Icon-edit.gif is lekh ka punarikshan evn sampadan hona avashyak hai. ap isamen sahayata kar sakate hain. "sujhav"

baboo eeshvarachndr ko samacharapatron men lekh likhane ki chat unhin dinon padi jab ve vidyabhyas kar rahe the. nity naye vishayon ki chinta men lin rahate. patron men apana nam dekh kar unhen usase kahin zyada khushi hoti thi jitani parikshaon men uttirn hone ya kaksha men uchch sthan prapt karane se ho sakati thi. vah apane kalej ke garam-dal ke neta the. samacharapatron men parikshapatron ki jatilata ya adhyapakon ke anuchit vyavahar ki shikayat ka bhar unhin ke sir tha. isase unhen kalej men pratinidhitv ka kam mil gaya. pratirodh ke pratyek avasar par unhin ke nam netritv ki goti pad jati thi. unhen vishvas ho gaya ki main is parimit kshetr se nikal kar snsar ke vistrit kshetr men adhik saphal ho sakata hoon. sarvajanik jivan ko vah apana bhagy samajh baithe the. kuchh aisa snyog hua ki abhi em.e. pariksharthiyon men unaka nam nikalane bhi n paya tha ki gaurav ke sampadak mahoday ne vanaprasth lene ki thani aur patrika ka bhar eeshvarachndr datt ke sir par rakhane ka nishchay kiya. baboo ji ko yah samachar mila to uchhal pade. dhany bhagy ki main is sammanit pad ke yogy samajha gaya ! isamen sndeh nahin ki vah is dayitv ke gurutv se bhali-bhanti parichit the lekin kirtilabh ke prem ne unhen badhak paristhitiyon ka samana karane par udyat kar diya. vah is vyavasay men svatntray atmagaurav anushilan aur dayitv ki matr ko badhana chahate the. bharatiy patron ko pashchim ke adarsh par chalane ke ichchhuk the. in iradon ke poora karane ka suavasar hath aya. ve premollas se uttejit ho kar nali men kood pade.

eeshvarachndr ki patni ek oonche aur dhanadhy kul ki ladaki thi aur vah aise kulon ki maryadapriyata tatha mithya gauravaprem se sampann thi. yah samachar pa kar dari ki pati mahashay kahin is jhnjhat men phns kar qanoon se munh n mod len. lekin jab baboo sahab ne ashvasan diya ki yah kary unake qanoon ke abhyas men badhak n hoga to kuchh n boli.

