Darindon ki Duniya
"Main khud hi tumhen goli maar deti magar......"

"Mujh se wo karne lagi ho......wo....wo.....muhabbat.....kyon?" Imran ne Julia ki baat bich me kaat kar chahakte huye kaha.

"Muhabbat aadmiyon se ki jaati hai....janwaron se nahin. Mujhe sab se muhabbat hai." Wo kaafile waalo ki taraf hath utha kar boli....."jo thakan se nidhaal ho rahe hain. Jo bhawishya ke bhay se kaanp rahe hain. Jin ke honton par maine kayi dinon se muskuraahat nahin dekhi. Mujhe un se muhabbat hai.......tum se nahinnn.....tum jaanwar ho."

"Kyon main jaanwar kyon hun?"

"Kyonki na to tumhaare chehre par thakan ke lakshan hain aur na tum uthte baithte karaahte ho. Maine tumhen uss samay bhi hanste dekha hai jab log ubad-khaabad raaston par gir rahe the, cheekh rahe the, girgida rahe the.......maine tumhen un awasaron par sheving karte dekha hai jab dusron ko apne chehron par hath pherna bhi kasht-dayak tha........tum aadmi nahin ho jaanwar ho."

"Magar mujhe goli kyon maar detin?"

"Nahin......main tujhe goli nahin maar sakti."

"Kyon...?"

"Uska soch kar jis ne tumhen officery pradan kiya hai........lekin kyon pradan kiya hai.......ye main us se zaroor puchhungi."

"Isi liye ki main aadmi nahin jaanwar hun. Wo samajhta hai ki manushyon par pashuon ka shashan hona chaahiye...........warna wo thakan se nidhaal ho kar jeewan ke safar me aage badh hi nahin sakenge."

"Tum thoda idhar dekho......meri taraf." Julia dhire se boli.

"Main tumhari taraf dekh raha hun.....lekin andhera hai."

Juliana dhire dhire uski taraf badhi aur uske kandhon par donon hath rakh diye.

"Arre baap re....." Imran bokhla kar pichhe hata.

"Tum X2 ho..." Julia ki phuphkaar door tak sunaayi di hogi.

"Arre....alag hato.....hushttt.....daddy.....o mummy..." uske kanth se kuchh aisi hi aawazaen nikalne lagi jaise koi bhaybheet bachcha apne mummy-daddy ko pukaarta hai.

"Tum X2 ho.......tumhaare siwa aur koi nahin ho sakta......"

"Aray.....khuda keliye hoto......" Imran ro dene waali aawaz me bola.

Ye shor-gul dusron ne bhi suna....lekin kisi ne bhi wahan tak aane ki awashyakta nahin samjhi. Kyonki Imran ki aawaz sab pahchante the. Unhone socha hoga ki koi murkhta hi ho rahi hogi.

"Tum jhoote ho......X2 tumhaare siwa aur koi nahin ho sakta.........haan main tumhen chaahti hun......tumhaare liye aag me bhi kood sakti hun."
Juliana Fitzwater ne aaram ka saans liya......kyonki nalayakon ki suchi me uska naam nahin tha. Warna usay to dar tha ki shayad usay bhi X2 suspend kar de. Lekin aisa nahin hua. X2 ka kahar kewal Captain Jaffery aur Sargent Nashad par gira tha. Kyonki un donon ke kaaran hi ab tak kayi bane banaaye kaam bigad chuke the.

Phir bhi X2 chhoot deta raha. Lekin Model Town waali ghatna aisi thi jise andekhi kar dena asambhav tha. Alfanse aur Thressia kewal Jaffery aur Nashad ke kaaran nikal jaane me safal huye the. Agar X2 ke aadmi samay par pahuch gaye hote to halaat sire se badal chuke hote.

Unhen der isliye huyi thi ki raaste me Captain jaffery aur sargent Nashad aapas me lad gaye the. Pahli baar bhi thressia Jaffery ki hi murkhta ke kaaran faraar huyi thi.......aur iss baar bhi Jaffery hi unke nikal jaane ka kaaran bana.

Parinaam swaroop ab secret service ke sadassyon ki suchi kuchh iss prakar bani thi....

(1) Juliana Fitzwater
(2) Tanwir Ashraf
(3) Captain Khawar
(4) Leutinent Chauhan
(5) Leutinent Siddiqi
(6) Safdar Sayeed
(7) Sargent Nomani.

Aathwin jagah khaali thi. Julia ko aasha thi ki wo bhi laldi hi bhar jaayegi. Lekin uske sapnon me bhi ye baat nahin thi ki secret service ka aathwaam member Imran hoga. X2 ne usay phone par bataaya....."Sir Sultan ki sifarish par iss samay aathwaan member Imran hoga."

"Imran?" Julia ne hairat se duhraaya. "Kya Imran ne sweekar kar liya hai?"

"Haan...." Dusri taraf se uttar mila. "Mujhe khud bhi hairat hai."

"Usay control karna bahut kathin hoga sir." Julia ne kaha......aur dusri taraf se thahaake ki aawaz ki aawaz aayi. Phir kaha gaya........

"Juliana......kya ab tak tumhari aankhen band rahi hain? Kya tum ne nahin dekha ki main kis prakar us se kaam leta raha hun......jabki wo mere adheen bhi nahin tha."

"Maine dekha hai sir....aur isi liye main ye sochne par majboor hun ki aap ki adheenta sweekar kar lene me bhi koi na koi chaal hogi."

"Kya chaal ho sakti hai?"

"Wo kaafi samay se aap ko be-naqaab kar dene ke chakkar me hai."

"Bachcha hai.....jhak maarta hai....wo genius hai main maanta hun. Lekin aisa bhi nahin ki X2 ko be-naqaab kar sake. Btw.....iss kahani ko chhodo.....Metro Hotel ke room No 16 me ek aadmi thahra hua hai.....main uske baare me jaankari chaahta hun."

"All right sir..."

"Dusri baat......kya tum isay pasand karogi ki wahaan ka room No 17 apne liye haasil kar lo?"

"Meri pasand ka koi sawaal nahin sir, Jaisa aap kahenge kiya jaayega."

"Wo room khali hai. Achha main usay tumhaare liye book karwaa deta hun. Tum ek bag me apne kuchh aawashyak samaan rakho aur usay lekar iss prakar hotel pahucho ki tumhen koi iss shahar ka niwasi nahin samjhe."

"Ok sir.....main samajh gayi. Room book karaa dijiye. Lekin mujhe kiss samay wahaan pahuchna hai?"

"Kewal ek ghanta baad.......tum wahaan apna naam Mrs Brown register karaaogi. Residential address tum apni ichha se likhwa dena."

"Ok sir..."

Dusri taraf se phone kat gaya. Julia bag sambhaalne lagi. Wo nashad aur jaffery keliye dukhi bhi thi. Wo nakaara aur bure sahi lekin itne dinon tak unhone sath kaam kiya tha. Kuchh na kuchh lagaao ho hi gayi thi. Phir wo Imran ke baare me sochne lagi. Ab wo un sab ka jeena haraam kar dega.

Uske vichar se wo buddhimaan tha.....phurteela tha. Wo sab kuchh kar guzarta tha......jiski aasha kisi aadmi se nahin ki jaa sakti thi. Lekin phir bhi wo iss yogya nahin tha ki usay koi zimmedaari waala post diya jaa sake. Wo crack tha. Isliye zimmedari ke maamle me wo usay Nashad se bhi niche samajhti thi.

Bag thik karne me usay 20 minut se adhik nahin lage......shesh 40 minut usne Imran ke baare me sochne me bitaaye. Phir ek taxi karke Metro hotel ki taraf chal padi.

Wahaan pahuch kar usay pata chala ki ki uske liye room No.17 allotted hai. Usne ek hafte ka kiraaya pay kiya aur ek porter ke sath kamre me aa gayi.

Jiske baare me jaankari jamaa karni thi wo barabar ke kamre me hi tha. Julia ne uske baare me porter se puchh tachh shiru ki lekin kuchh iss dhang se jaise har vyakti apne padosiyon ke baare me jaankaari lena chaahta hai.

