The Parallel Universe : A Hyopthesis in simple words

Parallel universe is a concept whereby it is proposed that alternate universe or alternate reality co-exists with existing one. A set of many such parallel universes is known as a multiverse. A parallel universe may almost completely resemble,with minor differences, with current one or may be so much different that it may as well be following different sets of laws of physics.

There are many hypotheses regarding creation and existence of such parallel universes. Here I am proposing my own hypothesis which is derivative of my in depth analysis and imagination based on knowledge acquired from different sources. Like all other existing hypotheses on this topic, the current hypothesis is also a little complex but still I will try to explain in simple words in this article so that everyone can get to understand the basic concept of it. A more technical one will be written separately soon.

Concept :
As per concept of wave particle duality all material things and energy forms exhibit property of both wave as well as particle.This coupled with Heisenberg uncertainty principle and Schrodinger's theory give conclusion that any particular object, living or non living may exists at innumerable place in innumerable state with different probability. But then the question arises how we see a particular object at a particular place in a particular state when it can exist at many places simultaneously that too in many different states. To answer this question comes the Copenhagen interpretation.

According to the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum physics, normally physical systems do not have definite properties prior to being measured, and quantum mechanics can only predict the probability distribution of a given measurement's possible results. The act of measurement affects the system, causing the set of probabilities to reduce to only one of the possible values immediately after the measurement. This feature is known as wave function collapse, a phenomenon whereby a wave function which is a superimposition of several eigenstates suddenly reduces to a single eigenstate due to interaction with the external world.

A non-physics person can completely ignore the above two paragraphs as I mentioned it just to give a little technical background to the concept. The only thing needs to be taken out from above theories is that observation,measurement and interaction affects our world and gives it different values, sizes and shapes. The number of ways a non living entity may observe, measure and interact with the outer world is almost always constant, other than few unpredictable processes such as radioactive decay, while when it comes to living entities they may choose to do it in different ways. The more evolved the species is the more choices his mind will be able formulate to and thus exercise.

Creation : Every such different probable way results in the creation of a parallel universe. The non living entity keeps on creating a very limited number of parallel universes while the living entity, depending on its stage of evolution, keeps on creating parallel universes in much higher numbers. Here it's important to understand that the new universe does not mean creation of a whole new universe, it means that one extra dimension in the existing universe has been created and a part of the every existing particle wave in the current universe flows into it creating new probabilities. Thus Every universe creation results in one extra dimension to the existing universe in which new universes independent of the old universe start progressing.

This seems like universe burst as every single choice made in every single universe will result in a new universe, thus effectively exponential growth in number of universes will happen resulting in infinite universes within a few minutes. But this is not the case as continuous merging and purging of universes keeps on happening. And the maximum number of universes is not infinite but is limited.

Limitation : Here I propose that the maximum number of universes a living mind can create is limited to (maximum velocity a mind can perceive/measure)² that is c² in case of humans where “c” is speed of light. For less evolved species c will have lower values while for species more evolved than humans c will be higher than velocity of light(yes i am also proposing that velocity higher than that of light is possible which we will be discussing in some other write-up). This proposition is derived from the famous Einstein mass and energy equivalence equation E=mc².To keep it simple I will explain the physics behind this limitation theory separately. The limitation is in the extent of measurement, the extent to which a mind can imagine possibilities and convert it into reality. This balance is achieved through a continuous process of abrupt end and merger of different stable and unstable existing universes giving way to continuous formation of new ones.

Merging : I will try to explain this by example of human beings. Human mind is considered to be at a very advanced stage of evolution and has the capability to work out more possibilities than any other known living being. Every choice made by the human mind creates a new universe.along with creation, a large number of these universes keeps on ending abruptly with unnatural death of the human in the concerned universe, For example death due to natural calamity, Road accidents, diseases etc., of the person.

Even a larger chunk of these universes prove to be unstable after a certain time of its creation due to the unstable eigenstate with no possible eigenvalue of few or many particle waves flowing into that dimension. These unstable universes tend to merge in one of the existing universes. For human beings and other living entities it happens at times when the mind is at rest and in dormant state,majorly during sleep. This merging explains the phenomenon of dream, which is nothing but actually a glimpse of the merging unstable parallel universe. When due to certain reasons a person doesn't get enough sleep he in extreme situations may happen to see the glimpse even with open eyes which seems like an illusion. Some time this merging happens even during totally awaken state which most of the time seems like daydreaming. 

