Gunahon Ka Devta

Pichle hafte hi is novel ko padh paya tha aur jaisi ki umeed thi is ki kahani ne mujhe hila ke rakh diya. Chander, Sudha, Binti, Pammi ye sare patra (character) mere ird gird hi ghoomte dikhayi pade. Aur tabhi se ye iksha (desire) thi ki jaise hi kuch samay mile is pe kuch likhoon.....

Kaun sa Gunaah kaisa Gunaah!
Kisi se zindagi bhar sneha rakhne ka ..
Aur jab wo sneha apni paraakaasthaa (limit)pe pahuchne lage to uska tyaag karne ka ..
Hain na azeeb baat!
Par yahi to kiya Chander ne apni Sudha ke sath
Is bhulawe mein ki duniya pyar ki aisi pavitrata (purity)ke geet gayegi
Pyar bhi kaisa...

Sudha ghar bhar mein alhad purwayi ki terah tod phod machne wali sudha, Chander ki aankh ke ek ishaare se subah ki naseem ki terah shaant ho jati thi. .
Kab aur kyun usne Chander ke ishaaron ka yeh maun anushashan (discipline) sweekaar kar liya tha, ye use khud bhi maaloom nahin tha aur ye sab itne swaabhaawik (natural) dhang se itna apne aap hota gaya ki koi is prakriya (process) se waakif nahin tha…

Donon ka ek doosre ke prati adhikaar aur aakarshan itna swaabhaawik tha jaise sharad ki pavitrata yaa subah ki raushani.

Aur apni is Sudha ko na chahte huye bhi usne us raah mein jhonk diya jis par wo kabhi nahin chalna chaahti thi. Sudha to chup chaap dukhi man se hi sahi us raah pe chal padi.
Aur Chander…..
Kya Chander ka balidaan (sacrifice)use devtaa bana paya?
Jo samaaj (society) ke saamne apne pyaar ko ek aadarsh ek misaal saabit kerna chahta tha, wo apne khud ke antarman (conscience) se na jeet saka.
Aur jab apne aap ko khud se haarta paaya to apna sara gussa, sara krodh un pe nikaala jinke sneha, jinka prem se wo apne vyaktitwa (personality) ki uchaiyon tak pahunch paya tha.
To kya Chander ko apni bhool ka ehsaas hua?
Kya wo kabhi pata kar paya ki kahan uska jeewan darshan (philosophy of life ) use dhokha de gaya?

Par ye bhi to sach hai na ki zindagi mein bahut si batein waqt rehte samajh nahin aatin.
Aur jab samajh aati hain tab tak bahut der ho chuki hoti hai…..

Chander hum mein se alag to nahin!

Chander ne bhi yahi ghalti ki apne pyar ko yatharth ke dharatal ya zameeni haqiqat se upar kar ke dekha, ek idealistic love ki avdhaarna ko lekar jo bheetar se khokhli (hollow) nikli. Apne dukh ko pee kar bhi wo jeewan mein kuch kar paata to bhi kuch baat thi. Par wo to buri terah kunthit(complexed) ho gaya apne aap se apne doston se…sudha use is kuntha se nikaal to saki par kis keemat pe..

Bahut aascharya (surprise) hota hai ki kyun hum nahin samajh pate ki kabhie kabhie mamooli shaksh ban ke jeene mein hi sabse badi uplabdhi (achievement) hai! Kya hum wahi ban ke nahin reh sakte jo hum sachchi mein hain. Apne ko doosron ki nazron mein ooncha sabit karne ke liye apne aap ko chalawa dena kahan tak sahi hai…..…..?


About the book
Gunahon ka Devta was first published in 1959. It was written by Dharmavir Bhaarti. Rated as one of the best written Hindi novel for its superb characterisation it is reprinted more than 30 times till date.
And before I leave u lets see what the writer has to say about his superb creation.

"..While writing this novel I experienced same type of feelings, which one does, when one is praying with full faith in the time of deep distress.... It appears as if same very prayer has been ingrained in my heart and I am repeating it...."

KL said...

Oh! I'm glad that you're back and blogging again :). I'll be reading the post over the next couple of days, and of course ask you questions that I didn't understand :).

Manish said...