Porter ke anusar wo Spainy tha. Uska naam Don Frazer bataaya gaya tha. Pichhle 3 dinon se wahaan thahra hua tha......aur kewal raat ko hi baahar nikalta tha. Break-fast ya lunch keliye wo kabhi dining hall me nahin jaata tha. Dinner ke baad wo baahar jaataaur phir 3 ya 4 baje se pahle uski waapasi nahin hoti thi.

Julia bhi aaram se baithi rahi. Phir raat hote hi wo har aahat par chaunkne lagi. Lagbhag aath baje solah number waala Don Frazer baahar nikla aur room lock kar ke seedhiyon ki taraf badh gaya. Julia bhi baahar nikal aayi thi. Usay intezaar tha ki wo kam se kam aadhi seedhiyaan paar kar le. Kuchh hi der baad wo niche foot-path par uska pichha kar rahi thi.

Wo kuchh door tak paidal hi chalta raha phir ek taxi rukwaayi. Julia ne socha ye bura hua. Agar turant dusri taxi na mil saki to pichha karne ka kram yahin samaapt ho jaayega. Wo soch hi rahi thi ki vipareet disha se ek taxi aa hi gayi.

Pichha jaari raha. Lekin jab agli taxi shahar se nikal kar ek weeran sadak par hua to Julia ka dil dhadakne laga.

Wo usay pahli hi nazar me koi khatarnaak vyakti laga tha. Spainy to kya wo Bohenian bhi nahin lag raha tha. Uska rang roop usay kisi European desh ka naagrik saabit nahin karta tha. Lekin phir bhi wo apne iss vichar ke baare me sandeh me rahi. Kyoki aksar rang roop dhoka bhi de dete the.

Kuchh bhi ho usay pichha to jaari rakhna tha......kyoki ye X2 ka aadesh tha. Achanak ek jagah agli taxi ruk gayi. Julia ne apni taxi ke driver se kaha "Gaadi uss taxi se aage nikaal kar speed bahut kam kar do." Phir wo mud kar uss taxi ko dekhne lagi.

"Uski taxi ke driver ne na kewal raftaar kam kar di balki head lights aur back lights bhi bujha di.

"Tum bahut budhimaan aadmi ho..." Julia dhire se boli.

"Lekin wo mahsoos kar rahi thi ki taxi daayen taraf ki jhaadiyon me ghus padi hai.

"Yy.....ye kya kar rahe ho?" Julia bokhla kar boli.

"Kuchh nahin......aapko pichha karne ka tareeka sikha raha hun...."

Phir achanak Julia ne mahsoos kiya ki kisi ne uska vanity bag hath se khich liya.

"Ab aap bebas hain...." Driver ki aawaz sunaayi di...."Aap ki ek chhoti si galati bhi aapko nark me pahucha sakti hai."

Julia ke hath pair dheele par gaye. Thik usi samay usne kisi motorcycle ka shor suna. Lekin is se pahle ki wo chillaati ek hath mazbooti se uske muhh par jam gaya.

Motorcycle sameep se guzar gayi. Julia hil bhi nahin sakti thi.
Phir usne mahsoos kiya ki usay niche utaara ja raha hai.......usne sangharsh karni chaahi lekin sambhav na ho saka.

Ant me wo dil hi dil me X2 ko bura bhala kahne lagi jo aise abhiyaanon me kyon bhejta hai.

Julia hosh me thi aur achhi tarah dekh rahi thi. Do aadmi Usay utha kar sadak paar kar rahe the.......aur uske muhh me kapda thoons diya gaya tha aur hath uske apne niyantran me kar rakha tha.

Sadak paar kar ke wo baayen taraf ki jhaadiyon me ghuse aur chalte rahe.

Julia soch rahi thi ki iss naukari me kaisi kaisi durgat banti hai.......aur ye X2 usay behichak maut ke muhh me jhonkta rahta hai.

Wo lagbhag 10 minut tak chalte rahe......phir Julia ke pair zameen se tike. Usay niche utaar diya gaya tha aur ab wo andhere me baithi thi. Usay wahaan 3 mombattiyaan jalti dikhaayi din. Ye ghaas phus ka bada sa jhopada tha.

Yahaan 6 aadmi the......aur un me wo bhi maujood tha jiska pichha karti huyi wo yahaan tak aayi thi.

"Iske muhh se kapda nikaalo." Ye atyant bhadde shakal waala vyakti tha aur uske sharir par kuchh iss tarak ke kapde the ki agar Julia usay kahin aur dekhti to usay bhikhaari se adhik nahin samajhti.

Julia ke muhh se kapda nikaal liya gaya.

"Tum kon ho?" Julia se English me puchha gaya.

"Mm.....main Mrs Brown...." Julia haklaayi.

"Chalo ham maan lete hain ki tum Mrs Brown ho." Usi bad-surat aadmi ne kaha....."Lekin tum Don Frazer ka pichha kyon kar rahi thin?"

"Main.....pichha....? nahin to...." Julia ne bebasi se kaha.

"Ohho.....tumhen to jhoot bhi bolna nahin aata. Tumhen yahaan tak mera hi ek aadmi laaya hai...."

"Haan main Don Frazer ka pichha kar rahi thi..."

"kyon?"

"Kyonki......na jaane kyon main un me bahut aakarshan mahsoos kar rahi thi."

"Ohho.....ye to mere liye saubhaagya ki baat hai." Don Fraser muskuraaya.

"Haan bilkul.....mujhe Bohemia aur Spain ke logon se bahut lagaao mahsoos hota hai......wo sugandhon aur sangeet ki bhoomi hai. " Julia ne muskura kar kaha....."Isi liye main aksar spain ke sapne dekhti hun."

"thanks Mrs Brown......mere vichar se aap swiss hain..."

"Yes Mr Fraser.....jab mujhe pata chala ki mera padosi ek Spainy hai to phir main apne sapnon me doob gayi."

"Samay barbaad mat karo..." Bad-surat vyakti gurraaya......aur Julia ko ghoorne laga.

"Julia apne bhitar ki shaktiyon ko ikattha kar chuki thi.......aur wo nishchint thi ki wo aakhri saans tak unka mukaabla kar sakegi. Phir wo ye bhi soch rahi thi ki X2 uski taraf se gaafil nahin hoga.

"Tum ne Don Fraser ka pichha kyon kiya tha?" Bad-surat vyakti ne kade lahje me puchha.

"Haqeeqat maine kah di hai." Julia ne apne kandhon ko uchka kar kaha..."Tum vishwaas karo ya na karo."

"Ye bakwaas hai." Kuroop vyakti ne thande swar me kaha....."Insaan ka maans khrton keliye uttam khaad ke kaam aata hai."

"Koi nayi research hai kya?" Julia ne mazaaq udaane waale dhang se kaha.

"Ek bada sa gaddha khodo jaakar...." Usne apne aadmiyon ki taraf ghoom kar kaha......aur do aadmi jhopade se baahar chale gaye.

"Tum yahaan dafan kar di jaaogi aur kisi ko kaano-kaan khabar nahin hogi." Bad-surat aadmi ka swar bhayanak tha.

Julia ko apni reedh ki haddi me sansani mahsoos huyi......aur usne dil kada kar ke kaha...."Tum logon ko koi galat-fahmi huyi hai......main ek sadharan naagrik hun.....pichha karne ka uddeshya iske alawa aur kuchh nahin tha jo main bata chuki hun....aur ab soch rahi hun ki har samay sapnon ki duniya me rahna kitna khatarnaak hota hai."

"Isay zameen par gira kar jaanwar ki tarah iski gardan kaat daalo." badsurat aadmi ne apne aadmiyon me se ek ko sambodhit kar ke kaha.

"Thahro.....khuda ke waaste ruk jaao...." Julia bhaybheet andaaz me hath utha kar cheekhi...."Tum log vishwaas kyon nahin karte....Mr Don Fraser meri jaan bachaaiye..."