lekin eeshvarachndr ko bahut jald maloom ho gaya ki patr sampadan ek bahut hi eershyayukt kary hai jo chitt ki samagr vrittiyon ka apaharan kar leta hai. unhonne ise manornjan ka ek sadhan aur khyatilabh ka ek yntr samajha tha. usake dvara jati ki kuchh seva karana chahate the. usase dravyoparjan ka vichar tak n kiya tha. lekin nauka men baith kar unhen anubhav hua ki yatr utani sukhad nahin hai jitani samajhi thi. lekhon ke snshodhan parivardhan aur parivartan lekhakagan se patr-vyavahar aur chittakarshak vishayon ki khoj aur sahayogiyon se age badh jane ki chinta men unhen qanoon ka adhyayan karane ka avakash hi n milata tha. subah ko kitaben khol kar baithate ki 100 prishth samapt kiye bina kadapi n uthoonga kintu jyon hi dak ka pulinda a jata ve adhir ho kar us par toot padate kitab khuli ki khuli rah jati thi. bar-bar snkalp karate ki ab niyamit roop se pustakavalokan karoonga aur ek nirdisht samay se adhik sampadanakary men n lagaoonga. lekin patrikaon ka bndal samane ate hi dil kaboo ke bahar ho jata. patron ke nok-jhonk patrikaon ke tark-vitark alochana-pratyalochana kaviyon ke kavyachamatkar lekhakon ka rachanakaushal ityadi sabhi baten un par jadoo ka kam karatin. is par chhapaee ki kathinaiyan grahak-snkhya badhane ki chinta aur patrika ko sarvang-sundar banane ki akanksha aur bhi pranon ko snkat men dale rahati thi. kabhi-kabhi unhen khed hota ki vyarth hi is jhamele men pada yahan tak ki pariksha ke din sir par a gaye aur ve isake lie bilakul taiyar n the. ve usamen sammilit n hue. man ko samajhaya ki abhi is kam ka shriganesh hai isi karan yah sab badhaen upasthit hoti hain. agale varsh yah kam ek suvyavasthit roop men a jayaga aur tab main nishchint ho kar pariksha men baithoonga ! pas kar lena kya kathin hai. aise buddhoo pas ho jate hain jo ek sidha-sa lekh bhi nahin likh sakate to kya main hi rah jaoonga manaki ne unaki yah baten sunin to khoob dil ke phaphole phode- main to janati thi ki yah dhun tumhen matiyamet kar degi. isalie bar-bar rokati thi lekin tumane meri ek n suni. ap to doobe hi mujhe bhi le doobe. unake poojy pita bhi bigade hitaishiyon ne bhi samajhaya- abhi is kam ko kuchh dinon ke lie sthagit kar do qanoon men uttirn ho kar nirdvndv deshoddhar men pravritt ho jana. lekin eeshvarachndr ek bar maidan men a kar bhagana nindy samajhate the. han unhonne dridh pratigya ki ki doosare sal pariksha ke lie tan-man se taiyari karoonga. atev naye varsh ke padarpan karate hi unhonne qanoon ki pustaken sngrah kin pathyakram nishchit kiya rojanamacha likhane lage aur apane chnchal aur bahanebaj chitt ko charon or se jakada magar chatapate padarthon ka asvadan karane ke bad saral bhojan kab ruchikar hota hai ! qanoon men ve ghaten kahan vah unmad kahan ve choten kahan vah uttejana kahan vah halachal kahan ! baboo sahab ab nity ek khoyi huee dasha men rahate. jab tak apane ichchhanukool kam karate the chaubis ghnton men ghnte-do ghnte qanoon bhi dekh liya karate the. is nashe ne manasik shaktiyon ko shithil kar diya. snayu nirjiv ho gaye. unhen gyat hone laga ki ab tain qanoon ke layaq nahin raha aur is gyan ne qanoon ke prati udasinata ka roop dharan kiya. man men sntoshavritti ka pradurbhav hua. prarabdh aur poorvasnskar ke siddhanton ki sharan lene lage.

ek din manaki ne kaha-yah kya bat hai kya qanoon se phir ji uchat hua

eeshvarachndr ne dussahasapoorn bhav se uttar diya-han bhee mera ji usase bhagata hai.

manaki ne vyngy se kaha-bahut kathin hai

eeshvarachndr-kathin nahin hai aur kathin bhi hota to main usase darane vala n tha lekin mujhe vakalat ka pesha hi patit pratit hota hai. jyon-jyon vakilon ki antarik dasha ka gyan hota hai mujhe us peshe se ghrina hoti jati hai. isi shahar men saikadon vakil aur bairistar pade hue hain lekin ek vyakti bhi aisa nahin jisake hriday men daya ho jo svarthaparata ke hathon bik n gaya ho. chhal aur dhoortata is peshe ka mool tattv hai. isake bina kisi tarah nirvah nahin. agar koee mahashay jatiy andolan men sharik bhi hote hain to svarthasiddhi karane ke lie apana dhol pitane ke lie. ham logon ka samagr jivan vasana-bhakti par arpit ho jata hai. durbhagy se hamare desh ka shikshit samuday isi daragah ka mujavar hota jata hai aur yahi karan hai ki hamari jatiy snsthaon ki shrivriddhi nahin hoti. jis kam men hamara dil n ho ham keval khyati aur svarth-labh ke lie usake karnadhar bane hue hon vah kabhi nahin ho sakata. vartaman samajik vyavastha ka anyay hai jisane is peshe ko itana uchch sthan pradan kar diya hai. yah videshi sabhyata ka nikrishtatam svaroop hai ki desh ka buddhibal svayn dhanoparjan n karake doosaron ki paida ki huee daulat par chain karata shahad ki makkhi n ban kar chinti banana apane jivan ka lakshy samajhata hai.