End : Every creation of a new dimension results in expansion of the particle wave in a new dimension, thereby reducing probability of existence of the person in the original universe. The same logic also explains that every merger/end results in increased probability of existence in the original universe. As the number of universes, after continuous process of creation, abrupt ends and merger, reaches to the maxima that is c², the wave function of the person reaches in such a state where the wave function of collapse happens resulting in one single outcome that is natural death of the person. With the natural death of a person all parallel universes created by his mind come to an end and convert into a fact for all other existing universes.

Canets vs Homus - Chapter 2 - The First Move

Time : 89600 BC

Place : Nyonshi, South of Tibet in Parallel Universe(215)

The Homus, armed with spear and fire, were slowly and surely gaining upper grounds, but the move was not yet troubling for Canets as there was more than enough food available for the current population of both species. Canets and Homus normally don't use to attack each other because they were wary of each other's spears and razor sharp claws and no one wanted any injury which may permanently make a dent in their ability to hunt. In wilderness a carnivorous animal ,who is not able to hunt, is as good as dead animal. Barring a few incidents they were peacefully coexisting.

As It goes without saying that change is the only constant , the environment on parallel earth started changing with the advent of the ICE age. With decreasing temperature many hitherto green areas started converting into barren ice lands.This decrease in vegetation resulted in decrease in availability of food for herbivorous animals adversely affecting their population. Fall in number of herbivorous animals, 
food source of carnivorous animals, resulted in increased competition between carnivorous animals, thereby disturbing the balance of power between Canets and Homus.

The Homus who had by now improved their spears and had also started learning the art of using fire as a weapon were proving themselves to be better hunters than Canets. Since it was a question of basic food needs and survival they had no other option but to hunt and gather food by hunting whatever prey available to them. Due to limited availability ,The Canets, despite being great hunters, were not able to fulfil their food needs. The unsaid rule of non-interference got challenged as Canets started trying snatching the prey hunted,most of the time unsuccessfully, by Homus. While the population of Homus remain unaffected the Canets were surely feeling the heat of advent of the ICE age.

During these days, at the location known as Nyonshi,situated south of Tibet ,Wuldram, the leader of a pack of Canets, thought of an idea to bring his pack as well as his species out of this misery. Wuldram, using the great Canet power of long distance communication, discussed his idea with the leaders of packs of the areas as far away as 10 km. Those leaders and subsequent leaders relayed the idea to even further areas.In this way Wuldram covered an area of almost 1000 sq km and convinced everyone to join the cause. After detailed discussion everyone agreed to the idea and asked Wuldram to lead the mission.

The core idea was that it is high time to wipe out the biggest competitor from their territory and thus ensure total control on food. Wuldram told everyone that since Homus got better weapons and normally the group size of Canets and Homus are almost similar, it's almost impossible to defeat in territory-by-territory battle. He came up with the idea of a joint,10 packs at a time, and sustained attack on different groups of Homus effectively making it a 10 vs 1 battle.The attack was planned to take place on the coming full moon.

On the D day different clans of Homus,totally unaware of what was coming, were busy hunting for their day to day survival. At midnight Wuldram and his force attacked as planned. Outnumbered 10 times, despite having better weapons and skills, Homus had no chance against powerful and mighty Canets. Thus the massacre started at midnight and continued till morning, one by one at different locations. Taken aback by the attack Homus tried running for their life, some climbed on nearest tall trees and some hid inside mountain caves but the majority died fighting courageously.

This attack effectively gave total control to Wuldram and his army. Canets were equipped with faster means of communication, hence they communicated this win to other Canets all over the world before Homus could warn their counterparts in other parts of the world. Canets all over the world followed this strategy with similar success before Homus could even realise about what's happening.

The leftover Homus, known to be good at improvising and using their brains wisely, were few in numbers and were scattered. The limitation with them was that Canets were everywhere on the ground and that they didn't have technique to have long distance communication and hence were not able to share their experience of defeat with each other and devise any sort of plan to come out of this misery. They were probably waiting for a valiant hero who could take the risk of a long journey and regroup the Homus.