"Main kya kar sakta hun?" Don bola...."Aap khud hi sach bolne ki koshish kyon nahin kartin?"

"Main sach kah rahi hun...."

"Chalo jaldi karo...." Badsurat aadmi dahaada.

Lekin thik usi samay wo donon aadmi jhopade me prawesh kiye jo kuchh der pahle baahar gaye the.

"Gadha khoda jaa raha hai sir...." Unme se ek ne kaha.

"All right...." Badsurat aadmi ne kaha...."Isay bahut saawdhani se zabah karna hai......yahaan bhi ek gadha khod do taaki khoon us me dabaaya jaa sake."

Ek aadmi ek kone me ek chhoti si kudaal utha kar gaddha khodne laga. Un me se ek apne chhure ki dhaar dekh raha tha.......aur Julia ka ye haal tha ki uske sharir ka ek ek resha kaanpne laga tha. Usne badsurat aadmi ki taraf dekha......lekin uske chehre par chattaanon jaisi kathorta thi. Uski aankhen kuchh aisi hi thin ki Julia us se daya ki aasha nahin kar sakti thi.
"Sab se achha tareeka ye hai...." Badsurat vyakti Don Fraser se kah raha tha...."Ki un sab ko isi tarah ek ek kar ke khatam kar diya jaaye......ye puchhne ki zaroorat nahin hai ki ye log kya chaahte hain."

Julia ke hont sookh chuke the. Zubaan taalu se sat gayi thi. Kanth me kaante paida ho gaye the. Wo kuchh iss prakar ki thakawat mahsoos kar rahi thi jaise saikadon mile ki doori daudte huye paar ki ho.

Wo ye bhi samajh rahi thi ki wo log uske baare me kuchh bhi nahin jaante......aur iss prakar ki baaten kewal isliye ki jaa rahi hain ki wo sab kuchh ugal de.

"Madam....." Don Fraser ne usay sambodhit kiya......"Agar aap iss samay zabah kar di gayin to main jeewan bhar aapka maatam karta rahunga."

"To phir......mujhe bacha.....bacha lijiye...." Julia ne kisi kisi tarah kaha.

"Agar aap sach bolen to....ye asambhav bhi nahin hai."

"Ohh.....thahro...." Julia uss aadmi ki taraf hath utha kar cheekhi jo ek chamakdaar chhura ki dhaar par apne hath pherta hua uski taraf badhne laga tha.

"Ruk jaao..." Badsurat aadmi ne un donon ko sambodhit kiya jo gadha khod rahe the.

"Julia ne ek lambi saans li.....aur jhoot bolne keliye taiyaar ho gayi.

"Ek aise aadmi ne mujhe iss kaam ke liye taiyaar kiya tha jo lambe samay se mujhe black-mail kar raha hai. Wo Mr Brown......arthaat mere pati ka dost hai. Uske paas meri kuchh aise photographs hain jo meri zindagi barbaad kar sakte hain. Anyway uss black-mailer ne mera jeewan nark bana rakha hai."

"Kahti raho..." Badsoorat vyakti ne barf jaise thande swar me kaha.

"Usne mujhe apne paas bulaaya. Main uske ishaaron par nachne keliye majboor hun. Usne mujhe Metro ke room Number 17 me thaharne keliye kaha. Room ka reservation usne pahle se karwaa rakha tha."

"Phir usne majboor kiya ki main Mr Don Fraser ke baare me jaankari jama karun.....chaahe ye kaam jaise bhi ho. Iss se pahle bhi mujh se bahut se gande kism ke kaam le chuka hai."

"Lekin wo Don Fraser ke baare me kya jaanna chaahta tha?"

"Kaash mujhe pata hota ki iss harkat ka maksad kya tha.....aap log vishwaas karen ki main ek majboor aurat hun....aagar aap log uss kameene se mera pichha chudwaa saken to main jeewan bhar duaayen dungi."

"Wo kon hai.....aur kahaan rahta hai?" Badsurat aadmi ne puchha.

Julia ne bade aaram se Imran ka naam aur pata bata diya.

"Pata note karo..." badsurat aadmi ne apne ek sathi se kaha.....aur wo jeb se note-book nikaal kar likhne laga.

"Tumne abhi tak Don Frazer ke baare me kya jaankari ikattha ki hain?"

"Abhi kuchh bhi nahin. Aaj hi to main aayi hun...." Julia boli. "Iss samay usne mujhe phone se suchit kiya tha ki agar Don Fraser kahin jaaye to mujhe uska pichha karna hoga."

"Tum ne abhi tak us black-mailer ko kuchh nahin bataaya?"

"Kuchh bhi nahin......jab main kuchh pata hi nahin kar saki to usay kya bataati."

Kuchh der keliye sannaata chha gaya. Don Fraser aur badsoorat aadmi arthpurn dhang se ek dusre ko dekh rahe the. Julia ne phir kaha..."Ab aap bataaiye ki isme meri kya galati hai. Main apna raaz chhupaane keliye sab kuchh kar sakti hun. Shayad uss manhus blackmailer ne mujhe achhi tarah samajh liya hai. Wo jaanta hai ki main badnaami se bachne keliye sab kuchh kar jaaungi."

"Wo kab se tumhen black-mail kar raha hai?"

"2 saal se." Julia ne uttar diya.

"Aur tum ne aaj tak uske viruddh koi karrawaayi nahin ki?"

"Kaise karti......wo mujhe daraata dhamkaata rahta hai."

"Ok........" Badsoorat aadmi ne lambi saans lekar kaha.

"Jab tak wo blackmailer hamaare hath na aa jaaye ham tumhen nahin chhodenge."

"Ye to maut se bhi bura hai.....kyonki maine apne pati Mr Brown se kewal 3 dinon keliye kaha tha. Chautha din mere ghar ki tabaahi ka din hoga. Isliye mere haal par daya kijiye."

"Ho sakta hai ham kal hi tumhen chhod den. Lekin us black mailer ko pakde bina ham aisa nahin kar sakenge."

Julia chup ho gayi. Waise usay khushi thi ki wo unhen jhaansa dene me kaamyab ho gayi. Lekin wo dil hi dil me hans rahi thi ki usne unhen Imran ka naam aur pata bataya tha.

Uske vichar se Imran ke farishton ko bhi iski jaankari nahin hogi ki Juliana Fitzwater kya sab karti phir rahi hai. Aur phir usay waise bhi vishwaas tha ki Imran kisi na kisi prakar in logon se nibat hi lega.

"Tum idhar kahdi ho jaao." Badsoorat aadmi ne ek taraf ishara kiya. Julia ne chup chaap paalan kiya. Phir badsurat vyakti ne kisi videshi bhasha me apne ek sathi se kuchh kaha aur dusre hi pal uske thaile se ek camera nikal aaya.

"Sidhi khadi raho.....aur camre ki taraf dekho." Badsurat vyakti ne Julia se kaha.

Dusra aadmi camera sidha kiye khada tha. Flash ka ek jhamaaka hua aur tasweer le li gayi.

"Baith jaao..." Badsurat aadmi ne ek taraf rakhe ghas aur puwaal ki taraf ishara kar ke kaha. "Ham abhi pata kiye lete hain ki tumhare bayaan me kitni sachaayi hai."

"Kar lijiye pata." Julia ne laaparwahi se kaha.

Achanak ek aadmi bola..."Mera khayal hai ki main iss naam ke aadmi ko jaanta hun.....magar wo police keliye kaam karta hai."

"Tumhen vishwaas hai?

"Jee haan.....mujhe vishwaas hai. Wo police keliye kaam karta hai.....Imran.....ek paagal sa aadmi hai. Aur sath hi khatarnaak bhi hai. Aap nahin kah sakte ki wo kab kya kar baithega."

"Kyon?" Badsoorat aadmi Julia ko ghoorne laga.

"Bhala main kya bata sakti hun? Main to usay ek black mailer ki haisiyat se jaanti hun."

