samajhe, jisake lie vah jiye, jis par vah ghamnd kare. gharavalon ko yah gavara n tha ki vah koee doosara ghar kare. isamen badanami thi. isake siva aisi sushil, ghar ke kamon men aisi kushal, len-den ke mamale men itani chatur aur rngaroop ki aisi sarahaniy stri ka kisi doosare ke ghar pad jana hi unhen asahy tha. udhar anoopa ke maikevale ek jagah batachit pakki kar rahe the. jab sab baten tay ho gayin, to ek din anoopa ka bhaee use vida karane a pahuncha. ab to ghar men khalabali machi. idhar kaha gaya, ham vida n karenge. bhaee ne kaha- ham bina vida karaye manenge nahin. ganv ke adami jama ho gaye, pnchayat hone lagi. yah nishchay hua ki anoopa par chhod diya jay. usaka ji chahe chali jay, ji chahe rahe. yahanvalon ko vishvas tha ki anoopa itani jald doosara ghar karane par raji n hogi, do-char bar vah aisa kah bhi chuki thi. lekin is vakt jo poochha gaya to vah jane ko taiyar thi. akhir usaki vidaee ka saman hone laga. doli a gayi. ganv-bhar ki striyan use dekhane ayin. anoopa uthakar apani sas ke pairon par gir padi aur hath jod kar boli- amma, kaha-suna maph karana. ji men to tha ki isi ghar men padi rahoon, par bhagavanh ko mnjoor nahin hai. yah kahate-kahate usaki jaban bnd ho gayi. sas karuna se vihval ho uthi. boli- beti, jahan jao vahan sukhi raho. hamare bhagy hi phoot gaye nahin to kyon tumhen is ghar se jana padata. bhagavanh ka diya aur sabakuchh hai, par unhonne jo nahin diya usamen apana kya bas! aj tumhara devar sayana hota to bigadi bat ban jati. tumhare man men baithe to isi ko apana samajho; palo-poso, bada ho jayaga to sagaee kar doongi. yah kahakar usane apane sabase chhote ladake vasudev se poochha- kyon re! bhaujaee se sagaee karega? vasudev ki umr panch sal se adhik n thi. abaki usaka byah hone vala tha. batachit ho chuki thi. bola- tab to doosare ke ghar n jayagi n? man- nahin, jab tere sath byah ho jayaga to kyon jayagi? vasudev- tab main karoonga. man- achchha, usase poochh, tujhase byah karegi. vasudev- anoopa ki god men ja baitha aur sharamata hua bola- hamase byah karegi? yah kahakar vah hnsane laga; lekin anoopa ki ankhen dabadaba gayin, vasudev ko chhati se lagati huee boli- amman, dil se kahati ho? sas- bhagavanh janate hain! anoopa- aj se yah mere ho gaye? sas- han, sara ganv dekh raha hai. anoopa- to bhaiya se kahala bhejo, ghar jayen, main unake sath n jaoongi. anoopa ko jivan ke lie kisi adhar ki zaroorat thi. vah adhar mil gaya. seva manushy ki svabhavik vritti hai. seva hi usake jivan ka adhar hai. anoopa ne vasudev ko palana-posana shuroo kiya. ubatan aur tel lagati, doodh-roti mal-malakar khilati. ap talab nahane jati to use bhi nahalati. khet men jati to use bhi sath le jati. thode hi dinon men vah usase itana hil-mil gaya ki ek kshan ke lie bhi use n chhodata. man ko bhool gaya. kuchh khane ko ji chahata to anoopa se mangata, khel men mar khata to rota hua anoopa ke pas ata. anoopa hi use sulati, anoopa hi jagati, bimar ho to anoopa hi god men lekar badaloo vaidy ke ghar jati, vahi davayen pilati. ganv ke stri-purush usaki yah prem-tapasya dekhate aur danton ungali dabate. pahale birale hi kisi ko us par vishvas tha. log samajhate the, sal-do-sal men isaka ji oob jayaga aur kisi taraph ka rasta legi; is dudhamunhen balak ke nam par kab tak baithi rahegi; lekin yah sari ashnkaen nirmool nikalin. anoopa ko kisi ne apane vrat se vichalit hote n dekha. jis hriday men seva ka srot bah raha ho, svadhin seva ka- usamen vasanaon ke lie kahan sthan? vasana ka var nirmam, ashahin, adharahin praniyon par hi hota hai. chor ki andhere hi men chalati hai, ujale men nahin. vasudev ko bhi kasarat ka shauq tha. usaki shakl-soorat mathura se milati-julati thi, dil-daul bhi vaisa hi tha. usane phir akhada jagaya aur usaki bansuri ki tanen phir kheton men goonjane lagin. is bhanti 13 baras gujar gaye. vasudev aur anoopa men sagaee ki taiyari hone lagi. 5 lekin ab anoopa vah anoopa n thi, jisane 14 varsh pahale vasudev ko patibhav se dekha tha, ab us bhav ka sthan matribhav ne le liya tha. idhar kuchh dinon se vah ek gahare soch men doobi huee rahati thi. sagaee ke din jyon-jyon nikat ate the, usaka dil baitha jata tha. apane jivan men itane bade parivartan ki kalpana hi se usaka kaleja dahal uthata tha. jise balak ki bhanti pala-posa, use pati banate hue lajja se usaka mukh lal ho jata tha. dvar par nagada baj raha tha. biradari ke log jama the. ghar men gana ho raha tha. aj sagaee ki tithi thi. sahasa anoopa ne jakar sas se kaha- amman, main to laj ke mare mari jati hoon. sas ne bhaunchakki hokar poochha- kyon beti, kya hai? anoopa- main sagaee n karoongi. sas- kaisi bat karati hai beti? sari taiyari ho gayi. log sunenge to kya kahenge? anoopa- jo chahe kahen, jinake nam par 14 baras baithi rahi usi ke nam par ab bhi baithi rahoongi. mainne samajha tha marad ke bina aurat se raha n jata hoga. meri to bhagavanh ne ijjat-abaroo se nibah di. jab nayi umar ke din kat gaye to ab kaun chinta hai! vasudev ki sagaee koee ladaki khojakar kar do. jaise ab tak use pala, usi tarah ab usake bal-bachchon ko paloongi.
