jahnavi apane baloo ke kambal men thithurakar so rahi thi. shit kuhasa banakar pratyaksh ho raha tha. do-char lal dharayen prachi ke kshitij men bahana chahati thin. dharmik log snan karane ke lie ane lage the.

nirmal ki man snan kar rahi thi, aur vah pande ke pas baitha hua bade kutoohal se dharm-bhiru logon ki snan-kriya dekhakar muskara raha tha. usaki man snan karake oopar aee. apani chadar odhate hue sneh se usane nirmal se poochha-‘‘kya too snan n karega?’’

nirmal ne kaha-‘‘nahin man, main to dhoop nikalane par ghar par hi snan karoonga.’’

pandaji ne hnsate hue kaha-‘‘mata, abake ladake puny-dharm kya janen? yah sab to jab tak ap log hain, tabhi tak hai.’’

nirmal ka munh lal ho gaya. phir bhi vah chup raha. usaki man snkalp lekar kuchh dan karane lagi. sahasa jaise ujala ho gaya-ek dhaval danton ki shreni apana bholapan bikher gee- ‘‘kuchh hamako de do, rani man!’’

nirmal ne dekha, ek chaudah baras ki bhikharin bhikh mang rahi hai. pandaji jhallaye, bich hi men snkalp adhoora chhodakar bol uthe-‘‘chal hat!’’

nirmal ne kaha- ‘‘man! kuchh ise bhi de do.’’

mata ne udhar dekha bhi nahin, parantu nirmal ne us jirn malin vasan men ek daridr hriday ki hnsi ko rote hue dekha. us balika ki ankhon me ek adhoori kahani thi. rookhi laton men sadi ulajhan thi, aur barauniyon ke agrabhag men snkalp ke jalabindu latak rahe the, karuna ka dan jaise hone hi vala tha.

dharm-parayan nirmal ki man snan karake nirmal ke sath chali. bhikharin ko abhi asha thi, vah bhi un logon ke sath chali.

nirmal ek bhavuk yuvak tha. usane poochha-‘‘tum bhikh kyon mangati ho?’’

bhikharin ki potali ke chaval phate kapade ke chhidr se gir rahe the. unhen snbhalate hue usane kaha-‘‘babooji, pet ke lie.’’

nirmal ne kaha-‘‘naukari kyon nahin karatin? man, ise apane yahan rakh kyon nahin leti ho? dhaniya to pray: ati bhi nahin.’’

mata ne gambhirata se kaha-‘‘rakh lo! kaun jati hai, kaisi hai, jana n suna; bas rakh lo.’’

nirmal ne kaha-‘‘man, daridron ki to ek hi jati hoti hai.’’

man jhalla uthi, aur bhikharin laut chali. nirmal ne dekha, jaise umadi huee meghamala bina barase hue laut gee. usaka ji kachot utha. vivash tha, mata ke sath chala gaya.

‘‘sune ri nirdhan ke dhan ram! sune ri-’’

bhairavi ke svar pavan men andolan kar rahe the. dhoop gnga ke vaksh par ujali hokar nach rahi thi. bhikharin patthar ki sidhiy़on par soory ki or munh kiye gunaguna rahi thi. nirmal aj apani bhabhi, ke sng snan karane ke lie aya hai. god men apane char baras ke bhatije ko liye vah bhi sidhiy़on se utara. bhabhi ne poochha-‘‘nirmal! aj kya tum bhi puny-sanchay karoge?’’

‘‘kyon bhabhi! jab tum is chhote se bachche ko is saradi men nahala dena dharm samajhati ho, to mai hi kyon vanchit rah jaoon?’’

sahasa nirmal chaunk utha. usane dekha, bagal men vahi bhikharin baithi gunaguna rahi hai. nirmal ko dekhate hi usane kaha-babooji, tumhara bachcha phale-phoole, bahoo ka sohag bana rahe! aj to mujhe kuchh mile.’’

nirmal apratibh ho gaya. usaki bhabhi hnsati huee boli-‘‘dur pagali!’’

bhikharin saham gee. usake danto ka bholapan gambhirata ke parade men chhip gaya. vah chup ho gee.

nirmal ne snan kiya. sab oopar chalane ke lie prastut the. sahasa badal hat gaye, unhin amal-dhaval danto ki shreni ne phir yachana ki-‘‘babooji, kuchh milega?’’

‘‘are , abhi babooji ka byah nahin hua. jab hoga, tab tujhe nyota dekar bulavenge. tab tak santosh karake baithi rah.’’ bhabhi ne hnsakar kaha.

‘‘tum log badi nishthur ho, bhabhi! us din man se kaha ki ise naukar rakh lo, to vah isaki jati poochhane lagi; aur aj tum bhi hnsi hi kar rahi ho!’’

nirmal ki bat katate hue bhikharin ne kaha-‘‘bahooji, tumhen dekhakar main to yahi janati hoon ki byah ho gaya hai. mujhe kuchh n dene ke lie bahana kar rahi ho!’’

‘‘mar pagali! badi dhith hai!’’ bhabhi ne kaha.

‘‘bhabhi! us par krodh n karo. vah kya jane, usaki drishti men sab amir aur sukhi log vivahit hain. jane do, ghar chalen!’’

‘‘achchha chalo, aj man se kahakar ise tumhare lie tahalani rakhava doongi.’’-kahakar bhabhi hns padi.

yuvak hriday uttejit ho utha. bola-‘‘yah kya bhabhi! main to isase byah karane ke lie bhi prastut ho jaoonga! tum vyng kyon kar rahi ho?’’

bhabhi apratibh ho gee. parantu bhikharin apane svabhavik bholepan se boli-‘‘do din mangane par bhi tum logon se ek paisa to dete nahin bana, phir kyon gali dete ho, baboo? byah karake nibhana to badi door ki bat hai!’’-bhikharin bhari munh kiye laut chali.

balak ramoo apani chalaki men laga tha. man ki jeb se chhoti duanni apani chhoti ungaliyon se usane nikal li aur bhikharin ki or phenkakar bola-‘‘leti jao, o bhikharin!’’

nirmal aur bhabhi ko ramoo ki is daya par kuchh prasannata huee, par ve prakat n kar sake; kyonki bhikharin oopar ki sidhiy़on par chadhati huee gunagunati chali ja rahi thi-

‘‘sune ri nirdhan ke dhan ram!’’