manaki chidh kar boli-pahale tum vakilon ki itani ninda n karate the !

eeshvarachndr ne uttar diya-tab anubhav n tha. bahari timatam ne vashikaran kar diya tha.

manaki-kya jane tumhen patron se kyon itana prem hai main jise dekhati hoon apani kathinaiyon ka rona rote hue pati hoon. koee apane grahakon se naye grahak banane ka anurodh karata hai koee chnda n vasool hone ki shikayat karata hai. bata do ki koee uchch shiksha prapt manushy kabhi is peshe men aya hai. jise kuchh nahin soojhati jisake pas n koee sanad ho n koee digri vahi patr nikal baithata hai aur bhookhon marane ki apeksha rookhi rotiyon par hi sntosh karata hai. log vilayat jate hain vahan koee daktari padhata hai koee injiniyari koee sivil sarvis lekin aj tak n suna ki koee editari ka kam sikhane gaya. kyon sikhe kisi ko kya padi hai ki jivan ki mahattvakankshaon ko khak men mila kar tyag aur virag men umr kate han jinako sanak savar ho gayi ho unaki bat nirali hai.

eeshvarachndr-jivan ka uddeshy keval dhan-snchay karana hi nahin hai.

manaki-abhi tumane vakilon ki ninda karate hue kaha yah log doosaron ki kamaee kha kar mote hote hain. patr chalanevale bhi to doosaron ki hi kamaee khate hain.

eeshvarachndr ne bagalen jhankate hue kaha-ham log doosaron ki kamaee khate hain to doosaron par jan bhi dete hain. vakilon ki bhanti kisi ko lootate nahin.

manaki-yah tumhari hathadharmi hai. vakil bhi to apane muvakkilon ke lie jan lada dete hain. unaki kamaee bhi utani hi hai jitani patravalon ki. antar keval itana hai ki ek ki kamaee pahadi òota hai doosare ki barasati nala. ek men nity jalapravah hota hai doosare men nity dhool uda karati hai. bahut hua to barasat men ghadi-do ghadi ke lie pani a gaya.

eeshvar.-pahale to main yahi nahin manata ki vakilon ki kamaee halal hai aur yah man bhi loon to yah kisi tarah nahin man sakata ki sabhi vakil phoolon ki sej par sote hain. apana-apana bhagy sabhi jagah hai. kitane hi vakil hain jo jhoothi gavahiyan de kar pet palate hain. is desh men samacharapatron ka prachar abhi bahut kam hai isi karan patrasnchalakon ki arthik dasha achchhi nahin hai. yoorop aur amarika men patr chala kar log karodapati ho gaye hain. is samay snsar ke sabhi samunnat deshon ke sootradhar ya to samacharapatron ke sampadak aur lekhak hain ya patron ke svami. aise kitane hi arabapati hain jinhonne apani sampatti ki ninv patron par hi khadi ki thi...

eeshvarachndr siddh karana chahate the ki dhan khyati aur samman prapt karane ka patr-snchalan se uttam aur koee sadhan nahin hai aur sabase badi bat to yah hai ki is jivan men saty aur nyay ki raksha karane ke sachche avasar milate hain parntu manaki par is vaktrita ka jara bhi asar n hua. sthool drishti ko door ki chizen saf nahin dikhatin. manaki ke samane saphal sampadak ka koee udaharan n tha.