Hi Isha and KL
Aap donon ne ye novel nahin padha hoga.
Sudha is a normal girl residing in village when se comes to town of Allahabad to reside with his father who is a univ professor.
Chander is a bright student in that college and it so happens the Prof sahab becomes guardian of chander
Since Chander has no one in the city he becomes a family member of Mr Shukla's family.
Aur yahin se shuru hua dosti ka wo atoot bandhan jise wo poori terah tab tak nahin samajh paye jab tak ghar mein Sudha ki shadi ki baat chalne lagin.
Chander ko laga ki wo apni rishton ko pavitrata ki us uchai pe le jayega jis ke liye physically ek hona juroori nahin!
So chander ne Sudha ki shadi kara to dee par........

Akruti said...

After reading each line here in Hindi i decided not to use hindi in ur blog,kind of scared that i would make a mistake,well,i am comfortable in hindi but for now i would prefer english.First,thanx for blogrolling two of my blogs,but unfortunately Hawa ka Jhonka is not updated frequently,i stick to akruti:)
i blogrolled u too,wouldn want to miss any post here,and the music list which i see in the sidebar is all my fav again:)specially the songs in Parineeta are amazing, chitra in "raat hamari tho.. made me cry:)
Now abt the post,in my eigth class i had to choose between Hindi and telugu as my secondlanguage and i love both equally but telugu won.My hindi teacher felt sad and angry also.I met her after my graduation and that day she gave me a book,Gunahon ka devta" and i dint know the value of it for abt six months because i never read it.but when i did all i knew was it became one of my fav.,and it sure made me ask the same question as u quoted "Is it so difficult to be what we are,to do what we feel?is it needed to pretend to be idealistic when we cannot withstand the pressure and breakdown forever?
I still have the book but never read it again.will do sometime:)

Manish said...

Hi Akruti
kyun bhai hum koi aapki Hindi teacher ki terah thode hi hain ki galti hone pe daant pilate :)ha ha so scared hone ki koi baat nahin. Nice to know that u r also comfortable with this language.Mere bhi do blog hain ek hindi doosra english mein.Par jab dil se judi huyi baat kehni hoti haispecially if it is related to music or literature to hindi ke bine mera kaam nahin chalta.:)

Blogroll yisliye kiya ki we have similar taste & passion for music! I will not say much about it right now Wait for my next post and u will know.

aur haan never expected ki tumne ye book padhi hogi. I was really pleasently surprised! Thats what I wanted to say...

"Is it so difficult to be what we are,to do what we feel?is it needed to pretend to be idealistic when we cannot withstand the pressure and breakdown forever?

hi
I am Manish Pandey from bhopal.
i started reading this novel today & for continuos 9 hours & now is 12.45 am & i have completed it.
after completing it i found that i am in allahabad & with chandar ( or being as chander), but when i see around in my room , i found that i am not in allahabd but in my bed in bhopal with in front of my timetable of my running exams of b.e..
my sir told me about the book last week & tell that it is a must read for every person who beleives that he is a alive person.t from then i was busy in my papers as my exam started yestreday.after yestreday's paper i get a chance to visit the national book fair on the second last day of it & found the " Gunahon ka Devta ". I just bought it from there & return to house. today afternoon i started reading it & sinked into the house of dr shukla & the lives of chander, sudha,pammi,binti.
after reading it i found that i have read a very nice chapter of what called "life".
i have studies to do for my next paper but i am satisfied with my today's 9 hours time living with the characters of my life & also the familier places.

i will be in touch with you people.

ansha said...

I started reading the novel a few days back and to be very honest I haven’t been able to put it down for these past few days. Though I am not an avid reader of anything literary and most of the time had been using lit. for mere entertainment purpose. Before I read this novel I used to consider literature as a tool for emotional creatures. I was completely sold on science. But this novel changed my entire perspective. I used to study Shakespeare but wouldn’t touch hindi with a bargepole even. I am unable to read hindi very fast maybe because I am always in an English environment. I started reading this novel by simply skipping through pages but this novel had such an effect on me that I was simply thinking the whole day about the characters. I don’t get involved in films stories etc. but here I kept asking myself why Sudha had to die .
I have been unable to understand this novel properly maybe someone could help me out with this. My email add is ansha_pearl@rediffmail.com

silbil said...

hi...read this just now...Gunahon ka devta is one of my least liked novels
the self inflicted torture of both chander and sudha didn't go down well with me at all
DDT and Baby in KASAP are my hero and heroine...so real that it's a delight to know them better....

