kunti ka dharmaprem

pandav vahaan se bach nikale aur apane ap ko chhupakar ek chakra nagari mean ek bahran ke ghar jakar rahane lage. us nagari mean bak namak ek balavan rakshas rahata tha. usane aisa niyam bana rakha tha ki nagar ke pratyek ghar se roj bari-bari se ek adami usake liye vividh bhojan-samagri lekar usake pas jay. vah dusht any samagriyoan ke sath us adami ko bhi kha jata tha. jis brahman ke ghar pandav tike the, ek din us ki bari a gayi. brahman ke ghar kuharam mach gaya. brahman, usaki patni, kanya aur putr apane-apane pran dekar doosare tinoan ko bachane ka agrah karane lage. us din dharmaraj adi charoan bhaee to bhiksha ke liye bahar gaye the. dere par kunti aur bhimasen the. kunti ne sari batean sunian to unaka hriday daya se bhar gaya. unhoanne jakar brahman-parivar se hansakar kaha 'maharaj' ap log rote kyoan haian? jara bhi chinta n karean. hamalog apake ashrayean mean rahate haian. kunti ne kaha mere paanch l dake haian? unamean sean maian ek l dake ko bhojan-samagri dekar rakshas ke yahaan bhej dooangi.' brahman ne kunti se kaha 'mata' aisa kaise ho sakata hai? ap hamare atithi hai. apane pran bachane ke liye ham atithi ka pran lean, aisa adharm hamase kabhi nahian ho sakata. kunti ne brahman ko samajha kar kaha pandit ji ap jara bhi chinta n karean. mera l daka bhimasen bhi b da bali hai. usane ab tak kitane hi rakshasoan ko mara hai vah avashy hi us rakshas ko mar dega. kunti ne brahman se kaha ham log sab ek sath rahakar ek hi parivar ke-se ho gaye hai. ap vriddh haian, bhim javan hai. phir ham apake ashray mean rahate haian. aisi avastha mean ap vriddh aur poojaniy hokar bhi rakshas ke muanh mean jayan aur mera l daka javan aur balavan hokar ghar mean muanh chhipaye baitha rahe, yah kaise ho sakata hai? brahman-parivar ne kisi tahar bhi jab kunti ka prastav svikar nahian kiya, tab kunti devi ne unhean har tarah se yah vishvas dilaya ki bhimasen avashy hi rakshas ko marakar aega aur kaha ki bhoodev ap yadi nahian maneange to bhimasen apako balapoorvak rokakar chala jayaga. maian use nishchay bhejooangi aur ap use rok nahian sakeange.'