Entropy of mind : The Randomness

As per "Second law of Thermodynamics" Entropy of universe is supposed to continuously increase with time. Entropy is a term in thermodynamic which basically refers to disorder or randomness in a system. It is also a measure of energy that is unavailable to do any kind of useful work. In a way entropy is such disorder of system which negatively effects the efficiency of any given system. This disorder can either increase or remain constant and it can never decrease in any isolated system. And there is only one condition where this disorder can be contained that is when all processes of the system become perfectly reversible.

This entropy enters into mind of a person as soon it gets formed inside the womb of a mother and slowly slowly start unsettling it. Mind of a child,which got very low entropy, is generally very clear about surroundings, receptive of new ideas and can quickly learn and unlearn things. A young person got lesser baggage that is lesser innate disorder in his mind thus stay more happy, cheerful and positive about its surroundings.He is able to reflect on things in better ways and inherently more fearless to take on any challenge compared to his old self. This is why a child sleeps way more peacefully compared to a grown up person.

As a person grow older naturally he gets to learn many new things and gain experience about its surroundings. Every incident, be it positive,negative or neutral one, leaves unique mark in his mind and his innate ordered positiveness gets affected. This creates disorder in the system resulting in increase in entropy in his mind. The "ability to learn" and more so "ability to unlearn" things decrease. As the age catches up with the person, actively and passively, positive and negative, innumerable things keep running in his mind. The person becomes more cautious and suspicious about the surrounding and slowly but surely becomes more and more negative about prevailing things. A higher form of entropy may also result in depression, addiction, self harm, short tempered behaviour, greediness etc. The entropy also adversely affect the regenerative powers of our cells resultantly taking toll on both mental as well as physical health.

This does not mean that once things deteriorated it cannot be controlled. Though its true that entropy can never decrease in isolated system but then our brain is not an isolated machine. It is very much connected to our body as well as to the surrounding environment. So with serious efforts we can, though only in limited ways, bring back some order in our brain.For this we have to believe in our-self, focus inside our mind, avoid all kind of negative energy and with effort create positiveness to push disorder out of the mind to the universe.The most famous way of reducing entropy, which can be tried is doing meditation in which person focuses on his internal energy and try to calmly control his thoughts and actions.But it can be seen that majority of people find it difficult to sustain with continuously doing meditation. 

Those who are not very comfortable or regular with meditation need not to loose hope. Any simple natural hobby or in-fact even your regular job done with passion and positive attitude may work as effectively as meditation can. Many scriptures and religious texts including the famous Bhagwat Geeta have either put 'Karma Yoga" above "Bhakti Yoga" or atleast at same level.For a sports loving person his favourite sport can do wonders in keeping mind peacefully balanced, those who got hobbies like painting, singing, dancing, cooking, writing etc can also get enough order in his mind just by religiously pursuing his hobby. Here let me clarify that you need not to be even average in his area of interest, its just that your intensity of interest should be above average in those areas and you should enjoy what you are doing. Even your job, if done with positive attitude may help creating order in your mind.

The more you keep things ordered and simple, the lesser will be entropy resulting in more peaceful,calm and stable mind.


Canets vs Homus - Chapter 1 - Power Unknown

Time : 97000 BC

Place : Planet Earth in Parallel Universe(215)


There used to live a unique kind of animal known as Canets , can be considered as ancestor of modern day canines(family canidae) which consist of 36 types of animals. The Canets were very agile and strong animals with razor sharp claws and strong enough teeth to easily crush bones. They used to live and hunt as pack and had very strong sense of belongingness to the family as well as to their own species. Canets had olfactory receptors in trillions and thus got sniffing power so high that they could detect and track animals as far as 5 km away. 

They could also communicate with each other by sending waves of different frequency to even far away areas. They used to communicate with Canets packs living far away exchanging information regarding availability of food and water in their area. Though areas were strictly divided and every pack used to defend their area vigorously but in case of need they used to invite other packs to live for limited period of time. In adversity they used to get united and face everything as one. Due to these abilities and Unity they were in a way ruling most of the earth. Even Lions, The Undisputed King, used to avoid them unless it becomes very necessary cause they knew that Canets always got re-enforcement even from packs of nearby as well as far off areas.