Manish said...

Hi Ansha
sorry dear could see ur comment today only.
Why Sudha has to die?
yuppp it leaves one frustrated! But that's why novel has got its name Gunahon Ka Devta . It was Chander's overidealism which led to misery of Sudha and eventually she has to die. I have tried to explain that in my post...

Manish said...

Nandini Gunahon Ka Devta ki kahani aaj se 30-35 saal pehle ke samajik dharatal mein buni gayi hai. Bharti ji ne Chander ka jo charitra chitran kiya hai wo us samay ke ek aise navyuvak ka hai jisne pyar ko apne kore aadarshwaad ki bali chadha diya. Chandar ke charitra se kise pyar ho sakta hai? Hum sab kadaapi us raaste ko na chune jo chander aur sudha ne chuna. par ye bhi dekho ki us samay mein aise charitra the samaaj mein jinki maansikta ko bharti ji ne bakhoobi ubhara hai.

Banwari Lal Sharma said...

Dear Manish,

Thanks for commenting on my blog. Read both of your blogs. You write pretty well in Hindi. In fact you write very well.

Its a coincidence that we both wrote on Kshama Karna Jiji and Gunahon Ka Devta. Trust me, I liked Gunahon ka Devta like anything. Sudha seems most lovable person in the world. :-)

Pankaj_Basliyal said...

Manish.. Nice to see ur description abt of feelings touched by bharti ji in his tremendious novel "Gunahon ka Devta"..

Sach kahun to pahli bar maine ise yun hi pad dala tha.. meri umar kareeb 11-12 sal rahi hogi...na zindagi ki parakh thi aur na samajh..
waqt ki karwat ne mujhe khud ki galati sudharane ka ek mauka diya .. 10 sal bad mujhe yahi upnyas dubara padne ko mila... aur sach sach kahun to wakaiii ye prem ki parakastha(limit) janane ka waqt tha mere liye... ye man ke un samst bandhano se azad hone ki ek pukar thi jise bharti ji ne aaj se 47 sal pahle hi lekhani me dhal liya tha...

mere nazariye se dekhoge to chandar ko gunehagar nahi paooge..
sach kahun to har insan ko haq hai is tarah ke gunah karne ka.. bas ye duniya ka dastur hi azeeb kah lo ya waqt ka fer kah lo...
is duniya me dusaro ke sath bade bade jurm karke log bach nikalate hain par khud ke sath kiya gaya ek chhota sa gunah har kisi ko bhari padta hai...
maafi ke riwaz hamari duniya me khatam ho chuke hain.. log chot khana seekh rahe hain maaf karna nahi seekhte..
yese me chandar ki soch jayaj banati hai.. log to yahi kahte na .. professor ke ghar me jakar professor ki hi ladki fans li...
ye duniya ki soch hai .. aur is soch se ladne ka ek hi tareeka tha.. isse uncha pratiman sthapit karna.. wahi chandar ne bhi kiya...
aur usi partiman ka asar hai ki aaj aap uske pyar ki pavitrta ko gaharayi dene ki koshish kar rahe ho...
khair.. it was really touching to see people commenting on this novell..
One thing i will suggest to everybody..
if any of u ever read
" Mujhe chand chahiye... "
if not then u should.. becouse it s one of those greatest novell of indian history which sets parameter to others...

thanks
Pankaj

Manish said...

Pankaj Pehle to swagat hai aapka is blog pe !
Itni tafseel se apne vichar rakhne ka shukriya Pankaj ji! Chander jaise log aaj ki is duniya mein shayad hi milenge.
Par sach ye bhi hai ki mahantam tyag karne aur duniya ki nazron mein ooncha dikhne ke liye usne na keval apni mitra varan khud ka jeewan bhi kunthit kar diya.

Mujhe Chand Chahiye ki prashansha maine bahuton se suni hai par abhi tak padh nahin paya hoon,

rachana said...

read twice(ur post in hindi and not the novel!)but didnt get the courage to coment..but these lines gave me the courage to have my say!

after reading ur blog i got to know that i actually know nothing at all abt hindi novels..i never tried in fact..was always scared to hold those heavy books.. and the other thing was my life was so fast till now...but anyway after reading all those summaries of the books i will/i have to read those books..thanks!

