Woh din jab mere daddu ki maut hui, ham sab uske kamre mein Scottstown General Hospital mein thay. Tab mere neem mukhalif se pehle se hi seminary school se graduation kiya tha aur mein ek town ke Christian church mein pastor ban gaya tha. Jab ham us hospital bed ke aas paas jama ho gaye, toh ham sab ko maloom tha ke ab Grandpa Henry ka waqt aagaya hai. Ham baatein kar rahe thay ke tabhi mere daddu ne beech mein hi baat rukwa di aur kaha ke meri family kamre se bahar jaayein, lekin mein rahun. Jab mere maa baap, dadi, aur bhai behn bahar chale gaye, to mere daddu ne mujhse kaha, Nicolas, mujhe tumse kuch kehna hai. Main ne…

Mere zehan mein usne yeh kehne par buhat saare khyaal aaye. Kya shayad usne apni shadi ke dino mein kisi ke saath kuch galat kiya tha? Kya college ya Navy mein kisi ko qatal kar diya tha?

Yeh badi gunaah kya hai? mein ne poocha.

Mere daddu ne khaansi ki aur kaha, Jab mein sirf 10 saal ka tha, toh mein ne andhere ki taqat ko apni taraf kheench liya tha, aik guzaarish ke liye.

Andhere ki taqat? mein ne poocha.

Zyada tar, aik entiti jisay Dark Man kehte hain. Abhi woh us kone mein hai, mera jism apni khidmaton ke badle mein le lene ke liye intezaar kar raha hai.

Mein herat se khara tha. Mere daddu to duniya ke sab se mazhabi insaan nahi thay, yeh to bilkul clear tha. Lekin unse sunna ke unhon ne bachpan mein aik bhoot ko bulaaya tha, yeh sach mein mushkil tha. Mere daddu ne jari rakha.

Tumhein maloom hai ke mere bhai aur behan dono ajeeb taur par kisi hadse mein chale gaye thay? Mere bhai Rupert ek car hadse mein guzar gaye aur meri behan Olivia ki raat mein qatal ho gayi, shayad uske ex-boyfriend Joey Wilson ne. Joey ne breakup ke baad se uski peecha ki thi, aur aik dafa woh meri great grandparents ke ghar par aaya tha, jab tak mere great grandfather ne usko pant ki seat par bahar phenka kar jane se mana nahi kiya aur wo apni maut ki dhamkiyaan dene ke liye wahaan se gaya, apni dhamkian dete hue.

Waise, ye sab Dark Man ki karnamaat thi, usne kaha. Usne phir kuch baar khansi ki, phir apni kahani jaari ki, aur yeh wahi kahani hai jo usne sunayi:

Mere maan-baap kabhi mujhe paida karne ka iraada nahin rakhte thay aur is nateeje mein mujh se emotional tor par laparwah rahe. Un ke liye, mein woh shuda bacha tha. Chaahe mere maan-baap ne kabhi aisa nahin kaha, lekin mujhe bachpan se hi yeh baat saaf ho gayi. Rupert aur Olivia ko saari tawajjo, saari taazi khilonay aur khushiyan milti thi – janamdin aur Christmas par, naye kapde, sab kuch. Jab meri baari aati, to mere maan-baap ne sirf zaroori zaroorat ki puri ki.

Meri saari khilonay aur kapde woh the jo mere bade bhai ne pehna tha aur unka toot chuka tha. Mere maan-baap lagta tha mujhe ya mere kaamon ko kabhi notice nahin karte thay. Iske alawa, Rupert aur Olivia kabhi bhi mujhe bachpani khushiyan batne ya meri saath kuch share karne ki koshish nahin ki. Unhe khud par jyada ghamand tha aur mere maan-baap ki tawajjo mein dooba rahe the, jabki mein bekarar tha. Ek din, 1953 mein, maine akhir kar toota.

