Meenakshi – The Girl of Dance Bar



Soham aaj 3din baad tuition aaya tha. Maine Soham se saha
Soham itane din kaha the tum. Soham ne kaha ki Maa ki tabiyat kharab chal rahi
thee to ghar ka sara kaam aur Maa ki dekhbhal kar raha tha. Mai samjh gaya ki Maa
ki bimari ek aur naya bahana hai taki eas mahine fees na dena pade. Pichale 4
mahine se Soham ne tution ki fees nahi di thee, har mahine koi na koi naya bahana
lekar chala aata tha aur Main usase kaheta “agale mahine fees nahi di to tution
se nikala dunga”.





Soham phir se 8din tution nahi aaya. Maine socha eas mahine
ka fees na dene ka karar to ho chukka hai phir Soham tuition kyo nahi aa raha
hai. Exam kuchh hee dino me hone wali thee aur Soham ki khasta halat me use
Scholarship milna jaruri tha nahi to vo aage padhai nahi kar paata. Maine
Imraan se pucha tu Soham ka ghar jaanta hai. Imraan ne khaha “Sir, Mai Soham ka
ghar to nahi janta par uski colony mujhe pata. Maine Imraan se kaha ki kal
Mujhe Soham ki colony tak chhod dena.





I have decided myself that I’ll go and meet his Parents. I
also thought at the same time I’ll take them left, right & center for not
paying my tuition fees from last so many months. They never paid my fees and
neither came is person to apologies for the not making the tuition fees on
time. Soham was good student and that was the only reason that I was not
throwing him out from my tuition. I was thinking all that and slept on Sofa.





Next day, in the evening …… Imraan chalo Soham ke ghar
chalana hai. Imraan said,”Sir, I have to go to ration soap so I won’t be able
to come with you.” Maine Imraan se kaha Mujhe rasta bata do Main khud ghar
dhundh lunga. Imraan told me the way. Highway ke uas taraf Shantivan Dongari Me
jaakar Bar Girl Chawal puchh lena aur Bar Girl chawal me jakar Soham ka naam
puchhna aapko Ghar mil jayega. Imraan jane hee wala tha par achaanak mudkar usane
mujhse kaha,” Sir, Meenakshi Kaha raheti hai puchhenge to Shantivan ka koi bhi
bachha aapko soham ke ghar chhod kar aa jayega.





Meri tuition class se Shantivan ka rasta 1KM tha. Sham ka
waqt tha to main eek cigrate jalali aur paidal he Shantivan ki taraf chalne
laga. 15 minutes chalane ke baad I reached Shantivan Dongri. Freak, even place
like Shantivan dongari exist that to in city like Mumbai. Shantivan ke charo
taraf gandgi hee gandgi thee. Maine eas gandgi ko dekhkar Soham ke Ghar jaane
ka plan badalnewala he tha ki mujhe achanak se Imraan ki baat yaad aayi.
Meenakshi……..sssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss





Jaise Taise Gandgi aur naalo ko par karake mai Shantivan
Dongri me pahuch gaya. Ek paas he me khade bujurag se maine kaha Chacha.
Bujurag ne meri taraf dekh kar kaha ki beta tum to bade sarif dikhate ho yaha
kya kar rahe ho. Mai Chacha se Bar Girl Chawal puchhane he wala tha ki unki
baat sunkar maine kaha ji, “Meenakshi jee ke yaha jana hai, kya aap mujhe rasta
bata denge.” Chacha ke kaha dikhate sarif ho par jana Bar Girl Mohalle me hai.





Meenakshi ke Darwaje par pahuch kar maine Thak - Thak karke do
chaar baar kadi baja di. Andar se aawaj aayi kaun harami mar raha hai jo itni
jor-jor se kadi baja raha hai. Pata nahi kaha-kaha se harami aakar mere darwaje
par marate hai, lakh bar kahe chuki hu ki maine kahi jism-pharoshi ka kaam nahi
kiya aur kabhi nahi karungi par saale manate nahi aur aakar meri kadi bajate
hai, jao apni Maa-Bahan ko Deh-vypar ke  dhande
me laga do…….aur Darwaja achanak se khula.