16 varsh gujar gaye. eeshvarachndr ne sampadakiy jagath men khoob nam paida kiya jatiy andolanon men agrasar hue pustaken likhin ek dainik patr nikala adhikariyon ke bhi sammanapatr hue. bada ladaka bi. e. men ja pahuncha chhote ladake niche ke darajon men the. ek ladaki ka vivah bhi ek dhanasampann kul men kiya hai. vidit yahi hota tha ki unaka jivan bada hi sukhamay hai magar unaki arthik dasha ab bhi sntoshajanak n thi. kharch amadani se badha hua tha. ghar ki kee hazar ki jayadad hath se nikal gayi is par baink ka kuchh n kuchh dena sir par savar rahata tha. bazar men bhi unaki sakh n thi. kabhi-kabhi to yahan tak naubat a jati ki unhen bazar ka rasta chhodana padata. ab vah aksar apani yuvavastha ki adooradarshita par afasos karate the. jatiy seva ka bhav ab bhi unake hriday men tarngen marata tha lekin vah dekhate the ki kam to main tay karata hoon aur yash vakilon aur sethon ke hisson men a jata tha. unaki ginati abhi tak chhutabhaiyon men thi. yadyapi sara nagar janata tha ki yahan ke sarvajanik jivan ke pran vahi hain par yah bhav kabhi vyakt n hota tha. inhin karanon se eeshvarachndr ko sampadan kary se aruchi hoti thi. dinondin utsah kshin hota jata tha lekin is jal se nikalane ka koee upay n soojhata tha. unaki rachana men sajivata n thi n lekhani men shakti. unake patr aur patrika donon hi se udasinata ka bhav jhalakata tha. unhonne sara bhar sahayakon par chhod diya tha khud bahut kam kam karate the. han donon patron ki jad jam chuki thi isalie grahak-snkhya kam n hone pati thi. ve apane nam par chalate the.

lekin is sngharsh aur sngram ke kal men udasinata ka nirvah kahan. gaurav ne pratiyogi khade kar diye jinake navin utsah ne gaurav se bazi mar li. usaka bazar thnda hone laga. naye pratiyogiyon ka janata ne bade harsh se svagat kiya. unaki unnati hone lagi. yadyapi unake siddhant bhi vahi lekhak bhi vahi vishay bhi vahi the lekin agntukon ne unhin purani baton men nayi jan dal di. unaka utsah dekh eeshvarachndr ko bhi josh aya ki ek bar phir apani ruki huee gadi men zor lagayen lekin n apane men samarthy thi n koee hath bntanevala najar ata tha. idhar-udhar nirash netron se dekh kar hatotsah ho jate the. ha ! mainne apana sara jivan sarvajanik karyon men vyatit kiya khet ko boya sincha din ko din aur rat ko rat n samajha dhoop men jala pani men bhiga aur itane parishram ke bad jab phasal katane ke din aye to mujhamen hnsiya pakadane ka bhi boota nahin. doosare log jinaka us samay kahin pata n tha anaj kat-kat kar khalihan bhare lete hain aur main khada munh takata hoon. unhen poora vishvas tha ki agar koee utsahashil yuvak mera sharik ho jata to gaurav ab bhi apane pratidvndviyon ko parast kar sakata. sabhy-samaj men unaki dhak jami huee thi paristhiti unake anukool thi. zaroorat keval taje khoon ki thi. unhen apane bade ladake se zyada upayukt is kam ke lie aur koee n dikhata tha. usaki ruchi bhi is kam ki or thi par manaki ke bhay se vah is vichar ko jaban par n la sake the. isi chinta men do sal gujar gaye aur yahan tak naubat pahunchi ki ya to gaurav ka tat ulat diya jay ya ise punah apane sthan par pahunchane ke lie katibaddh hua jay. eeshvarachndr ne isake punuruddhar ke lie antim udyog karane ka dridh nishchay kar liya. isake siva aur koee upay n tha. yah patrika unake jivan ka sarvasv thi. isase unake jivan aur mrityu ka sambandh tha. usako bnd karane ki vah kalpana bhi n kar sakate the. yadyapi unaka svasthy achchha n tha par pranaraksha ki svabhavik ichchha ne unhen apana sab kuchh apani patrika par nyochhavar karane ko udyat kar diya. phir din ke din likhane-padhane men rat rahane lage. ek kshan ke lie bhi sir n uthate. gaurav ke lekhon men phir sajivata ka udbhav hua vidvajjanon men phir usaki charcha hone lagi sahayogiyon ne phir usake lekhon ko uddhrit karana shuroo kiya patrikaon men phir usaki prashnsasoochak alochanaen nikalane lagin. purane ustad ki lalakar phir akhade men goonjane lagi.