Us zamane mein, mere ek dost the jinka naam Sam Ludlow tha. Sam wo ajeeb bacha tha jo school mein sab, teachers se lekar, sab ignore karne ki puri koshish karte thay. Sam ki maa ka koi zikar nahin tha, lekin maine kabhi pucha nahin, aur uske baap ko bhi uske dosto ke saath sharab peene ya poker khelne mein hi waqt guzarta tha, uske liye dyan dene ka waqt nahin tha.

Hum school se ghar ja rahe thay to maine Sam se kaha, ‘Main aur seh nahin sakta! Mere maan-baap mujhe kis tarah se ek pareshani ki tarah treat karte hain, mere bhai aur behan ko jo chahiye woh sab milta hai aur woh bhi bina kisi chinta ke ki unka chota bhai ek purane sweater ki tarah side mein rakha ja raha hai.’

Sam ne phir pucha, ‘To phir tum iske liye kya plan kar rahe ho?’

Maine kandhe ko hilaya. ‘Shayad bhag kar circus mein join ho jaun, ya phir cabin boy ki tarah samundar par chala jaun,’ maine use bataya.

Sam ne thoda socha lagaya aur phir bola, ‘Tumhe pata hai, ek aur tareeka hai bhagne ke liye.’

‘Oh, aur woh kya hai?’ maine pucha. Sam muskuraya aur bola, ‘Dark Man ka ritual.’

‘Dark Man?’ maine pucha.

‘Haan, Dark Man ka ritual,’ Sam bola.

Sam ne bataya kaise Dark Man ek aisa shakti hai jo bulane wale ke ichhaye anusaar kisi ko gayab kar sakta hai.

‘Aur tumne Dark Man ke bare mein kahaan se suna?’ maine pucha. Sam phir se muskuraya.

‘Ek kitaab se, Spells, Summoning and Rituals, maine use Hanson’s Oddities se kuch mahine pehle khareedi thi, jo Third Street par thi.’

Hanson’s Oddities ne hamare sheher mein 1951 mein kadam rakha tha. Building jahan Hanson’s ne apna dukaan khola tha, woh pehle ek jooton ki dukaan thi, lekin us dukaan ke buzurg malik, Mr. aur Mrs. Beecher, ne bina kisi taqrar ke gayab ho gaye the. Dukaan mein kaam karne wale do employees ne ek din kaam par aane par darwaza band, lights band aur buzurg couple ko kahin bhi nahi dekha. Police kuch hafton tak talash ki lekin kuch nahin mila.

Search band hone ke baad hi, Mr. Hanson ne woh building khareedi aur apna monsters ka dukaan khola. Sheher ke kai log Mr. Hanson se sawdhan the. Kai logon ne socha ke shayad unka kuch taaluk Beecher’s ki gayab hony se hai, aur unke dukaan ke window display mein kuch aisa tha jo ek horror film se milta julta tha, isne unki maamlaat ko aur bhi khatarnaak bana diya.

Yeh kitaab kahan se mili thi? maine poocha.

Andherey Ka Aadmi | The Dark Man | Hindi Horror Stories

November mein, jab mere abbu ek maheenay mein ek dafa apni all-night poker session khel rahe thay. Main ek station ke siding par khadi ek sandook par chadh jaata aur kahin bhi le jaata, to mere abbu ko shayad hi khabar hoti, ya phir unko shayad hi fikar hoti. Sam ne kaha. Ab mujhe pata tha ke Sam alag alag tarah ka banda hota tha. Yaar, uske paas ek kutta bhi tha jise Cat naam diya tha, woh horror aur suspense comics padhta tha jaise ke Tales from the Crypt aur Shock and Suspense, superhero comics jaise ke Superman ya Batman ki bajaye jo ke zyadatar ladke padhte thay, aur ek dafa school jane ke liye ek bright sunny din par rain boots pehn ke aaya tha bas is liye ke use aesa hi mann kiya. Lekin witchcraft jaisi cheezon mein pohnchna kuch aur hi tha.

Kaise pata hai tujhe ke yeh Dark Man ka ritual kaam karega? maine poocha.

Asaan hai, maine khud usse Christmas break se pehle bulaya tha, Sam ne jawab diya.

Aur tumne Dark Man se kis ko hatwaane ke liye bulaya tha? maine poocha.

