[holi ka din]

(samay-9 baje ratri anndamohan tatha dayashnkar vartalap karate ja rahe hain.)

anndamohan - ham logon ko der to n huee. abhi to nau baje honge !

dayashnkar - nahin abhi kya der hogi !

anndamohan - vahan bahut intazar n karana. kyonki ek to din bhar gali-gali ghoomane ke pashchath mujhamen intazar karane ki shakti hi nahin doosare thik gyarah baje bording haus ka daravaza bnd ho jata hai.

dayashnkar - aji chalate-chalate thali samane avegi. mainne to sevati se pahale hi kah diya hai ki nau baje tak saman taiyar rakhana.

anndamohan - tumhara ghar to abhi door hai. yahan mere pairon men chalane ki shakti hi nahin. ao kuchh batachit karate chalen. bhala yah to batao ki parade ke sambandh men tumhara kya vichar hai bhabhi ji mere samane ayengi ya nahin kya main. unake chndramukh ka darshan kar sakoonga sach kaho.

dayashnkar - tumhare aur mere bich men to bhaeechare ka sambandh hai. yadi sevati munh khole hue bhi tumhare sammukh a jay to mujhe koee mlan nahin. kintu sadharanatah main parade ki pratha ka sahayak aur samarthak hoon. kyonki ham logon ki samajik niti itani pavitr nahin hai ki koee stri apane lajja-bhav ko chot pahunchaye bina apane ghar se bahar nikale.

anndamohan - mere vichar men to parda hi kucheshtaon ka mool karan hai. parde se svabhavatah purushon ke chitt men utsukata utpann hoti hai aur vah bhav kabhi to boli-tholi men prakat hota hai aur kabhi netron ke katakshon men.

dayashnkar - jab tak ham log itane dridhapratigy n ho jayn ki satitv-raksha ke pichhe pran bhi balidan kar den tab tak parade ki pratha ko todana samaj ke marg men vish bona hai.

anndamohan - apake vichar se to yahi siddh hota hai ki yoorop men satitv-raksha ke lie rat-din rudhir ki nadiyan baha karati hain.

dayashnkar - vahan isi bepardagi ne to satitv-dharm ko nirmool kar diya hai. abhi mainne kisi samacharapatr men padha tha ki ek stri ne kisi purush par is prakar ka abhiyog chalaya tha ki usane mujhe nirbhikatapoorvak kudrishti se ghoora tha kintu vicharak ne us stri ko nakh-shikh se dekh kar yah kah kar mukadama kharij kar diya ki pratyek manushy ko adhikar hai ki hat-bat men naujavan stri ko ghoor kar dekhe. mujhe to yah abhiyog aur yah phaisala sarvatha hasyaspad jan padate hain aur kisi bhi samaj ko nindit karanevale hain.

anndamohan - is vishay ko chhodo. yah to batao ki is samay kya-kya khilaoge mitr nahin to mitr ki charcha hi ho.

dayashnkar - yah to sevati ki pak-kala-kushalata par nirbhar hai. pooriyan aur kachauriyan to hongi hi. yathasnbhav khoob khari bhi hongi. yathashakti khaste aur samose bhi ayenge. khir adi ke bare men bhavishyavani ki ja sakati hai. aloo aur gobhi ki shorabedar tarakari aur matar dalamot bhi milenge. phirini ke lie bhi kah aya tha. goolar ke kophate aur aloo ke kabab yah donon sevati khoob pakati hai. inake siva dahi-bade aur chatani-achar ki charcha to vyarth hi hai. han shayad kishamish ka rayata bhi mile jisamen kesar ki sugndh udati hogi.

anndamohan - mitr mere munh men to pani bhar aya. tumhari baton ne to mere pairon men jan dal di. shayad par hote to ud kar pahunch jata.

dayashnkar - lo ab to a hi jate hain. yah tambakoovale ki dookan hai isake bad chautha makan mera hi hai.

anndamohan - mere sath baith kar ek hi thali men khana. kahin aisa n ho ki adhik khane ke lie mujhe bhabhi ji ke samane lajjit hona pade.

dayashnkar - isase tum nishshnk raho. unhen mitahari adami se chidh hai ve kahati hain- jo khayega hi nahin duniya men kam kya karega aj shayad tumhari badaulat mujhe bhi kam karanevalon ki pnkti men sthan mil jave. kam se kam koshish to aisi hi karana.

anndamohan - bhee yathashakti cheshta karoonga. shayad tumhen hi pradhanapad mil jaye.

dayashnkar - yah lo a gaye. dekhana sidhiyon par andhera hai. shayad chirag jalana bhool gayi.

anndamohan - koee harj nahin. timiralok hi men to sikndar ko amrit mila tha.

dayashnkar - antar itana hi hai ki timiralok men pair phisale to pani men giroge aur yahan phisala to patharili sadak par.