Meenakshi mere samne kadhi thee. She was looking like angel.
I was unable to believe that in place like Shantivan Dongri, I’ll find a girl
like Meenakshi. Sudaul sharer, Tirchhi nigahe, Naak ki dayi taraf ka til jaise
eas chand ko aur roshan kar raha ho. Mujhe dekh kar Meenakshi thodi
shak-pakayee aur kaha, “Maaf kijiye aap kaun hai? Mujhe laga local lafange hai
to main gali galoch karane lagi.” Meenakshi ne phir se apni baat doharyee aur
main to usake sapno me khoya tha ki achanak se Soham pichhe se daudta aaya aur
kaha,”Sir aap yaha!”





Meenakshi ne mujhe andar aane ko kaha aur mai bhi apne sapne
se jaga gaya. Meenakshi ka ghar 10X12 feet ka hoga, Mumbai jaise Shahar me aaj
bhi log garibi aur badhali me jee rahe hai. Eas shahar ko sapno ki nagari,
Financial capital of India kahalane ka koi haq nahi tha. Meenakshi ka ghar
dekhane ke baad to mujhe lambi-lambi imarate jaise eas shahar ke upar daag
lagane lagi. Neta, Abhineta, Businessman, Sarkari Karmchari sabhi apni jeb
bharane me lage hai aur garibo ka haal behal hai.





Philosophy, Philosophy, Philosophy, Philosophy…………………….sssssssssssssss…………..
Maine khud kayee salo se koi Tax nahi bharatha to mujhe kisi ko kuchh kahane ka
koi haq nahi tha, par insane phitarat to aap janate hai. Aapni galati hamesha
bhul jata hai aur dusaro ki galati par nyaay ki baat karta tha. Meenakshi ne
kaha Sir…Sir…Sir…Sirr…………… Mai phir se aapne khayalo me kho gaya tha aur
Meenkashi ke payre labzo ne mujhe jaga diya. Mujhe Sir ye shabd aaj se pahele
kabhi itna pyara nahi laga tha.





Maine kaha,”Meenakshi jee, Soham kai dino se tuition nahi aa
raha tha aur usaki exam agale mahine hai. Agar vo fail ho gaya to use
scholarship nahi milegi. Tuition me bhi kisi bachhe ko bhi nahi pata tha ki
Soham class kyo nahi aa raha hai to mai khud use dhundhane aa gaya.” Maine apni
baat rokate huye Meenakshi ko dekh rah tha aur usake Umra ka andaaza laga raha
tha. Meenakshi ne meri taraf dekhate huye kaha,”Sir, Mere pass Soham ki padhi
ka kharch uthane ki aur himmat nahi, Jab se Mumbai me Dance Baar band ho gaye
sab kuchh khatam ho gaya.





Mai eas shahar ka ek teacher, ek sharif aadmi eas waqt ek
Dance Bar Girl ke ghar me baitha hai. Mai eas waqt Bar Girl Chawal me baitha
hu. Shayad ye baat agar Shantivan dongri se bahar gayi to meri Tuition ki dukan
kal se band ho jayegi, parantu sab baato ko ek taraf rakhate huye maine
Meenakshi se puchha aap ki ye halat kaise hui aur Soham aapka sagga beta hai
kya?, kyonki aapki umra to bahut kam lagati hai. Meenakshi ne kaha,”Ha Sir,
Soham mera saga beta hai.”



























Mai Meenakshi ko utsukta bhari aankho se dekh
raha tha ki usane bolna chalu kiya,”Ham pahele Andheri lokhandwala me rahete
the. Mai Zarina Dance Bar Ki sabse top dancer thee. Mai roz ka 10,000 rupaye
kamatee thi. Dance Bar ki chaka chaundh aur apni sari wish puri karne ke
chakkar me maine kabhi ek rupya nahi bachaya aur ek din Mumbai me Dance Bar
Band hone ka kanun aa gaya. Ab log Service Bar ke naam par mujhe kaam par
rakhna chahate hai aur vo sab karna chahte hai jo maine kabhi nahi kiya………..Main
Dance Bar Girl hu koi Randi nahi ……………………………..Mai sirf aur sirf dance karna
janti hu.
