New Officer's Hostel, Patna : Wo 'Ghar' Yaad Aata Hai !

New Officer’s Hostel yaani Patna ke Bailey Road aur Boring Road ke milan bindu ke paas banee bahumanjila imaarat Jise baahar ke log 'Kabootarkhaana' ke naam se bhee jaanate the, par hamaare liye to vah tha hamaara pyaara aashiyaana . 1977 me main yahaa aaya aur kareeb 1994 me yahaa se rukhasat huaa. Yoon kahe yahee mai paDh likh kar baDa hua !

Aaj bhee jab is imaarat ke bagal se gujarata hoon, isamein bitaaye hue pal yaad aate hai . Aaj kee is pravishTi me apane usee pyaare ghar se juDee kuchh khaTTee-meeThee yaadein aap ke samaksh rakhoonga jo aaj bhee mere smarti paTal par ankit hain .

7-8 saal ka raha hoonga jab apane isee ghar se jaatiyo me vibhaajit apane raajy kee pahalee tasaveer dekhee . Waqt 1979-80 ke aas paas ka hogaa. Roj school se ghar aane ke baad jindaabaad murdaabaad ke naare sunayee dete the . Patna ka tabka haDataalee chauk ghar ke paas hee hua karata tha . So saare juloos ghar ke nikaT hee rok liye jaate the. Forward-bakward se tab matalab aage peechhe hee samajh aata tha . Jab Karpooree Thakur ke khilaaf naare lagate to usaka matalab ye hota ki ye aage vaalo kee tolee hai aur jab mukhyamantree kee maseehayee ke charche hote to anumaan laga leta ki aaj ka kunaba peechhe vaalon ka hai . Roj-roj ke is tamaashe ko dekhakar apanee utsukata daba paana jab mushkil ho jaata to aakhir maa se poochh hee baiThate ki maa ham kis taraf hai? Par maan idhar-udhar kee baaton mein aise javaab ko ghumaatee ki prashn anuttarit hee rah jaata tha .

Aise hee ek din baDhate tanaav se maamale ne itana tool pakaDa ki bhaaree patharaav ke javaab me jama huee bheeD par pahale aansoo gas ke gole chhoDe gaye . LaDake bagal kee ek imaarat 'Raajeev Kamal' kee chhat par ja chaDhe. Par police vaale vahaan bhee ja pahunche to vahaan se kood kar saare hamaare isee Officer’s Hostel kee or bhaage . Jo pakaDe ge buree tarah DanDon se piTe . Bhaagate dauDate panaah ke liye pahale talle par kuchh ne sharaN lee. kuchh to kuchh polices ke bhay se seedhe oopar chaDhate hue us jalatee dupaharee me cement kee banee paanee kee Tankee par leT gaye . Aaj bhee vo Tankee baal man se dekhe ge us bhavaayah drishya kee yaad dilaatee hai .

Waqt beetata gaya..... . Officer’s Hostel ke teesare talle ka vo do kamaro ka ghar priy se priyatar hota chala gaya . Hamaara hostel teen blocks me vibhaajit tha . Pratyek talle me 12 ghar aur ek block me 60 . Yaani us chhoTe se parisar me 180 parivaaro ka aashiyaana tha .

1982 kee baat hai . Delhi se Asiad ka seedha prasaaraN aana shuru hua aur usee vakt Patna mein rangeen TV aaya . Hamaare ghar mein nahee aaya to kya hua ham saare bachche subah 9 baje TV dekhane bagal ke parichit ke block me jaate aur seedhe jaakar kaaleen par apana apana aasan jama lete . Aise hee cricket match dekha jaata . Vipakshee Teem ke khilaaDee out nahee hote to log apanee-apanee seats badalate . Vipakshee gendabaaj bahut tang kar raha hota to koee uThake usako apana moja sungha kar aataa. aisee hee bheeD guruvaar, ravivaar kee filmo ke liye juTatee. saamoohik Dhang se TV. dekhane ka vo aanand hee alag tha .

School kee chhuTTee hotee to do seeDhiyo ke beech kee vargaakaar jagah par kabhee carromboard, kabhee vyaapaar to kabhee shataranj kee bisaat bichhatee. Flat kee un seeDhiyo par 1983 me vishva cup final me 180 ke kareeb out hone par dukhee hokar ekatrit hue the ki aage ab kya dekhana ! Aur phir unhee seeDhiyo par apane trnsistor par radio pakistan se aatee commentary ko saathiyo ke beech sunate hue Rothman’s Cup me Pak ko shikast diye jaane par jabaradast ho halla machaaya tha .

