Kalagarh...ek alag hi duniya

kalagarh - Jim Corbett National park range me qudrat ki god me Pahaadon k daaman me basa ek chhota sa town.  Jo Ramganga Dam (kalagarh Dam) aur apni qudraty khubsurty k liye jana jata hai..yahi wo jagah hai Jahan maine aankh kholi aur zindagi ki shuruaat ki..haseen tareen wo 8 saal jo kabhi bhulaye na ja ske..zehen k ksi  koney me naqsh hokr reh gye..wo ghar ..wo sadken..wo madarsa .. school.. wo log.. sb usi shakl me zehen me aaj bhi jawaa'n hain!!
Kalagarh ka wajood ek Government Project(Ram Ganga Pariyojna)  ki shakl me amal me aya, mitti/rocks se bana ye Asia ka sbse bada dam hai jo aas paas k elaaqon me paani or bijli ki supply faraham karata hai! Gov. project k chaltey  yahan ki taqreeban aabadi  govt employees per hi mushtamil hai or zyada badi aabadi na hone ki wajah se sabhi ek dusrey se aashna hain.
Ek post office, ek State Bank , ek sarkari  Hospital, 5 school, 4 office buildings, 3 colonies, ek masjid 2 mandir or ek market..bas isi me simti hai kalagarh ki chhoti c dunya :)
Is sarzamee'n pe Mra qayaam 1985 se 1993 tak rha..Ye doordarshan or vivid bharti ka daur tha, TV black n white se color me muntaqil ho rha tha. jassa or tara 2 local dish cable provider the jo haftey me ek new film lagatey the or us ek film ka bhi alag hi craze hota tha :D  pahadi silsila hone ki wajah se signals aksar weak hi rehte the.. ya bilkul nadaarad.. to antenna ka bda dakhal tha..or colony me sbse bada or sbse ooncha antenna hmarey ghar lga tha jisey chaar taraf se wires se bandha gya tha or usper  bhi boosters lagaye gye the lkn signals phir bhi nakhrey krtey the aaney me.

Tipu sultan..
Or han sunday me 4:30 pe hindi feature film..jiske beech me hindi k pradeshik samachar phr urdu ki khabren Salma Sultana pesh krty thin :D  us darmiyaan me aap chahe to market bhi ghoom ayen!! us wqt k do DD news reader k naam or yaad aa rhe hain, ved prakash or shammi narang!!

Facebook/emails ka  zamana nahi tha.. internet naam se hi  waaqfiyat nahi thi..post man ki badi ehmiyat  thi. Outdoor games hi sbki pasnd  the jaise badminton ,kabaddi, gittiphod, cricket, chor sipahi or cycle ka tyre bhi khub daudaya sadak pe dande se!!  50 piase kiraye pe comics bhi  khub padhin aur ek rupya dekr video game(mario/contra/roadrash) bhi  khela aur papa se maar bhi khub khaaee :D
Computer ksi k ghar me to kiya offices tak ko mayyassar nahi tha!! Papa k office aksr ghumne jana hota tha ,sara office daftri files k dher taley daba hua…or background me typewriter ki khat khat ki awaazen.. mobile fones ka to naam tha  na khyaal..sirf  offices ko rotary dialing fones mayassar the.
In 8 saalon me kalagarh me na to maine kabhi koi ladai jhagda dekha,na police ki shakal na hi koi chori jaisi khabr. Ksi tarah ka koi dar nahi tha insaan ko insaan se!! han agr kabhi kabhi dar lgta tha to jangli janwaron se jo kabhi kabhi colony ki traf nikal ate the.  Bandar/langoor  or insaano ka to choli daman ka saath..  bht qisssey hn bandaron or insano k  jo wahan rehney wale har shakhs k sath pesh aye or aate hi rehte hain.
Wahan rehte hue madarse me maulvi sahab se dini taleem li, urdu pdhna likhna seekhi..jo unhone padha dya naqsh hogya aur aaj tk kaam aarha hai or rehti zindagi tak ayega!!  Unka khauf.. unka danda aaj bhi yaad hai aur aaj bhi unhe dil se yaad krta hu or izzat bakhshta hu :)
Barsaat ka mausam kalagarh me waqaee khushgawaar lgta tha…mitti k kachchey naalon me ghaans pe behta saaaf shaffaaf paani..  chaaron trf haryali..dhuley huye harey bharey pahaad.. aaludgii se paak aab-o-hawa…dilfareb manzar hota tha :)
Colony se 5km k faasle pe Ramganga river pe dam tameer kiya gya.. jahan sirf Gov. officials ko hi jane ki ijazat hai ya authority se special permission per hi aap ghum skte hain. Dam tak  pahuchne ka raasta bhi kam dilchasp nahi. Ghumaavdaaar raaston pe ek traf khaaee dusry traf pahad.. ye mitti pe bana hua Asia ka sbse bda dam hai jo 198MW electricity paida krta hai 3 turbines ki madad se,aur  aas paas k elaaqo ko bijli faraham krta hai or  aabpaashi k liye nehar k zariye paani muhayya krata hai!!  Dam se hi ek surang paani k ander door tk gyi hai jiske ander jaane pe dil ki dhadkaney seene ki deewaron se takraty hain!! Kalagarh dam ki sair ksi adventure se kam nahi.
Kalagarh ki Aksaryiat aabadi non muslims ki thi but sabhi log bht aman sukun se rehte the ,kabhi hindu-muslim nahi suna wahan rehte huye, sabka uthna bethna rehna sath sath hi tha..jab wahan se ksi ka transfer hota to ek gham ka mahol us quarter me.. hafte bhar pehle se us ghar me khana bnna band ho jata!! Ados pados me daawaten hi itny hoti thin k apne ghar khana baney kahan se :D  or jo din vidaaee ka hota tha us din tamam colony us ek quarter pe hoti thi..sabki aankhen nam :( alvidaaeeyya…
ek traf jahan 1992 me mulk jal rha tha wahin kalagarh us asar se be-asar tha.  Kalagarh k logon jaisi muhabbat wahan se niklne k bad maine aaj tak kahin nahi dekhi. Ek alag hi rishta hai wahan k logon k darmiyaan jo ek kalagarh wala hi mehsoos kr skta hai. aksar un dino ki yaad aajaty hai or ek ek cheez nazar me ghumne lagty hai!!
lekin ye dekh kr afsos hota hai k is wqt jo kalagarh ki maujooda soorat-e-haal hai wo kisi purani jarjar emarat ki si hai..pta nahi kab gir jaye!! jaise koi chaman ujad rha ho… or  aaj jab ye dil-shikasta  khabar suni k supreme court ka order aagya hai, 6 months k ander colonies tod di jayngi  plantation kar diya jyga aur tamam kalagarh ko forest department k hawaley..Corbett Tiger Reserve  ko de diya jyga to dil bujh  gya :( sb kuchh ek bar phr yaad aaney lga….mra ghar..mra school..wo raastey..wo log...mra kalagarh!!

                              will Miss u kalagarh n kalagarians……….always!!