Things don't always remain same and as expected it started changing with the advent of new two legged species, which migrated from Africa and started expanding their area in different part of the world. These two legged species were known as Homus and used to live predominantly on trees. 

Homus were not as agile and not as strong as Canets were and had non existent claws and blunt teeth, also they were incapable to send long distance waves of communication and had very normal sniffing power.But they do had bigger brains and were good at learning and improvising new things. Using their brainpower they had started developing weapons out of which most useful one was spear and had also learned to use and control fire. With the power of Fire and Spear and other improvisations they started moving from trees to land specially higher grounds.

There on land Canets were waiting for Homus for "Peaceful coexistence" or a "Prolonged war"? You may give your predictions regarding the story-line.

The Random Scribbling

Random Scribbling
During my school and college days, whenever I felt puzzled or thoughtful, I used to randomly write things. It was like writing whatever came to my mind at that instance without giving any deep thought to what I am writing and without thinking about correctness of language or words. The purpose was always to clear out my mind, do introspections and get to know my-self.

After every such writing I have felt very calm and content and for me it worked even better than meditation.

The reason why such writings almost always helps is that our mind does not work in a linear fashion. In fact, it is as random as entropy can be. While on the other side the people around us expect us to be predictable, linear, and very balanced in our working. For people like me who try to fulfill such expectations this gets too puzzling and they need a way out to channelize this randomness out of their mind which otherwise results in creating a web around one's mind and choking it out.

As it happens, many people ask me how to tackle stress built over a long time. My suggestion to them has been to write randomly till the time they feel that there is no thought left in their mind and at the end of the writing they will feel relieved of the stress, at least temporarily, and then use this temporary calm period to relax the mind so that one can analyze things in better way later. Calm mind is always a better analyzer than a stressed one.

As life went on, I somewhere stopped using this art of knowing myself due to a variety of reasons and none of those reasons seems justified to me right now. So I am not listing down them here. In a way I stopped introspecting a lot which used to be one of my strongest skills and I think that this skill is most important one for any human being. I lately realized that it is high time I should start using this art of knowing myself and writing for myself without giving much thought to it. And I advise everyone else to do so too, specially those who are not good in expressing themselves.

So this was my Random Scribbling for today and the first one for this blog.

पुलिस अधीक्षक, जैसलमेर का स्वतंत्रता दिवस पर सन्देश

स्वतंत्रता की 71वीं वर्षगांठ के पावन पर्व पर आप सभी जैसलमेर वासियों को मेरी तरफ से एवं जिला पुलिस की तरफ से हार्दिक शुभकामनाएं एवं अभिनंदन

स्वतंत्रता के इस पावन पर्व पर मैं, गौरव यादव, अपने विचार आपके समक्ष व्यक्त करना चाहता हूंः-

जैसलमेर अपने प्राकृतिक सुनहरी सुन्दरता के लिए पूरे विश्व में शानदार पहचान बना चुका है तथा गोल्डन सीटी के नाम से विश्व विख्यात पर्यटन स्थली है। यहां आने वाले सैलानियों का ध्यान सबसे पहले सड़को की स्वच्छता एवं सुरक्षा की तरफ जाता है। कहते है ‘‘फस्र्ट इम्प्रेशन इज द लास्ट इम्प्रेशन’’। हालांकि सड़कों के रख रखाव की जिम्मेदारी सरकारी एजेन्सियों की है किन्तु यदि हम सब नागरिक अपना अपना घर व आस-पास सफाई रखें तथा सड़को को गन्दा न करें। तो स्वच्छता के स्तर में अभूतपूर्व वृद्धि आयेगी। राह चलते राहगीर निर्धारित स्थान पर ही कचरा पात्र में कचरा डालें, आईये हम सब मिलकर ‘‘स्वच्छ भारत - स्वच्छ राजस्थान - स्वच्छ जैसलमेर’’ बनावें।
सड़क की सफाई के साथ ही साथ दूसरा पहलू सड़क पर सुरक्षा का भी है। पुलिस सड़क सुरक्षा हेतु अपने कर्तव्य का निरन्तर निर्वहन कर रही है परन्तु यह कार्य आमजन के सम्पूर्ण सहयोग के बिना पूर्ण नहीं हो सकता है। अतः प्रत्येक नागरिक का दायित्व है कि वह यातायात नियमों का पालन करें जैसे दो पहिया वाहन चालक हैलमेट का प्रयोग करें व चैपहिया वाहन चालक सीट बैल्ट का प्रयोग करें। इसके साथ-साथ किसी को कोई भी व्यक्ति शरारत या बदमाशी करता दिखे तो तुरन्त पुलिस को सूचित करें, हो सके तो आॅडियो / विडियो बनाकर प्रेषित करें ताकि अवांच्छित तत्वों के विरूद्ध सख्त से सख्त कार्यवाही की जा सकें। हर व्यक्ति के अधिकार के साथ कर्तव्य भी है, जब प्रत्येक नागरिक अपनी ड्यूटी करेगा तथा नियमोें का पालन करेगा तब सड़क पर दुर्घटना में कमी आ सकेगी तथा अपराधों की रोकथाम भी हो सकेगी। 

