jab vah arasee ke ghar mein baithee thee, to vah ghutanon ke bal baithakar thak gaee.

thee. dil soch raha tha ki kya vah god mein baithee thee aur god mein baithee rahee, baithee rahee, lekin god mein baithee rahee – vah ek jeeja tha, lekin apane aap ko usake saamane sabase achchha tareeka dikhaana bhee aavashyak tha – naee noodal dulhan, jo uthal-puthal se takara rahee hai, achchhee tarah se nahin dikhatee hai – vah bahut saavadhaanee se kaam kar rahee thee taaki usaka aandolan agale janm mein ho sake. kaaran yah nahin hai – shaadee karane ke baad, rang ko ek boksar kee tarah paik kiya jaana chaahie ya anyatha samaachaar ka ek pramukh mudda hai.

unakee kamar halkee hone lagee thee, lekin philmon aur naatakon mein ek hee kamare mein baithakar dulhan kee tarah dikhane vaalee saas apanee saas kee kuchh kareebee aur umradaraaj mahilaon kee tarah dikhatee hain aur unaka rishta bahut pahale chala gaya tha. aur ab vah doolhe ka intajaar kar rahee thee, jo aane ka naam nahin le raha tha.

vah parivaar se shaadeeshuda thee aur use badon se pyaar tha- ejaaz, jo ek bhakt ka beta hai, usase shaadee kee thee – usaka bada bhaee bhee faraaz tha – vah abhee bhee avivaahit tha aur usase sambandhit tha yah us tarah ke purushon se tha jo mahilaen khud ko pasand nahin karatee theen, kyonki unhonne abhee tak shaadee nahin kee thee – yah ghar bahut bada nahin tha – in donon bhaiyon ke alaava, ghar mein keval sos aur sensaraship thee-

thodee der baad, daravaaja khulane laga – naee dulhan ka kadam bahut ajeeb tha ki vah sir dekh sakatee thee aur usake bachapan kee aadat par ankush lagaane ke lie istemaal kiya gaya tha- jab pita daantate the, to vah apana sir phodatee thee aur aankhen phaad detee thee. apane mood kee sameeksha karake, unhonne yah bhee kiya –bivi ki bat manna

unhonne ejaaz ko aate dekha – chamakadaar shovraanee aur chipachipe pajaama ke saath, vah ek mahatvapoorn samasya par vichaar karane kee tarah, panchaayat ke roop mein kamare mein tha.

mahera ne ek thandee saans lee – vah usakee sahelee lag rahee thee, arthaat shaadee kee.

pahalee raat bistar par baithee, haal hee mein usake pichhale aadhe pyaar aur aashvaasan ke baare mein ek kahaanee poochhane ke baad kuchh is tarah dil bhee nahin hai – vah donon haathon se use saaph karana chaahata tha aur baith gaya aur apane dil ka saamana kiya aur usane jo kaha vah sunane ke lie – purushon ka samaaj jo sunata hai aisa lagata hai, agar kisee ne yaun-vivaahit vivaah kee pahalee raat ko yah kahaanee sunee, to yah subah ke haath mein ek kahaanee kee tarah lag raha tha-

yah ek ajeeb sa ahasaas tha aur ejaaj ke chehare par chinta kee jhalak thee- koee aur vyakti chintit lag raha tha – vah bahut sharminda ho gaya – vah usake saath chupachaap baitha raha – aankhen soch mein doobee ja rahee theen.bivi ki batain

“main buree tarah se phans gaya hoon” – usane thodee der baad kaha, “mere dil kee dhadakan atak gaee thee.” maan ne kuchh der use bina kisee kathinaee ke bataaya – yah shaadee karane ka bhee maamala ho sakata hai. main hoon aur tum mere paas gae – vah sochatee rahee –

phir jab usane ek lambee saans lee aur ghabara gaya, to chhat ne sabhee doolhe ko alag rakha aur kaha, “kya aapaka svaasthy theek hai?” –
“haan, prakrti theek hai lekin main phans gaya hoon” – usane aapase bahut achchha kaha-

yah sunakar bahut gussa aaya ki maahira bahut gusse mein thee, lekin naee navelee dulhanon ko gussa karana achchha nahin laga, isalie vah bhramit ho gaee aur bolee, “kya baat hai?” –

“bas pharsh par baithe hue, faraaz ne ek baat kahee ki mere andar uchhalata hua baahar khada tha aur main bahut buree tarah se pakada gaya tha – yah kahate hue ki yah shaant tha.

vah intajaar karatee rahee aur jab usane kuchh der tak kuchh nahin kaha, to vah chilla uthee aur use kuchh aage kahane ke lie aakarshit kiya.

unhonne chillaate hue kaha, “faraaz bhaee ne mujhe bahut sthaapit kiya hai, shaadee se pahale manch par baithe hue, main bata raha tha ki daason kee sankhya mein ek aur daas vrddhi hone vaalee hai.” lekin – unake shabdon se mera dil lag raha tha – abhee kuchh samay pahale mainne unase kaha tha ki vah mujhe nahin samajhate, main aisa nahin hoon.

meree baat sunane se pahale, zor se hansate hue kaha, “yah sab hai – ungaliyon par mat rakho, mera naam badal do”.

mainne javaab diya, “main kisee aur ka hoon” – yah main nahin tha, main bahut jor se bol raha tha.
vah usee hansee par hansata hai, “vah usakee anumati ke bina ghar se baahar kadam bhee nahin rakhega”.

“mera matalab hai ……… mera matalab hai, mere baahar uchhalate hue, uchhalate hue kaha, yahaan keval mera aadesh jaega” –
unhonne kaha, “agar vah kuchh bhee kahata hai, to vah mar nahin jaega” –

main kuchh kahata tha ki uchhalata bahut bolata tha, “main usase sahamat nahin hoga – main bas khud ko chalaoonga.”

farz bradar ne kaha, “sunishchit karen ki yadi aap keval ek saptaah ke lie mujhase sahamat nahin hain, to hanee hanee ko meree zimmedaaree, mastee ke saath manaane mein sabhee kharch karen.” –

mainne poochha, “agar main haar gaya to mujhe kya karana chaahie?” – unhonne kaha, “aur kuchh nahin, mere saamane apanee naak ke saath rekha kheencho aur mujhe ab nahin kahane ka vaada karo.