"Ye thik kah rahi hai dosto.....!!" Achanak jhopadi ke darwaaze ki taraf se aawaz aayi.....aur sab ek sath uchhal pade. Imran darwaaze me khada palken jhapka raha tha. Uske daayen hath me revolver tha.
"Yahi hai..." Us aadmi ke muhh se anayaas nikla jisne kaha tha ki wo Imran ko jaanta hai.

"Haan.....main hi hun...tum sab apne hath upar utha lo." Sab ne apne hath utha diye. Lekin badsoorat aadmi jyon ka tyon khada raha. Uski aankhen surkh (red) ho gayi thin......aur aisa lag raha tha jaise wo Imran ke hath me dabe huye revolver ko dekh hi nahin raha ho.

"Tum bhi apne hath uthaao.....aahaa....shayad tum mujhe akela samajhte ho. Thoda aankhe khol kar apne chaaron taraf dekho."

"Badsoorat aadmi ne idhar udhar dekha. Jhopade ki phoos ki deewaron par kayi revolvers ki naalen dikhaayi de rahi thin.

"Dusri taraf mere atyant wafadaar sathi maujood hain......tum me se agar kisi ne thoda sa bhi hilne ki koshish kiya to wo apne pairon par khade nahin rah paayega..."

badsoorat aadmi ne bhi apne hath utha diye.

"Mrs. Black.....arrrrrrr....Brown tum in sab ki taaiyaan (Ties) kholo aur inke hath pith par baandh do....jaldi karo warna tumhaara bhawishya andhkaarmay kar dunga."

Julia chup-chaap aage badhi aur ek ek ke hath baandhne lagi. Jab wo paanch aadmiyon ko baandh chuki tab haanfti huyi boli.....

"Isay kaise baandhun......iske gale me to tie nahin hai...." Usne badsoorat aadmi ki taraf ishaara kiya.

"Pahle inki jebon se revolvers nikaal lo....."

Julia ne unki jeben tatolni shuru kar di.....kewal do aadmiyon ke paas se revolver nikle.....shesh bina hathiyaar ke the.

Ek ke paas chhura tha........jo wo pahle hi nikaal chuka tha.

"Ohh.....tum wo thailaa to bhool hi gayin jisme camera tha...."

Thaila zamin par pada hua tha......Julia uski talashi lene lagi.

"Isme camera hai aur kuchh papers bhi......aur silk ke doriyon ka ek bundle bhi...."

"Waahh.....tab to tum inke pair bhi baandh sakti ho......." Imran bachchon ki tarah khush ho kar bola. "Ab ye kaam shuru kar do..."

Julia unhen dhakel dhakel kar zameen par giraane lagi.

"Dosto....!!" Imran ne unhen sambodhit kiya...."Bhalaai isi me hai ki chup-chaap apne hath pair bandhwaa lo. Main nisandeh police keliye bhi kaam karta hun. Lekin ye police ka kaam nahin hai.......tumhaara maalik achhi tarah samajhta hai ki ye kiska kaam ho sakta hai......."

"Tum kya chaahte ho?" Badsoorat aadmi ne bharrayi huyi aawaz me kaha.

"Kuchh nahin......tum jaise nimn (nichle darje ke) aadmi se main kya baat karun? Ye to tumhaara maalik hi puchhega ki main kya chaahta hun......tab main usko bataaunga ki mujhe ek darzan shuturmurg ke ande chaahiye...."

"Mr Don Frazer please......" Julia us se kah rahi thi...."Agar aap khud hi let jaayen to behtar hai.....kyonki abhi tak main aapka bahut sammaan karti rahi hun."

Don Frazer khamoshi se baith gaya aur Julia uske pair baandhne lagi. Wo sab hi un revolvers ko bhaybheet nigaahon se dekh rahe the jo phoos ki deewaron se nikle huye the. Julia un sabon ko baandhne ke baad phir Imran ki taraf mudi.

"Ab inki khaatirdaari bhi honi chaahiye." Imran ne badsurat aadmi ki taraf ishaara kiya......lekin jaise Julia uske sameep pahuchi.....usne usay pakad kar Imran ke revolver ke saamne kar diya.

"Maar do goli....." Wo dahaada. "Ye sab bakwaas hai.......aur jhopade ke baahar koi bhi nahin hai..."

"Aaan....haann...." Imran bade aaram se bola. "Baahar koi bhi nahin hai......aur ye revolver bhi khaali hain. Inhen bahut saawdhani se deewaron se baahar nikaala gaya tha......itni satarkataa se ki tum sab ko khabar bhi nahin huyi......lekin mere 20 minut kharch huye the."

"Revolver zameen par phenk do.....warna iska gala ghont doonga."

"Nahin zameen par kyon phekun....main isay bahut saavadhani se apni jeb me rakhunga..." Jaise hi Imran ne revolver jeb me rakha......badsoorat aadmi Julia ko ek taraf dhakel kar Imran par toot pada. Imran usay apne hathon par rok kar barbadaaya...."Waahh dost......iska matlab tum isi ki pratiksha me the...."

Lekin Imran usay koi awasar nahin de raha tha. Wo uske sharir ke kisi hisse ko pakad nahin saka tha.

Wo log jo zameen par bandhe pade the......uthne keliye prayaas karne lage.....shayad unhen iss baat par adhik gussa aa raha tha ki wo ab tak deewaron waale revolvers ke sambandh me dhoke me pade huye the.

"Julia.....unhen dekhna..." Imran ne kaha.....aur badsoorat aadmi par pil pada. Lekin wo bhi kaafi jaandar lagta tha. Shaktishali hi nahin phurteela bhi tha. Na jaane kis tarah wo chaaku uske hath lag gaya......jo der se zameen par pada hua mombattiyon ki raushni me chamak raha tha.

Julia ka dil dhadakne laga tha kyonki Imran usay chhod kar alag hat gaya tha.......wo us par hamla karne keliye murge ki tarah par tol raha tha. Chaaku uski mutthi me daba hua tha. Julia ne mahsoos kiya ki Imran kuchh dara hua sa dikhayi de raha hai.

Wo soch hi rahi thi ki ye murkh apni jeb se revolver kyon nahin nikaal leta.

Achanak badsoorat vyakti ne Imran par chhalaang lagaayi aur pet ke bal dhap se zameen par gira. Phir iske pahle ki wo apni jagah se hil bhi paata......Imran us par khada usay buri tarah rond raha tha. Ye sap itni jaldi hua ki badsoorat aadmi cheekhne aur karaahne ke alaawa kuchh kar nahin saka.

Imran us par se utarta hua bola...."Phir koshish karo..." Lekin wo kisi aise saanp ki tarah apna shareer zameen par ainthta raha jiski koi haddi jod se alag ho gayi ho.

Julia ne Imran ki taraf dekha......aur ek thandi si lahar uski reedh ki haddiyon me daud gayi. Ye uss murkh ka chehra to nahin tha jise Julia baat baat par bewakoof banaane ki koshish karti thi. Murkh Imran aur iss Imran me zameen-aasman ka antar tha.

"Ab cheekhna bahd karo warna gardan kandhon se khinch kar baahar phek doonga." Wo apne shikaar ko ghoorta hua gurraaya. Dusre kaidiyon ko saanp soongh gayi thi. Wo bilkul shaant pade huye the.

Badsoorat aadmi zameen par pada hath pair phenkta raha...lekin ab uski aawaz dhire dhire kamzor hoti jaa rahi thi.

"Kk.....kya tum sach-much akele ho...?" Pahli baar Julia Imran ko sambodhit karne me haklaayi thi. Usne dhimi aawaz me Imran se puchha.....aur Imran iss tarah chaunk pada jaise ab tak khud ko akela samjh raha ho.

"Kya.....haamm....main akela hun..."sne bokhlaa kar kaha aur achanak phir se uske chahre ki sadabahaar murkhta uske chehre par chha gayi.

"Inka kya hoga?" Julia ne bandhakon ki taraf ishaara kiya.

"Tum inki parwarish karna.......main adhik se adhik paise kamaane ka prayatn karunga...." Imran ne gambhirta se kaha. "Bass ab tum yahin thahro.....main ek ek karke inhen gaadi tak pahuchaata hun."

