Badshah ke teen sawaal

Many years ago, I read this short story by a famous writer/Bahut saal pehle maine padha tha yeh afsana, jo ek mashoor shaksiyat ne likha hain. It is over a century old, but its message has still a lot of relevance – specially in this time and age if one recognises – and more than that, strives to implement it/Haala ki yeh ek sau saal se bhi pehle likha gaya hai, lekin iski nasihat abhi bhi – is jadeed aur mabaad jadeed daur mein bhi   – ahmiyat rakhti hai gar koi ise pehchane aur use bhi zaroori, amal karne ki soche.

It suddenly came into my mind and I concluded that I have been acting in consonance with it…I think/Yeh achanak mere zehn mein aaya aur main is natije par pahuncha ke main iske hidayat ke hisaab se apni zindagi basar kar raha hoon…aise mera khayaal hain. 

It was in English but I translated it into Urdu/Yeh angrezi mein tha lekin iska tarjuma maine Urdu mein kar diya tha. You can get it freely in English…. I guess most will not head for a library or a bookstore but you can find it easily enough on the ‘net/Yaqeenan, aap mein se bahut kisi qutubkhaane ya kitab-farosh ke taraf nahi jayenge lekin aap is afsaane ko asaani ke saath “internet” par se paa sakte hain…..

However, I guess that is enough introduction and I must begin the story/Mera khayaal hain ke maine bahut muqadamma pesh kar diya hain aur ab bina aur der kare afsana shuru kar dena chahiye…

Read on!/Parhen!

Ek baar ek Badshah he zehn mein aaya ke use agar har cheez ke aaghaz karna ka sahi waqt pata ho; yeh ilm ho ke kaun log hain jinki baat sunni chahiye, aur kin sab ki nahi; aur sabse zaroori kaam kya hai, agar yeh baat ka ilm ho ke sab se zaroori kam kya ho, to woh hargiz kisi bhi muhim mein naakaam nahi hoga.

Aur yeh baat jab uski zehn mein aayi, to unhone pure mulk mein ailaan karwaye ke ek bada inaam us shakhs ki taraf aayega jis ne bhi use yeh sikhaya ke har kam ka sahi waqt kya hai, ke sab se zaroori log kaun hai, aur woh kaise jaane ke sabse zaroori kya kaam hai.

Aur kafi daanishwar Badshah ke paas aaye, lekin sab ke jawaab alag alag the.

Pehle sawaal ke jawwab mein, kuch ne kaha ke koi cheez anjaam karne ka sahi waqt jaan lene ke liye, pehle se hi ek dinon, mahinon aur saalon ka ek naqsha taiyyar karna chahiye aur us ke hisaab se zindagi bitani chahiye. Tabi, un sab ne kaha, har cheez apne sahi waqt par ki ja sakti hai.

Auron ne farmaya yeh pehle se tai karna ke koi cheez ka sahi waqt kya hai namumkin tha, lekin fuzool harkaton se parhez kar ke, aadmi ko jo chal raha hain mein puri tawajju deni chahiye, aur jo zaroori hai, koh karna chahiye. Kuch aur ka yeh maanna tha ke bhale Badshah apni pauri tawajju de, yeh ik aadmi ke liye namumkin tha ke tae kare ke har cheez ka sahi waqt kya hai, aur ek daanishwaron ka shura hona chahiye jo use salaah de ke har cheez ka sahi waqt kya hai.

Lekin phir kuch auron ki yeh raye thi kuch aisi cheezein hai jinhe aisi shura ke saamne laane ka waqt nahi hai, aur ek dam tae karna padhega ke karna hai ke nahi. Lekin yeh jaane ne ke liye, pehle se pata hona chahiye ke aage kya hone waala hai. Aur iska ilm sirf jadugaron ko hi pata hai, aur lihaza, koi cheez karne ka sahi waqt jaanne ke liye, unse mashvara karna lazmi hai.
Aise hi doosre sawaal ke jawaab vaghairah mile. Kuch ne kaha ke Badshah ko sab se zyada zaroorat apne salaahkaroon ki thi, kisi ne imaamon ka naam liya, kisi ne tabeebon ka, aur kuch ne kaha ke sipahi sab se zaroori the.

Teesre sawaal – ke sab se ahm kaam kya hai, kuch ne kaha ke jahaan mein sab se zaroori “science” hai. Auron ne kaha ke yeh jang mein qabiliyat hai, aur baqin ne farmaya ke deen hai.

Saare jawaab alag-alage the aur Badshah ne kisi se ittefaq na rakha aur kisi ko inaam se na nawaaza. Lekin apne sawaalon ka sahi jawaab jaane ki khwaish mein usne yeh faisla kiya ke woh ek dervish, jo aapni khiraad ke liye jaana jaata tha, se mashvara karega.

To be continued/Jaari rahega…..