Sam muskuraya aur aik purani adat se baat ki, Hamari teacher, Miss Gibson ko. Main toh dar gaya. Miss Gibson school ki sab se buri teacher thi, yeh toh bilkul clear tha. Woh ek budhi aurat thi jiska chehra aesa lagta tha ke puri zindagi woh sirf lemon juice peeti rahi ho, aur woh kitni ziddi aur badmaash thi, is se baraaz aaya nahi. School wale aik raaz thay ke woh teachers ko kyun rakhte thay. Dono Sam aur main unlucky thay ke humne uski class mein dakhla liya tha, jahan woh pehli nazar mein hi hume pasand nahi aayi, lekin Sam ko woh sab se ziada nafrat karti thi.

Uski zabardast hukoomat Christmas break mein 1952 mein khatam ho gayi, jab uski bari haveli mein aik aag lagi aur uske ghar ko kaali aatish aur raakh mein tabdeel kar diya. Uski laash firefighters ne dhoondi thi aur woh sirf aik kaali haddi ki tarah thi. Tum kehna chahte ho ke tumne Dark Man ko humari teacher ko maarne ke liye istemaal kiya? maine zor se saans li.

Sam ne sir hila diya. Jab maine kaha ke Dark Man logon ko duniya se gayab kar deta hai, toh tumne kya socha? Unko mendak bana deta hai, unko kisi aur duniya mein le jaata hai, ya kuch Hollywood bakwaas? Sam ne poocha.

Main pehle toh thora dar gaya, lekin bewaqoofon ki tarah, maine faisla kiya ke ismein hissa loon. Oh, kitna chahta hoon ke maine ye faisla na kiya hota. Hum Sam ke ghar gaye jahan usne khud andar chala gaya. Sam ek purane aur toote phoote ghar mein rehta tha, jo ke sheher ke shady hisse mein tha. Iske aspaas factories aur train yards thay. Haan, kisi ko ghar par nahi tha. Uske abbu ek purani steel mill mein kaam kar rahe thay jo ke saalon pehle girwa di gayi thi. Hum uske kamre tak gaye jahan usne apne bookshelf se woh laanati kitab nikali. Yeh aik qadeem cheez thi, jiska cover kaala leather se bandha hua tha aur uske upar sonay ke alfaazon mein title likha tha, jiske neeche aik pentagram tha. Kisi author ka naam nahi tha, sirf title aur ishara.

Yeh bohot purani lagti hai, maine kaha. Sam muskuraya.

Mr. Hanson ne kaha ke isko 1700 ke aas-pass likha gaya tha, lekin usko likhnay wale ka naam ya uski asal wajah kisi ko nahi pata, lekin unhon ne mujhe sirf aik dollar mein bech diya, Sam ne kaha. Phir usne aik red bookmark se mark kiya hua ek page dikhaya. Is par Dark Man ka ritual likha tha. Hidayat asaan thay. Aik dark room mein aik aaina ke samne khade ho jao, dono taraf se do kaale candles jala do aur ek incantation parh do.

Incantation yeh thi:

Dark Man, Dark Man, mere paas aa,

Taaki meri aankhen tujhe dekh saken.

Dark Man, Dark Man,

Jise mein ab aur dekhna nahi chahta.

Andherey Ka Aadmi | The Dark Man | Hindi Horror Stories

Us waqt, Andhera Aadmi tasveer mein dikhai dene laga aur aapko us shakhs ka naam kehna tha, ya mere case mein, logon ka naam jo aap chahte the ke chale jayein. Phir das seconds intezar karna tha, phir mombatiyon ko bujhana aur lights on kar dena. Sam ke paas ab bhi wohi kaale mombatiyan thi jo usne woh kaam kiya tha, isliye humne unhi ka istemal kiya. Maine jadoo kaha aur jo cheez maine dekhi, woh ab is kamre mein hai. Yeh tha ek admi ka kaala bust jo topi pehn kar tha.