Lagbhag aadhe ghante baad ek badi si car sunsaan sadak par farraate bhar rahi thi......jisme 6 qaidi iss tarah thoonse gaye the jaise kanch ke jar me achaar daala gaya ho. Imran drive kar raha tha aur Julia uske barabar baithi huyi thi.

"Lekin tum wahaan pahuche kis tarah?" Julia ne puchha.

"Bass iss tarah ki apna motorcycle bhi yahin chhode jaa raha hun."

"Ohh.....mujhe yaad aa raha hai......shayd maine kisi motorcycle sawaar ko aage nikalte dekha tha."

"Zaroor dekhi hogi."

"Kya X2 se tumhen nirdesh mila tha?"

"Kya bataaun....." Imran dukhi swar me bola..."Main ek bahut bade janjaal me phans gaya hun."

"Kaisa janjaal?"

"Yahi X2......ye sach hai ki mujhe uski tanik bhi parwaah nahin hai.....magar kya karun. Aajkal meri aarthik sthiti Confucius ke anusaar bahut patli hai. Magar suno.......main uss tarah nahin rah sakta jis tarah tum log rahte ho. Mere sath aniwaarya roop se ek do naukar rahenge...."

"X2 se iski anumati nahin mil sakegi..."

"Na mile........kya main uss se kamzor hun?"

"Ok......main dekhungi."

"Awashya dekhna aur jo kuchh dikhaayi de us se mujhe bhi suchit karna."

Julia chup ho gayi. Pichhli seat par badsoorat aadmi halke halke karaah raha tha. Shayad ab wo hosh me aa raha tha.
Raat ke 3 baj chuke the lekin Juliana jaag rahi thi......aur abhi tak Metro hotel ke usi kamre me uska thikaana tha. Wo Imran ke baare me soch rahi thi. Usne usay Metro hotel me utaar diya tha aur qaidiyon ko liye huye Danish manzil ki taraf chala gaya tha.

Julia soch rahi thi ki kahin usay bhi Imran ki adhintaa me na rahna pade. Abhi tak to X2 ke baad khud Julia hi ka number tha.......secret service ke dusre members tak X2 ke nirdesh usi ke dwaara pahucha karte the. Isliye uska khayaal tha ki usay sab par seniority praapt hai. Wo bahut der tak isi samassya par manthan karti rahi. Phir sone ka nishchay kar hi rahi thi ki phone ki ghanti baji.

"Hello." Usne receiver utha kar kaha,

"Room No.17.....Mrs Brown please...." Hotel ke operator ki aawaz aayi.

"Mrs Brown speaking..."

"Aap ki call hai..."

"Connect please..."

Kuchh palon baad X2 ki aawaz aayi...."Hello Mrs Brown...."

"Ohh....yes.....how do you do?"

"Tum thik se ho Mrs Brown?"

"Yes please...."

"Mrs Brown......cattel tea...."

"Ok..." Julia ne phone kaat diya. Cattel tea ka matlab tha ki usay telephone ki bajaaye transmeter se baat karni chaahiye. Usne bag se apna traveling Transmeter nikaala aur saawdhaani-wash bathroom me chali gayi.

"Julia...." Transmeter se aawas aayi.

"Yes sir..."

"Apne aadmiyon se kaho Jafferson street ki Seema Lodge par raid karen. Us building me paaye jaane waale kutton ko bhi na chhoda jaaye. Agar wahaan ke niwaasiyon me se ek aadmi bhi bach kar nikal gaya to bahut kathorta se jawaab loonga."

"Ok.....sir. Lekin kya Imran ko bhi phone kiya jaaye?"

"Phone...? Kya bakti ho? Tum wahaan.....us hotel se phone karogi? Nahin kisi public booth se Tanwir se sampark karo......wo sab ko khabar kar dega."

"All right sir...."

"Iske baad tum wahin hotel me hi thahrogi.....kya tum so rahi thin?"

"No sir......sone ka soch rahi thi..."

"Bass......iss kaam ke baad so jaana....over & all." Baat samaapt ho gayi.

Kuchh der baad Julia baahar jaane ki taiyari kar rahi thi. Clock ne 4 bajaaye.......aur usne socha ab wo kisi rok tok ke bina baahar jaa sakegi. Chaar baje se pahle....baahar jaane keliye usay register me likhna padta ki wo kahaan aur kyon baahar jaana chaahti hai. Wo baahar nikli aur chauraahe ki taraf chal padi. Chauraahe ke sameep hi phone booth tha.

Booth me pahuch kar usne darwaaza bhitar se band kiya.....phir hook se receiver nikaal kar kaan se lagaya. Dial tone sahi tha.

Sab kuchh hua lekin wo nahin ho saka jiske liye wo yahaan tak aayi thi. Ek ke baad ek usne sabhi members ke number dial kar liye lekin kahin se bhi reply nahin mila. Ant me Inran se sampark karna chaaha lekin wahaan bhi sannaata hi tha. Wo jhunjlaa kar baahar nikal aayi. X2 ne bahut zor dekar kaha tha ki uss building par raid kitna zaroori hai.

Lekin jab koi bhi nahin mil saka tab wo kya karti. Usne socha ki ab jaldi se jaldi X2 ko iski suchna milni chaahiye.

Wo foot-path se niche utri hi thi ki koi thandi si chiz uski gardan se aa lagi........aur wo anayaas uchhal padi.

"Chup chaap chalti raho...." Kisi ne dhire se kaha..."Warna ye revolver hai.....ice-cream nahin."

Julia sannaate me aa gayi.....lekin chalti rahi. Iske alaawa koi chaara bhi nahin tha. Ant me wo ek car ke paas pahuchi aur us se usme baithne keliye kaha gaya.

"Pichhli seat par..." Agyaat vyakti ne kaha.

Julia ne chup chaap paalan kiya. Lekin vaastav me wo iss achanak aayi vipatti se bokhlaa gayi thi. Agyaat vyakti bhi uske paas jaa baitha aur car chal padi.

"Iska maksad kya hai?" Kuchh der baad Julia ne puchha.

"Agar mujhe pata hota to main sure bata deta madam.....'' Us aadmi ka sawr atyant shisht (Gentle) tha.

Julia hairaan rah gayi. Wo ye bhi soch rahi thi ki aakhir X2 ne kis prakar ka khel shuru kar rkha hai.

Car ki khidkiyon me kaale parde pade huye the. Isliye raaston ka andaaz karna asambhav tha. Julia bhaagya bharose baithi rahi. Waise bhi usay vishwaas tha ki X2 hazaar aankhon se uski nigraani kar raha hoga. Isi raat ki ek ghatnaa is baat ka pramaan tha ki antim niraasha ki haalat me bhi akasmaat uske dwaara jaan bachaayi gayi. Lekin wo log bhi kaabu me aa gaye the jo shayad apni dhamkiyon ko sach bana dene ki shakti bhi rakhte the.

Julia apne dimaag ko shaant rakhne keliye isi aaj waali ghatna ke baare me sochne lagi. Shayad usay Metro hotel bhejne ka maksad Don Frazer ki nigraani nahin tha......balki X2 un logon ko galat-fahmi me daal dena chaahta tha.

Matlab usne un par ye baat jata di thi ki Don Frazer ki nigraani ki jaa rahi hai. Unhone ye jaanne keliye ki iss nigraani ke pichhe kon hai.....Julia ko pakda.......aur phir wo khud hi uske jaal me phans gaye. Waise iska matlab ye bhi tha ki Don Fraser koi important vyakti hai......isi ke kaaran khud usi ke sathi uski nigraani karte rahe the. Agar ye baat na hoti to Don Frazer ke farishton ko bhi Julia ke hone ka pata nahin chalta.

Phir usay Imran yaad aaya jisne apni behtareen yogyataaon ka pradarshan kiya tha. Kitni shandar chaal thi. Agar un logon ko shuru me sandeh bhi ho jaata ki Imran akela haito wo uski botiyaan noch daalte.

