में सबसे उचित विकल्प चुनिए। कैसे मंगलमय प्रभात की कल्पना थी और कैसी अँधेरी कालरात्रि आ गई है? एक-दूसरे को देखने से डर लगता है। घर मसान हो गया है, अपने ही लोग भूत-प्रेत बन गए हैं, पेड़ सूख गए हैं, लताएँ कुम्हला गई हैं। नदियों और सरोवरों को देखना भी दुस्सह हो गया है। केवल इसलिए कि जिसका ऐश्वर्य से अभिषेक हो रहा था, वह निर्वासित हो गया। उत्कर्ष की ओर उन्मुख समष्टि का चैतन्य अपने ही घर से बाहर कर दिया गया, उत्कर्ष की, मनुष्य की ऊर्ध्वोन्मुख चेतना की यही कीमत सनातन काल से अदा की जाती रही है। इसीलिए जब कीमत अदा कर ही दी गई, तो उत्कर्ष कम-से-कम सुरक्षित रहे, यह चिंता स्वाभाविक हो जाती है। राम भीगें तो भीगें, राम के उत्कर्ष की कल्पना न भीगे, वह हर बारिश में हर दुर्दिन में सुरक्षित रहे। नर के रूप में लीला करने वाले नारायण निर्वासन की व्यवस्था झेलें, पर नर रूप में उनकी ईश्वरता का बोध दमकता रहे, पानी की बूँदों की झालर में उसकी दीप्ति छिपने न पाए। उस नारायण की सुख-सेज बने अनंत के अवतार लक्ष्मण भले ही भीगते रहें, उनका दुपट्टा, उनका अहर्निशि जागर न भीजे, शेषी नारायण के ऐश्वर्य का गौरव अनंत शेष के जागर-संकल्प से ही सुरक्षित हो सकेगा और इन दोनों का गौरव जगज्जननी आद्याशक्ति के अखंड सौभाग्य, सीमंत, सिंदूर से रक्षित हो सकेगा, उस शक्ति का एकनिष्ठ प्रेमपाकर राम का मुकुट है, क्योंकि राम का निर्वासन वस्तुत: सीता का दुहरा निर्वासन है। राम तो लौटकर राजा होते हैं, पर रानी होते ही सीता राजा राम द्वारा वन में निर्वासित कर दी जाती हैं। राम के साथ लक्ष्मण है, सीता है, सीता वन्य पशुओं से घिरी हुई विजन में सोचती है – प्रसव की पीड़ा हो रही है, कौन इस वेला में सहारा देगा, कौन प्रसव के समय प्रकाश दिखलाएगा, कौन मुझे सँभालेगा, कौन जन्म के गीत गाएगा?

में सबसे उचित विकल्प चुनिए। रहीम ने जीवन के इसी इंद्रधनुष को पानी के कतरे-कतरे में उगते देख था। वही मोती में आब बनकर उसकी श्री, शोभा और मूल्यवता बढ़ाता है। आदमी में यही तेजस्वी स्वाभिमान, उर्वर पौरुष और करुणा की आर्द्रता बनकर उद्दीप्त होता है। आटे में यही रस बनता है, स्वाद बनता है, रोटी बनकर भूख की आग को बुझाता है। मंगल ग्रह पर वैज्ञानिकों ने वाष्प की एक बूँदनुमा आकृति देखी और उनके चेहरे चमक उठे। पानी जीवन की निशानी है। पानी जीवन का पर्याय है। पानी से ही जीवन जागृत होता है। उपनिषद् का ऋषि कहता है- ‘इस संसार में पहले कुछ नहीं था। कुछ भी नहीं था। पानी-ही-पानी था। पानी का पारावार। उससे ही हिरण्यगर्भ ने जन्म लिया; सृष्टि का विकास हुआ और प्राणियों की श्रृंखला चल पड़ी।’ कबीर का दार्शनिक भी यही कहता है- ‘जल में कुंभ कुंभ में जल है, ऊपर नीचे पानी। फूटा कुंभ जल जलहिं समाना, यह तथ कथौ गियानी।’ जल में ही जीवन की ज्योति जागती है। अत: किसी ग्रह पर एक बूँदनुमा वाष्प का आभास हो जाना ही वहाँ जीवन की आर्द्रता की आश्वस्ति है। वहाँ कोई न कोई है।
