यह मुम्बई की करोड़पति स्त्री का शव है। एक करोड़पति NRI पुत्र की माँ की लाश है। लगभग 10 माह से 7 करोड़ के फ़्लैट में मरी पड़ी थी। अमेरिका में रहने वाले इंजीनियर ऋतुराज साहनी लंबे अरसे बाद अपने घर मुंबई लौटे, तो घर पर उनका सामना किसी जीवित परिजन की जगह अपनी मां के कंकाल से हुआ। बेटे को नहीं मालूम कि उसकी मां आशा साहनी की मौत कब और किन परिस्थितियों में हुई। आशा साहनी के बुढ़ापे की एकमात्र आशा 'उनके इकलौते बेटे' ने खुद स्वीकार किया कि उसकी मां से आखिरी बातचीत कोई सवा साल पहले बीते साल अप्रैल में हुई थी।
23 अप्रैल 2016 को मां ने ऋुतुराज से कहा था कि बेटा! अब अकेले नहीं रह पाती हूँ। या तो अपने पास अमेरिका बुला लो या फिर मुझे किसी ओल्डएज होम में भेज दो। बेटे ऋतुराज ने आशा साहनी को ढाढस दिया कि मां फिक्र न करे, वह जल्द ही इंडिया आएगा। डोनाल्ड ट्रंप के अमेरिका में किसी भारतीय का नौकरी करना और डालर कमाना आसान नहीं रहा। लिहाजा बेटे ने अपने हिसाब से तो जल्दी ही की होगी, वह सवा साल बाद मॉं से किया वायदा पूरा करने इंडिया आया, पर माँ के हिसाब से देर हो गई और इसी बीच न जाने कब आशा साहनी की मौत हो गई।
रविवार सुबह एयरपोर्ट से घर पहुंचने के बाद ऋतुराज साहनी ने काफी देर तक दरवाजे पर दस्तक दी। जब कोई जवाब नहीं आया तो उन्होंने दरवाजा खुलवाने के लिए एक चाबी बनाने वाले की मदद ली। भीतर घुसे तो उन्हें अपनी 63 साल की मां आशा साहनी का कंकाल मिला।
आशा साहनी 10वें फ्लोर पर बड़े से फ़्लैट में अकेले रहती थीं। उनके पति की मौत 2013 में हो चुकी थी। पुलिस के मुताबिक 10वीं मंजिल पर स्थित दोनों फ्लैट साहनी परिवार के ही हैं, इसलिए शायद पड़ोसियों को कोई बदबू नहीं आई। हालांकि पुलिस के मुताबिक यह भी हैरानी की बात है कि किसी मेड या फिर पड़ोसी ने उनके दिखाई न देने पर गौर क्यों नहीं किया।
बेटे ने अंतिम बार अप्रैल 2016 में बात होने की जानकारी ऐसे दी, मानों वह अपनी मां से कितना रेगुलर टच में था। जैसा कि बेटे से बातचीत में आशा ने संकेत भी किया था कि वह इतनी अशक्त हो चुकी थीं कि उनका अकेले चल-फिर पाना और रहना मुश्किल हो गया था। करोड़ों डालर कमाने वाले बेटे की मां और 12 करोड़ के दो फ़्लैटों की मालकिन आशा साहनी को अंतिम यात्रा तो नसीब नहीं ही हुई, इससे भी बड़ी विडंबना यह हुई, जैसा कि प्रत्यक्षदर्शियों का अनुमान है कि संभवत: आशा की मौत भूख-प्यास के चलते हुई।
भारत के महाराष्ट्र प्रान्त की आर्थिक राजधानी मुंबई के अंधेरी इलाके लोखंडवाला की पाश लोकलिटी 'वेल्स कॉट सोसायटी' में इस अकेली बुजुर्ग महिला की मौत जिन हालात में हुई, उनसे यह साफ है कि कोलंबिया विश्वविद्यालय की रिपोर्ट में छुपी पश्चिमी सभ्यता की त्रासदी हम भारतीयों के दरवाजे पर दस्तक देती लग रही है। इस रिपोर्ट के मुताबिक मौत का इंतजार ही इस सदी की सबसे खौफनाक बीमारी और आधुनिक जीवन शैली की सबसे बड़ी त्रासदी है। अशक्त मां की करुण पुकार सुनकर भी अनसुना कर देने वाला जब अपना इकलौता बेटा ही हो, तब ऐसे समाज में रिश्ते-नातेदारों से क्या अपेक्षा की जाय?
आशा साहनी की मौत ने एक बार फिर चेताया है कि भारत के शहरों में भी सामाजिक ताना-बाना किस कदर बिखर गया है। अब समय नहीं बचा है, अब भारतवर्ष को चेत जाना चाहिए। भारत में भारतीय संस्कृति नहीं बची तो कुछ नहीं बचेगा।
Google Translate: This is the body of a millionaire woman in Mumbai. A millionaire is the corpse of an NRI son's mother. About 10 months to 7 million had died in the flat. Rituraj Sahni, an engineer living in America, returned to his home Mumbai after a long time, then at home he encountered his mother's skeleton instead of a living family. The son does not know when and under what circumstances his mother Asha Sahni died. Asha Sahni's only hope of old age, her only son, himself admitted that the last conversation with his mother was held a year and a half ago in April last year.
On 23 April 2016, mother told Rituraj that son! Now I am not able to live alone. Either call America with you or send me to an old age home. Son Rituraj encouraged Asha Sahni that mother should not worry, he will come to India soon. It was not easy for Donald Trump to do an Indian job in the US and earn dollars. So the son must have done it according to his own hurry, he came to India to fulfill the promise made by mother after a year and a half, but according to the mother it was late and in the meantime, when Asha Sawhney died.
After reaching home from the airport on Sunday morning, Rituraj Sahni knocked on the door for a long time. When no answer came, they enlisted the help of a key maker to open the door. When inside, he found the skeleton of his 63-year-old mother Asha Sahni.
Asha Sahni lived alone in the big flat on the 10th floor. Her husband died in 2013. According to the police, both the flats located on the 10th floor belong to the Sahni family, so the neighbors probably did not smell any. However, according to the police, it is also surprising why a med or neighbor did not notice his absence.
The son last spoke in April 2016, as if he was in regular touch with his mother. As Asha had also indicated in her conversation with the son that she had become so incapacitated that it was difficult for her to move and live alone. The last visit to Asha Sawhney, the mother of a son earning crores of dollars and the mistress of two flats of 12 crores, was not destined, even more ironically, as eyewitnesses speculate that possibly Asha's death is due to hunger and thirst Hui.
It is clear from the circumstances in which this lonely elderly woman died in the loop localities 'Wales Cott Society' in Lokhandwala, Andheri area of Mumbai, the economic capital of Maharashtra province of India, that the tragedy of western civilization in the report of Columbia University is clear to us Indians She starts knocking at the door. According to this report, waiting for death is the most dreadful disease of the century and the biggest tragedy of modern life style. What is to be expected from relatives and relatives in such a society, when the person who is unhappy even after hearing the unkind mother's compassion, is the only son?
Asha Sahni's death has once again warned how social fabric has been disintegrated even in the cities of India. Now there is no time left, now India should go to war. If there is no Indian culture left in India, nothing will be left.
