LALCHI LOMRI

 

Ek samay ki baat hai, ek jungle mein ek lomdi rehti thi. Lomdi ka naam Thakur tha. Thakur bahut hi lalchi thi aur hamesha kisi na kisi tarah se apne liye khana dhoondhti rehti thi.

Ek din, Thakur jungle mein ghoomte hue ek bade ped ke paas pahunchi. Ped ke neeche ek bada hira pada hua tha. Thakur ne dekha aur socha, “Yeh hira bahut kimti hai. Main isse apne liye rakh lungi aur apni zarooraton mein istemaal karungi.”

Thakur ne hira uthane ki koshish ki, par usse hira uthaane mein naakaam rahi. Lomdi bohot choti hoti hai aur hira bahut bada tha. Fir ek chidiya aayi aur Thakur ki madad karne ke liye bola, “Thakur, main tumhari madad kar sakti hoon. Par tumko mujhe bhi kuch dena hoga.”

Thakur ne socha, “Chidiya bhi mujhe madad kar sakti hai, toh main usse khana de dungi. Hira lekar main apni khushiyon mein khoyi rahungi.”

Chidiya ne apne chonch se hira pakadkar Thakur ko diya. Thakur ne chidiya ko khana de diya aur hira apne ghar le gayi. Usne hira dekha aur bahut khush hui. Par uski lalak bahut badh gayi aur woh aur bhi kimti cheezein chahne lagi.

Dusre din, Thakur phir se jungle mein ghoomne gayi. Wahan usne ek aur cheez dekhi, ek purane kagaz ka tukda. Lomdi ne socha, “Yeh kagaz toh kisi ke kaam ka nahi hai. Main isse apne liye rakh lungi aur iska istemaal karungi.”

Thakur ne kagaz uthane ki koshish ki, par phir se naakaam rahi. Is baar ek chuha aaya aur Thakur ki madad karne ke liye bola, “Thakur, main tumhari madad kar sakta hoon. Par tumko mujhe bhi kuch dena hoga.”

Thakur ne socha, “Chuha bhi mujhe madad kar sakta hai, toh main usse khana de dungi. Kagaz lekar main aur khush rahungi.”

Chuha ne apne daant se kagaz pakadkar Thakur ko diya. Thakur ne chuhe ko khana de diya aur kagaz apne ghar le gayi. Usne kagaz dekha aur fir se khush hui. Par uski lalak aur badh gayi aur woh aur bhi bahut kuch chahne lagi.

Ek din, Thakur ko pata chala ki jungle mein ek kala nagarik tha, jiske paas bahut saari kimti cheezein thi. Thakur ne socha, “Agar main us nagarik se uski cheezein cheen loon, toh main hamesha ke liye khush rahungi.”

Thakur ne nagarik ke ghar chori karne ka plan banaya aur raat ko wahan sneh mein gayi. Wahan pahunchkar usne dekha ki nagarik ke ghar mein bahut saari kimti cheezein thi. Woh khush hokar sab cheezein uthane lagi.

Par beech mein Thakur ke dimaag mein uske dost, chidiya aur chuha ki awaaz aayi. Unhone kaha, “Thakur, humne tumhari madad ki thi, par tumne apne dosti aur madad ki kimat bhool gayi. Lalach tumhe giriftar kar liya hai.”

Thakur samajh gayi ki usne galat kiya tha. Usne sab cheezein chod di aur wapas apne ghar chali gayi. Usne chidiya aur chuha se maafi mangi aur unhe wapas apne dost banaya.

Is kahani se humein yeh sikh milti hai ki lalach hamesha buri hoti hai. Humain hamesha apne dosti aur imandari ko sar aankhon par rakhna chahiye. Lalach ke chakkar mein na padein, kyunki woh hamein galat raaste par le jaati hai.
