Fasana-e-Ajaib: Qist#39: Judva bhaiyyon ki kahani

Aur dastaan ke andar kahani ko aage badhya jaaye, taake main aapko vapas asli kahani mein phir le chalun aur aapko pataa chale ke baaqi kirdaron pe, is museebat ke baad, kya guzri….

~~~~ Idhar yeh qafilaa manzil par pahuncha aur udhar mahina pura huya. Usne doosra laal ugla. Saudagar ne socha aisi qimti cheez chup-chaap na rakho. Pata nahi kal kya ho. Us ki sahrat ho jaaye. Saudagar ladke ko kotwal ke paas le gaya ke is ne mera laal churaya hai, ise band kar do. Kotwal ne use raat bhar hawalat mein rakha. Subah badshah ke saamne pesh kiya. Us ki ek akalvati thi jis ki hoshiyar aur liyaqat ka door door charcha tha. Sare muqaddamon mein faisla vahi karti thi.

Shahzaadi ne ladke se poocha “Toone laal churaya hai.” Yeh jaan se ajiz tha, bola “Haan churaya hai.” Shahzaadi ne is vaqt kuch nahi kaha. Apni dyodhi mein qaid kar diya. Phir akele mein bula ke poocha. Ladke ne saara qissa sunaya. Shahzaadi sun ke khush huyi ke us ka khayal theek tha. Yeh ladka chor nahi ho sakta. Agle din darbar mein badshah ko shahzadi ne sara majra sunaya. Use yaqeen nahi aaya. Shahzaadi ne kaha “Azmaana kya mushkil hai. Kuch din ise apne paas rakho. Laal ugle ga to sachcha varna jhootha.” Yeh baat sab ko pasand aayi.

Muddat poori huyi to ladke ne laal ugla. Har ek par is ka sachcha hona saabit ho gaya. Shahzaadi pehle his se pasand karne lagi thi. Ab saare darbariyon ne kaha ke aesa achcha ladka hai ke damaadi mein liye jaane ke laiq hai. Aakhir donon ki shaadi ho gayi.

Koi saal bhar guzra hoga ke bade bhai ka ailechi is badshah ke darbar mein aaya. Laal-o-jauharat ki baat nikli to us ne kaha “Hamare badshah ke paas aesa laal hai ke kahi dekha na suna. Badshah roz use dekhta hai.” Is badshah ne yeh suna to das-baraah laal jo is arse mein us ke damaad ne ugle the saamne rakhva diye. Voh dekh ke hairan huya. Badshah ne apne damaad ki taraf ishaarah kar ke kaha ke “Yeh har mahine ek laal ugalta hai.” Yeh baat sun ke ailechi aur bhi hairan huya. Ladke ko dekha to apne badshah ka hamshakal paaya.

Ailechi ne vapaas aa kar yeh saara qissa apne badshah ko sunaya ke huzoor ki shakal ka ek ladka hai jo har mahine aesa laal ugalta hai jaise aap ke paas hai. Voh sun ke samajh gaya ke ke yeh ho na ho mera bhai hai. Use mohabbat se bhara ek khat lika ke jald mujh se aa milo.

Us ne khat paaya to bahi ki mohabbat ne khush maara. Shahzaadi ko saath jahaz mein baithaya aur chal niklaa. Qismat dekho raste mein yeh jahaaz tabah ho gaya. Shahzadi kisi tarah se bade bhai tak pahunchi aur jahaaz doobne ka qissa sunaya. Use bada malaal huya. Chote bhai pe yeh guzri ke doobta uchalta ek takhte ke sahaare kinaare pahuncha. Phir pataa poochte poochte bade bhai ke darbaar tak pahuncha. Us ki halat itni kharaab ho gayi thi ke koi pehchaan na saka. Us ne kaha “Zara der baad main ugloonga tab tum sab ko yaqeen hoga.”

Shahzaadi ne kaha “Mera shauhar bada zehn, bada aql-mand tha. Ek muamma poochti hoon, toone sahi jawaab diya to tu vahi hai. Bata voh kya cheez hai jise Hindu, Mussalmaan, Yahudi, Isai sab khale bandon khaate hai magar iska sar kaat lo to zahar ho jaaye jo khaaye mar jaaye.”

Jawaan ne haans ke kaha “Shahzaadi, voh cheez qasam hai.” Yeh sunte shahzaadi chilman utha ke daudhi aur uske qadmon par gir padhi. Kaha “Beshak tu vahi hai. Maine tujhe pehchana.”

Badshah ne hairat se kaha ke “Ham to kuch na samjhe.”

Jawaan ne arz kiya “Qibla! Voh cheez hai qasam hai jise tamaam aalam khaata hai us ka sar ‘qaaf’ hai. Is ka sar kat lo sirf ‘sam’ rah jaata hai. Sam zahr ko kehte hai. Ise khaane waale mar jaata hai.”

Badshah ne uth ke use gale se lagaya. Zara der mein us ne laal ugla. Har taraf khushi ke shadyane bajne lage.

Yeh qissa suna ke jogi ne kaha “Dekha toone, Khuda chaahe to bichde is tarah milte hai.”

Aur yeh qist yahan khatam….. Silsila jaari rahega.
