The Value Of Man Summary in Hindi
– Govind Jha
यह एक अत्यन्त रोचक कहानी है जिसे एकांकी के माध्यम से प्रस्तुत किया गया है। कहानी में शिकायकर्ता घासीराम है। मोहन उसका लड़का है और अपराधी कन्छेदी है। नेताजी और मास्टर जी को गवाह के रूप में पेश किया गया है। कहानी घासीराम के गधे को चुराने को लेकर है। घासीराम ने गधे चुराने की घटना को पंचायत के सामने रखा और उससे न्याय की गुहार लगायी। पंचों के सामने न्याय तक पहुँचना इसलिए कठिन हो गया क्योंकि मास्टर जी और नेताजी जैसे गवाह भी घासीराम के खिलाफ हो गये।
घासीराम को न्याय मिलने की आशा समाप्त हो गयी और वह पंचायत छोड़कर जाने लगा। किन्तु तभी घासीराम के पुत्र द्वारा एक गधे को पेश करने से सारा माहौल बदल गया। यह सिद्ध हो गया कि कन्छेदी अपराधी है और मास्टर जी व नेताजी ने झूठी गवाही दी है। अन्त में यह सिद्ध हो जाता है कि विशेष परिस्थितियों में गधे की कीमत मनुष्य से अधिक होती है। वर्तमान समय पर यह कहानी एक गहरा व्यंग्य है, जो हमें यह शिक्षा भी देती है कि मनुष्य तो झूठ बोल सकता है किन्तु एक जानवर कभी झूठ नहीं बोल सकता।