Manish bhai ... padh ke bahut khushi huyi ki aaj bhi is novel ko padhne aur chahne wale hai .. maine ye novel kuch terah saal pehle padha tha aur kayi dino tak buri tarah hila hua tha .... un dino main allahabad mein hi padhai karta tha ... bahut sare logo se padhne ki request ki ... college ke aise logo ne bhi mang mang ke padha jo hindi novel padhna shaan ke khilaf samajhte the ... aaj aise hi khoj raha tha ki kaha se ye book khareedu to aapna ye blog mil gaya ... soocha aa hi gaya hu aap se do char baatein karta jau ....

aaj tak ye kitab kitni baar padhi hai mein khud nahi janti. bus jab bhi takleef me hoti hoon ise padh leti hoon. dard apni parakashtha par pahunch kar khatam ho jata hai aur toofaan ke baad ki si shanti ka anubhav hota hai. yehi kahungi ki dharamveer bharti ji ki tarah mere liye is upanyaas ko padhna peeda ke samay me poori aastha ke saath prarthana karne jaisa hi hai.

Manish said...

Anand Sahi kaha aapne charitra chitran ki drishti se is upanyas apne aap mein anootha hai isliye koyi bhi ise padhkar isse prabhavit huye bina nahin reh pata.


anonymous Pata nahin aap baar nbaar kaise padh leti hain. Mujhse to Sudha ka marna itna vyathit kar deta hai ki dubara us ansh tak jane ki himmat nahin hoti aur chander par jhubjhlahat hoti hai so alg.

Anonymous said...

sahi kaha aapne ki sudha ka marna vyathit kar deta hai. par kisi aur ka dard apne dard ko bhulne me sahayak hota hai. isliye hi sudha ki taklif ko shiddat se mehsoos kar apni takif ko bhulne ki koshish karti hoon.

Manish said...

hmmmm, sahi hai jab doosron ko kashton ke beech aap ghira pate hain to aapka khud ka kashta bauna lagne lagta hai

charu said...

sirf ek baat puchna chahati thi. aksar logon ko kehte suna ki sudha kamjor thi. meri sabse acchi dost ka bhi yahi kehna hai. par mera manana ye hai ki insaan jab kisi se pyaar karta hai to us ko kho dene ka darr insaan ko kamjor kar deta hai. sudha ko bhi shayad yahi darr tha. wah har haal me chandar ko khush dekhna chahati thi aur uski baat manana sudha apna dharm samajhti thi. aise me agar chandar ke kehne par usne shaadi ki to kya wo galat thi? kya wo kamjor thi? mere vichaar se kamjor to chandar tha jisme apne hi faisale ko sach sabit karne ki himmat aur shiddat nahi thi. aapka kya sochte hain?

मेरी राय तुम्हारे कथन से मिलती जुलती है.
सुधा ने सोचा कि शायद चंदर जो कह रहा है वो भले ही उसके दिल से मेल नहीं खाता पर वही चंदर के भविष्य के लिए सही हो। चंदर के लिए उसका प्रेम उसे यही करने पर विवश कर गया। तुमने भी लिखा है कि वो उसकी बात मानना वो अपना धर्म समझती थी। रही खोने की बात ....खो तो वो चंदर को वैसे भी रही थी, पर उसे वो खुश और जीवन में सफल देखना चाहती थी।

निश्चय ही चंदर बेहद कमजोर इंसान निकला। पर जिन आदर्शों और बलिदान के बल पर चंदर अपनी महानता साबित कर सकता था उसमें वो विफल ही नहीं हुआ वरन कुंठाग्रस्त भी हो गया। उसने अपने व्यवहार से सुधा को कष्ट तो पहुँचाया ही साथ साथ खुद एक दिग्भ्रमित इंसान बन कर रह गया। शायद इसीलिए चंदर के चरित्र के लिए लेखक ने गुनाहों का देवता शीर्षक चुना।

रही तुम्हारी मित्र की बात तो चारु, मुझे लगता है कि हम जिस चरित्र में अपने व्यक्तित्व की छाया पाते हैं उसे जल्द ही स्वीकार लेते हैं और इसके ठीक उलट जहाँ ऍसा नहीं होता उसे एक सिरे से खारिज कर देते हैं। हर व्यक्ति की अपनी एक सोच, अपना एक स्वाभाव होता है। इसीलिए एक ही परिस्थिति से लड़ने के लिए दो इंसान अलग अलग राह चुनते हैं। इसके आलावा ये बात भी है कि हर पात्र का चरित्र वो जिस समाज में रह रहा है जिस काल में जी रहा है उससे ही निकल के आता है। आज से ४० -५० साल पहले के समाज को आज की नज़रों से देखने से सुधा कमजोर ही दिखेगी पर तत्कालीन सामाजिक परिवेश और काल की उपेक्षा कर ये अवलोकन सही नहीं होगा।

Mohammad said...

