Short Story in Hindi - Nanhi Champa : Celebrating Mother's Day

Short Story in Hindi - Nanhi Champa : Celebrating Mother's Day

Dopahar ke teen baje the. Jade ke din the. Malti chat par baithi magazine ke panne palat rahi thi. Bacche abhi school se nahi aaye the aur pati office me the. Achanak pheri lagati hui choti panch varshiya Champa aur uske pita Shankar ki awaz aayi "churi le lo, rang birangi kamdar kalai ki shobha badhane wali churiyan." Phir Champa apni totli awaz me pukarti "chuli le lo, acchi acchi hain hamare paas."Malti roz ye aawazen sunti thi par kabhi unhe roka nahi. Aaj pata nahi kyun usne uthkar munder se jhanka aur pukara " Champa ruk ja, main dekhoongi aaj."

Neeche utarkar usne baramde me aakar darwaza khola aur haath lagakar tokri neeche utarwayi. "Shankar aaj to vakayi bade pyare rangon ki churiyan laaye ho. Zara gulabiaur baijni rang ki kamdar churiyan mere naap ki nikalo." "Aapko to bibiji sava do maap chalega. Abhi dikhata hoon,"kahkar Shankar ne neeche se sambhal kar sundar churiyan dikhayi. Malti ne pasand kar ke dono rangonke do do darjan liye. Chalees rupaye paakar Shankar khush ho gaya. Kahne laga" aaj bibiji bilkul hi bikri nahi hui thi. Main soch hi raha tha ki aaj to phanke karne karenge par aapki daya se roti ka intjam apni Champa ke liye kar paoonga. Jab se iski ma mari hai, mujhe iski badi chinta rahti hai. Jee raha hoon to bus iske liye varna Parvati ke bina jiya nahi jata," kahte kahte uski aankhen bhar aayin. "Tumne bataya nahi Shankar tumhari bibi kaise mari. kya bimar th?" Malti ne poocha. "Haan bibiji use malaria ho gaya tha. Gaon me theek se ilaj nahi ho paya aur shahar lane ke pahle hi chal basi." Shankar ne bhari awaz me kaha.