lekin patrika ke punah snskar ke sath unaka sharir aur bhi jarjar hone laga. hridrog ke lakshan dikhaee dene lage. rakt ki nyoonata se mukh par pilapan chha gaya. aisi dasha men vah subah se sham tak apane kam men tallin rahate dhan aur shram ka sngram chhida hua tha. eeshvarachndr ki saday prakriti ne unhen shram ka sapakshi bana diya tha. dhanavadiyon ka khndan aur prativad karate hue unake khoon men garami a jati thi shabdon se chinagariyan nikalane lagati thin yadyapi yah chinagariyan kendrasth garami ko chhinn kiye deti thin.

ek din rat ke das baj gaye the. saradi khoob pad rahi thi. manaki dabe pair unake kamare men ayi. dipak ki jyoti men unake mukh ka pilapan aur bhi spasht ho gaya tha. vah hath men kalam liye kisi vichar men magn the. manaki ke ane ki unhen bhi ahat n mili. manaki ek kshan tak unhen vedana-yukt netron se takati rahi. tab boli ab to yah potha bnd karo. adhi rat hone ko ayi. khana pani hua jata hai.

eeshvarachndr ne chaunk kar sir uthaya aur bole-kyon kya adhi rat ho gayi nahin abhi mushkil se das baje honge. mujhe abhi jara bhi bhookh nahin hai.

manaki-kuchh thoda-sa kha lo n.

eeshvar.-ek gras bhi nahin. mujhe isi samay apana lekh samapt karana hai.

manaki-main dekhati hoon tumhari dasha din-din bigadati jati hai. dava kyon nahin karate jan khapa kar thode hi kam kiya jata hai

eeshvar.-apani jan ko dekhoon ya is ghor sngram ko dekhoon jisane samast desh men halachal macha rakhi hai. hajaron-lakhon janon ki himayat men ek jan n bhi rahe to kya chinta

manaki-koee suyogy sahayak kyon nahin rakh lete

eeshvarachndr ne thndi sans le kar kaha-bahut khojata hoon par koee nahin milata. ek vichar kee dinon se mere man men uth raha hai agar tum dhairy se sunana chaho to kahoon.

manaki-kaho sunoongi. manane layaq hogi to manoongi kyon nahin !

eeshvarachndr-main chahata hoon ki krishnachndr ko apane kam men sharik kar loon. ab to vah em.e. bhi ho gaya. is peshe se use ruchi bhi hai maloom hota hai ki eeshvar ne use isi kam ke lie banaya hai.

manaki ne avahelana-bhav se kaha-kya apane sath use bhi le doobane ka irada hai ghar ki seva karane vala bhi koee chahie ki sab desh ki hi seva karenge

eeshvar.-krishnachndr yahan kisi se bura n rahega.

manaki-kshama kijie. baj ayi. vah koee doosara kam karega jahan char paise milen. yah ghar-phoonk kam ap hi ko mubarak rahe.

eeshvar.-vakalat men bhejogi par dekh lena pachhatana padega. krishnachndr us peshe ke lie sarvatha ayogy hai.

manaki-vah chahe majoori kare par is kam men n daloongi.

eeshvar.-tumane mujhe dekh kar samajh liya ki is kam men ghata hi ghata hai. par isi desh men aise bhagyavan log maujood hain jo patron ki badaulat dhan aur kirti se malamal ho rahe hain.

manaki-is kam men to agar knchan bhi barase to main use n ane doon. sara jivan vairagy men kat gaya. ab kuchh din bhog bhi karana chahati hoon.