[jyotisvaroop ate hain ]

jyoti.-sevak bhi upasthit ho gaya. der to nahin huee dabal march karata aya hoon.

dayashnkar - nahin abhi to der nahin huee. shayad apaki bhojanabhilasha apako samay se pahale khinch layi.

anndamohan - apaka parichay karaie. mujhe apase dekha-dekhi nahin hai.

dayashnkar - (angareji men) mere sudoor ke sambandh men sale hote hain. ek vakil ke muharrir hain. jabaradasti nata jod rahe hain. sevati ne nimntran diya hoga mujhe kuchh bhi gyat nahin. ye angareji nahin janate.

anndamohan - itana to achchha hai. angareji men hi baten karenge.

dayashnkar - sara maja kirakira ho gaya. kumanushon ke sath baith kar khana phode ke apreshan ke barabar hai.

anndamohan - kisi upay se inhen vida kar dena chahie.

dayashnkar - mujhe to chinta yah hai ki ab snsar ke karyakarttaon men hamari aur tumhari ganana hi n hogi. pala isake hath rahega.

anndamohan - khair oopar chalo. annd to jab ave ki in mahashay ko adhe pet hi uthana pade.

[tinon adami oopar jate hain ]

dayashnkar - are ! kamare men bhi roshani nahin ghup andhera hai. lala jyotisvaroop dekhiega kahin thokar kha kar n gir padiyega.

anndamohan - are gajab...(alamari se takara kar dhamh se gir padata hai).

dayashnkar - lala jyotisvaroop kya ap gire chot to nahin ayi

anndamohan - aji main gir pada. kamar toot gayi. tumane achchhi davat ki.

dayashnkar - bhale adami saikadon bar to aye ho. maloom nahin tha ki samane alamari rakhi huee hai. kya zyada chot lagi

anndamohan - bhitar jao. thaliyan lao aur bhabhi ji se kah dena ki thoda-sa tel garm kar len. malish kar loonga.

jyoti.-mahashay yah apane kya rakh chhoda hai. zamin par gir pada.

dayashnkar - ugaladan to nahin ludhaka diya han vahi to hai. sara pharsh kharab ho gaya.

a.-bandhuvar ja kar lalaten jala lao. kahan la kar kal-kothari men dal diya.

dayashnkar - (ghar men ja kar) are ! yahan bhi andhera hai ! chirag tak nahin. sevati kahan ho

sevati - baithi to hoon.

dayashnkar - yah bat kya hai chirag kyon nahin jale ! tabiyat to achchhi hai

sevati - bahut achchhi hai. bare tum a to gaye ! mainne samajha tha ki aj apaka darshan hi n hoga.

dayashnkar .- jvar hai kya kab se aya hai

sevati - nahin jvar-svar kuchh nahin chain se baithi hoon.

dayashnkar - tumhara purana bayagola to nahin ubhar aya

sevati - (vyngy se) han bayagola hi to hai. lao koee dava hai

dayashnkar - abhi daktar ke yahan se mngavata hoon.

se.-kuchh muft ki rakam hath a gayi hai kya lao mujhe de do achchhi ho jaoon.

dayashnkar - tum to hnsi kar rahi ho. saph-saph koee bat nahin kahati. kya mere der se ane ka yahi dnd hai mainne nau baje ane ka vachan diya tha. shayad do-char minat adhik hue hon. sab chizen taiyar hain n

sevati - han bahut hi khasta adho-adh makkhan dala tha.

dayashnkar - anndamohan se mainne tumhari khoob prashnsa ki hai.

sevati - eeshvar ne chaha to ve bhi prashnsa hi karenge. pani rakh ao hath-vath to dhoyen.

dayashnkar - chataniyan bhi banava li hain n anndamohan ko chataniyon se bahut prem hai.

sevati - khoob chatani khilao. seron bana rakhi hai.

dayashnkar - pani men kevada dal diya hai

se.-han le ja kar pani rakh ao. pani arambh karen pyas lagi hogi.

anndamohan - (bahar se) mitr shighr ao. ab intajar karane ki shakti nahin hai.

dayashnkar - jaldi macha raha hai. lao thaliyan paraso.