Holee aatee to purush, mahilao, laDake laDakiyo kee alag alag Toliyaan ban jaatee . Durga pooja me hafte bhar alag jashn ka maahaul hota . Aur deepaavalee kee sharaaratein to poochhein mat . Ek dafe laDako ne beeDee bam ka lachchha banaakar ek sundar kanya ke ghar kee taraf uchhaala . Ab bam ka guchchha to doosare talle tak pahunchane se pahale hee phaTa par kanya ne usake javaab me jo aaloo bam laDako ke neeche khaDe jhunD ke beecho beech giraaya usake phaTane se jo bhagadaD machee vo ghaTana yaad aate hee ham sab ko hansee ke daure paD jaate the .

Phir ek din vo aaya jab apane is Officer’s Hostel mein kala filmon kee mashahoor taarika Deepti Naval bahoo ban kar aayeen . Us vakt unake pati Prakaash Jha saahab hua karate the aur unaka parivaar 'C Block' mein raha karata thaa. Ab jahaan se bhee unake ghar kee baalakonee dikh sakatee thee log har us jagah me bhar gaye . Kareeb aadhe paun ghanTe ke baad Deepti Naval ne apanee baalakonee se sabaka abhivaadan sveekaara aur unakee ek jhalak dekh ke ham hosTel vaasee tar ge.

Kishoraavastha me ghar ke baahar kee baDee se ye bolakonee hamaare bahut kaam aayee . Vahee vo aitihaasik sthal tha jahaa par 16 saal kee umr me ek shaam ham jab nepathya mein taak rahe the to saamane se hame kisee ne vo kya kahate hai angrejee me vev (wave) kiya . Mai to ekadam se chakaraaya ki ye mere liye to nahee ho sakata , Pahale to apanee baalakonee ke neeche dekha aur phir oopar. Koee nahee tha aur mere is kritya par saamane se muskuraahaT ka daur jaaree tha . Dil kee baDee ikchchha thee ki ham bhee haath hila hee de par haath to jaise sau kilo ke bhaar se jaD ho gaya . Apanee akarmaNyata se upajee kheej ko chhupaane ke lie tab bhee apane isee pyaare ghar kee sharaN lee thee.

Par Officer’s Hostel se juDee sabase romaanchak ghaTana ghaTit huee 1988 me . Us din, din bhar bijalee nahee thee so paanee bhee nahee aaya tha . Der raat jab nagar nigam ka Tanker aaya to paanee bharane ke lie bheeD lag gayee aur jaisa ki aise haalaat me bhaarat ke har kasbe shahar me hota hai mohalle ke baashindo me pahale main.. pahale main... ko lekar aapas me garmaagarmee bhee kaafee huee . Nateejan der raat tak 12 baje sab sone gaye . Raat ke antim pahar kareeb saaDhe teen aur chaar ke aasapaas paanchave talle se saare bartano ke girane kee aavaaje aane lagee . Dharatee se so-so kee dhvani see nikal rahee thee . Mera ghar teesare talle par tha jab meree aankh khulee to mainne palang ko pooree tarah hilata paaya . Pooree taakat se mai chillaaya bhookamp . Ab sabke jagate jagaate to bhookamp ka veg khatm ho gaya tha par phir bhaagate dauDate jab neeche pahunche to apane mohallevaalo kee kaarastaanee ke dilachasp namoone saamane aaye

paDos ka Mehta parivaar bhookamp kee tejee me bhee chaabee ke guchchhe talaashata rah gaya.

Verma jee do talle se waqt rahate hee bachcho sahit neeche utar to aaye par haDabaDaahaT me beevee ko ghar ke andar hee band kar aaye.

aur kuchh logon ko to neeche aane par khyaal aaya ki ve jin vastro me neeche aa ge hai vo saarvajanik sthal hetu bilakul varjit hai . :)

Engineering me jaane ke saath hee Officer’s Hostel se mera juDaav khatm hota gaya par us ghar me bitayein varsho se sanchit yaadein man me hamesha kar liye ghar kar gayeen.

Ab to pitaajee ne to ek makaan Patna me bana liyaa. Par jab bhee koee apane ghar kee baat karata hai aaj bhee Officer’s Hostel kee vo galiyaa jehan me ekadam se ubharatee hain . Waqt ke saath jindagee me kee chhaviyaa kabhee dhoomil nahee hotee......bahut kuchh chhoTee see baat film ke is geet kee tarah.
