Asantosh Ke Din by Dr. Rahi Masoom Raza

Click Here to Read this post in Hindi (Devnagari) script.

'Rahi Masoom Raza' ki likhi ghazalon , filmi patakathaon se to mera poorv parichay tha, par ek upanyasakar ke roop men mainne unhen pahale nahin pada tha. unake nidhan par chitthajagat men unake sahityik jivan ki jhanki jaroor padane ko mili thi aur ye bhi pata chala tha ki 'aadha ganv' unaki ek prasiddh rachana hai. isaliye apane pustakalay men mote-mote granthon ke bich dabi sahami jab yah pustak apana asantosh jahir karati dikhi to ise padane ki utsukata huee.

rahi ka ye upanyas assi ke dashak men munbaee men huye bhishan dango ki prshthabhoomi men likha gaya hai. dangon ki bhayavahata aur usake pichhe ki chhichhali razaniti se vyathit 'rahi' bina kisi lag lapet ke dharadar bhasha men apani bat kahate hain jo aaj bhi utani hi prasangik hai. maharashtr men aaj jis tarah ki razaniti ho rahi hai usake beej assi ke dashak men vibhinn kshetriy dal pahale hi bo chuke the. jin prashnon ko rahi masoom raza sahab ne apani is kitab men uthaya tha, usaka uttar pane ke liye ham sabhi aaj bhi joojh rahe hain. misal ke taur par rahi ke in savalon par gaur karen..

"...shri bal thakare "aamachi mumbai kahate hain. parantu 'aamachi' ki paribhasha kya hai? usaki simayen kya hain! aur yadi bambaee aamachi' hai to hindustan kisaka hai?

bambaee shri bal thakare ki hai. tamilanadu DMK ya AIDMK ka hai . aandhr NTR ka hai.....panjab bhindaravale ka hai. banaras bhagavan shankar ka hai. ajamer khvaja mueenauddin chishti ka hai! UP eta ke dakuon ka hai aur razasthan chanbal ke dakuon ka.....par mujhe koee sare jahan se achchha jo hindustan hai usaki postal edres nahin batata. yah nahin batata ki hidustan ka dakhil kharij kisake nam hai?
ai lavaris mulk tu mera hai. ......."

dangon ke itihas men police ki karyapranali par hamesha prashnachinh uthate aaye hain. dangon men police ke vyavahara, usaki manasikata ko khule shabdon men vyakt karate huye vo kahate hain

"...tum marathe itana tachi kyoon hote ho?" abbas ne poochha. "are bhaiya UP men bhi police musalamanon ko marati hai. yahan police men marathe jyada hai. jo karnatak maharashtr ki sima par karnatak ke brahmanon aur marathon ke bich ladaee hogi to vah karnatak ke brahmanon ko bhi maregi. uttar pradesh ki PAC men kanyakubj brahman jyada hain to vah thakuron, harijanon aur musalamanon ko marati hai. police men hamin tum hote hain na. ham apane muhallon, apane gavon,apane kasbon ke sare dara, vahan ki sari nafaraten, sare tanav lekar police kvatars men jate hain. police men musalaman jyada honge to police hinduon ko maregi........"

yek sau gyarah panne ki is kitab men rahi dvara rachit charitr utane mahattvapoorn nahin hai. mahattvapoorn hai to in charitron ka samajik parivesh aur unake ird gird panapati samasyayen. upanyas ke patron ka prayog rahi munbaee ya ek tarah se kahen to poore desh ke samajik dhanche men faili garibi, ashiksha, jativada, sanpradayikata aur ochhi razaniti ke chakravyooh ka pardafash karane men karate hain. ab yahin dekhiye mumbai ki slum mein rahate aur panapate parivaron ki dasha disha ka kitana jivant chitran kiya hai raza sahab ne

".....khate pite garib vah hai jo vastav men garib nahin hain. jab bambaee aaye to vo avashy garib the. kothari bhi n le sake to kahin sarakari jamin par ilake ke dada ki ijajat se jhopadi dal ke rahane lage.
yah jhopadi premachand ki kahaniyon si jhopadi nahin hoti. ise jhopadi isaliye kahate hain ki isaka namakaran nahin kiya ja saka hai. yah tin char fit oonchi ek chij hoti hai jisaki divaren sade gale paiking ke bakse ki hoti hain. oopar fati huee tirapal ya plastik ka tukada, n daravaja, na khidaki. log unase rengakar andar jate hain aur rengakar bahar jate hain...yah eemanadar kamagaron ki jhopadiyan hain fir inhin jhopadiyon men hari lal jhandiyan laga kar dulhan le jayi jati hai. fir inhin jhopadiyon men bachche hote hain...fir un bachchon men koee jebakatara ho jata hai. koee kachchi daru ke dhandhe men lag jata hai...koee kisi dada ke sath lagakar kisi taskari ya MP, MLA ki chhatr chhaya men chala jata hai. fir ghar men thoda paisa aane lagata hai. jhopadi ka jara kad nikal aata hai. daravaja lag jata hai. khidakiyan ban jati hain. tin ki chhat pad jati hai. fir idhar udhar ki jamin jud jati hai. kabhi kabhi ek manjil or chad jati hai aur chhat tail ki ho jati hai...."


rahi ka man akhand bharata, anekata men ekata, dharmanirapekshata jaise jumalon ko jamini hakikat se bahut door manata hai. unake dil ki narazagi is kadar hai ki vo bade bade razanetaon ko bhi nahin bakhshate..

"...log kahate hain pandit motilal ki musalaman patni thi..han bhaee to patni thi na !aur priyadarshani ne jo firoj gandhi se shadi ki...firoj gandhi parasi the jo vah musalaman hote to gandhiji yah shadi kabhi na hone dete....."

kitab sirf razanetaon par tanj nahin kasati.. sath hi ali saradar jafari aur majarooh sulatanapoori jaise pragatishil aur dimagi shayar raza sahab ki lekhani ki chapet men aa jate hain.

par jab vo kahate hain ki is desh men

"....dharmanirapekshata ki jamin bahut kamajor hai. kudal favade ki jaroorat nahin hai, nakhoon se jara sa khurachen to dharmanirapekshata kagaj ki tarah fat jati hai aur koee shahi imam,, koee devaras, koee bhindaravale, koee bal thakare nikal aata hai. sanpradayikata ka pret hamare andar dilon ki kisi gali men chhup kar baitha hai aur jab kisi tarah se roshani aane lagati hai to ye pret uthakar dil ke daravaje khidakiyan band kar deta hai. ...."

to mera dil bhi unake jajbaton ki gavahi deta hai. jaisa ki kitab ke aaranbh men prakashak ke not men kaha gaya hai ki

"is krti ki mang hai ki in savalon se joojha aur takaraya jaye. isi samay isake uttar talash kiye jayen anyatha manushy ke astitv ki koee garanti nahin rahegi."
