katha

ek budhiya thi jisake sat bete the. uname se chhah kamate the aur ek n kamane vala tha. vah budhiya un chh: ko achchhi rasoee banakar bade prem se khilati par sataven ko bacha-khucha jhoothan khilati thi. parantu vah bhola tha atah man men kuchh bhi vichar nahin karata tha. ek din vah apani patni se bola – dekho meri mata ko mujhase kitana prem hai? usane kaha vah tumhen sabhi ki jhoothan khilati hai, phir bhi tum aisa kahate ho chahe to tum samay ane par dekh sakate ho.

ek din bahut bada tyohar aya. budhiya ne sat prakar ke bhojan aur choorame ke laddoo banae. satavan ladaka yah bat janchane ke lie sir dukhane ka bahana karake patala kapada odhakar so gaya aur dekhane laga man ne unako bahut achchhe asanon par bithaya aur sat prakar ke bhojan aur laddoo parose. vah unhen bade prem se khila rahi hai. jab ve chh: uth ge to man ne unaki thaliyon se jhoothan ikatthi ki aur unase ek laddoo banaya. phir vah sataven ladake se boli "are roti khale", vah bola 'man main bhojan nahin karoonga main to paradesh ja raha hoon.’ man ne kaha – ‘kal jata hai to aj hi chala ja.’ vah ghar se nikal gaya. chalate samay use apani patni ki yad ayi jo goshala men knde thap rahi thi.

vah bola: ham videsh ko ja rahe hai,

aenge kachhu kal.

tum rahiyo sntosh se, dharam apanon pal.

is par usaki patni boli:-

jao piya anand se, hamari soch hatae.

ram bharose ham rahe, eeshvar tumhen sahay.

dehu nishani apani, dekh dharoon main dhir.

sudhi hamari na bisariyo, rakhiyo man gnbhir.


is par vah ladaka bola: mere pas kuchh nahin hai. yah angoothi hai so le aur mujhe bhi apani koee nishani de de.

vah boli mere pas kya hai? yah gobar bhare hath hai. yah kahakar usane usaki pith par gobar bhare hath ki thap mar di. vah ladaka chal diya. aisa kahate hai, isi karan se vivah men patni pati ki pith par hath ka chhapa marati hai.

chalate samay vah door desh men pahuncha. vah ek vyapari ki dukan par jakar bola ‘bhaee mujhe naukari par rakh lo.’ vyapari ko naukar ki jarurat thi. atah bola tankhvah kam dekhakar denge. tum rah jao. vah savere 7 baje se rat ki 12 baje tak naukari karane laga. thode hi dinon men sara len den aur hisab – kitab karane laga. seth ke 7-8 naukar chakkar khane lage. seth ne use do tin mahine men adhe munaphe ka hissedar bana diya. barah varsh men vah nami seth ban gaya aur usaka malik usake bharose kam chhodakar kahin bahar chala gaya.

udhar usaki aurat ko sas aur jithaniyan bada kasht dene lagi. ve use lakadi lene jngal men bhejati. bhoose ki roti deti, phoote nariyal men pani deti. vah bade kasht se jivan bitati thi. ek din jab vah lakadi lene ja rahi thi to raste men usane kee auraton ko vrat karate dekha.

vah poochhane lagi: bahanon yah kisaka vrat hai, kaise karate hai aur isase kya phal milata hai?

to ek stri boli: yah sntoshi mata ka vrat hai isake karane se manovanchhit phal milata hai, isase garibi, man ki chintaen, raj ke mukaddame. kalah, rog nasht hote hai aur sntan, sukh, dhan, prasannata, shanti, man pasnd var mile v bahar gaye hue pati ke darshan hote hai.’ usane use vrat karane ki vidhi bata di.

usane raste men sari lakadiyan bech di v gud aur chana le liya. usane vrat karane ki taiyari ki. usane samane ek mndir dekha to poochhane lagi yah mndir kisaka hai?

