Fasana-e-Ajaib: Qist#28: Wazirzaade ki namak-haraami

Aur hamne dekha pichle mein ke kaise wazirzaada apni saazish ko kamyaab karne ke liye kya mansube karta hai aur un se kya hota hai. Aage kya hota hai, jaane ke liye padhte rahe….

~~~~ Us ne (chidhimar ki biwi) maang-taang ke samaan jamaa kar diya. Do ghadi raat rahe chidhimaar uth khada huya. Aur din ki na jal liya na phatki. Lasa aur kampa bhi ghar hi mein chodha. Bas roti, chane aur rassi le ke chal nikla. Shahr ke aas paas to bandar rahe na the. Chhe saath kos nikal ke bandar dhoondhne laga.

Ab idhar ka haal suno. Shahzaada to bandar ban hi chuka tha. Us ne jab se yeh suna tha ke bandar pakde jaate hai aur us ka farebi yaar unke sar tudhvata hai, isi din se chipta phirta tha ke kahin aesa na ho ke pakda jaaon aur jaan se haath dhouon. Is roz ko kaayi din ka bhooka pyaasa tha. Kamzori se na chala jaata tha. Ek darakht ki kol mein gash hokar padha tha. Chidhimaar ne dekha. Dabe paaon aake gardan pakad li. Is ne aankh kholi ke gardan maut ke panje mein phansi hai. Yaqeen ho gaya ke ab umr ke din poore ho gaye. Chidhimaar ne kamar se rassi khol ke bandar ko kas ke baandh liya aur shahr ka raasta liya.

Thodi door tak to bandar chup raha phir chidhimaar se bola “Ae bhai, tu kyon mujh museebat ke maare ko saatata hai. Khvamkhah mujh begunah ka khoon apni gardan par leta hai.”

Voh bola “Achchi kahi. Tu insaanon ki tarah bol ke mujhe darata hai. Agar tu jinn, bhoot, dev, balaa hain to bhi main tujhe chorh nahi sakta. Aaj din phire hai. Tujhe le ja ke badshah ko doonga, sau rupaye loonga aur chain karoonga.”

Voh yeh sun kar sun hi to ho gaya. Rahi sahi jaan bhi nikal gaayi. Chidhimaar ko bahut samjhaya ke lalach buri balaa hai magar us ne ek na suni aur tez tez qadam badhata raha. Sham ke qareeb ghar pahuncha. Biwi ko khush-khabri sunayi ke mehnat ke baghair yeh daulat haath aayi.

Jis din shahzaada chidhimaar ke haath laga us din malika ka dil bahut ghabraya. Kisi tarah chain na aaya. Isi din Anjuman Ara us se kehne lagi “Tum ne suna. Kambakht bandar pakadva ke unke sar kuchlata hai. Mera dil kehta hai ho na ho Jaan-e-Alam in dinon bandar hi ke roop mein hai. Aur aaj to Khuda khair kare. Subah se mera dil buri tarah ghabra raha hai. Khuda na khvasta shahzaada pakda na gaya ho.”

Idhar yeh baaten ho rahi thi udhar chidhimaar ki biwi chiraagh le ke bandar ko dekh rahi thi. Bandar ne socha voh to mard tha na paseeja. Yeh aurat hai. Kehte hai aurat ka dil naram hota hai uski khushamad kar ke dekho. Yeh soch ke salaam kiya. Voh bandar ko aadmiyon ki tarah bolte dekh ke darr gayi. Ab isne baat shuru ki.

“Ae nek bakht! Khauf na kar. Meri do baaten dhyan se sun le.” Ganvariyan ji ki kadhi bhi hoti hai. Bandar ka bolna achanjha samajh ke kaha “Kahe”.

Voh bola “Ham gareeb alvatan, museebaton mein giraftar, ghar se door aur qaid mein majboor hai. Maa-baap ne badi naazon se paala magar qismat ke aage kiski chalti hai. Ham dar dar ki thokren khaane aur is haal ko pahunchne ke liye ghar se nikle. Yahan tak ke ab is shakal mein giraftar hoke tere saamne aaye, subha ko ham gardan maare jaayenge. Tab sau rapaye tumhare haath aayenge. Qayamat ke din tum begunah ki jaan lene ki sazaa paaogi aur dozakh mein jalogi. Sau rupaye kya cheez hai. Kitne din khaaogi. Hamaare hal pe raham karo. Khuda koi aur surat karega. Sau rupaye ke badle tumhara ghar ashrafiyon se bharega. Tune Yaman ke badshah ka qissa nahi suna? Isne ek saltanat di, badle mein do paayi. Laalchi ki qaza aayi.”

Aurat ka dil paseeja. Bandar ki baaton par kuch ta’ajub, kuch afsos kar ke kehne lagi “Hanuman ji! Voh kahani kaisi hai? Sunayo, Maharaj!”

Aur yeh qist yahan mukammal huya. Qissa jald jaari rahega……
