Learning to speak, read and write Hindi

अनार अजगर

This the first in a series of 49 books which has a story for each alphabet of the Hindi language . There is a workbook at the end of it . If you read and write these you will have a rudimentary knowledge of Hindi by the end of it ! After that it is a cake walk !

Also all the stories have a moral a la Aesop’s fables and Panchantatra stories. The fact that they are all humorous is just the icing on the cake ! Who does not like to begin the day with a smile 😊 !

अजगर

अजगर

एक अजगर था । वह बहुत अदभुत था।उसकी आदत थी कि वह रोज़ एक जानवर खा जाता था । और फिर सो जाता था । अब खा कर सो जाओगे तो बीमार तो पड़ जाओगे। बस वो बीमार पड़ गया । उसकी औरत ने कहा कि, “ अजगर जी, जाओ डॉक्टर से अपना इलाज कराओ ।” बस अजगर चल पड़ा अपना इलाज कराने डॉक्टर चिंता प्रकाश के पास । अब अजगर के पैर तो होते नहीं तो वह रेंगते हुए गया । रेंगते रेंगते वह थक गया तो वह एक पेड़ के नीचे सो गया । वह पेड़ एक अनार का था जिस में बहुत सारे लाल लाल फल लगे हुए थे ।

अनार का पेड़ और फल
अनार का पेड़ और फल

एक अनार का फल अजगर के सर पर गिरा तो अजगर उठ गया । उसने गप्प से अनार खा लिया । थोड़ी देर में उसे लगा कि मैं तो ठीक हो गया, पेट का दर्द भी ग़ायब । पर अब तक वो रेंगता रेंगता डॉक्टर के पास पहुँच गया था । डॉक्टर चिंता प्रकाश, जो एक चीता था, ने अजगर जी से कहा, “ महाशय, आप को क्या तकलीफ़ है ?”

अजगर ने कहा, “ मेरे पेट में दर्द था पर वो अब ग़ायब है, मैं बीमार था पर अब में ठीक हूँ ।

डॉक्टर चिंता प्रकाश ने कहा, “ ऐसा कैसे ? मैंने तो तुम्हें कोई दवा दी नहीं !”

अजगर ने कहा, “पता नहीं । मैं यहाँ रेंगते रेंगते आया हूँ और रास्ते में एक पेड़ के नीचे सोया था तो मुझ पर एक फल गिरा तो मैंने उसे खा लिया ।

चीते ने कहा, “वो फल कैसा था ?”

अजगर ने कहा, “वो लाल था और गोल था, उसके अंदर छोटे, छोटे, लाल, लाल, दाने थे ।वो बहुत मीठा था पर ऊपर का छाल कड़ा था ।”

चीते ने कहा, “ लगता है तुमने अनार खाया है, वह सेहत के लिए बहुत अच्छा होता है । इसके अलावा तुम रेंग के आए हो , इससे तुम्हारी एक्सर्सायज़ यानि कसरत हो गयी, इस लिए तुम ठीक हो गए । आगे से ध्यान रहे कुछ फल सब्ज़ी ज़रूर खाओ, साथ में कुछ कसरत भी किया करो । अब लाओ मेरी फ़ीस ।”

अजगर ने कहा, “फ़ीस किस बात की, में तो अपने आप ठीक हो गया हूँ ।”

डॉक्टर चिंता प्रकाश सोच में पड़ गया कि इस तरह सब जानवर अपना इलाज कर के खुद ठीक हो जाएँगे तो मेरा क्या होगा, मैं अपना पेट कैसे भरूँगा । बस चीते ने आव देखा ना ताव झट से अजगर का मुँह खोल कर उस में एक बर्गर डाल दिया । पेट में बर्गर जाते ही अजगर के पेट में ज़ोर ज़ोर से दर्द होने लगा ।

डॉक्टर चिंता प्रकाश

वो चिल्लाने लगा, “ अरे, मुझे कोई बचाओ । मेरे पेट में लगता है बहुत सारे चूहे उछल उछल कर मुझे काट रहे हैं । वह रोने लगा, “ ऊँ ऊँ ऊँ”

तब डॉक्टर चिंता प्रकाश ने कहा, “ दवा दूँ ?”

