Text and Images स्वतंत्रता की ओर – Hindi Story Marching to Freedom

धनी को पता था क आम म कोई बड़ी योजना बन रही है, पर उसे कोई कुछ
न बताता। “वे सब समझते ह क म नौ साल का  इसलए म बु  । पर म
बु नह!” धनी मन-ही-मन बड़बड़ाया।
धनी और उसके माता-पता, बड़ी ख़ास जगह म रहते थे। अहमदाबाद के
पास, महामा गाँधी के साबरमत आम म-जहाँ पूरे भारत से लोग रहने आते
थे। गाँधी जी क तरह, वे सब भी भारत क वतंता के लए लड़ रहे थे। जब
वे आम म ठहरते तो चरख पर खाद का सूत कातते, भजन गाते और गाँधी
जी के यान सुनते।
साबरमत म सबको कोई न कोई काम करना होता-खाना पकाना, बतन धोना,
कपड़े धोना, कुएँ से पानी लाना, गाय और बकरय का ध हना और सज़ी
उगाना। धनी का काम था-बनी क देखभाल करना। बनी, आम क एक
बकरी थी। धनी को अपना काम पसद था यक बनी उसक सबसे अछ
दोत थी। धनी को उससे बात करना अछा लगता था।

Hindi स्वतंत्रता की ओर

उस दन सुबह, धनी बनी को हरी घास खला कर, उसके बतन म पानी
डालते ए बोला, “कोई बात ज़र है बनी! वे सब गाँधी जी के कमरे म
बैठकर बात करते ह। कोई योजना बनाई जा रही है। म सब समझता ।“
बनी ने घास चबाते ए सर हलाया, जैसे क वह धनी क बात समझ रही
थी। धनी को भूख लगी। कूदती-फाँदती बनी को लेकर वह रसोईघर क
तरफ़ चला। उसक माँ चूहा फँू क रही थ और कमरे म धुआँ भर रहा था।
”अमा, या गाँधी जी कह जा रहे ह?“ उसने पूछा। खाँसते ए माँ बोल, ”वे
सब या पर जा रहे ह।“
”या? कहाँ जा रहे ह?“ धनी ने सवाल कया।
”समु के पास कह। अब सवाल पूछना बद करो और जाओ यहाँ से धनी!“
अमा ज़रा गुसे से बोल, ”पहले मुझे खाना पकाने दो।“
धनी सज़ी क यारय क तरफ़ नकल गया जहाँ बूढ़ा बदा आलू खोद रहा था।

Hindi स्वतंत्रता की ओर”बदा चाचा,“ धनी उनके पास बैठ गया, ”आप भी या पर जा रहे ह या?“
बदा ने सर हला कर मना कया। उसके कुछ बोलने से पहले धनी ने
उतावला होकर पूछा, ”कौन जा रहे ह? कहाँ जा रहे ह? या हो रहा है?“
बदा ने खोदना रोक दया और कहा, ”तुहारे सब सवाल के जवाब गा पर
पहले इस मुई बकरी को बाँधो! मेरा सारा पालक चबा रही है!“
धनी बनी को खच कर ले गया और पास के नीबू के पेड़ से बाँध दया। फर
बदा ने उसे या के बारे म बताया। गाँधी जी और उनके कुछ साथी गुजरात
म पैदल चलते ए, दाँडी नाम क जगह पर समु के पास पचगे। गाँव और
शहर से होते ए पूरा महीना चलगे। दाँडी पच कर वे नमक बनायगे।