yah jati ka sachcha sevak ant ko jatiy kashton ke sath rog ke kashton ko n sah saka. is vartalap ke bad mushkil se nau mahine gujare the ki eeshvarachndr ne snsar se prasthan kiya. unaka sara jivan saty ke poshan nyay ki raksha aur praja-kashton ke virodh men kata tha. apane siddhanton ke palan men unhen kitani hi bar adhikariyon ki tivr drishti ka bhajan banana pada tha kitani hi bar janata ka avishvas yahan tak ki mitron ki avahelana bhi sahani padi thi par unhonne apani atma ka kabhi hanan nahin kiya. atma ke gaurav ke samane dhan ko kuchh n samajha.

is shok samachar ke phailate hi sare shahar men kuharam mach gaya. bazar bnd ho gaye shok ke jalase hone lage sahayogi patron ne pratidvndvita ke bhav ko tyag diya charon or se ek dhvani ati thi ki desh se ek svatntr satyavadi aur vicharashil sampadak tatha ek nirbhik tyagi deshabhakt uth gaya aur usaka sthan chirakal tak khali rahega. eeshvarachndr itane bahujanapriy hain isaka unake gharavalon ko dhyan bhi n tha. unaka shav nikala to sara shahar gany-agany arthi ke sath tha. unake smarak banane lage. kahin chhatravrittiyan di gayin kahin unake chitr banavaye gaye par sabase adhik mahattvashil vah moorti thi jo shramajiviyon ki or se pratishthit huee thi.

manaki ko apane patidev ka lokasamman dekh kar sukhamay kutoohal hota tha. use ab khed hota tha ki mainne unake divy gunon ko n pahachana unake pavitr bhavon aur uchch vicharon ki kadr n ki. sara nagar unake lie shok mana raha hai. unaki lekhani ne avashy inake aise upakar kiye hain jinhen ye bhool nahin sakate aur main ant tak unaka marg-kntak bani rahi sadaiv trishna ke vash unaka dil dukhati rahi. unhonne mujhe sone men madh diya hota ek bhavy bhavan banavaya hota ya koee jayadad paida kar li hoti to main khush hoti apana dhany bhagy samajhati. lekin tab desh men kaun unake lie ansoo bahata kaun unaka yash gata yahin ek se ek dhanik purush pade hue hain. ve duniya se chale jate hain aur kisi ko khabar bhi nahin hoti. sunati hoon patidev ke nam se chhatron ko vritti di jayagi. jo ladake vritti pa kar vidya-labh karenge ve marate dam tak unaki atma ko ashirvad denge. shok ! mainne unake atmatyag ka marm n jana. svarth ne meri ankhon par parda dal diya tha.

manaki ke hriday men jyon-jyon ye bhavanaen jagrit hoti thin use pati men shraddha badhati jati thi. vah gauravashila stri thi. is kirtigan aur janasamman se usaka mastishk ooncha ho jata tha. isake uparant ab usaki arthik dasha pahale ki-si chintajanak n thi. krishnachndr ke asadharan adhyavasay aur buddhibal ne unaki vakalat ko chamaka diya tha. vah jatiy kamon men avashy bhag lete the patron men yathashakti lekh bhi likhate the is kam se unhen vishesh prem tha. lekin manaki hamesha in kamon se door rakhane ki cheshta karati thi. krishnachndr apane oopar jabr karate the. man ka dil dukhana unhen mnjoor n tha.