Woh Sam ke toilet ke andhere se bhi zyada kaala tha. Koi khaas pehchan nahi, bas ek kaala sa shape. Maine apne bhai aur behan ke naam liye aur das seconds ke baad mombatiyan bujha di. Jab Rupert ne kuch dinon baad woh amal kiya, to mere ma-baap itna prabhavit hue ki woh weeks tak ek doosre se baat nahi kiye, bas apni roz ki zindagi jeet rahe the jaise behtehaal zinda laashen. Phir jab unki dukh se nikal gaye, to Olivia ko uski bed pe qatl kiya gaya, solar network se lekar uski kamar ke upar tak kaat diya gaya, aur beshak, mere ma-baap wapas se apne dukh ko chupchap bardaash karne lage.

Dukh guzarne ke baad, mujhe woh attention mili jo main kabhi chahta tha. Baad mein pata chala ke main ab kya jaanta hoon. Dekho, maine 7th grade ko skip kar liya tha, jisse mujhe 1960 mein high school se pass hone ka mauka mila. Phir maine Michigan State mein admission liya aur Navy mein shaamil hua. Lekin Sam, doosri taraf, seventh grade ki parhai complete ki aur 1961 mein high school pass hua, woh saal jab main normally graduate hota. Sam college nahi gaya. Balki, woh professional baseball mein kareer banane ki koshish karne gaya. Sam khud ko ek aur Mickey Mantle samajhta tha. Lekin usne kabhi minors se bahar nahi nikla, aur aakhir mein apne baseball bat ko ek rifle ke liye badal liya jab woh Army mein shaamil hua. Uske baad maine Sam se touch khota diya.

Maine tumhari dadi se Norfolk mein mili, shaadi ki aur jab discharge hua toh yahan wapas aa gaya aur shahar mein ek Certified Public Accountant ki naukri mili. Yeh baat hai early fall, 1968 ki jab mujhe apne bachpan ke ek aur dost, Lester Green ke saath commuter train mein baithe hue dekha. Lester aur uski family woh kam aise African-American the jo us waqt yahan rehte the. Mujh jaise, Lester ne bhi college kiya aur jaise Sam, usne bhi Army mein shaamil kiya.

Achhi khabar badhi tab jab mujhe pata chala ke Sam ko Vietnam mein maar diya gaya tha. Lester ke mutabik, woh aur Sam ek hi platoon mein the aur ek jungle mein khula hua tha jab Viet Cong ne un par hamla kiya. Attack se pehle hi, Sam ne apna bandook girakar bhagte hue kuch aisa kaha jaise ‘Andhera Aadmi’. Kuch pal baad ek Viet Cong sniper ne usse peeth par goli maari, aur woh turant mar gaya.

Lester aur baaki Army waale maante the ke Sam ne jise ‘Andhera Aadmi’ kaha, woh ek Viet Cong sipahi tha jo Sam ke saamne darpok ban gaya tha aur usne dushman se seedhe samna karne ki bajaye bhag gaya tha. Platoon ke leader hone ke nate, Lester ko Sam ke baap ko yeh khabar sunani thi. Jab maine Sam ke ‘Andhera Aadmi’ ke baare mein suna, toh mujhe chinta hui, isliye maine Lester se kaha ke main bhi sath chal sakta hoon, agar yeh unka official kaam mein dakhal nahi karta. Maine unse wada kiya ke main aisa nahi karunga.

Jab Lester Sam ke walid se baat karte thay, jo na sirf apne bete ki maut par yakeen karne se inkaar karte thay, balkay apne bete ko kamzor samajhte thay, aur Lester ko jhoot bolne par daantte thay, to main Sam ke purane kamre ki taraf chala gaya. Woh waisa hi tha jaisa tha jab maine use akhiri baar dekha tha. Baseball Penates aur purane horror movie posters diwarein saja rakhi thien, aur uske bookcase ke upar woh kaala kitab thi. Usme woh laal bookmark tha jo Dark Man ritual ki woh page mark karta tha. Maine kitab uthayi aur us page ko khola. Mujhe nahi pata tha ki mujhe kya milega, lekin jab maine dekha, to main samajh gaya ke main kabhi bhi waisa nahi rah sakta. Page ke neeche, fine print mein, ek chetavni thi.