sevati - pahale chatani aur pani to rakh ao.

dayashnkar - (rasoee men ja kar) are ! yahan to choolha bilakul thnda pad gaya hai. mahari aj sabere hi kam kar gayi kya

sevati - han khana pakane se pahale hi a gayi thi.

dayashnkar - bartan sab mnje hue hain. kya kuchh pakaya hi nahin

sevati - bhoot-pret a kar kha gaye honge.

dayashnkar - kya-choolha hi nahin jalaya gajab kar diya.

sevati - gajab mainne kar diya ya tumane

dayashnkar - mainne to sab saman la kar rakh diya tha. tumase bar-bar poochh liya tha ki kisi chiz ki kami ho to batalao. phir khana kyon n paka kya vichitr rahasy hai ! bhala main in donon ko kya munh dikhaoonga.

anndamohan - mitr kya tum akele hi sab samagri chat kar rahe ho idhar bhi log asha lagaye baithe hain. intajar dam tod raha hai.

sevati - yadi sab samagri la kar rakh hi dete to mujhe banane men kya apatti thi

dayashnkar - achchha yadi do-ek vastuon ki kami hi rah gayi thi to isaka kya abhipray ki choolha hi n jale yah to kis aparadh ka dnd diya hai aj holi ka din aur yahan ag hi n jali

sevati - jab tak aise charake n khaoge tumhari ankhen n khulengi.

dayashnkar - tum to paheliyon se baten kar rahi ho. akhir kis bat par aprasann ho mainne kaun-sa aparadh kiya jab main yahan se jane laga tha tum prasannamukh thin aur isake pahale bhi mainne tumhen dukhi nahin dekha tha. to meri anupasthiti men kaun aisi bat ho gayi ki tum itani rooth gayin

sevati - ghar men striyon ko kaid karane ka yah dnd hai.

dayashnkar - achchha to yah is aparadh ka dnd hai magar tumane mujhase parade ki ninda nahin ki. balki is vishay par jab koee bat chhidati thi to tum mere vicharon se sahamat hi rahati thin. mujhe aj hi gyat hua ki tumhen parade se kitani ghrina hai ! kya donon athitiyon se yah kah doon ki parade ki sahayata ke dnd men mere yahan anashan vrat hai ap log thndi-thndi hava khayen

sevati - jo chizen taiyar hain vah ja kar khilao aur jo nahin hain usake lie kshama mango.

dayashnkar - main to koee chiz taiyar nahin dekhata

sevati - hain kyon nahin chatani bana hi dali hai aur pani bhi pahale se taiyar hai.

dayashnkar - yah dillagi to ho chuki. sachamuch batao khana kyon nahin pakaya kya tabiyat kharab ho gayi thi athava kisi kutte ne a kar rasoee apavitr kar di thi

anndamohan - bahar kyon nahin ate ho bhaee bhitar hi bhitar kya misakaut kar rahe ho ab sab chizen nahin taiyar hain nahin sahi jo kuchh taiyar ho vahi lao. is samay to sadi pooriyan bhi khaste se adhik svadisht jan padengi. kuchh lao bhala shriganesh to ho. mujhase adhik utsuk mere mitr munshi jyotisvaroop hain.

sevati - bhaiya ne davat ke intazar men aj dopahar ko bhi n khaya hoga.

dayashnkar - bat kyon talati ho meri baton ka javab kyon nahin detin

sevati - nahin javab deti kya kuchh apaka karz khaya hai ya rasoee banane ke lie laundi hoon

dayashnkar - yadi main ghar ka kam karake apane ko das nahin samajhata to tum ghar ka kam karake apane ko dasi kyon samajhati ho !

sevati - main nahin samajhati tum samajhate ho !

dayashnkar - krodh mujhe ana chahie ulti tum bigad rahi ho.

sevati - tumhen kyon mujh par krodh ana chahie isalie ki tum purush ho

dayashnkar - nahin isalie ki tumane aj mujhe mere mitron tatha sambandhiyon ke sammukh nicha dikhaya.

sevati - nicha dikhaya tumane mujhe ki mainne tumhen tum to kisi prakar kshama kara loge kintu kalima to mere mukh lagegi.

anndamohan - bhee aparadh kshama ho main bhi vahin ata hoon. yahan to kisi padarth ki sugndh tak nahin ati.

dayashnkar - kshama kya kara loonga lachar ho kar bahana karana padega.

sevati - chatani khila kar pani pilao. itana satkar bahut hai. holi ka din hai yah bhi ek prahasan rahega.