Hi EveryBody,

Kitne differerent kism ke comments aaye sudha aur chandar pe, kuchh khatta tha to kuchh meetha, baharhaal har kisi ko ye adhikaar hai ki wo apna ijahare khayal kare,

Abhi tak mujhe koi bhee aisa comment nahin mila jo sach sach sabit kar sake ki akhir galti kiski thee, sudha ki ya fr chandar, sudha kamjor thi ya fir chandar nirjive nikala, chandar mahanata ki uchain tak pahucnhana chahta tha ya fir na jane kya banana chahta tha, usne apni mahatvakanxha ke liye apni ehasason ka gala dabaya ya fir sudha ki pavitr jindagi ko apavitr kiya,.

Aksar aisa hota hai ki koi sunahara patthar kisi pahad jaise chattan ke niche daba hua hota hai, jise koi chahe to bhee nahin utha sakta, kya kabhi kisi ne indrdhanush mala ko apne gale ki mala bana saka hai. Insaan agar galti karta hai to sirf itna ki wo apni bebasi chhuapane ke chakkar mein na jane kya kya kar jata hai, khair.

Chandar bichare ne bhee yahi kiya aur jab insaan gire to usko parchhain bhee gir jati hai, Jab sudha ki shadi professior sahab ne fix ki to use us waqt tak apne pyar ka ehsaas tak bhee na tha, wo to bas apni jindagi bhar samjhata tha, aur jab use is baat ka ehsaas hota wo itna door ja chuka tha ki apni bhavnaon ko kisi ke samne rakhne se hasil hee kya hota to usne bas apne dil ko us baat par raji karne ki koshish ki jo mumkin hee na tha, maine jab novel padni shuru ki to shuru mein hee samajh gaya tha ki, chandar ka kya hoga aur sudha ka haan farq hua to bas itna ki marna chandar ko tha aur bali pe chadi sudha rani, khair kahani mein kuchh to twist hua,

kabhi kabhi jindagi mein kuchh aise mor aate hain jinpe sirf aankh band karke chalana hota hai, aur takdeer ke hawale apne aap ko kar dena padta hai, wahi kiya sudha ne, aur rahi baat chandar ke vyaktitve ka girna to wo natural tha, ghutan ek aise cheej hai jispe gujarati hai wahi samjhata hai, chandar ne sudha ko jis aag mein dala tha use us baat ka pura ehsaas tha aur jab yahi ehsaas usase baar baar sawal karta tha jiska jawab uske paas kuchh na tha, aur fir wo khudko itna takleef dena chahta tha ki wo khud ko bhool jaye, shayad aisa hee kuchh kiya chandar ne shudha ki shadi ke baad,

Khair, Bharti ji agar aap fir is novel ka doosara part likhe ya fir kuchh aur to, sirf usme chandar aur sudha ki bebasi dikhane ki koshish kariyega mere khayal se sirf ek yahi pahloo aap apni novel mein cover na kar sake baki to sirf itna kahunga ki thanks for such novel,

