‘purushon aur striyon men bada antar hai, tum logon ka hriday shishe ki tarah kathor hota hai aur hamara hriday naram, vah virah ki anch nahin sah sakata.’

‘shisha thes lagate hi toot jata hai. naram vastuon men lachak hoti hai.’

‘chalo, baten n banao. din-bhar tumhari rah dekhoon, rat-bhar ghadi ki suiyan, tab kahin apake darshan hote hain.’

‘main to sadaiv tumhen apane hriday-mndir men chhipae rakhata hoon.’

‘thik batalao, kab aoge ?’

‘gyarah baje, parntu pichhala daravaza khula rakhana.’

‘use mere nayan samajho.’

‘achchha, to ab vida.’

pndit kailashanath lakhanoo ke pratishthit bairistaron men se the kee sabhaon ke mntri, kee samitiyon ke sabhapati, patron men achchhe-achchhe lekh likhate, pletapharm par saragarbhit vyakhyan dete. pahale-pahale jab vah yoorop se laute the, to yah utsah apani poori umng par tha; parntu jyon-jyon bairistari chamakane lagi, is utsah men kami ane lagi aur yah thik bhi tha, kyonki ab bekar n the jo begar karate. han, kriket ka shauq ab jyon ka tyon bana tha. vah kaisar klab ke snsthapak aur kriket ke prasiddh khiladi the.

yadi mi. kailash ko kriket ki dhun thi, to unaki bahin kamini ko tenis ka shauq tha. inhen nit navin amod-pramod ki chah rahati thi. shahar men kahin natak ho, koee thiyetar aye, koee sarakas, koee bayasakop ho, kamini unamen n sammilit ho, yah asambh bat thi. manovinod ki koee samagri usake lie utani hi avashyak thi, jitana vayu aur prakash.

mi. kailash pashchimi sabhyata ke pravah men bahane vale apane any sahayogiyon ki bhanti hindoo jati, hindoo sabhyata, hindi bhasha aur hindustan ke kattar virodhi the. hindoo sabhyata unhen doshapoorn dikhaee deti thi ! apane in vicharon ko ve apane hi tak parimit n rakhate the, balki badi hi ojasvini bhasha men in vishayon par likhate aur bolate the. hindoo sabhyata ke viveki bhakt unake in vivekashoony vicharon par hnsate the; parantu upahas aur virodh to sudharak ke puraskar hain. mi. kailash unaki kuchh paravah n karate the. ve kore vaky-vir hi n the, karmavir bhi poore the. kamini ki svatntrata unake vicharon ka pratyaksh svaroop thi. saubhagyavash kamini ke pati gopalanarayan bhi inhin vicharon men rnge hue the. ve sal bhar se amerika men vidyadhyayan karate the. kamini bhaee aur pati ke upadeshon se poora-poora labh uthane men kami n karati thi.

lakhanoo men alphred thietar kampani ayi huee thi. shahar men jahan dekhie, usi tamashe ki charcha thi. kamani ki raten bade annd se katati thin rat bhar thiyetar dekhati, din ko kuchh soti aur kuchh der vahi thiyetar ke git alapati saundary aur priti ke nav ramaniy snsar men raman karati thi, jahan ka duahkh aur klesh bhi is snsar ke sukh aur annd se badhakar modadayi hai. yahan tak ki tin mahine bit ge, pranay ki nity nee manohar shiksha aur prem ke anndamay alap-vilap ka hriday par kuchh-n-kuchh asar hona chahie tha, so bhi is chadhati javani men. vah asar hua. isaka shriganesh usi tarah hua, jaisa ki bahudha hua karata hai.

thiyetar hal men ek sudhare sajile yuvak ki ankhen kamini ki or uthane lagin. vah roopavati aur chnchala thi, atev pahale use chitavan men kisi rahasy ka gyan n hua netron ka sundarata se bada ghana sambandh hai. ghoorana purush ka aur lajana stri ka svabhav hai. kuchh dinon ke bad kamini ko is chitavan men kuchh gupt bhav jhalakane lage. mntr apana kam karane laga. phir nayanon men paraspar baten hone lagin. nayan mil ge. priti gadhi ho gee. kamini ek din ke lie bhi yadi kisi doosare utsav men chali jati, to vahan usaka man n lagata. ji uchatane lagata. ankhen kisi ko dhoondha karatin.

