The Rescue

Updated: Sep 14, 2022


Ye baat 2019 ki hai jab Kerala mein flood aayi thi. Do Army waalo ka bataya ye kissa hai. Aur chunki Army ka hai toh naam badal dete hain. Inka naam hum badal kar Suresh aur Mahesh rakh lete hain.


So 2019 mein Suresh aur Mahesh rescue duty par tthe. Inka kaam hota tha apni duty ke time par boat lekar flood effected area mein jaana aur jo log abhi bhi gaaon mein phanse ho unhein rescue karna. Inki boat darasal ek raft hoti thi, jismein rescue ke tools, khaane ka samaan, blankets aur ek badi si light hoti thi. Light isliye kyuki in dono ki duty raat ki hoti thi.

.

"Dono ghar ki chhat par chadhe aur kulhaadi se uski tiles mein chhed karne lage. Aur tab ghar ke andar unhone jhaanka to paaya - Andar ek 60-70 saal ki aurat kursi par khadi thi, aur uske gale tak paani tha."

Toh ek aisi hi raat ye dono apne quadrant mein logo ko dhoondh rahe tthe. Malyali inhein aati nahi thi lekin kuchh phrases inhone seekh liye tthe. Unmein se ek tha, “Koi hai kya?” jise se baar baar Malyali mein repeat karte jaa rahe tthe.


Kaafi time tak inhein koi response nahi aaya. Par tab Mahesh ne notice kiya ki kuchh doori par ek ghar ki chhat par ek aadmi khada hai. Mahesh ne raft ki light udhar ki, tab dono ne dekha ki ek aadmi shirt aur dhoti mein ghar ki chhat pe khadaa hai. In dono ne usay awaaz lagaayi toh wo kuchh bola nahi, par ane ghar ki chhat ki taraf ishara karta raha.


Dono raft lekar us ghar tak pahunche. Ghar ke saamne kaafi kabaad jamaa ho chuka tha toh inhein raft ek gully ghuma ke laani padi. Jab ye us ghar ke doosri taraf pahunche toh wo aadmi gaayab ho chuka tha.


Ye dono ghar ki chhat par chadhe aur kulhaadi se uski tiles mein chhed karne lage. Aur tab ghar ke andar unhone jhaanka to paaya -

Andar ek 60-70 saal ki aurat kursi par khadi thi, aur uske gale tak paani tha. In dono ne usay baahar nikala. Wo Malyaalam mein inhein shaayad duaa deti rahi aur baar baar in dono ke sar pe haath lagaati rahi. In dono ne us se poochhne ki koshish ki ki wo aadmi kahaan hai jisne inhein bulaya tha, par wo aurat inki baat samajh hi na paayi.


Ye usay lekar base pahunche jahaan us aurat ko injection wagareh lag rahe tthe. Tab Suresh ne ek nurse se kahaa ki is aurat se us aadmi ke baare mein poochhe. Nurse inki baato ko translate karti rahi.


Suresh ne poochha, “Wo aadmi kahaan hai jo aapki chhat pe khada tha?”

Aurat ne kahaa, “Kaun aadmi? Main ghar mein akeli thi.”


Suresh ne aadmi ko describe karte huay bataya ki usne ek phool waali shirt aur safed dhoti pehen rakhi thi. Jise sunkar aurat ki aankho mein aansu aa gaye.


Usne bataya ki jise wo describe kar raha hai wo uska beta Dheeman tha. Jiski maut 2 saal pehle ek accident mein ho gayi thi. Aurat ne rote rote kahaa, ki uska beta marne ke baad bhi apni maa ki jaan bachaa gayaa.