eeshvarachndr ki pahali barasi thi. sham ko brahmabhoj hua. adhi rat tak garibon ko khana diya gaya. pratahkal manaki apani sejagadi par baithakar gnga nahane gayi. yah usaki chirasnchit abhilasha thi jo ab putr ki matribhakti ne poori kar di thi. yah udhar se laut rahi thi ki usake kanon men baind ki avaz ayi aur ek kshan ke bad ek juloos samane ata hua dikhayi diya. pahale kotal ghodon ki mala thi usake bad ashvarohi svaynsevakon ki sena. usake pichhe saikadon savarigadiyan thin. sabase pichhe ek saje hue rath par kisi devata ki moorti thi. kitane hi adami is viman ko khinch rahe the. manaki sochane lagi- yah kis devata ka viman hai n to ramalila ke hi din hain n rathayatr ke ! sahasa usaka dil zor se uchhal pada. yah eeshvarachndr ki moorti thi jo shramajiviyon ki or se banavayi gayi thi aur log use bade maidan men sthapit karane ke lie liye jate the. vahi svaroop tha vahi vastr vahi mukhakriti. moortikar ne vilakshan kaushal dikhaya tha. manaki ka hriday banson uchhalane laga. utkntha huee ki parade se nikal kar is juloos ke sammukh pati ke charanon par gir padoon. patthar ki moorti manav-sharir se adhik shraddhaspad hoti hai. kintu kaun munh le kar moorti ke samane jaoon usaki atma ne kabhi usaka itana tiraskar n kiya tha. meri dhanalipsa unake pairon ki bedi n banati to vah n jane kis samman pad par pahunchate. mere karan unhen kitana kshobh hua ! gharavalon ki sahanubhooti baharavalon ke samman se kahin utsahajanak hoti hai. main inhen kya kuchh n bana sakati thi par kabhi ubharane n diya. svami ji mujhe kshama karo main tumhari aparadhini hoon mainne tumhare pavitr bhavon ki hatya ki hai mainne tumhari atma ko duahkhi kiya hai. mainne baj ko pinjade men band karake rakha tha. shok !

sare din manaki ko vahi pashchattap hota raha. sham ko usase n raha gaya. vah apani kaharin ko le kar paidal us devata ke darshan ko chali jisaki atma ko usane duahkh pahunchaya tha !

sndhya ka samay tha. akash par lalima chhayi thi. astachal ki or kuchh badal bhi ho aye the. sooryadev kabhi meghapat men chhip jate the kabhi bahar nikal ate the. is dhoop-chhanh men eeshvarachndr ki moorti door se kabhi prabhat ki bhanti prasannmukh aur kabhi sndhya ki bhanti malin dekh padati thi. manaki usake nikat gayi par usake mukh ki or n dekh saki. un ankhon men karun-vedana thi. manaki ko aisa maloom hua mano vah meri or tiraskarapoorn bhav se dekh rahi hai. usaki ankhon se glani aur lajja ke ansoo bahane lage. vah moorti ke charanon par gir padi aur munh dhanp kar rone lagi. man ke bhav dravit ho gaye.

vah ghar ayi to nau baj gaye the. krishn use dekh kar bole-amman aj ap is vakt kahan gayi thin.

manaki ne harsh se kaha-gayi thi tumhare baboo ji ki pratima ke darshan karane. aisa maloom hota hai vahi sakshath khade hain.

krishn-jayapur se ban kar ayi hai.

manaki-pahale to log unaka itana adar n karate the

krishn-unaka sara jivan saty aur nyay ki vakalat men gujara hai. aise hi mahatmaon ki pooja hoti hai.

manaki-lekin unhonne vakalat kab ki

krishn-han yah vakalat nahin ki jo main aur mere hajaron bhaee kar rahe hain jisase nyay aur dharm ka khoon ho raha hai. unaki vakalat uchchakoti ki thi.

manaki-agar aisa hai to tum bhi vahi vakalat kyon nahin karate

krishn-bahut kathin hai. duniya ka jnjal apane sir lijie doosaron ke lie roie dinon ki raksha ke lie latth liye phirie aur is kasht apaman aur yntrana ka puraskar kya hai apani jivanabhilashaon ki hatya.

manaki-lekin yash to hota hai.

krishn-han yash hota hai. log ashirvad dete hain.

manaki-jab itana yash milata hai to tum bhi vahi kam karo. ham log us pavitr atma ki aur kuchh seva nahin kar sakate to usi vatika ko chalate jayn jo unhonne apane jivan men itane utsarg aur bhakti se lagayi. isase unaki atma ko shanti hogi.

krishnachandr ne mata ko shraddhamay netron se dekh kar kaha-karoon to magar snbhav hai tab yah tim-tam n nibh sake. shayad phir vahi pahale ki-si dasha ho jay.

manaki-koee haraj nahin. snsar men yash to hoga aj to agar dhan ki devi bhi mere samane aye to main ankhen n nichi karoon.