ant men lajja ka bandh toot gaya. hriday ke vichar svaroopavan hue maun ka tala toota. premalap hone laga ! pady ke bad gady ki bari ayi aur phir donon milan-mndir ke dvar par a pahunche. isake pashchath jo kuchh hua, usaki jhalak ham pahale hi dekh chuke hain.

is nav yuvak ka nam roopachand tha. pnjab ka rahane vala, snskrit ka shastri, hindi sahity ka poorn pandit, angareji ka em.e., lakhanoo ki ek badi lohe ke karakhane ka mainejar tha ghar men roopavati stri, do pyare bachche the. apane sathiyon men sadacharan ke lie prasiddh tha. n javani ki umng n svabhav ka chhichhorapan. ghar-grihasthi men jakada hua tha maloom nahin, vah kaun-sa akarshan tha, jisane use is tilasm men phnsa liya, jahan ki bhoomi agni aur akash jvala hai, jahan ghrina aur pap hai. aur abhagi kamini ko kya kaha jay, jisaki priti ki badh ne dhirata aur vivek ka bandh todakar apani taral-tarng men niti aur maryada ki tooti-phooti jhopadi ko duba diya. yah poorvajanm ke snskar the :

rat ke das baj ge the. kamini laimp ke samane baithi huee chitthiyan likh rahi thi. pahala patr roopachand ke nam tha :

kailash bhavan, lakhanoo

pranadhar !

tumhare patr ko padhakar pran nikal gaye. uph ! abhi ek mahina lagega. itane dinon men kadachit tumhen yahan meri rakh bhi n milegi. tumase apane duahkh kya rooon ! banavat ke dosharopan se darati hoon. jo kuchh bit rahi hai, vah main hi janati hoon lekin bina virah-katha sunae dil ki jalan kaise jaegi ? yah ag kaise thndi hogi ? ab mujhe maloom hua ki yadi prem men dahakati huee ag hai, to viyog usake lie ghrit hai. thietar ab bhi jati hoon, par vinod ke lie nahin, rone aur bisoorane ke lie. rone men hi chitt ko kuchh shanti milati hai, ansoo umade chale ate hain. mera jivan shushk aur niras ho gaya hai. n kisi se milane ko ji chahata hai, n amod-pramod men man lagata hai. parason daktar kelakar ka vyakhyan tha, bhaee sahab ne bahut agrah kiya, par main n ja saki. pyare! maut se pahale mat maro. anand ke gine-ginae kshanon men viyog ka duahkh mat do. ao, yathasadhy shighr ao, aur gale lagakar mere hriday ka tap bujhao, anyatha ashchary nahin ki virah ka yah athah sagar mujhe nigal jay.

tumhari kamini

isake bad kamini ne doosara patr pati ko likha :

maee diyar gopal !

ab tak tumhare do patr aye. parantu khed, main unaka uttar n de saki. do saptah se sir men pida se asahy vedana sah rahi hoon kisi bhanti chitt ko shanti nahin milati hai. par ab kuchh svasth hoon. kuchh chinta mat karana. tumane jo natak bheje, unake lie hardik dhanyavad deti hoon. svasth ho jane par padhana arnbh karoongi. tum vahan ke manohar drishyon ka varnan mat kiya karo. mujhe tum par eershya hoti hai. yadi main agrah karoon to bhaee sahab vahan tak pahuncha to denge, parantu inake kharch itane adhik hain ki inase niyamit roop se sahayy milana kathin hai aur is samay tum par bhar dena bhi kathin hai. eeshvar chahega to vah din shighr dekhane men aega, jab main tumhare sath anand poorvak vahan ki sair karoongi. main is samay tumhen koee kasht dena nahin chahati. asha hai, tum sakushal hoge.

