Shahatoot ki shakh pe baithi Meena bunti hai resham ke dhage : Gulzar on Meena Kumari...

Kuchh log gham ki duniya men jine ke liye bane hote hain. Meena Kumari ki shakhsiyat bhi kuchh aisi hi thi. Parde ki tragedy queen ne kab apani zindagi men gamon se khelana shuru kar diya shayad unhen bhi pata nahin chala. Mahazabin ke naam se janmi aur garibi men pali badi is adakara ne apane abhinay ka sikka pachas aur sath ke dashak men is tarah chalaya ki kisi bhi film se unaka judav hi usake hit ho jane ka sabab ban jata tha.

Apne career ki oonchaee ko chhu rahi Meena ji ke Kamaal Amrohi sahab se prem, fir vivah aur kuchh salon bad talaq ki katha to ham sabhi janate hi hain. Meena ji ka thos vyaktitva, unaki aazadakhyali, apani zindagi ke nirnay khud lene ki kshamata aur abhinay ke prati lagan unhen jis mukam par le gaee thi vo shayad Kamaal sahab se unake khatte hote rishton ki vajah bhi bani. Rishton ko na sanbhal pane ke dard aur akelepan se nizaat pane ke liye Meena Kumari ji ne apane aap ko sharab men dubo diya.

Yoon to Meena kumari apane dil men umadate jazbon ko diaryi ke pannon men hamesha vyakt kiya karati thin par unaka akelapan, unaki peeda aur hamasafar ki bevafaee unaki ghazalon aur nazmon men rah rah kar ubhari. Misal ke taur par unaki is nazm ko len.Meena ji ke kavy se mera pahala parichay unaki is dil ko chhu lene vali najm se huaa tha

tukade-tukade din beeta, dhajji-dhajji raat mili
jisaka jitana aanchal tha, utani hi saugat mili
jab chaha dil ko samajhen, hansne ki aavaj suni
jaise koee kahata ho, lo fir tumako ab maat mili
baten kaisi ? ghaten kya ? chalate rahana aath pahar
dil-sa sathi jab paya,bechaini bhi sath mili


39 varsh ki aayu men is duniya se rukhasat hote huye vo apani 25 niji diaries ke panne Gulzar sahab ko vasiyat kar gaeen. Gulzar ne unaki ghazalon aur nazmon ki kitab hind pocket books dvara prakashit karaee hai. Pichhle mahine jab ranchi ke pustak mele se guzra to usamen Meena kumari ki shayari ke aalava kuchh aur bhi padhne ko mila aur vo bhi Gulzar ki lekhani se.

Gulzar is kitab men unake bare men likhate hain ..
Meena ji chali gaeen. kahati thin
rah dekha karega sadiyon tak,
chhod
jayenge yah jahan tanha
Aur jate huye sachmuch sare jahan ko tanaha kar
gaeen; ek daur ka daur apane sath lekar chali gaeen. Lagata hai, duaa men thin.
duaa khatm huee, aamin kaha, uthin, aur chali gaeen. Jab tak zinda thin, sarapa
dil ki tarah zinda rahin. dard chunati rahin, batorati rahin aur dil men samoti
rahin.Samandar ki tarah gahara tha dil. vah chhalak gaya, mar gaya aur band ho
gaya, lagata yahi ki dard lavaris ho gaye, yatim ho gaye, unhen apananevala koee
nahin raha. Mainne ek bar unaka portrait nazm karke diya tha unhen. likha tha...

shahatoot ki shakh pe baithi Meena
bunati hai resham ke
dhage
lamaha-lamaha khol rahi hai
patta-patta been rahi hai
ek-ek
sans bajakar sunati hai saudayan
ek-ek sans ko khol ke, apane tan
par
lipatati jati hai
apane hi tagon ki qaidi
resham ki yah shayar ik din
apane hi tagon men ghutakar mar jayegi.


Padhakar hans
padin. kahane lagin–‘janate ho na, ve tage kya hain ? unhen pyar kahate hain.
mujhe to pyar se pyar hai. Pyar ke ehasas se pyar hai, pyar ke nam se pyar hai.
Itana pyar koee apane tan se lipatakar mar sake, to aur kya chahiye ?’
unhin
ka ek panna hai mere samane khula huaa. likha hai....

pyar socha tha, pyar dhoondha tha
thandi-thandi-si hasaraten dhoondhi
sondhi-sondhi-si, rooh ki mitti
tapate, nokile, nange raston par
nange pairon ne daudakar, thamakar,
dhoop men senkin chhanv ki chotein
chhanv men dekhe dhoop ke chhale

apane andar mahak raha tha pyar
khud se bahar talash karte the


Apani aur Meena kumari ji ki chand panktiyon ke dvara Gulzar sahab ne unake jatil vyaktitv ko kitani aasani se pathakon ke liye paradarshi bana diya hai. Agar Gulzar ne Meena ji ke kavi man ko tatolane ki koshish ki hai to sangeetakar Khayyam ko Meena ji ke dil ki vyatha ko unaki aavaj ke madhyam se nikalane ka shrey jata hai.



Khayyam dvara sangitabaddh album I write I recite EMI/HMV mein, Meena ji ne apani dil ki manobhavanaon ko badi bareeki se apane svar men dhala hai. Is album se li gaee unaki ye ghazal mujhe behad pasand hai. Aasha hai aapako bhi pasand aayegi


aaGhaaz to hotaa hai anjaam nahiiN hotaa
jab merii kahaanii meN vo naam nahiiN hotaa

jab zulf kii kaalikh meN ghul jaaye ko’ii raahii
bad-naam sahii lekin gum-naam nahiiN hotaa

haNs haNs ke javaaN dil ke ham kyouN na chune TukRe
har shaKhs kii qismat meN ina’am nahiiN hotaa

bahte hu’e aaNsuu ne aaNkhoN se kahaa tham kar
jo mae se pighal jaaye vo jaam nahiiN hotaa

din Duube haiN yaa Duubii baaraat liye kashtii
saahil pe magar ko’ii kohraam nahiiN hotaa