Phir ek dusra point uske dimaag me ubhra. Aakhir Imran ko itne revolver kahaan se mil gaye the? Agar wo unhen sath laaya tha to phir yahi samajhna chaahiye ki X2 ko ye bhi pata tha ki wo usi jhopadi me le jaayi jaayegi. Lekin agar usay ye pata tha to Julia ko shikaar ka chaara kyon banaaya gaya? Magar nahin. Ye bhi to sambhav hai ki usay kewal jagah ke baare me pata tha.......lekin ye nahin pata raha hoga ki us giroh me kitne log hain aur kis prakar ke log hain.

Ab ye bhi sambhav hai ki is baar phir X2 ne uss giroh ke bache khuche aadmiyon ke liye bhi kisi prakar ka jaal phailaaya hoga. Julia yahi sab sochti rahi aur unghti rahi......aur phir usay thik usi samay hosh aaya jab car ek jhatke ke sath ruk gayi.

Pichhla gate khula aur usay utarne ko kaha gaya. Julia chup chap utar aayi.

Wo kisi building ke compound me thi.......jiske chaaron taraf unchi unchi boundery thi.

Julia ke daayen baayen do aadmi chal rahe the......lekin unke andaaz naye the. Ab wo apni gardan par lohe ki thandak bhi mahsoos nahin kar rahi thi.

Wo uss imaarat me prawesh kiye.......aur kayi raahdariyon aur kamron se guzarte huye ek hall me aaye. Lekin Julia ko un donon aadmiyon ke alaawa aur koi dikhayi nahin diya.

"Tashreef rakhiye madam...." Ek aadmi ne ek easy chair ki taraf ishara kar ke kaha...."Aap thak gayi hongi."

"Aap log mujhe yahan kyon laaye hain?" Julia ne puchha.

"Bas aise hi..." Dusra aadmi muskuraaya. "Kuchh der mil baithenge........aap kon si sharab pasand karti hain?"

"Mujhe har kism ki sharab na-pasand hai.....magar....."

"Ohh.....ye bahut ajeeb baat hai...." Pahle ne kaha.

"Nahin kitni hi auraten sharab nahin peetin..." Dusra bola.

"Main ye puchh rahi thi ki mujhe yahaan kyon laaya gaya hai?"

"Aap pareshan na hon......ham donon shareef aadmi hain...."

"Aakhir matlab kya hai?" Julia jhunjlaa gayi.

"Koi vishesh baat nahin hai.....agar aapko nind aa rahi ho to aap behichak so jaayen."

"Main cheekhna shuru kar doongi."

"Ham kisi sabhya aur sammaanit mahila se aisi aasha nahin karte."

"Ajeeb aadmi hain aap log..."

Donon khamosh rahe. Wo atyant gambheer swabhav ke log lagte the......aur shareef bhi. Julia chakit huye bina nahin rah saki.

Lekin ye rahassya jaldi hi khul gaya. Ab usay pata chala ki wo yahaan kyon laayi gayi thi. Kyonki hall me chhe(6) vyaktiyon ki ek chhoti si kataar prawesh huyi jiske pichhe do aadmi tommy guns liye chal rahe the. Un 6 aadmiyon ne apne hath upar utha rakhe the........aur Imran sab se aage tha.

Julia ek thandi saans lekar rah gayi. Kuchh der pahle X2 jo jaal un logon ke liye bichhaaya tha ab uske saathi usi tarah ke ek dusre jaal me phanse huye the. Halaaki dusri baar bhi X2 ko yahi ummeed rahi hogi ki uska bichhaya hua jaal hi kaamyab rahega.
Un do aadmiyon me se ek ne thahaaka lagaaya.......jo Julia ko yahaan laaye the.

"Kyon doston.....iss baar khud phans gaye naa?"

"Aye......zara zubaan sambhaal kar...." Imran aankhen nacha kar bola. "Tum log khatarnak kism ke uthaayigire lagte ho......pahle meri wife ko pakad laaye aur ab hamen..."

"Toap ki garaj bhi iss room se baahar nahin jaa paayegi." wo aadmi bola.

Imran ne chaaron taraf uchat'ti huyi nazar daali aur Julia se puchha...."Darling......tumhen koi takleef to nahin huyi? Tum inki chinta mat karo.....ye tumhaara baal bhi baaka nahin kar sakenge."

"Tum logon ke pichhe kon hai?" Ek aphartaa ne Imran se puchha.

"Deewar..." Imran pichhe mud kar phir sidha hokar bola.

"Achhi baat hai.....phir marne keliye taiyar ho jaao. Hamaare 6 aadmiyon ke tum saat bure nahin ho....lekin mujhe iss nanhin munni sundar si gudiyaa par dayaa aati hai..."

"Aye....khabardaar jo tum ne meri wife ke husn ki tareef ki to mujh se buraa koi na hoga. Tum usay phuslaana chaahte ho."

Uss aadmi ne un donon ko ishaara kiya jinke hathon me tommy guns the. Wo saamne aa gaye aur unke guns ke muhh Imran aur uske sathiyon ki taraf ho gaye.

"Thahro..." Imran hath utha kar bola...."Ye sazaa kis kaaran se di jaa rahi hai? Pahle tumhaare sathi meri wife ko pakad kar le gaye......unhen samjha bujhaa kar manaaya......to ab tum log le ude. Agar ye tumhen itni hi pasand hai to main divorce ke liye taiyaar hun.....tum vidhiwat uss se shadi kar lo.......phulo phalo......aur mujhe bhi dekh kar khushi hogi."

Tabhi hall ke ek deewar me lagi call bell baj uthi. Wo sab buri tarah chaunke. Lekin iske pahle ki tommy guns waale dubaara unki taraf dhyaan dete Safdar aur Imran ne un par chalaange laga din.

"Tad....tad....tad...." Anginat goliyaan chhat se takraayi. Imran tommy gun chheen chuka tha. Safdar abhi tak dusre aadmi se liptaa hua tha.

"Bass......khel khatam. Apne hath upar utha lo.....aur tum Sargent Nomani......dekho baahar kon hai.....leutinent Chauhan tum bhi jaao." Wo donon chale gaye......itni der me safdar bhi dusre aadmi se Tommy gun chhin chuka tha.

"In chaaron ko bandh lo..." Imran gurraya..."Safdar tum bade shandar rahe.....bahut achhe....great."

Un charon ko hathkadiyaan laga di gayin......aur kuchh der baad Chauhan aur Nomani ek duble patle madiyal se aadmi ko pakde huye andar aaye. Qaidiyon me se ek usko dekh kar dahaada....

"O....suwar ke bachche......ghanti kyon bajaayi thi?"

Lekin suwar ka bachcha kewal haanfta raha.

**********************
***************

Julia hotel se apne flat me aa gayi thi. Wo subah das baje bed par jo giri to chaar baje shaam se pahle uski aankhen na khul sakin. Pichhli raat ki ghatnaayen usay sapne ki tarah yaad aa rahi thin......aur ab aisa lag raha tha jaise usay unki sachaayi par sandeh ho. Mastisk par iss prakar ke prabhav mahsoos ho rahe the jo kisi bhayanak sapne ke parinaam-swaroop hote hain.

Itna so chukne ke baad bhi uski tabiyat kuchh giri giri si thi. Aath baje phone ki ghanti baji.......aur Julia sar se pair tak kaanp gayi. Pichhli raat ke anubhav ne uske nuvous par achha prabhav nahin daala tha. Usne socha ki ye X2 ka hi phone hoga aur aaj raat phir.......... :

Anyway.....usne kaanpte huye hath se receiver uthaya.......aur dusri taraf se X2 ki chir parichit bharraayi huyi aawaz aayi......

"So chuki?"

"Y....yes sir....main ab jaag rahi hun..."

"Pichhli raat ke anubhav kaise rahe?"

"Bhayanak aur aur asambhavit...."

