शाहबलूत का पत्ता!!! – भाग – १

प्रेम, युद्ध से पलायित देवताओं का स्वांग भर है! चौमासों की रात, रात की उमस और आकाश में बादल| आकाश का हर हिस्सा आज बादलों से पटा पड़ा था | बूँदें लबालब भरी हुई थीं, इतनी कि कोई एक बूँद भी हिले तो बीच का तारतम्य ही टूट जाये | “आज पानी न पड़े” उसने सोचा | उधर छत पर कोई किसी को कहानी सुना रहा था जिसके टूटे-टूटे शब्द उसके कानों में पड़ रहे
