Untitled Part-I (87%)

Usne abhi to kitaab khol kar ballpen uthaayi hee thi ke ghar ki doorbell baji. Ammi ne kitchen se awaaz di "Beta zara dekho na kaun hai, kambakhat fir se kisi ne kuch internet pe se mangvaya to nahi."

Usne book bandh kiye bina dehleez ki or kadam badhaye. Jaise hee darwaza khola to jaise aik malik apne ghar me ghusta hai waise aik aurat ghus aai. "Kaisi ho khala?" usne bade itmenaan se pucha kyuke sab khalaon mainse in ka aana jaana sab se zyada tha inke ghar.
Aur hamesha ki tarha khala ne javab dia "Alhamdulillah sab khairyat se hai."

Ye khala uske valid se do saal chhoti aur baki teen behno me sabse badi thin. Kad me thodi lambi aur dubli thin. Hamesha ki tarha aaj bhi khala apne saath mithaiyaan aur nashta lai thin. Khala ne hall me pohonchte hue aawaaz di "Bhabhi kabhi to kitchen se bahar aao." aur hasne lagin. Ammi kitchen se bahar aai aur khala ka adab se khushaamdeed kia. Ammi khala ke liye chay banane vapis kitchen me chali gayin aur kuch pal ke liye khamoshi si fail gayi. Khala ne khamoshi tod te huve pucha "beta abbu nazar nahi aa rahe?"

"Jee khala wo kaam se bahar gaye hain kuch dair me aa jayenge, kuch kaam tha?" Usne pucha.

"Arre nahin nahin, main to yoon hee puch rahi hoon. Aur bhai kahaan hai tumhara, ghar pe to kabhi nahi hota wo to?" Khala ne deewar pe lagi ghadi ko dekhte huve pucha.

"Jee bhaiya to cricket khelne gaye hain, khane ke waqt tak aa jayenge." Ye kehte huve usne apni kitaab ko dekha aur jhatt se khadi ho gayi. Tab hee ammi chai lekar kitchen se aayin aur usne kitaab ke paas baith kar apni pen fir se haath me li.

"Ab tou board exams haina tumhari? Internal exams ke results bhi aa gaye honge?" Khala ne chay peete huve puchha.

"Jee khala, eighty seven percentage." Usne pen chalate huve javaab dia.

"Poore class me first aayi hai." Ek halki muskaan sajaate huve ammi ne khala ko kaha.

"Mashallah. Mera beta to ab darzi ka kaam sikh raha hai." Humesha ki tarha khala ne apne laadle ki baat chhed di thi.

"Kyu? Aap ne pichli dafa to kaha tha electrician ka kaam sikh chuka hai ab aur jald hee apna kaam shuru karega. Fir ab ye darzi ka kyun?" Ammi taajub se lachaar hokar puchne lagin.

"Jee ussey wo kaam thik nahin laga to usne chhor diya aur waise bhi electrician ke kaam me paisa kam aur risk zyada hota hai." Khala ne safai de di.

" Haan, baat to bilkul sach hai aapki." Ammi kuch aur kehti uss se pehle hi abbu tashreef laye. Abbu ko daikh kar Khala aur Ammi ne apne sar par duppatta thik kia aur sofe pe baithne ka andaaz badal dia.

Uske abbu naik aur imandaar insaan the. Unke sar pe hamesha hee topi rehti thi aur unki 12 saal ki umr se aaj tak koi namaaz nahin chhuti thi. Apne mohalle ke sabse raees aur ilmi insaan the. Samaaj aur bazaar me unke liye adab hone ke ba-wajood wo sade tariqe se jeete they.

"Assalamualaikum" Abbu ne aatey hee salaam kia.
Teeno ne ek saath "walaikumassalam" kaha to abbu ke chehre pe muskaan aa gayi.

Abbu aur Khala ne ek dusre ke haal chaal puche aur ammi ne abbu ke liye chay pesh ki. Abbu aur khala baton me mashgool the aur wo apni padhai me. Ke tabhie uska phone bajne laga.

Wo apni jagah se khadi hui or television ke paas rakhe apne phone tak pohnchti tab tak call kat chuki thi. Usne phone dekha to kisi unknown yaani ke naye number se misscall tha. Usne wapis call lagana zaroori nahi samja aur phone ko wapis rakhne haath badhaya hee tha ke tab hi fir se ussi number se call ayi aur usne call utha kar phone ko apne kaan pe rakhha aur boli "hello."

"Hello kaun?"

"Hello??"

“Hello???”