राम जाने कि धर्मवीर भरती की मनः स्थिति उस वक्त क्या रही होगी जब उन्होंने इतनी महान कृति को रच डाला! इस कहानी ने मुझे झकझोर कर रख दिया ! क्या कोई लड़की सुधा जैसी हो सकती है? ये प्रश्न मेरे दिमाग में हर वक्त कोंधता रहा? क्या इस जीवन में कभी सुधा जैसी पवित्र प्रेम की मूर्ति को जानने का मौका मिलेगा?लोगों ने कहा कि ये तो केवल एक कहानी है ? लेकिन फ़िर मैंने सोचा कि कहानी भी किसी न किसी घटना से प्रेरित होती है! इसका मतलब सुधा जैसा चरित्र जरूर रहा होगा,क्यूंकि पहले के कहानीकार आजकल की तरह अंधाधुंध नही लिखते थे,उनकी कहानी के पीछे एक प्रेरणा दायक चरित्र होता था!इस बात ने मेरे मन को इतना संतोष प्रदान किया जिसे में शब्दों में बयां नही कर सकता!आजकल कितनी फिल्में कितनी कहानियाँ सुनने को मिलती हैं लेकिन इतनी मर्मस्पर्शी कथा जिसका एक एक शब्द किसी अति सुंदर आभूषण में लगे एक एक रत्न की तरह प्रतीत होता है,न कभी देखी न कभी सुनी!आज कल के समाज में जहाँ हर जगह अनाचार और प्रेम के नाम पर वासना का स्थान श्रेष्ठ हो गया है वहाँ यह कृति एक श्रेष्ठ धर्मं ग्रंथ की तरह लोगों का मार्गदर्शन कर सकती है! आजकल के युवाओं खासकर स्त्रियों को सुधा से प्रेरणा लेनी चाहिए ,जिसने अपने जीवन में सच्चे प्रेम का एक महान उदाहरण प्रस्तुत किया है!ये पुस्तक मेरे मन मन्दिर में हमेशा बसी रहेगी और मेरे ह्रदय की कोमल भावनाओं को सदैव जीवित रखेगी,मैं सभी लोगों से आग्रह करूंगा की इस पुस्तक को अवश्य पढ़ें अगर आप प्रेम को सच्चे अर्थों में समझना चाहते हैं!
नमस्कार!

This is one of the best books I have read till date. The character sudha resembles a lot my life. I'm fascinated by this book throughout my youth and even today after such a long period. When I look back into my life then I relate myself a lot to this book. Sudha ne jo kiya apni zindagi agar aap aj mujhse puche to main kahoongi this is extremely rite and the part of chander is too rite. People can befool the character of sundar saying he is the culprit but no one can ever relate to the pain and agony one suffers when he can't explain ..........

hi, myself kavita
yeh novel vakai mein gajab ka hai, or ese padne ke bad aap iske bare mein na soche yeh ho he nahe sakta, apke astitav ko or apke pyar ke najareye ko ek bar yeh jaroor badlega,
jab mene ese pada to mein 13 saal ke the lekin shayad uske bad se pyar ke kuch mayene samaj mein aa gaye,
pehle mein sochte the bagwan krishan ne radha ji se shadi kyun nahe ke lekin ise padne k bad laga shadi pyar ke manjil nahe hote,
pyar sirf pyar hota hai bina kisi bawna ke, yeh b nahe ke hume shadi kerne hai or isliye pyar kerna hai,
bahut such kaha hai isme
pyarrrrrrrrrrrrr
ganga ke tarah pavitr
asman se b unchaa
ek dusre ke takat...........
yeh appe nirbar kerta hai ke ap apne pyar ko apne takat banate hai ya kamjori,
yaha kuch logo ko chander ke charitr par sandeh hai lekin woh apne jagah sahe tha, jab insaan kissi chiz ke bare mein nahe janta tab woh dusro ke batoon par vishvas kerta hai or ulaj jata hai chander ke sath b aisa he hua.

What to say about this Great Novel. I have read it twice once in 2003 and again after 5 years (i.e. in 2008). The scenario were absolutely same. But the Pyaar ke Maayne mere liye har baar is kadar badal gaye ki mujhe lagta hai ki iss saagar mein main ek paani ki boond bhi nahin. Jab bhi main iss novel ke baare mein sochta hun aur apne pyaar se corelate karta hi hun to meri aankhon se aansu zaroor chhalak jaata hai. Hum sab gunahgaar hain bas sudha hi sabse pavitra hai....shayad hi koi itna tyaag de paata ho zindagi mein. I still wait for my sudha to be there with me in my thoughts at least. Still I am in tears while writing these lines from my heart. I cant say much about such a great novel which never ever came across in any other persons mind and it can never be. Jitni baar padho utna hi sukoon milta hai aur khud ko ek baar fir badal jaane ka mann karta hai. Hum apne ko ek aisa hi achha insaan kyun nahin banaa dete, chaah ke bhi hum itne pavitra kyun nahin.
I LOVE 'GUNAHON KA DEVTA' !!!!

