samane sandhya-dhoosarati jal ki ek chadar bichhi hai. usake bad baloo ki bela hai, usamen athakheliyan karake laharon ne sidhi bana di hai. kautuk yah hai ki us par bhi hari-hari doob jam gayi hai. us baloo ki sidhi ki oopari tah par jane kab se ek shila padi hai. kee varshaon ne use apane pet men pachana chaha, par vah kathor shila gal n saki, phir bhi nikal hi ati thi. nandalal use apane shaishav se hi dekhata tha. chhoti-si nadi, jo usake ganv se satakar bahati thi, usi ke kinare vah apani sitari lekar pashchim ki dhoosar abha men nity jakar baith jata. jis rat ko chandani nikal ati, usamen der tak aur andheri rat ke pradosh men jab tak andhakar nahin ho jata tha, baithakar sitari bajata apani tapariyon men chala jata tha.

nandalal andhere men darata n tha. kintu chandrika men der tak kisi aspasht chhaya ko dekh sakata tha. isalie, aj bhi usi shila par vah moorti baithi hai. gairik vasan ki abha sandhy-soory se ranjit nabh se hod kar rahi hai. do-char laten idhar-udhar mansal ansh par van ke sath khel rahi hain. nadi ke kinare pray: pavan ka basera rahata hai, isi se yah suvidha hai. jab se shaishav-sahachari nalini se nandalal ka viyog hua hai, vah apani sitari se hi man bahalata hai, so bhi ekant men; kyonki nalini se bhi vah kisi ke samane milane par sukh nahin pata tha. kintu hay re sukh! uttejanamay anand ko anubhav karane ke lie ek sakshi bhi chahie. bina kisi doosare ko apana sukh dikhae haday bhali-bhanti se garv ka anubhav nahin kar pata. chandr-kiran, nadi-tarng, malay-hillol, kusum-surabhi aur rasal-vriksh ke sath hi nandalal ko yah bhi vishvas tha. ki us par ka yogi bhi kabhi-kabhi us sitari ki mid se marod khata hai. laten usake kapol par tal dene lagati hain.

chandani nikhari thi. aj apani sitari ke sath nandalal bhi gane laga tha. vah pranay-sngit tha-bhavukata aur kalpanik prem ka sambhar bade veg se uchchhvasit hua. ant:karan se dabi huee taralavritti, jo vismrit svapn ke saman halaka prakash deti thi, aj n jane kyon gairik nirjhar ki tarah ubal padi. jo vastu aj tak maitri ka sukh-chihn thi-jo saral hriday ka upahar thi-jo udarata ki kritgyta thi-usane jvala, lalasapoorn prem ka roop dharan kiya. sngit chalane laga.

‘‘are kaun hai.....mujhe bachao.....ah.....’’, pavan ne upayukt doot ki tarah yah sandesh nandalal ke kanon tak pahunchaya. vah vyakul hokar sitari chhod kar dauda. nadi men phand pada. usake kanon men nalini ka sa svar sunaee pada. nadi chhoti thi-kharasrota thi. nandalal hath marata hua laharon ko chir raha tha. usake bahu-pash men ek sukumar sharir a gaya.

chandrakiranon aur lahariyon ko batachit karane ka ek adhar mila. lahari kahane lagi-‘‘abhage! too is dukhiya nalini ko bachane kyon aya, isane to aj apane samast du:khon ka ant kar diya tha.’’

kiran-‘‘kyon ji, tum logon ne nandalal ko bahut din tak bich men baha kar halla-gulla machakar, bachaya tha.’’

lahari-‘‘aur tumhin to prakash dalakar use sachet karati rahi ho.’’

kiran-‘‘aj tak us bechare ko andhere men rakkha tha. keval alok ki kalpana karake vah apane alekhy pat ko udh‌bhasit kar leta tha. us par ka yogi sudooravarti paradeshi ki ramy smriti ko shant tapovan ka drishy tha.’’

lahari-‘‘pagali! sukh-svapn ke sadrish aur asha men anand ke saman main bich men padi-padi usake saral neh ka bahut dinon tak sanchay karati rahi-antarik akarshanapoorn sammilan hone par bhi, vasana-rahit nishkam saundaryamay vyavadhan ban kar main donon ke bich men bahati thi; kintu nandalal itane men santusht n ho saka. uchhal-kood kar hath chalakar mujhe bhi gndala kar diya. use bahane, doobane aur utarane ka avesh badh gaya tha.’’

kiran-‘‘hoon, tab dooben bahen.’’

pavan chupachap in baton ko sun kar nadi ke bahav ki or sarrata mar kar sandesha kahane ko bhaga. kintu ve door nikal gaye the. sitari moochrchhana men padi rahi.