अजगर चीता की चालाकी समझ गया की वह उससे फ़ीस ऐंठना चाहता है ।

उसने कहा, “नहीं, मैं फिर रेंगता हुआ घर जाऊँगा और रास्ते में एक अनार खाऊँगा । मुझे तुम्हारी ज़रूरत नहीं।

बाक़ी जानवर, जो वहाँ बैठे थे, उन्होंने भी अजगर की बात सुनी तो वो ख़ुश हो गए । उन्होंने सोचा कि यह तो बहुत अच्छा उपाय है । अगर हम खुद अपने आप को ठीक रखेंगे तो चीते की मोटी फ़ीस नहीं देनी पड़ेगी । बस सब ने आव देखा ना ताव चल पड़े अजगर के पीछे पर थोड़ी दूर पर कि कहीं रास्ते में अजगर को भूख लग जायेगी तो वह हमें ना खा जाए । जब सब अनार के पेड़ के पास पहुँचे तो सब उछल उछल कर अनार तोड़ने लगे और गप्प गप्प खाने लगे ।

सब जानवर उछल उछल कर अनार का फल खाने लगे

अनार का पेड़ ख़ाली हो गया । उसने सोचा, “वाह रे वाह ! एक अनार का पेड़ और सौ बीमार ! अब अगर में बीमार पड़ूँगा तो क्या करूँगा ? मेरे पास तो एक भी फल नहीं बचा । उसे रोता देख कर एक तितली, जो उधर से उड़ रही थी, बोली, “ फ़िक्र ना करो भैया अनार के पेड़ । तुम्हारे ऊपर जो फूल बचे हैं I जल्दी ही अनार का पेड़ बन जाएँगे । वही तो हमारा काम है । हम एक पौधे के फूल से दूसरे पौधे को मिलते हैं जिससे वह जल्दी फल बन जाता है ।

तितली की सीख

यह सुन कर अनार का पेड़ बहुत ख़ुश हुआ । उसने सोचा, “कोई बात नहीं अगर जानवर सब अनार तोड़ कर के गए । अब वो ठीक हो जाएँगे । और मैं भी ठीक ही रहूँगा क्यूँकि जो दूसरे की मदद करता है उसको कोई चिंता नहीं सताती क्यूँकि उसकी मदद भगवान करता है ।हाँ जो बिना मतलब के दूसरों को लूटता है उसे भगवान ज़रूर सज़ा देते हैं जैसे की वह चीता जिसका नाम ही चिंता प्रकाश है । अब उसे इस बात की चिंता है कि सारे जानवर तो ठीक हो गए अब मेरे पास इलाज के लिए कौन आएगा और मेरा पेट कैसे भरेगा । इसीलिए कहते हैं,“ जैसी करनी वैसी भरनी ।”

B for ball balloon baby

Once upon a time there was a ball who wanted to be a balloon. He wanted to fly high up in the sky so that he could look down on the world and watch everyone from above.

BALL

He did not like to be kicked around or thrown or lie in a corner when no one was playing with him. All he wanted was to be outside, flying, floating gently in the breeze, just like a balloon does.

BALLOON

One day there was a new guest in the house. It was a baby. A chubby, cooing, cute little baby. When the baby became a little bigger, it started to crawl around. It would bump it’s body against the ball and move it. Sometimes it would sit on the floor and somebody would hand it the ball. Then the baby would hug the ball and hold it tight against its heart. The ball could hear the little heart beating, thump thump, and it’s own heart also went thump thump. It loved the baby.

BABY

Then the baby grew up a little more and started to toddle. It would toddle slowly and when the ball got in its way it would fall on it and clutch it with its tiny hands. The ball just loved being held by the baby.

THE BALL LOVED THE BABY

Some more time went by and the baby was one. There was a big birthday party to celebrate the baby’s turning one year old. Lots and lots of balloons were hung in the living room, The people who came also brought many colorful balloons. The ball was left in the corner. He felt no one was paying attention to him. All the children were grabbing the colorful balloons. Even the baby wanted to touch the balloons. They were so colorful and pretty.

BIRTHDAY PARTY !

