holi ke din ray sahab pandit ghasitelal ki barahadari men bhng chhan rahi thi ki sahasa maloom hua, jiladhish mistar bul a rahe hain. bul sahab bahut hi milanasar adami the aur abhi hal hi men vilayat se aye the. bharatiy riti-niti ke jigyasu the, bahudha mele-thelon men jate the. shayad is vishay par koee badi kitab likh rahe the. unaki khabar pate hi yahan badi khalabali mach gayi. sab-ke-sab nng-dhidng, moosarachand bane bhng chhan rahe the. kaun janata tha ki is vakt sahab aenge. phur-se bhage, koee oopar ja chhipa, koee ghar men bhaga, par bichare ray sahab jahan ke tahan nishchal baithe rah gaye. adha ghante men to ap kankhakar uthate the aur ghante bhar men ek qadam rakhate the, is bhagadad men kaise bhagate. jab dekha ki ab pran bachane ka koee upay nahin hai, to aisa munh bana liya mano vah jan boojhakar is svadeshi that se sahab ka svagat karane ko baithe hain. sahab ne baramade men ate hi kaha-halo ray sahab, aj to apaka holi hai?

ray sahab ne hath bandhakar kaha-han sarakar, holi hai.

bul-khoob lal rng khelata hai?

ray sahab-han sarakar, aj ke din ki yahi bahar hai.

sahab ne pichakari utha li. samane matakon men gulal rakha hua tha. bul ne pichakari bharakar panditaji ke munh par chhod di to panditaji nahin uthe. dhany bhag! kaise yah saubhagy prapt ho sakata hai. vah re hakim! ise prajavatsaly kahate hain. ah! is vakt seth jokhanaram hote to dikha deta ki yahan zila men aphasar itani kripa karate hain. bataen akar ki un par kisi gore ne bhi pichakari chhodi hai, jiladhish ka kahana hi kya. yah poorv-tapasya ka phal hai, aur kuchh nahin. koee pahale ek sahasr varsh tapasya kare, tab yah param pad pa sakata hai. hath jodaqar bole-dharmavatar, aj jivan saphal ho gaya. jab sarakar ne holi kheli hai to mujhe bhi hukm mile ki apane hriday ki abhilasha poori kar loon.

yah kahakar ray sahab ne gulal ka ek tika sahab ke mathe par laga diya.

bul-is bade baratan men kya rakha hai, ray sahab?

ray-sarakar, yah bhng hai. bahut vidhipoorvak banaee gayi hai huzoor!

bul-isake pine se kya hoga?

ray-huzoor ki ankhen khul jaengi. badi vilakshan vastu hai sarakar.

bul-ham bhi piega.

ray sahab ko jan pada mano svarg ke dvar khul gaye hain aur vah pushpak viman par baithe oopar ude chale ja rahe hain. glas to sahab ko dena uchit n tha, par kulhad men dete snkoch hota tha. akhir bahut oonch-nich sochakar glas men bhng undeli aur sahab ko di. sahab pi gaye. mare sugandh ke chitt prasann ho gaya.

doosare din ray sahab is mulakat ka javab dene chale. prat:kal jyotishi se muhoort poochha. pahar rat gaye sait banati thi, atev din-bhar khoob taiyariyan kin. thik samay par chale. sahab us samay bhojan kar rahe the. khabar pate hi salam diya. ray sahab andar gaye to sharab ki durgandh se nak phatane lagi. bechare angreji dava n pite the, apani umr men sharab kabhi n chhuee thi. ji men aya ki nak band kar len, magar dare ki sahab bura n man jaen. ji machala raha tha, par sans roke baithe hue the. sahab ne ek chuski li aur glas mej par rakhate hue bole-ray sahab ham kal ap ka bng pi gaya, aj apako hamara bng pina padega. apaka bng bahut achchha tha. ham bahut-sa khana kha gaya.

ray-huzoor, ham log madira hath se bhi nahin chhoote. hamare shastron men isako chhoona pap kaha gaya hai.

bul-(hnsakar) nahin, nahin, apako pina padega ray sahab! pap-pun kuchh nahin hai. yah hamara bng hai, vah apaka bng hai. koee pharak nahin hai. usase bhi nasha hota hai, isase bhi nasha hota hai, phir pharak kaisa?

ray-nahin, dharmavatar, madira ko hamare yahan varjit kiya gaya hai.

bul-aisa kabhi hone nahin sakata. shastr mana karega to isako bhi mana karega, usako bhi mana karega. aphim ko bhi mana karega. ap isako pien, daren nahin. bahut achchha hai.

yah kahate hue sahab ne ek glas men sharab undelakar ray sahab ke munh se laga hi to di. ray sahab ne munh pher liya aur ankhen band karake donon hathon se sahab ka hath hatane lage. sahab ki samajh men yah rahasy n ata tha. vah yahi samajh rahe the ki yah dar ke mare nahin pi rahe hain. apane mazaboot hathon se ray sahab ki garadan pakadi aur glas munh ki taraph badhaya. ray sahab ko ab krodh a gaya. sahab khatir se sab kuchh kar sakate the; par dharm nahin chhod sakate the. jara kathor svar men bole-huzoor, ham vaishnav hain. ham ise chhoona bhi pap samajhate hain.

ray sahab isake age aur kuchh n kah sake. mare avesh men kanthavarodh ho gaya. ek kshan bad jara svar ko snyat karake phir bole-huzoor, bhng pavitr vastu hai. rishi, muni, sadhu, mahatma, devi, devata sab isaka sevan karate hain. sarakar, hamare yahan isaki badi mahima likhi hai. kaun aisa pandit hai, jo booti n chhanata ho. lekin madira ka to sarakar, ham nam lena bhi pap samajhate hain.

bul ne glas hata liya aur kurasi par baithakar bola-tum pagal ka maphik bat karata hai. dharam ka kitab bng aur sharab donon ko bura kahata hai. tum usako thik nahin samajhata. nasha ko isalie sara duniya bura kahata hai ki isase adami ka akal khatm ho jata hai. to bng pine se pandit aur devata log ka akal kaise khapt nahin hoga, yah ham nahin samajh sakata. tumhara pandit log bng pikar rakshas kyon nahin hota! ham samajhata hai ki tumhara pandit log bng pikar khapt ho gaya hai, tabhi to vah kahata hai, yah achhoot hai, vah napak hai, roti nahin khaega, mithaee khaega. ham chhoo len to tum pani nahin piega. yah sab khapt logon ka bat. achchha salam!

ray sahab ki jan-men-jan ayi. girate-padate baramade men aye, gadi par baithe aur ghar ki rah li.