पर्यटन से सम्बन्धित एक गम्भीर समस्या लपको की भी है जो सैलानियों का ध्यान आकर्षित करते है तथा उन्हे परेशान करते है। इस सम्बन्ध में पुलिस अपना कार्य कर रही है तथा इस वर्ष इस कार्य को और गति प्रदान करेगी। इस सम्बन्ध में आप सभी नागरिकों से अपेक्षा है कि लपकों को पनाह न दे, यदि कोई लपकागिरी करता हो तो पुलिस को तुरन्त इतला करें तथा यहां आने वाले पर्यटकों को सुरक्षा का अहसास करावें एवं यहां आने वाले पर्यटकों के समक्ष जैसलमेर की अच्छी छवि पेश करें। 

पर्यटन नगरी होने के साथ साथ जैसलमेर भारत का सीमावर्ती जिला है। जिसके कारण इसका सामरिक दृष्टि से अपना अलग महत्व है। जैसलमेर जिले से 471 किमी अन्तर्राष्ट्रीय सीमा लगती है। देश की सुरक्षा एजेन्सिया सीमा की सुरक्षा तत्परता से करती है। लेकिन देश के जिम्मेदार नागरिक होने के कारण देश की सुरक्षा का दायित्व हम सब का है। यदि कोई संदिग्ध व्यक्ति या वस्तु दिखे तो इसकी सूचना तुरन्त पुलिस को दें।

आज के डिजीटल युग में सोशल मीडिया का प्रचलन दिनो दिन बढ़ा है, प्रत्येक व्यक्ति के हाथ में स्मार्ट फोन / टेबलेट है तथा वह सोशल मीडिया पर एक्टिव रहते है। किसी को जाने बिना ही फ्रेन्ड रिक्वेस्ट भेज देेते है तथा अनजान व्यक्ति की फ्रेन्ड रिक्वेस्ट स्वीकार कर लेते है इस सम्बन्ध में प्रत्येक व्यक्ति को सजग रहना होगा। सोशल मीडिया पर सोच-समझकर ही फै्रन्डस बनावे एवं विचार व्यक्त करें तथा कोई भी फोटो/विडियो/आॅडियो काॅपी-पेस्ट करने से पहले उसके बारे में संतुष्टि कर ले कि वह देश की सुरक्षा व्यवस्था या धार्मिक भावना को ठेस पहुंचाना वाला नहीं हो, ताकि देश की सुरक्षा व्यवस्था एवं आपसी भाईचारा बना रहे। 

जैसलमेर सीमावर्ती जिला होने से हम सब का अतिरिक्त दायित्व है कि जाति, धर्म, साम्प्रदायिकता से उपर उठकर जैसलमेर जिले का सुरक्षित रखे व संयुक्त रूप से विकास की ओर अग्रसर करें जिससे देश की एकता, अखण्डता व आपसी सौहार्द कायम रह सकें।

