noor manzil – ek khaufnaak imarat

Mera naam Latika hai.. mere abbu bakery chalaate hain.. kuch hi dinon mein meri shaadi hone waali thi.. lekin tabhi achaanak hamaare ghar par ek badi musibat aan padi.. darasal hamaara ghar gair-maalikaana jagah par bana hua tha to, Municipal Corporation ki aur se jagah chhodane ka notice aa gaya.. abbu nen mere maamu se madad maangi to unhonne, hamaare rahane ka intazaam noor manzil mein kara diya.. ab ham noor manzil jo ek khaufnaak imarat mein panaah to le liye, lekin hamen us jagah par bada bhayaanak ehasaas ho raha tha.. jaise koi darrinda kisi jinda insaan ko noch raha ho, jaise koi maasoom ro ro kar kisi se daya–rahem ki bhikh maang raha ho.. hamanen yah baat abbu se kahi to hamen jam kar daant padi.. us samay hamaare ghar ke haalaat itane khasta ho chuke the ki, din raat mera poora parivaar usi soch mein dooba rahata tha ki, noor manzil se jaana pada to phir kahaan jaayenge.. na koi bachat thi na koi zamin thi.. jise apana ghar samajha tha vah bas ab itihaas ban chooka tha us raat bahut baarish hui.. baarish thami to bijli chali gai.. ham nen socha ghar ki chhat par ja kar khuli hava mein saans lete hain…

Ammi abbu to upar saath aane se rahe.. mera chhota bhai karim aur main chhat par ja kar baithe.. oopar kaaphi andhera tha.. achaanak karim mujh se gussa ho gaya.. mainne usaki naaraazagi ka kaaran puchha to vah mujhe zor se dhakka de kar niche bhaag gaya.. usaki aisi gustaakh harakat se main chaunk gayi.. mera chhota bhai kabhi aisi harakat nahin karata tha.. ab mein oopar vahaan akeli thi.. tabhi achaanak mere kaan ke paas sarasaraahat mahasoos hui.. kisi ke behad paas hone ka ehasaas hua.. main aaj bhi us manahoos ehasaas aur tez badbudaar gandh ko bhooli nahin hoon.. main fauran niche chali jaana chaahati thi.. lekin pichhe mud kar dekhane ki himmat nahin ho rahi thi.. ek pal ke liye mujhe aisa laga jaise mujhe koi jhula jula raha ho, meri pith se halke halke dhakke mahasoos hone lage.. us khaufnaak imarat me wo khaufanaak ehasaas se meri rooh tilamila uthi.. main turant jaan laga kar chikh padi.. kuch hi der mein mere abbu aur ammi wahaan aa pahunche.. ab meri samajh mein aa chooka tha ki karim ke saath bhi kuch aisa hi hua hoga.. mera bhai itana khauph mein tha ki vah to mujhase nazaren bhi nahin mila raha tha.. jaise taise kar ke ham sab sone chale gae.. kapade badalane par mainne dekha meri pith par gahare ghaaw ke nishaan the.. mainne yah baat kisi se nahin kahi.. ab dar ke maare main so bhi nahin pa rahi thi.. chaddar sir par laga kar ushi daraavane manzar ke baare mein soche ja rahi thi.. tabhi achaanak mujhe wahi gandh mahasoos hui.. mainne jatake se chaddar hata di to mera dil dahel gaya.. mere bed ke aasapaas chhote chhote bachche dikhane lage.. un sab ke chehare par sookhe hue khoon ke dhabbe aur maar ke kaale nishaan dikh rahe the.. bachche kabhi meri aur dekhate to kabhi khidaki ki aur ishaara karate.. ek pal ke liye mere dar nen utsuktaa ka roop le liya…

Main us waqt kuch bhi bolane ki haalat mein nahin thi.. main bas rote hue, ishaare se poochhe ja rahi thi, ki vah sab mere paas kyoon aaye hain.. kuch der yahi khaufanaak manzar bana raha.. meri rone ki aavaaz sun kar meri ammi jaag gayi.. usane mere kandhe jhanjor kar mujhe us avastha se baahar kiya.. ammi nen meri baat es baar, gaur se suni.. unako pata tha ki unaki bacchi, fizul mein kabhi aisa naatak nahin karegi.. agale hi din abba ghar ka sona-gahane giravi rakh kar paisa utha lae.. hamne turant maamu ko bula kar  khaufnaak imarat ki chaabi waapes kar di.. ab ham kirae ke makaan mein rahate hain.. kuch hi dinon mein ghar ka lon milane vaala hai.. makaan naya ban jaega lekin noor manzil ki khaufanaak yaade sada ke liye mere zahen mein rahegi.. waise noor manzil ke baare mein udati udati khabar mili hai ki wahaan par ek yatima-khaana hua karta tha, aur Wahaan rahne waale baccho ke saath unhi ke rakhawaale nen bahut zulm kie the.. isi liye un sab ki aatmaen wahaan saalo se bhatak rahi hain.. ” khair ab makaan maamu ka hai” main bilakul nahin chaahati ki unake makaan ki badanaami ho – lekin agar yah sab sach hai to, bas dil se dua hai ki un maasoom baccho ki rooh ko jannat nasib ho jaye aur us darinde ko sada ke liye khatm ker dhe…
