(एउटा तीतो सत्य)
धेरै धेरै वर्ष अघि मेरो आपाले ९० भा रु मा दुई किस्तामा तिर्ने गरी एउटा गिटार किनिदिनुभयो, प्रत्येक चोटि ४५, ४५ तिर्ने गरी ।
म धेरै फुच्चे थिएँ, तर धेरै उत्साहका साथ एक जना सिनियर दाइसँग हामीले गिटार बजाउन सिक्न थाल्यौं ।
त्यो श्यामश्वेत भन्दा अगाडिको जमाना थियो किन कि त्यस बखत टिभी नै थिएन, टि भी त के क्यासेट प्लेयर पनि थिएन ।
संगीत सुन्नलाई रेडियो वा भिनल रेकर्ड प्रयोग गरिन्थ्यो (हामी त्यसलाई चेन्जर प्लेयर भन्थ्यौं तर त्यसको वास्तविक नाम ग्रामोफोन थिएछ) ।
मेरो गरीब आपाको असिम प्यारको सौगात त्यो गिटार मेरो जीवनकै सुनौलो गिटार थियो ।
मेरो लागि आजका महँगा से महँगा गिटार पनि त्यो पुरानो गिटारको अगाडि तु्च्छ छ ।
वहाँको दूरदर्शीताले हामीलाई राम्रो शिक्षादीक्षाको वातावरण मिलाउनुभयो, त्यस कठिन परिस्थितिमा पनि सन्तानको इच्छालाई सम्मान गर्ने मेरो आपालाई मेरो सलाम छ ।
मेरो जीवनकै दुर्भाग्य त्यो गिटार नष्ट भयो ….गोर्खाल्यान्डको आन्दोलन चर्किरहेको कुनै गाउँमा…
आज मसँग सुन्दर र महँगा धेरै गिटारहरु छन् तर पनि मलाई तिनमा होइन लगन र समर्पणमा विश्वास छ ।
म मेरो आपा आमालाई संझिरहेको छु ।

फिरोजका गिटारहरु

MY FATHER AND MY OLD GUITAR
A BITTER TRUTH
——————-

My father had bought me a guitar long long time ago at the cost of 90 indian rupee which was also in two installment..(45+45) Of my village senior brother, when i was very very small and was very excited of having it for to learn. I hardly remember those days of black and white where there was no TV, not even a cassette player, the main sources of music was radio and vinyl records (we used to call it changer player but its a gramophone) Anyways, the guitar i got from my poor father was a golden guitar for me and for my entire life. I can’t compare the costliest guitars of these days with it…i salute him, he was a very farsighted man gave us good educational facilities But unfortunately the guitar i had that time got destroyed.. Somewhere in the village where there was high time of Gorkhaland movement going on….. To day i have such a wonderful and costliest guitars with me but still I don’t believe in those stuffs, I believe in practice and devotion..I Love my ama and apa..
