Cheetah’s Tears Summary in Gujarati

કેટલાય સમય પહેલાં એક ઝલ શિકારી એક ઝાડ નીચે બેઠો હતો. તેનું નામ ઇદી હતું. તેણે હરણના એક મોટા ટોળાને લીલાછમ બીડમાં ચરતું જોયું. તેણે મનમાં વિચાર્યું, “આ હરણ ખરેખર અદ્ભુત હોય છે, પણ તેમાંના એકને પકડવા માટે મારે ખૂબ દોડવું પડે. તેને પકડવા માટે કોઈ સહેલો રસ્તો ન હોઈ શકે?” એકાએક તેણે એક માદા ચિત્તાને ચરતાં પ્રાણીઓ તરફ ચૂપચાપ સરકતી જોઈ.

પછી તે કૂદી અને હરણને પકડી પાડ્યું. થોડી વાર પછી તેનાં બે બચ્ચાં ઝાડીમાંથી બહાર આવ્યાં. તેઓ સૌએ તેમનું ભોજન માણ્યું. ઇદીની આંખમાં ચમક આવી. એમાં એક યુક્તિ ઝબૂકી. તેને બચ્ચાંની અદેખાઈ આવી, “આ રૂપાળાં બચ્ચાં માફક હું નસીબદાર થઈ શકે ખરો? તેમને તો કોઈ શ્રમ વિના તેમનો ખોરાક મળી ગયો. મારે તેમની મા જેવો શિકારી હોય, તો?” તેને વિચાર આવ્યો.

GSEB Solutions Class 9 English Chapter 1 Cheetah's Tears

તેણે એક નાના બચ્ચાને પકડી તેને પોતાના માટે શિકાર કરવાની તાલીમ આપવાનું નક્કી કર્યું. પછી માત્ર આટલું જ કહીશ, “ચાલ વહાલા, જા અને મારે માટે એક હરણ મારી લાવ. આહ! પછીથી મારું જીવન ખૂબ આરામદાયક બની જશે.” પોતાના આ વિચારથી એ ખૂબ ખુશ થઈ ગયો. બચ્ચાંનો પીછો કરી તેણે એકને ચોરી લાવવાનું નક્કી કર્યું. – ચિત્તો કદી માણસ પર હુમલો નથી કરતો એમ એ અનુભવથી જાણતો હતો. તેથી બચ્ચે ચોરી લાવવાનું સલામત હતું. સાંઝ

સુધી ચિત્તાના કુટુંબનો પીછો કરતો રહ્યો. સૂર્યાસ્ત થયા પછી માએ પોતાનાં બચ્ચાંને ગાઢ ઝાડીમાં છુપાવ્યાં અને ઝરણા તરફ ઉપડી, શિકારીએ પોતાની જાળ અને ભાલો ઉઠાવ્યાં અને ઝડપથી ઝાડીમાં દોડી ગયો. તેણે નાનકડાં બે બચ્ચાં જોયાં. તેઓ તેની (શિકારી) સામે ચમકતી આંખે જોઈ રહ્યાં. તેઓ એટલાં નાનાં હતાં કે દોડી જઈ શકે નહિ. ઇદીએ તેમના પર જાળ પાથરી અને બચ્ચાં પકડાઈ ગયાં. તેને તો એક જ બચ્ચાની જરૂર હતી પણ તેણે વિચાર્યું, “આહ! એકને બદલે બે ગુલામો હોય તે સારું.” તેણે તે બંનેને પોતાની સાથે ઘસડ્યાં અને એક મોટા ટોપલા નીચે છુપાવ્યાં.

થોડી વાર પછી મા પાછી આવી. તેણે બચ્ચાં જોયાં નહિ. તેણે બધી બાજુ જોયું. પહેલાં તો તે ખૂબ ધૂંઆપૂંઆ થઈ ગઈ અને પછી જોરથી કૂદી. તે બધે જ સુંધી વળી. પણ અરેરે! તેને પોતાનાં પ્રાણપ્રિય બચ્ચાંનો પત્તો લાગ્યો નહિ. છેવટે તે ઉદાસ થઈ ગઈ અને રડવા લાગી. તે આખીયે રાત રડતી રહી, રડતી રહી, તે એક બીજા દિવસની સાંઝ સુધી રડી. તેના ગાલ પર આંસુના કાળા ડાઘ પડી ગયા ત્યાં સુધી તેણે રડ્યા જ કર્યું. તે હજી (પણ) રડતી હતી. રાત્રે ચિત્તામાં એટલું મોટેથી રડી કે ગામમાં રહેતા એક ડાહ્યા માણસે તે (રડવાનો અવાજ) સાંભળ્યો. જે બન્યું હતું તે આ વૃદ્ધને સમજાઈ ગયું. તેણે તરત જ હાથમાં પોતાની ડાંગ લીધી અને તેની ઝૂંપડીમાંથી બહાર આવ્યો. આ વૃદ્ધ શત્નો

ખૂબ સમજદાર હતો. તેને પ્રાણીઓ પ્રત્યે અપાર પ્રેમ હતો અને પ્રાણીઓ વિશે બધું જાણતો હતો. શત્નોએ જ્યારે છુપાવેલાં બચ્ચાં શોધી કાઢ્યાં ત્યારે એ સમજી ગયો કે આ દુષ્ટ (નિર્દય) કામ ઇદીનું જ હતું. તે ઇદી પર ખૂબ ચિડાયો. તે તેની ઝૂંપડી પર દોડી ગયો અને ત્રાડ નાખી, “ઇદી હું તને ધિક્કારું છું! આપણી જમાતનો દરેક જણ તને ધિક્કારશે કારણ કે તું એદી તો છે જ પણ દુષ્ટ પણ છે. આપણે જાણીએ છીએ કે શિકારીએ પોતાની તાકાત અને આવડતનો ઉપયોગ કરીને જ શિકાર કરવો જોઈએ. પણ તું આળસુ શિકારી છે. તું ચોર છે. તેં આપણી જમાતના નિયમોનો ભંગ કર્યો છે. તેં આખી જમાતને બદનામ કરી છે.”

શિકારી જમાતના બધા લોકો એકઠા થયા. તેમણે ઇદીને કાયમને માટે ગામમાંથી હાંકી કાઢવાનો નિર્ણય કર્યો. શત્નોએ બચ્ચાંને પોતાને ખભે ઊંચક્યાં અને તેમને તેમની મા પાસે પહોંચતાં કર્યા. તેણે જોયું કે ખૂબ લાંબા સમય સુધી રડવાથી માના ચહેરા પર કાયમને માટે કાળા ડાઘ થઈ ગયા હતા.