tumhari kamini

lakhanoo ke seshan jaj ke ilajas men badi bhid thi. adalat ke kamare thasathas bhar ge the. til rakhane ki jagah n thi. sabaki drishti badi utsukta ke sath jaj ke sammukh khadi ek sundar lavanyamayi moorti par lagi huee thi. yah kamini thi. usaka munh dhoomil ho raha tha. lalat par sved-vindu jhalak rahe the. kamare men ghor nistabdhata thi. keval vakilon ki kanaphoosi aur sain kabhi-kabhi is nistabdhata ko bhng kar deti thi. adalat ka hata adamiyon se is tarah bhar gaya tha ki jan padata tha, mano sara shahar simitakar yahin a gaya hai. tha bhi aisa hi. shahar ki prayah dookanen bnd thin aur jo ek adh khuli bhi thin, un par ladake baithe tash khel rahe the, kyonki koee grahak n tha. shahar se kachahari tak adamiyon ka tanta laga hua tha. kamini ko nimish-matr dekhane ke lie, usake munh se ek bat sunane ke lie, is samay pratyek adami apana sarvasv nichhavar karane par taiyar tha. ve log jo kabhi pndit datadayal sharma jaisa prabhavashali vakta ki vaktrita sunane ke lie ghar se bahar nahin nikale, ve jinhonne navajavan manachale beton ko alaphred thiyetar men jane ki agya nahin di, ve ekantapriy jinhen vayasaray ke shubhagaman tak ki khabar n huee thi, ve shanti ke upasak, jo muharram ki chahal-pahal dekhane ko apani kutiya se bahar n nikalate the ve sabhi aj girate-padate, uthate-baithate, kachahari ki or daude ja rahe the. bechari striyan apane bhagy ko kosati huee apani-apani atariyon par chadhakar vivashatapoorn utsuk drishti se us taraph tak rahi thin, jidhar unake vichar se kachahari thi. par unaki garib ankhen nirday attalikaon ki divar se takara kar laut ati thin.

yah sab kuchh isalie ho raha tha ki aj adalat men ek bada manohar adbhut abhinay hone vala tha, jis par alaphred thiyetar ke hajaron abhinay balidan the. aj ek gupt rahasy khulane vala tha, jo andhere men raee hai, par prakash men parvatakar ho jata hai. is ghatana ke sambandh men log tika-tippani kar rahe the. koee kahata tha, yah asnbhav hai ki roopachnd-jaisai shikshit vyakti aisa dooshit karm kare. pulis ka yah bayan hai, to hua kare. gavah pulis ke bayan ka samarthan karate hain, to kiya karen. yah pulis ka atyachar hai, anyay hai. koee kahata tha, bhaee saty to yah hai ki yah roop-lavany, yah ‘khnjan-gnjan-nayan’aur yah hridayaharini sundar saloni chhavi jo kuchh n kare, vah thoda hai. shrota in baton ko bade chav se is tarah ashcharyanvit ho munh banakar sunate the, mano devavani ho rahi hai. sabaki jibh par yahi charcha thi. khoob namak-mirch lapeta jata tha. parntu isamen sahanubhooti ya samvedana ke lie jara bhi sthan n tha.

pndit kailashanath ka bayan khatm ho gaya aur kamini ijalas par padhari. isaka bayan bahut snkshipt tha—main apane kamare men rat ko so rahi thi. koee ek baje ke qarib chor-chor ka halla sunakar main chaunk padi aur apani charapaee ke pas char adamiyon ko hathapaee karate dekha. mere bhaee sahab apane do chaukidaron ke sath abhiyukt ko pakadate the aur vah jan chhudakar bhagana chahata tha. main shighrata se uthakar baramade men nikal ayi. isake bad mainne chaukidaron ko aparadhi ke sath pulis steshan ki or ate dekha.

roopachnd ne kamini ka bayan aur ek thndi sans li. netron ke age se parada hat gaya. kamini, too aisi kritaghn, aisi anyayi, aisi pishachini, aisi duratma hai ! kya teri vah priti, vah virah-vedana, vah premodgar, sab dhokhe ki tatti thi! toone kitani bar kaha hai ki dridhata prem-mndir ki pahali sidhi hai. toone kitani bar nayanon men ansoo bharakar isi god men munh chhipakar mujhase kaha hai ki main tumhari ho gee, meri laj ab tumhare hath men hai. parntu hay ! aj prem-pariksha ke samay teri vah sab baten khoti utarin. ah ! toone daga diya aur mera jivan mitti men mila diya

roopachnd to vichar-tarngon men nimagn tha. usake vakil ne kamini se jirah karani prarambh ki.

vakil-kya tum satyanishtha ke sath kah sakati ho ki roopachnd tumhare makan par aksar nahin jaya karata tha ?

kamini— mainne kabhi use apane ghar par nahin dekha.

vakil— kya tum shapathapoorvak kah sakati ho ki tum usake sath kabhi thiyetar dekhane nahin gayin ?

kamini— mainne use kabhi nahin dekha.

vakil— kya tum shapath lekar kah sakati ho ki tumane use prem-patr nahin likhe?