Usme likha tha:

‘Chetavni: Dark Man aapki atma ki shakl mein payment maangega. Dark Man kisi bhi mukarrar jadwal par kaam nahi karta aur aapse maangne ke liye ek hafta ya das saal baad bhi aa sakta hai. Chahe Dark Man kabhi bhi maange, aap usse bach nahi sakte, chahe aap kahin bhi jaayein aur kitni bhi dooriyan tay kar lein, Dark Man jab bhi chaahe apna vasooli kar lega, kahin bhi aap kaise bhi jaayein.’

Yeh padh kar, mujhe yakeen ho gaya ke meri tabahi likhi thi. Main ne yeh kitab Hanson’s Oddities wapas karne ki koshish ki, jo tab bhi chal raha tha, lekin Mr. Hanson ne kaha ke kitab pichle malik ko wapas nahi ki ja sakti, aur kyunki maine Sam ke ghar se le li thi, to woh meri ho gayi.

Usne mujhe bataya ke kitab sirf ek paadri ke haath se tabah ho sakti hai. Main ne use jhoota kaha aur use yeh wapas karne par majboor kiya. Agli subah maine use apne takia ke neeche paaya. Fir se maine use Hanson’s ke paas le gaya aur mujhe wahi jawab mila. Main ne use alley ke kachre mein phenk diya lekin agle subah use apne moze ke dabbe mein phir se paaya. Pehle to maine socha ke Mr. Hanson mujhe dhoond raha hai aur kitab ghar ke andar daal raha hai, lekin jitna bhi sochta gaya, utna hi woh samajh mein nahi aaya. Usne apne dukaan se nikalna tha, mujhe ghar tak follow karna tha, mere ghar mein aane ka tareeka dhoondna tha, Hercules, hamare Doberman Rottweiler mix ko kaise paar karna tha, aur kitab ko uske pasandeeda jagah par rakhna tha.

Maine kai baar koshish ki isse chhodne ki, maine use nadi mein phenk diya, ek khet mein dafan kiya, maine use Scottstown Mall banate samay ek cement mixer mein bhi phenk diya. Har baar jab main isse chhod deta, to maine use ghar ke ajeeb jagahon par paaya. Main socha paadri se tabah karwane ke baare mein bhi, aur main almost ise Saint George Cathedral le jaane wala tha paadri ke paas, lekin akhiri pal mein darr gaya ke paadri ko pata chal jayega ke maine itne saalon pehle kya kiya tha, aur police se sampark kar lega. Yeh to mujhe ajeeb lagta hai, lekin us samay mujhe apne kiye se saamna nahi karna tha, isiliye maine ise apne almari ke peeche ke crawl space mein rakh diya, jahan ye saalon saal raha.

Is kahani ko sun kar main uss kahani par bewaqoofana andaaz mein ghoorta raha. Mere dada phir se bolay. Mujhe wada karo ke jab main chala jaoon to Spells, Summoning and Rituals ko tabah karoge, unhon ne kaha, meri ungliyon ko dabate hue. Zaroor, dada Henry, main karunga, maine kaha. Tum ek ache jawan ho, Nicolas, mere dada ne kaha, phir woh kone ki taraf dekhe aur kaha, Theek hai, main ab tayyar hoon, aur uske sath hi unhone apni aakhri saans li.

Janaze ke baad, main unke ghar gaya. Main ne unke kamre ki taraf raasta banaya aur unke purane golf clubs ko hatakar, maine crawl space ko dhoondha, aur usmein, maine woh kitaab dhoondhi. Jab maine us dhool se dhaki hui kitaab ko dekha, to meri dada ki kahaniyon par koi shak khatam ho gaya. Main ne usse seminary school le gaya, jahan maine ek purane professor, Reverend Smith, ki madad se us kitaab ko tabah karne mein madad mangi.

Humne use campus chapel ke peeche le jakar, sanctuary ke safed mombatiyon se kitaab Spells, Summoning and Rituals ko jala diya, jab tak kuch bacha hi nahi.

Khatam!!