Everyone sang, ‘Happy birthday to you,’ to the baby. Then they cut the cake. Lots and lots of photos were taken with the baby and the colorful balloons. Suddenly one naughty boy took the fork he was eating the cake with and pricked the balloon. The balloon burst with a bang so loudly that everyone jumped. The baby started crying.

THE BALLOON BURST

The mother took the baby in her arms and took it out to make it stop crying.Soon the other children followed, each carrying a balloon their hand. They all wanted a balloon. Nobody even thought of the ball lying in the corner. But as one of the children was passing by his foot kicked the ball and it rolled out and lay in the lawn looking at the children holding the colorful balloons.

Suddenly there was a gust of wind and it tugged the string of the balloon. One little child who was holding the string of a red balloon let it go. The balloon floated up in the sky looking so pretty against the blue sky. So the other children let their balloons go. They all floated up and up and up till they vanished from sight. Now the children had nothing.

THE BALLOONS LOOKED SO PRETTY

Then one of the boys saw the ball and ran and picked it up. He threw the ball to his friend who threw it to his friend. All the children threw the ball to each other. Then they took the ball and gave it back to the mother because it was time for them to go. They had had a lot of fun because of the ball.

THE CHILDREN HAD A LOT OF FUN

The mother waved goodbye to the children. Then she took the ball and gave it to the baby who hugged it to its heart and cooed with happiness. The ball was happy too. He no longer wanted to be a balloon. Balloons only look pretty, make a loud noise when they burst and frighten babies and do not stay with you if you let go of their string. But a ball is very useful. You can play with it.

IT’S BETTER TO BE USEFUL

THE END

# #stories #comedy #satire #dance #movies #entertainment #films #shortfilm

Mayura wanted to make the world more beautiful but before he could ruin his beautiful feathers by using them as a dust rag Peekaboo arrived to knock some sense into his peacock brain.
He also gifted him a new pair of boots to hide his ugly legs ! What are friends for, after all , hmmm.

 

AND HERE’S THE STORY ON WHICH THIS MOVIE IS BASED

THE PALACE WAS GRAND AND MAYURA STROLLING IN THE GROUNDS WAS PREOCCUPIED WITH HIS THOUGHTS. 
“WHAT IS THE POINT OF LIFE ? 
“DO WE HAVE A PURPOSE ?”        

    “LOOK AT MY FEATHERS, THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL, MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN THE RAINBOW. AND YET, DO THEY HAVE A PURPOSE”          
   “SHOULDN’T ALL BEAUTY HAVE A PURPOSE?”

MAYURA KEPT WALKING, THINKING PROFOUND THOUGHTS. HE ALMOST HAD AN ACCIDENT. THE CAR SCREECHED TO A HALT. MAYURA QUICKLY RACED ACROSS, HIS HEART BEATING AND FLUTTERING JUST LIKE HIS BEAUTIFUL TAIL FEATHERS.

BUT THIS LITTLE BRUSH WITH DEATH GOT HIM THINKING EVEN MORE DEEPLY.      
  “WE ALL LEAVE THIS WORLD ONE DAY. SO SHOULDN’T ONE LEAVE IT A BETTER PLACE, A CLEANER PLACE ?”

MAYURA WAS SO TAKEN UP WITH THIS THOUGHT HE IMMEDIATELY STARTED USING HIS FEATHERS AS A BROOM AND STARTED CLEANING UP THE PALACE LAWNS,DUSTING AWAY THE LEAVES AND PUTTING THEM AWAY IN A GARBAGE BAG. HE WAS SO BUSY SWEEPING AND CLEANING,HE DIDN’T NOTICE ANOTHER PEACOCK SITTING GRANDLY ON A BENCH LOOKING AT HIM SARDONICALLY.                                                      


“WHAT ARE YOU DOING ?” HE SAID        

 “CLEANING UP,” SAID MAYURA, NOT MISSING A BEAT AS HE DUSTED AND SWEPT THE DIRT WITH HIS BEAUTIFUL TAIL FEATHERS.        

   “WELL, THAT’S JUST FINE AND DANDY BUT WHY USE YOUR TAIL FEATHERS FOR IT ? AND WHY NOT GET ONE OF YOUR PALACE MINIONS ? IT’S NOT YOUR JOB ! “ 

TO BE CONTINUED….. ( BUT YOU CAN SEE THE MOVIE )