Dusri taraf se halki hansi ki aawaz aayi aur kaha gaya....."Imran bahut achha jaa raha hai Juli.....na to abhi tak wo mujh se uljha hai aur na uske kaaran koi kaam bigda hai. Jhopade waali ghatna me to usne kamaal hi kar diya. Wo akela bhi darzanon par bhaari hai. Aisi hi soojh boojh rakhne waale log mujhe pasand hain......aur haan......ye safdar sayeed bhi kaam ka ladka hai. Us se itne achhe performance ki aasha nahin thi. Aur ye tumhaare militery ke retired officers to ekdam nakaara saabit ho rahe hain. Main un sab ko chhaant doonga."

"Mera khayal hai ki ab aap un sab ko Imran ke dwaara hi govern karenge."

"Nahin.....tumhari haisiyat apni jagah sthaapit hai. Imran ko koi zimmedaari nahin saunp sakta......kyonki wo iss layaq hi nahin hai."

Julia ne aaram ka saans liya. aur phir boli...."Lekin ye kahani meri samajh me nahin aayi..."
"Ab ye kahani bahut lambi ho gayi hai Juli..." Dusri taraf se awaaz aayi. "Aur hamen jaldi hi uski remady karna padega......ho sakta hai hamen iske liye safar bhi karna pade. Ye log ek pashchimi desh ke agent lagte hain. Thaile se mile papers se pata chalta hai ki unka kendra swatantra seemawarti chhetra Shukraal hai. Lekin ye Shukraal ki itihaas me pahli ghtna hai. Iss se pahle hamen uss chhetra se kabhi koi shikaayat nahin rahi."

"Wo to ek khatanaak ilaaka hai sir...." Julia ne kaha.

"Haan....lekin apni seemaon ke bhitar. Padosi deshon se wo kewal maweshiyon ka vyapaar karte hain.......aur isi par unka jeevan basar hota hai."

"Kya wo hamaare desh ke viruddh kisi saazish me bhaag le rahe hain....?"

"Nishchit...........unke paas se jo kaagazaat baraamad huye hain un se yahi anumaan lagta hai. Iss samay unka uddeshya aur yojna ye tha ki ek pashchimi desh se hamaara sambandh kharab ho jaaye. Isi par wo kaam kar rahe the. Aur wo Spainy jo Metro me thahra tha vastav me Shukraal ka hi naagarik hai. Iske alawa abhi tak aur jitne bhi giraftaar ho sake hain.....sabhi desi hi hain."

"Uss kathit Spainy se aap ne bahut kuchh pata kiya hoga?"

"Kuchh bhi nahin. Usne apne hont si liye hain...."

"To phir ham is yaatra par kab niklenge?"

"main abhi iss baare me vichaar kar raha hun. Isme kayi kathinaaiyaan hain. Lekin ye bahut aawashyak bhi hai. Agar Shukraal iss prakar ki saazishon ka kendra banta raha to hamen har samay khatron ka saamna karna padega."

"Yes sir....ye safar nishchit hi bahut kathin hoga."

""kathin se bhi kuchh adhik samjho. Anyway.....iske baare me to kuchh sochna hi nahin chaahiye....kyon ki safar to har haal me karna hi hoga. Asli samassya ye hai ki Shukraal me prawesh ka upaaye kya hoga."

"Kyon? Kya isme bhi koi kathinaayi hai?"

"Baat ye hai ki wahaan ajnabi log aasani se pahchan liye jaate hain...."

"Make-up...?"

"Aqal ka prayog karo.....kya tum Shukraali bhasha bol sakti ho?"

"No sir."

"Phir make-up kis kaam ka?.....kya goongon ki ek poori team wahaan koi basti basaane jaayegi."

"Tab to nishchit badi samassya hai sir..."

"Tumhaare sathiyon me se kewal 2 aadmi achhi tarah Shukraali bol aur samajh sakte hai......Imran aur Safdar Sayeed...."

"Ohho.....matlab staff me recent changing isi kaaran se hui hai..."

"Haann....yahi samajh lo."

"To phir iska matlab ye hai ki aapko iss saazish ka pata pahle ho chuka tha?"

"Yahi baat hai. Bahut din huye kaanon me Shukraal ke baare me kuchh bhanak padi thi. Phir jab Don Fraser par nazar padi tab mujh ko chaunkna pada. Wo Spainy awashya bol sakta hai......lekin Spain ka nagrik nahin ho sakta. Uske chehre ki banawat aur rang roop.....Shukraaliyon jaise hain.''

"To kya aapke hisaab se poora giroh giraftaar ho chuka hai...?"

"Kisi had tak ye bhi samjha jaa sakta hai. Vartamaan me yahaan sakriye yahi log the. Lekin pakke taur par kah paana sambhav nahin. Haan agar Don Frazer ke muhh khul jaate tab shayad iss baat ka satyaapan ho sakta. Achha ab chhodo iss kahani ko. Iss baare me koi faisala karne ke baad tumhen suchit kar doonga. Abhi tum safdar ko phone kar do ki wo Imran se mil le..."

"Ok sir...."

**********************
**********

Imran ek easy chair me baitha ungh raha tha. Lekin nishchit nahin kaha jaa sakta ki wo ungh hi raha tha. Sabhav hai iss samay wo aankhen band kar ke kis kis duniya ki sair kar raha ho. Kyonki uske prakat roop ko dekh kar uske baare me anumaan laga lena koi hansi khel nahin tha.

Achanak wo call-bell ki aawaz par chaunk pada. Darwaaza bhitar se bolt nahin tha. Usne bharaayi huyi aawaz me kaha......."Aa jaao..."

Darwaaza khula aur safdar andar aaya. Imran usay iss tarah aankhen phaad phaad kar dekh raha tha jaise pahli baar ussi ko dekha ho.

"Maaf kijiyega......maine aap ko pahchaana nahin..."Usne aise andaaz me kaha jaise apni memory par zor daal raha ho.

"Aray..." Wo muskura kar bola..."Main Safdar sayeed hun..."

"haat....teri.....tauba tauba.....main Abdul Waheed samjha tha.......tashrif rakhiye...tashrif rakhiye....shayad hamlog pichhle saal ghodon aur maveshiyon ke mele me mile the...."
"Arre bhai sahab.......abhi pichhli hi raat ki baat hai ki ham dono ek campaign me shaamil the...."

"Nahiiiiinnnn....!!!" Imran ne hairat se aankhen phaadte huye kaha. Phir Safdar Sayeed ki taraf dekh kar bola.

"Aaha....thik.....mujhe bhi kuchh aisa hi lag raha hai......jaise main aapko bahut qareeb se jaanta hun......"

"No.....Imran sahab..." Safdar hans kar sar hilaata hua bola. "Main iss chakkar me nahin aa sakta.....jis ne aapko pichhli raat un logon ke mukaable par na dekha hoga......wo aapko nishchit roop se koi bhola bhaala bachcha samajh sakta hai."

"Ohh....my God....ab yaad aaya. Pichhli raat ham donon Grand me ping pong khel rahe the."

"Anyway.....main aap ki smaran shakti ko chunauti dene ki saahas nahin kar sakta. Iss samay main X2 ke aadesh par yahaan aaya hun."

"Ohh......achha achha....X2.....ye ek nayi beemari haijisne aaj kal mujhe aa dabocha hai. Kahiye kya baat hai?"

"Pata ye chala tha ki baat bhi aap hi se pata chalegi....."

"Arrrrr.....thahariye.....dekhiye main apni table diary dekhne ke baad hi kuchh kah sakunga. Mujhe vastav me bhool jaane ka rog hai.......iss kaaran prati din ke kaam ek din pahle hi note kar leta hun...."

Wo uth kar writing table par aaya......aur table diary utha kar panne palatne laga. Phir ek page par nazar daalte huye badbadaaya.

"Gobhi....tamatar....aaloo. Machhli. Motten chopps....haayenn.....ye kyaa? O....teri....ye to lunch items the. Lunch bahut important hota hai.......Mr Fatdar....."

"Safdar..........." Safdar jaldi se bola.

"Ohh....maaf kijiyega Mr safdar.....maine parson hi aap se niwedan kiya tha ki mujhe bhool jaane ka rog hai."

"Lekin ye to aap ne abhi kaha tha."