जिला जैसलमेर में साम्प्रदायिक सौहार्द के रूप में विख्यात बाबा रामदेवजी का मेला लगता है। वर्तमान में बाबा के दर्शनार्थ राज्य के साथ-साथ देश के विभिन्न जगहों से दर्शनार्थियों का आवागमन हो रहा है। इस सम्बन्ध में दर्शनार्थियों व जिलेवासियों से मेरा अनुरोध है कि मेले में व्यवस्था बनाये रखे तथा आने-जाने वाली सड़कों पर भी ऐसी व्यवस्था हो कि आने वाले दर्शनार्थी सहज एवं सुरक्षित महसूस करें, क्योंकि हमारे यहां आने वाल हर दर्शनार्थी/पर्यटक हमारा अतिथि है ‘‘अतिथी देवों भवः’’ भारत की संस्कृति है तो अतिथियों का सम्मान तथा सुरक्षा करना हमारी जिम्मेदारी है जिसे हमें सजग रहकर पूरा करना है।

वर्तमान मेें जैसलमेर का उतरोत्तर विकास हो रहा है, यहां पर खनिजों व प्राकृतिक उर्जा का विशाल भण्डार है तथा इसके कारण विभिन्न प्रकार के औद्योगिक संस्थानों का विकास हुआ है। दूसरी ओर इंदिरा गांधी नहर की वजह से जिले की काया पलट हो गई है। रेगिस्तान के रूप में जाना जाने वाला जिला हरा-भरा एवं पयर्टन नगरी तथा विकसित जिले की श्रैणी में आ रहा है। 

जैसलमेर के विकास के लिए प्रत्येक व्यक्ति को विकासोन्मुख सोच विकसित करनी चाहिए क्योंकि आज जैसलमेर मेें खनिज, उद्योग, पर्यटन व नहर के कारण विकास हुआ है यदि प्रत्येक व्यक्ति उपलब्ध संसाधनों का सकारात्मक रूप से व विकासोन्मुख उपयोग करें तो जिले का वर्तमान से तीन-चार गुणा तेजी से विकास हो सकता है तथा जैसलमेर देश व राज्य के आर्थिक विकास में महत्वपूर्ण योगदान कर सकता है।

अपनी बात को समाप्त करने पहले मैं चाहुंगा कि 71वें स्वतंत्रता दिवस के इस पावन पर्व पर हम संकल्प ले कि: 

"जाति, धर्म व साम्प्रदायिकता की भावना से उपर उठकर सजग, स्वच्छ, सम्पन्न एवं सुदृढ समाज का निर्माण करें एवं भारत देश की एकता, अखण्डता एवं सम्प्रभुता बनाये रखें।"

हमारी स्वच्छ मानसिकता ही स्वतंत्र भारत की पहचान है।

                 जय हिन्द

एक पुलिसवाले की व्यथा

लोग अक्सर कहते हैं कि पुलिस सही तरीके से क्राइम कंट्रोल नहीं करती है लेकिन पुलिस करे तो करे क्या। उग्र भीड़ को क्राइम कंट्रोल करने पर आधारित एक लघु कथा।

injured policeman
उन्मादी भीड़ हाथों में नंगी तलवारें, लाठी, डंडे लिए पागलों की तरह पुलिस वालों को पत्थर मार मार कर खदेड़ रही थी। उसकी पुलिस भीड़ से अपना असलाह और खुद को बचाते हुए पीछे हट रही थी। थानेदार का सर बुरी तरह फूट गया दो सिपाही उसे सँभालते हुए पीछे हट रहे थे बड़े अफसर, एस डी ऍम, सब मौके से गायब थे। ऑर्रडर देने वाला कोई दूर दूर तक नहीं था। भीड़ हावी होती जा रही थी। सब को कहीं न कही चोट लगी थी।भीड़ को लाठी डंडो से काबू करने के हालात तो बिलकुल भी नहीं थे। सबकी जान पर बनी हुई थी परंतु हाथ में लोड राइफल होते हुए भी जवान गोली चलाने से बच रहे थे, कैसी कायर स्तिथि थी। अचानक हवलदार बुधना को भीड़ ने पकड़ लिया और एक आदमी ने बुधना के सर पर कैरोसिन की गैलन उंडेल दी और दूसरे ने माचिस निकाली ही थी की धाँय की आवाज हुई और माचिस वाला जमीं पर लुढकने लगा।दूसरी आवाज में तेल के गैलन वाला जमीं पर कला बाजी खा रहा था । भीड़ जहां थी वहीँ थम गयी और उलटे पावँ भागने लगी लेकिन......अब गोलियों की आवाज थमने का नाम नहीं ले रहीं थी, एक एक कर उसने मैगज़ीन खाली कर दी। पुलिस सुरक्षित थी। उसकी वजह से सब बच गए। जमीन पर कुछ वहसी अब मांस के लोथड़े भर रह गए थे, जिन्हें वह अपने बूट की ठोकरों से कुचल रहा था। साथी अब उसे सँभालने में लगे थे जिसने सबको संभाल लिया।