shikar ke chngul men phnse hue pakshi ki tarah patr ka nam sunate hi kamini ke hosh-havash ud ge, hath-pair phool ge. munh n khul saka. jaj ne, vakil ne aur do sahasr ankhon ne usaki taraph utsukta se dekha.

roopachnd ka munh khil gaya. usake hriday men asha ka uday hua. jahan phool tha, vahan kanta paida hua. man men kahane laga— kulata kamini ! apane sukh aur apane kapat, man-pratishtha par mere parivar ki hatya karane vali kamini ! too ab bhi mere hath men hai. main ab bhi tujhe is kritaghnata aur kapat ka dnd de sakata hoon. tere patr, jinhen toone saty hriday se likha ya nahin, maloom nahin, parntu jo mere hriday ke tap ko shital karane ke lie mohini mntr the, vah sab mere pas hain aur vah isi samay tera sab bhed khol denge. is krodh se unmatt hokar roopachnd ne apane kot ke paket men hath dala. jaj ne, vakilon ne aur do sahasr netron ne usaki taraph chatak ki bhanti dekha.

tab kamini ki vikal ankhen charon se hatash hokar roopachnd ki or pahunchin. unamen is samay lajja thi, daya-bhiksha ki prarthana thi aur vyakulata thi, man-hi-man kahati thi—main stri hoon, abala hoon, ochhi hoon, tum purush ho, balavan ho, sahasi ho, yah tumhare svabhav ke viparit hai. main kabhi tumhari thi aur yadyapi samay mujhe tumase alag kie deta hai, kintu meri laj tumhare hath men hai, tum meri raksha karo. ankhen milate hi roopachnd usake man ki bat tad ge. unake netron ne uttar diya—yadi tumhari laj mere hathon men hai, to us par koee anch nahin ane paegi. tumhari laj par mera sarvasv nichhavar hai.

abhiyukt ke vakil ne kamini se punah vahi prashn kiya—kya tum shapath-poorvak kah sakati ho ki tumane roopachnd ko premapatr nahin likhe ?

kamini ne katar svar men uttar diya— main shapathapoorvak kahati hoon ki mainne use kabhi koee patr nahin likha aur adalat se apil karati hoon ki vah mujhe in ghrinaspad ashlil akramanon se bachae.

abhiyog ki karyavaee samapt ho gee. ab aparadhi ke lie bayan ki bari ayi. usaki saphaee ke koee gavah n the. parantu vakilon ko, jaj ko aur adhir janata ko poora-poora vishvas ki abhiyukt ka bayan pulis ke mayavi mahal ko kshan-matr men chhinn-bhinn kar dega. roopachnd ijalas ke sammukh aya. usake mukharavind par atmabal ka tej jhalak raha tha aur netron se sahas aur shanti. darshak-mndali utalavali hokar adalat ke kamare men ghus padi. roopachnd is samay ka chand tha ya devalok ka doot. sahasron netr usaki or lage the. kintu hriday ko kitana kautoohal hua, jab roopachnd ne atynt shant chitt se apana aparadh svikar kar liya. log ek doosare ka munh takane lage.

abhiyukt ka bayan samapt hote hi kolahal mach gaya. sabhi isaki alona-pratyalochana karane lage. sabake munh par ashchary tha, sndeh tha aur nirasha thi. kamini ki kritaghnata aur nishthurata par dhikkar ho rahi thi. pratyek manushy shapath khane par taiyar tha ki roopachnd nirdosh hai. prem ne usake munh par tala laga diya hai. par kuchh aise bhi doosare ke duahkh men prasann hone vale svabhav ke log the, jo usake is sahas par hnsate aur majak udate the.

do ghnte bit ge. adalat men punah ek bar shanti ka rajy hua. jaj sahab phaisala sunane ke lie khade hue. phaisala bahut snkshipt tha. abhiyukt javan hai, shikshit hai aur sabhy hai, atev ankhon ka andha. ise shikshaprad dnd dena avashyak hai. aparadh svikar karane se usaka dnd kam nahin hota. atah main use panch varsh ke saparishram karavas ki saza deta hoon.

do hazar manushyon ne hriday thamakar phaisala suna. maloom hota tha ki kaleje men bhale chubh ge hain. sabhi ka munh nirashajanak krodh se raktavarn ho raha tha. yah anyay hai, kathorata hai aur berahami hai. parntu roopachnd ke munh par shanti viraj rahi thi.