"Ho sakta hai.....lekin mujhe yaad aa raha hai parson kaha tha. Khair iss se koi antar nahin padta............ya padta hai?"

"Pata nahin...." Safdar hansne laga. "Aap bahut rochak vyakti hain Imran sahab."

"Haann....to abhi ham kis samassya par baat kar rahe the?"

"Samassya to aap hi bataayenge........aakhir X2 ne mujhe aap ke paas kyon bheja hai."

"Uffohhh.....phir wahi X2......aaha.....thik yaad aaya.....X2 ka vichar hai ki hamen Shukraal ki taraf safar karna chaahiye."

"Haan.....ye baat to sab ko pata hai..."

"Phir........magar ham me se koi Shukraali bol sakta hai?"

"Main apne baare me vishwaas ke sath kah sakta hun ki main bol sakunga."

"Kya aapki shadi ho chuki hai?" Imran ne Shukraali bhasha me sawaal kiya.

"Haayennn.....aap bhi bol sakte hain?" safdar ne shukrali me hi aashcharya vyakt kiya.

"Magar Mr Safdar mujhe khed hai ki aap ko shukraali lahje par niyantran nahin hai."

"Aur mujhe aisa lag raha hai jaise main kisi shukraali se baat kar raha hun."

"Ok...." Imran ek thandi saans lekar bola...."Mehnat barbad nahin gayi."

"Lahja par niyantran rakh pana bahut kathin baat hai..." Safdar sar hila kar bola.

"Aap ye bhi jaante honge ki Shukraal kitni khatarnak jagah hai."

"Ji haan......main jaanta hun."

"Sawaal ye hai ki wahaan prawesh keliye koi bahaana bhi to hona chaahiye. Saat marg aur ek ladki jin me se kewal do Shukrali bol sakte hain.....shesh ka kya banega? Chunki koi ajnabi udhar ka rukh bhi nahin karte......isliye ham har samay khatron ke saamne rahenge. Kya khayal hai?"

"Sahi baat hai.......un logon ka prawesh nishchit roop se khatarnak parinaam ka kaaran ho sakta hai jo shukraali nahin bol sakte."

"Bass ek upaaye hai." Imran kuchh sochta hua bola....."Lekin samay lagega......aur hamaare liye kayi nayi uljhanen paida ho jaayengi."

"Scheme kya hai?"

"Shukrali khel tamaashon se bahut lagaao rakhte hain. Kyon na ham ek chhota sa circus banaayen." Imran barbadaaya.

"Circus keliye aur adhik logon ki awashyakta hogi aur phir samaan bhi sath hona chaahiye."

"Samaan aur aadmiyon ki chinta mat karo.....wo sab uplabdh ho jaayenge. Sarkar iss samassya par bahut badi se badi rashi kharch karne keliye taiyar hai."

"Tab phir koi samassya nahin."

"Hai kyon nahin......iss sthiti me bhi jab ham seedha Shukral me ghuste chale gaye to nishchit roop se hamen sandeh ki drishti se dekha jaayega.........aap isay aise samajhiye.....ki Shukraaliyon me kisi prakar ka shadyantra karne ki kshamta nahin hai. Wo seedhe saade log hain aur unki ungliyaan kewal rifles ke traggar par chalna jaanti hain. Wo lalkaar kar aapka shareer chhalni kar denge.......lekin chhup kar nahin maarenge. Saaf hai ki agar iss shadyantra ka kendra Shukraal hi hai to......wahaan iss saazish ke sargana bhi maujood honge. Isliye unko dhoka dena aasan kaam nahin hoga."

"Ye bhi durust hai."

"Lekin agar wo log khud hi zabardasti hamen shukraal le jaayen to kaisi rahegi?"

"Ye kaise sambhav hai?" Safdar ne puchha.

"Sambhav hai...." Imran bola. "Ham ye zaahir karen ki ham Shukraal ki seema se guzar kar dusre desh me jaana chaahte hain."

"Safdar kuchh der Imran ki taraf dekhta raha......phir bola...."Main ab bhi nahin samjha."

"Ham Maklaak ki seema se lag kar chalte rahenge aur phir uttar disha me mud jaayenge. Thahro....mere paas map(Naksha) hai." Imran uthta hua bola. Usne almaari khol kar ek chart nikaala aur table par phaila diya.

"Ye idhar Maklaak......ye teer ka nishan uttar disha bata raha hai. Ye.....ye laal nishan se ham mud jaayenge.......aur shayad 2 ya 3 km chalne ke baad hamen Shukral ki seema me prawesh hon padega. Yahaan se hamaari disha uttar-purv ki taraf ho jaayega......aur ham Shukraal ki aabadi me ghuse bina uttar-purv disha me chalte rahenge. Iss bhaag me shukraal ki charagaahen hain. Yahaan nishchit roop se Shukraliyon se muthbher hogi. Aur phir uske baad ki samassya mujh par chhod do."

"Scheme to jaandar hai.....lekin ye zaroori nahin ki wo hamen pakar hi le jaayenge." Safdar ne kaha.

"Ye mujh par chhod diya jaaye......iske liye kisi ki uljhan bekaar hai......ye scheme uss chhokadi ke dwaara X2 tak pahucha di jaaye to achha hai."
"Chhokadi....." Safdar hairat se duhraaya.

"Haan....wo kya naam hai....vanolia...."

"Ohh.....Julia......haha.....vanolia......kamaal hai."

"Mujhe ye ladki itni pasand hai ki agar iski koi bahan hoti to main shadi kar leta."

"Wo khud bhi to avivaahit hai......" Safdar apni ek aankh daba kar muskuraaya.

"Arre....? Nahinnn...." Imran ne hairat prakat kiya.

"Yess.....by God...."

"Haattt......main abhi tak samajh raha tha ki wo vivahit hai...."

Itne me Suleman aakar khada ho gaya.

"Kya baat hai?" Imran ne usay ghoorte huye gussa bhare swar me puchha.

"Dinner...."

"Abbe.....namak-haraam. Tu mujhe ulloo kyon banaata hai?"

"Nahin to..."

"Nahin to ke bachche......maine lunch kab liya tha?"

"Khaaye to the..."

"Achha diary utha kar laa...." Imran garaj kar bola.

Suleman ne table diary uski taraf khiska di. Imran ne page palte......aur bola...."Dikha kahaan likha hai?"

"Arre.....ye to parson dopahar ki baat hai saahab......tareekh bhi to dekhiye...."

"Parson....." Imran bokhlaaye huye andaaz me bola. Kuchh pal kuchh sochta raha......phir el lambi karaah ke sath kursi ki back se sat gaya. Wo dhire dhire barbadaa raha tha....."Parson dopahar ka khana......lunch...." Phir Safdar ki taraf dekh kar bola....."Main bahut kamzori mahsoos kar raha hun Mr Daftar.....arrr....safdar.....maine parson dopahar se khaana nahin khaya."

Suleman ne apne sar par dohatthad maara......aur ek taang par khada ho kar bola....."Parson dopahar se nahin.....parson dopahar ko...."

"Kya antar padta hai?" Imran ki aawaz bahut kamzor ho rahi thi.....aur uski aankhen band huyi jaa rahi thin.

Safdar hansne laga lekin Imran ki haalat me koi parivartan nahin hua. Suleman kuchh pal khada raha phir chala gaya. Safdar Imran ki taraf dekh raha tha. Lekin Imran waise hi aankhen band kiye pada raha.

"Imran sahab...." Safdar ne dhire se usay pukaara.

Lekin jawaab nadaarad. Ant-tah Suleman ne uske nikat aa kar dhire se kaha...."Kathin hai sahab.....ab ye kal subah hi kursi par se sokar uthenge...."

"Nahinnnn...." Safdar ko hairat huyi.

Haan sahab.....iske alawa aur kuchh na hoga.

Wo mud kar jhallaaye hue andaaz me boli..."Ye Kya battamizi hai?"


"Kahaan....?" Imran murkhon ki tarah muhh phaad kar khada ho gaya.

"Tum ne mere kandhe par hath kyon rakha tha?"

"Phir kahaan rakhta...?"