Namaskar, Maine Gunaho ka Devata abhi padhni shuru ki hai... Is lekhak ki kala ke aage main natmastak hun... Abhi kuch 50 pages huye hain aur unhone mera dil jeet liya hai :)

Aapka blog dekha... aapki sangeet aur kitaabon ki ruchi ko dekh kar, pooche bina nahi raha jayega: aap kayastha to nahi?

Once I did own this book while I was in Shimla. My hindi language is very poor, phir bhi yeh kitaab padh liya tha.
Could anyone share a .pdf/.doc version of this book? In Manipur ( where I belong, Hindi language is banned by insurgent groups operating here), it seems impossible to get this book.
Anyways, Bharatiji ney " Rishton" ko phir sey define ki hai.

And,I'm glad, I stumble upon this blog while surfing for " Gunahon ka Devta".

Gunaho ka devta was Madness .. what these young ones were upto... "devta, devi, aaradhya, pavitrita, vaasna, ," Oh God.

But whats more unfortunate is this all was true, 35-40 years ago society and psyche was like this only.

I read the book and cried on almost every bloody page till the 'upsanhaar'

relax guys this is just a work of fiction, the product of the some mind just like you and me. I have also read this novel. the positive point of the fiction is you can write what ever you would like to write, it does not matter either your opinion is practicle in real life or not

I'm planning to translate this incredible novel in Manipuri language. Would someone help me about the copyright as where to get or whom to contact etc. Yeh upanyas maine 1998 main Bhopal main pada tha, phir bhi abhitak mere dilo-dimag main hai. Bas itana chahata hoon ki main isey Manipuri main anuvad kar sakun ! Aap logon sey mera nivedan hai ki aap log copyright ke baare main bata dijiye !Thanks in advance. I know translation or trans-literation of book from a language to another one is not a child's play, but I'll take help from the Hindi scholars in and around the world !

Manish
meri hindi bohot acchi to nahin hai par mujhe bhi hindi me hi reply karne ka mann hua apki post padhke.
jab maine ye blog padha jo aapne likha, to aise laga jaise arson baad sacche shabd kaanon me padhe hon.
Aapki likhi hui lines padhke saaf samaz ata hai ki aap kya bolna chah rahe the, aur kahin na kahin hum (atleast mai to) khud ko bhi isse relate kar payi , ki kaise hum is dunia ki bheed me khud hi ko bhool jaten hain...
accha laga, man ko sukoon mila ye janke ki aur bhi log hain jinhe abhi bhi sacchai se pyar hai, aur jinhe khud ke 'khud' hone ka mahatva pata hai. thanks for writing. :)

आप सभी को नमस्ते

मैं रत्ना, मोरिशस से.
गुनाहों का देवता!! यह रचना मैंने इसलिए पढ़ना शुरू किया क्योंकि ये स्य्लाबुस में था..
शुरू में तो मुझे कहानी बार ही ऊबाऊ लगा. मुझे भारती जी की अत्यधिक वर्णन आचे नहीं लगे
पर आज जब में दोबारा इस पुस्तक को पढ़ती हूँ, तो मैं अपने को पूछने से नहीं रोक सकती कि प्रथम वार पढ़ने पर मैं कहाँ चूक गयी जो मुझे इस कहानी कि गहराई का आभास न हुआ.

यह रचना पाठक के भावों को झुंजला देती हैं, विचार विमर्श करने पर विवश करती हैं
जीवन, प्रेम की परिभाषा पर प्रश्न चिन्ह लगाते हैं...

मुझे मनीष जी कि बात बहुत अच्छी लगी:
"Is it so difficult to be what we are, to do what we feel?
Is it needed to pretend to be idealistic when we cannot withstand the pressure and breakdown forever".

इस को पढ़कर हम अपने से पूछते हैं कि क्या हम वैसा ही जीवन व्यतीत करते हैं जो असल में हम चाहते हैं??
जवाब मिलता हैं नहीं और नहीं क्यों...इसलिए कि हम समाज के भय से हालातों के साथ समझओवता कर लेते हैं और अपनी इच्छाओं का गला घोंट डालते हैं
सुधा भी समाज, अपने पिता व चंदर की ख़ुशी के लिए अपने को बलि कर देती हैं ..

धन्यवाद :))