dayashnkar - prahasan kya rahega kahin mukh dikhane yogy n rahoonga. akhir tumhen yah kya shararat soojhi

sevati - phir vahi bat ! shararat kyon soojhati ! kya tumase aur tumhare mitron se koee badala lena tha lekin jab lachar ho gayi to kya karati tum to das minat pachhata kar aur mujh par krodh mita kar annd se sooge. yahan to main tin baje se baithi jhink rahi hoon. aur yah sab tumhari karatoot hai.

dayashnkar - yahi to poochhata hoon ki mainne kya kiya

sevati - tumane mujhe pinjare men bnd kar diya par kat diye ! mere samane dana rakh do to khaoon mudhiya men pani dal do to pioon yah kisaka kasoor hai

dayashnkar - bhaee chhipi-chhipi baten n karo. saph-saph kyon nahin kahatin !

anndamohan - vida hota hoon mauj udaie. nahin bazar ki dukann bhi bnd ho jayngi. khoob chakama diye mitr phir samajhenge. lala jyotisvaroop to baithe-baithe apani nirasha ko khurraton se bhula rahe hain. mujhe yah sntosh kahan! tare bhi nahin hain ki baith kar unhen hi ginoon. is samay to svadisht padarthon ka smaran kar raha hoon.

dayashnkar - bndhuvar do minat aur sntosh karo. aya. an ! lala jyotisvaroop se kah do ki kisi halavaee ki dookan se pooriyan le ayen. yahan kam pad gayi hain. aj dopahar hi se inaki tabiyat kharab ho gayi he. mere mej ki daraj men rupaye rakhe hain.

sevati - saph-saph to yahi hai ki tumhare parade ne mujhe pngu bana diya hai. koee mera gala bhi ghont jay to phariyad nahin kar sakati.

dayashnkar - phir bhi vahi anyokti ! is vishay ka ant bhi hoga ya nahin !

se.-diyasalaee to thi hi nahin phir ag kaise jalati !

dayashnkar - aha ! mainne jate samay diyasalaee ki dibiya jeb men rakh li thi...jara-si bat ka tumane itana batngad bana diya. shayad mujhe tng karane ke lie avasar dhoondh rahi thin. kam-se-kam mujhe to aisa hi jan padata hai.

sevati - yah tumhari jyadati hai. jyon hi tum sidhi se utare meri drishti dibiya ki taraph gayi kintu vah lapata thi. tad gayi ki tum le gaye. tum mushkil se daravaze tak pahunche hoge. agar zor se pukarati to tum sun lete. lekin niche dookanadaron ke kan men bhi avaz jati to sun kar tum n jane meri kaun-kaun durdasha karate. hath mal kar rah gayi. usi samay se bahut vyakul ho rahi hoon ki kisi prakar bhi diyasalaee mil jati to achchha hota. magar koee vash n chalata tha. ant men lachar ho kar baith rahi.

dayashnkar - yah kaho ki tum mujhe tng karana chahati thin. nahin to kya ag ya diyasalaee n mil jati

sevati - achchha tum meri jagah hote to kya karate niche sabake sab dookanadar hain. aur tumhari jan-pahachan ke hain. ghar ke ek or pndit ji rahate hain. unake ghar men koee stri nahin. sare din phag huee hai. bahar ke saikadon adami jama the. doosari or bngali baboo rahate hain. unake ghar ki striyan kisi sambandhi se milane gayi hain aur ab tak nahin ayin. in donon se bhi bina dajje par aye chiz n mil sakati thi. lekin shayad tum itani bepardagi ko kshama n karate. aur kaun aisa tha jisase kahati ki kahin se ag la do. mahari tumhare samane hi chauka-bartan karake chali gayi thi. rah-rah kar tumhare oopar krodh ata tha.

dayashnkar - tumhari lachari ka kuchh anuman kar sakata hoon par mujhe ab bhi yah manane men apatti hai ki diyasalaee ka n hona choolha n jalane ka vastavik karan ho sakata hai.

sevati - tumhin se poochhati hoon ki batalao kya karati

dayashnkar - mera man is samay sthir nahin kintu mujhe vishvas hai ki yadi main tumhare sthan par hota to holi ke din aur khasakar jab atithi bhi upasthit hon choolha thnda n rahata. koee-n-koee upay avashy hi nikalata.

sevati - jaise

dayashnkar - ek rukka likh kir kisi dookanadar ke samane phenk deta.

sevati - yadi main aisa karati to shayad tum ankh milane ka mujh par kalnk lagate.