vah kahane lage: yah sntoshi mata ka mndir hai. vah mndir men gee aur mata ke charanon men lotane lagi. vah dukhi hokar vinati karane lagi ‘man ! main agyani hoon! main bahut dukhi hoon! main tumhari sharan men hoon! mera duahkh door karo!’ mata ko daya a gayi. ek shukravar ko usake pati ka patr aya aur agale shukravar ko pati ka bheja hua dhan mila. ab to jeth jethani aur sas nak sikod ke kahane lage. ab to isaki khatir badhegi, yah bulane par bhi nahin bolegi.

vah boli: patr aur dhan ave to sabhi ko achchha hain.’ usaki ankhon men ansoo a gaye. vah mndir men gee aur mata ke charanon men girakar boli he man! mainne tumase paisa kab manga tha? mujhe to apana suhag chahiye. main to apane svami ke darshan aur seva karana mangati hoon. tab mata ne prasann hokar kaha– ‘ja beti tera pati avega.’ vah badi prasannata se ghar gee aur ghar ka kam kaj karane lagi. udhar sntoshi mata ne usake pati ko svapn men ghar jane aur patni ki yad dilaee. usane kaha man main kaise jaoon, paradesh ki bat hai, len – den ka koee hisab nahin hai.’ man ne kaha meri bat man savere naha – dhokar mera nam lekar ghi ka dipak jalakar dndavat karake dukan par baithana. dekhate dekhate sara len – den saf ho jayega. dhan ka dher lag jayega.

savere usane apane svapn ki bat sabhi se kahi to sab hnsi udane lage. ve kahane lage ki kahin sapane bhi saty hote hai. par ek boodhe ne kaha bhaee ! jaise mata ne kaha hai vaise karane men ka dar hai?’ usane naha dhokar, mata ko dndavat karake ghi ka dipak jalaya aur dukan par jakar baith jaya. thodi hi der men sara len den saf ho gaya, sara mal bik gaya aur dhan ka dher lag gaya. vah prasann hua aur ghar ke lie gahane aur saman vagerah kharidane laga. vah jaldi hi ghar ko ravana ho gaya.

udhar bechari usaki patni roz lakadiyan lene jati aur roz sntoshi mata ki seva karati. usane mata se poochha – he man ! yah dhool kaisi ud rahi hai? mata ne kaha tera pati a raha hai. toon lakadiyon ke tin bojh bana len. ek nadi ke kinare rakh, ek yahan rakh aur tisara apane sir par rakh le. tere pati ke dil men us lakadi ke gatthe ko dekhakar moh paida hoga. jab vah yahan ruk kar nashta pani karake ghar jayega, tab toon lakadiyan uthakar ghar jana aur chok ke bich men gatthar dalakar zor jor se tin avajen lagana, sasooji ! lakadiyon ka gattha lo, bhoose ki roti do aur nariyal ke khopade men pani do. aj mehaman kaun aya hai?” isane man ke charan chhooe aur usake kahe anusar sara kary kiya.

vah tisara gatthar lekar ghar gee aur chok men dalakar kahane lagi "sasooji! lakadiyon ka gatthar lo, bhoose ki roti do, nariyal ke khopade men pani do, aj mehaman kaun aya hai?" yah sunakar sas bahar akar kapat bhare vachanon se usake die hue kashton ko bhulane ke lie kahane lagi‘ beti! tera pati aya hai. a, mitha bhat aur bhojan kar aur gahane kapade pahan.’ apani man ke aise vachan sunakar usaka pati bahar aya aur apani patni ke hath men angoothi dekh kar vyakul ho utha. usane poochha ‘ yah kaun hai?’ man ne kaha yah teri bahoo hai aj barah baras ho ge, yah din bhar ghoomati phirati hai, kam – kaj karati nahin hai, tujhe dekhakar nakhare karati hai. vah bola thik hai. mainne tujhe aur ise dekh liya hai, ab mujhe dusare ghar ki chabi de do, main usame rahoonga.