भीड़ अब भी थी, मीडिया वालों की, बड़े अफसरों की, बड़े छोटे नेताओं की...... मुर्दों के फोटो खींचे जा रहे थे,घायलों से सवाल पूछे जा रहे थे , मिडिया उसे एक विलेन की तरह से कवर कर रहा था। तीन चार जवान उसे कैमरों से दूर ले जाने की कोशिश में लगे थे, बुधना अब भी तेल में भीगा हुआ वहीँ मौजूद था कुछ कहने की कोशिश कर रहा था पर कोई उसकी सुन ही नहीं रहा था........? TV पर ब्रेकिंग न्यूज़ चल रही है एक पागल सिपाही ने 5 निर्दोष लोगों की गोली मार कर ह्त्या कर दी और 10 लोगों की हालत गंभीर बानी हुई है। प्रत्येक मृतक के परीजनों को 20-20 लाख और गंभीर रूप से घायलों को 5 लाख की मुआवजा राशि की घोषणा राज्य सरकार ने की है। गोली चलाने वाले सिपाही को गिरफ्तार करके जेल भेज दिया गया है। .........?.......

दो साल बाद आज कोर्ट का फैसला आएगा ,पुलिस के वो सभी साथी अब इधर उधर दूसरी जिलों में चले गए हैं, फिर भी 5/6 लोग आये हैं, बुधना हवलदार रिटायर हो गया है पर वो मौजूद है, मैं हमेशा ही उससे मिलने जेल आता रहा हूँ।, हर बार उसे ढाढ़स देकर खुद रोता हुआ वापस जाता हूँ।
अपने बस का है भी क्या । आज भी हम सब वही कर रहे थे।उसके पास ढाढ़स के सिवा कुछ नहीं है ।परिवार से बीबी और 12 साल का बड़ा बेटा आये हैं, पिताजी अब नहीं आते पहले आते थे, कैसे आएं अब दुनिया में ही नहीं हैं।कोई बड़ा अफसर भी नहीं आया, उनके पास इन फॉलतू कामों के लिए समय ही कहाँ है। थाने से एक SI जरूर लीगल ब्रांच से कोर्ट के आर्डर की कापी लेने आया है।......

जज साहब अपनी सीट पर आकर बैठ गए हैं। फैसला लिखवाया जा रहा है,जज साहब प्रकांड विद्वान सरीखे हैं उदाहरण और दलीलें भी फैसले के साथ साथ लिखवा रहे हैं.......?.....अंत की उस एक लाइन ने जैसे उसकी सब आशाओं और हिम्मत का अंत कर दिया......"उम्र कैद,मृत्यु आने तक"। मौन होकर उसने फैसला सुना , पत्नी फर्स पर बेहोश पड़ी है, बुधना और बाकी साथी उससे लिपट कर बिलखने लगे, बेटा कातर आँखों से कभी बाप को देख रहा है तो कभी जमीं पर पड़ी माँ को उठाने का नाकाम सा प्रयास कर रहा है।.........? उसने बेटे के सर पर हाथ फेरा.....

फिर बुधना से सिर्फ इतना कहा ," उस्ताद.......मर तो उस दिन भी गए ही थे, अगर तब मर जाते तो आज गले लग कर कहाँ रो पाते, हो सके तो इसे कहीं भर्ती करवा देना.......? और कोई रोजगार तो हम जैसों को.........?
