Ramchandra Karkare Incident

– Neelesh Karkare, Gwalior, INDIA.

This is the story of a nobel person ,rather I think two nobel persons.

In the year 1922 feb., Smt. Gopika bai karkare told his brother in law’s elder son…..
“sonu bhaiya , aaj bade mahatva ki baat batati hoon tumhe,
hamare kaka saheb hai na , who bade pahunche huye sanyasi hai.”

Sonu bhaiya replied –”achchha , to kaku yah batao ki be rahte kahan hai?”
“sonu bhaiya ve to sanyasi hai, sadaiv ghoomte hi rahte hai,unka koi ek thikana thode hi hota hai.”-said

the Gopika bai “ek baar tumhare parshuram ji kaka ki tabiyat achanak bigad gai thi , tab hamare kaka saheb ne hi unko himalay se lai hui ek jadi –booti di thi”

“fir kya hua ” -asked Sonu bhaiyya.

“fir kya aanan fannan main unki tabiyat ekdam thik ho gai”

“kaku ye batao ki unko aur jya kya ata hai”

“sonubhaiya ek baar to hamare ghar ke sabhi darwaje apne aap band ho gaye the, hum bahut chhote the, garmike din the ”

“fir kya hua”?”

“Hamare kaka sahab us waqt khana kha ke so rahe the hum ne unko uthaya aur sari bat batai”

“kya aap us waqt ghar me akeli thi kya ?”

“nahi,meri aai, tatya aur dada saheb bhi the”

“fir kya hua?”

“thodi hi der main kakasahab pura majra samajh gaye turant unhone jor se kaha –are yahan tera bas nahi chalega abhi bhagata hoon tujhe” -said Gopika bai.
Gopikabai added – “aisa kah kar unhone namak ki ek pudiya banai aur us par kumkum chhidak diya aur mujhse bola ise turant sabhi khidki aur darwajon par rakh do, aur khud bhagwan ke samne dhoop, deep laga kar baidh gaye”

“aisa unhone kyon kiya ?” – asked Sonu bhaiyya.

“kya pata ,hoga kuchh bhi, lekin kuch hi kshanon ke baad ghar ke darwaje aur khidki khul gaye lekin gazab ki baat dekho, ki namak ki pudiya apne aap khul gai”

“kya aisa kabhi ho sakta hai? –asked Sonu bhaiyya.

“khair jo bhi ho main unse milna chahunga” – Sonu added.

Later on in April 1922 kaka saheb visited where Gopika bai was living. Gopika bai asked Sonu bhaiya “kya tum hamare kaka e milna chahoge ve yaha jyada der nahi rukenge ?”.

Sonu and Gopikabai walked a half mile and reached to the place where kakasaheb was sitting and at the first moment kakasaheb turned his eyes on Sonu bhaiyya he said – “are tu tar khup mottha waqil ban nar aahe, tujha naav purna aayushya bhar chamkat rahil, nantar pan tujhi kirti rahil.”.

And after some time kakasaheb departed from that place.

Later on after eight years , the Sonu bhaiya was the popular waqil of Gwalior riyasat.
Known as Ramchandra Karkare.