dayashnkar - andhera ho jane par sir se pair tak chadar odh kar bahar nikal jata aur diyasalaee le ata. ghnte-do ghnte men avashy hi kuchh-n-kuchh taiyar ho jata. aisa upavas to n padata.

sevati - bazar jane se mujhe tum gali-gali ghoomanevali kahate aur gala katane par utaroo ho jate. tumane mujhe kabhi itani svatntrata nahin di. yadi kabhi snan karane jati hoon to gadi ka pat bnd rahata hai.

dayashnkar - achchha tum jiti aur main hara. sadaiv ke lie upadesh mil gaya ki aise atyavashyak samay par tumhen ghar se bahar nikalane ki svatntrata hai.

sevati - main to ise akasmik samay nahin kahati. akasmik samay to vah hai ki daivath ghar men koee bimar ho jay aur use daktar ke yahan le jana avashyak ho.

dayashnkar - nissndeh vah samay akasmik hai. is dasha men tumhare jane men koee hastakshep nahin.

sevati - aur bhi akasmik samay ginaoon

dayashnkar - nahin bhaee isaka phaisala tumhari buddhi par nirbhar hai.

sevati - mitr sntosh ki sima to ant ho gayi ab pran-pida ho rahi hai. eeshvar kare ghar abad rahe bida hota hoon.

dayashnkar - bas ek minat aur. upasthit hua.

sevati - chatani aur pani lete jao aur pooriyan bazar se mngava lo. isake siva is samay ho hi kya sakata hai

dayashnkar - (maradane kamare men akar) pani laya hoon pyaliyon men chatani hai. ap log jab tak bhog lagaven. main abhi ata hoon.

anndamohan - dhany hai eeshvar ! bhala tum bahar to nikale ! mainne to samajha tha ki ekantavas karane lage. magar nikale bhi to chataniyan le kar. vah svadisht vastuen kya hueen jinaka apane vada kiya tha aur jinaka smaran main premanurakt bhav se kar raha hoon

dayashnkar - jyotisvaroop kahan gaye

sevati - oorddhv snsar men bhraman kar rahe hain. bada hi adbhut udasin manushy hai ki ate hi ate so gaya aur abhi tak nahin chaunka.

dayashnkar - mere yahan ek durghatana ho gayi. use aur kya kahoon. sab saman maujood aur choolhe men ag n jali.

anndamohan - khoob ! yah ek hi rahi. lakadiyan n rahi hongi.

dayashnkar - ghar men to lakadiyon ka pahad laga hai. abhi thode hi din hue ki ganv se ek gadi lakadi a gayi thi. diyasalaee n thi.

anndamohan - (attahas kar) vah ! yah achchha prahasan hua. thodi-si bhool ne sara svapn hi nasht kar diya. kam se kam meri to badhiya baith gayi.

dayashnkar - kya kahoon mitr lajjit hoon. tumase saty kahata hoon. aj se main parade ka shatru ho gaya. is nigodi pratha ke bandhan ne thik holi ke din aisa vishvasaghat kiya ki jisaki kabhi bhi snbhavana n thi. achchha ab batalao bazar se laoon pooriyan abhi to taji mil jayngi.

anndamohan - bazar ka rasta to mainne bhi dekha hai. kasht n karo. ja kar bording haus men kha loonga. rahe ye mahashay mere vichar men to inhen chhedana thik nahin. pade-pade kharrate lene do. pratahkal chaunkenge to ghar ka marg pakadenge.

dayashnkar - tumhara yon vapas jana mujhe khal raha hai. kya socha tha kya hua ! maje le-le kar samose aur kophte khate aur gapadachauth machate. sabhi ashaen mitti men mil gayin. eeshvar ne chaha to shighr hi isaka prayashchitt karoonga.

anndamohan - mujhe is bat ki prasannata hai ki tumhara siddhant toot gaya. ab itani agya do ki bhabhi ji ko dhanyavad de aoon.

dayashnkar - shauq se jao.

anndamohan - (bhitar ja kar) bhabhi ji sashtang pranam kar raha hoon. yadyapi aj ke akashi bhoj se mujhe durasha to avashy huee kintu vah us anand ke samane shoony hai jo bhaee sahab ke vichar-parivartan se hua hai. aj ek diyasalaee ne jo shiksha pradan ki hai vah lakhon pramanik pramanon se bhi snbhav nahin hai. isake lie main apako saharsh dhanyavad deta hoon. ab se bandhuvar parade ke pakshapati ne honge yah mera atal vishvas hai.