man ne kaha thik hai, jaisi teri maraji. aur usane chabiyon ka guchchha patak diya. usane apana saman tisari mnzil ke oopar ke kamare men rakh diya. ek hi din men ve raja ke saman thath – bath vale ban gaye. itane men agala shukravar aya. bahoo ne apani pati se kaha – mujhe sntoshi mata ke vrat ka udyapan karana hai. vah bola bahut achchha khushi se kar le. jaldi hi udyapan ki taiyari karane lagi. usane jeth ke ladakon ko jimane ke lie kaha. unhonne man liya. pichhe se jithaniyon ne apane bachchon ko sikhadiya tum khataee mangana jisase usaka udyapan poora n ho. ladakon ne jim kar khataee mangi. bahoo kahane lagi ‘bhaee khataee kisi ko nahin di jayegi. yah to sntoshi mata ka prasad hai.’ ladake khade ho gaye aur bole paisa lao| vah bholi kuchh n samajh saki unaka kya bhed hai| usane paise de diye aur ve imali ki khataee mngakar khane lage. is par sntoshi mata ne us par rosh kiya. raja ke doot usake pati ko pakad kar le gaye. vah bechari badi dukhi huee aur roti huee mataji ke mndir men gee aur unake charanon men girakar kahane lagi‘ he! mata yah kya kiya? hnsakar ab toon mujhe kyon rulane lagi? mata boli putri mujhe duahkh hai ki tumane abhiman karake mera vrat toda hai aur itani jaldi sab baten bhula di. vah kahane lagi – mata ! mera koee aparadh nahin hai. mujhe to ladako ne bhool men dal diya. mainne bhool se hi unhen paise de diye. man mujhe kshama karo main dubara tumhara udyapan karungi.

mata bol: ja tera pati raste men ata hua hi milega. use raste men usaka pati mila.

usake poochhane par vah bola: raja ne mujhe bulaya tha main usase milane gaya tha. ve phir ghar chale gaye.

kuchh hi din bad phir shukravar aya. vah dubara pati ki agya se udyapan karane lagi. usane phir jeth ke ladako ko bulava diya. jethaniyon ne phir vahin bat sikha di. ladake bhojan ki bat par phir khataee mangane lage.

usane kaha: khataee kuchh bhi nahin milegi ana ho to ao. yah kahakar vah brahmanon ke ladako ko lakar bhojan karane lagi. yathashakti usane unhen dakshina di. sntoshi mata us par badi prasann huee, mata ki kripa se navamen mas men usake ek chndrama ke saman sundar putr hua. apane putr ko lekar vah rojana mndir jane lagi.

ek din sntoshi mata ne socha ki yah roz yahan ati hai. aj main isake ghar chaloon. isaka sasara dekhoon. yah sochakar usane ek bhayanak roop banaya. gud v chane se sana mukh, oopar ko soond ke saman hoth jin par makkhiyan bhinabhina rahi thi. isi soorat men vah usake ghar gee. dehali men panv rakhate hi usaki sas boli dekho koee dakin a rahi hai, ise bhagao nahin to kisi ko kha jayegi. ladake bhagakar khidaki band karane lage. satave ladake ki bahu khidaki se dekh rahi thi. vah vahi se chillane lagi 'aj meri mata mere hi ghar aee hai.' yah kahakar usane bachche ko doodh pine se hataya.

itane men sas boli: pagali kise dekh kar utavali huee hai, bachche ko patak diya hai.

itane men sntoshi mata ke pratap se vahan ladake hi ladake nazar ane lage.

bahoo boli: sasooji main jisaka vrat karati hoon, yah vo hi sntoshi mata hain. yah kah kar usane sari khidakiyan khol di. sabane sntoshi mata ke charan pakad lie aur vinati kar kahane lage – he mata ! ham moorkh hain, agyani hai, papini hai, tumhare vrat ki vidhi ham nahin janati, tumhara vrat bhng kar hamane bahut bada aparadh kiya hai. he jagat mata ! ap hamara aparadh kshama karo. is par mata un par prasann huee. bahoo ko jaisa phal diya vaisa mata sabako den.
