जुम्ली ठिटोको स्याउ सपना

जुम्लाबाट तीन दिन लगाएर काठमाडौं ल्याइएको अर्ग्यानिक स्याउ बेचिरहेको ठिटोलाई अरुसँग बोल्ने उतिसारो फुर्सद छैन। काठमाडौंको रामशाहपथस्थित नेशनल ट्रेडिङको बिक्री कक्षको गेटै अगाडि स्याउ बेचिरहेका भेटिन्छन् उनी।जुम्लाबाट राजधानी ल्याएको स्याउ कागजको बाकसमा राखेर किलोका किलो बेचिरहेका छन् यी ठिटा। साथमा सहयोग गर्न केही मानिस पनि छन्। जुम्लाबाट ल्याएको अर्ग्यानिक स्याउ लैजानुस्, विश्वास नलागे चाख्नुस्भन्दै ग्राहकलार्इ विश्वास दिलाउँछन्। शंका गर्नेलाई केही टुक्रा चखाउँछन् पनि।'पहिलो पटक आउने ग्राहकले नेपाली रहेछ किन्दिउँ न त भनेर किन्छन्,' स्याउ बेच्दै गरेका जुम्लाका दिनेश खड्का भन्छन्, 'एक पटक खाएपछि फेरि चाहियो भन्दै फर्कने ग्राहक धेरै छन्।'  

जुम्लाका २० वर्षे ठिटा दिनेश ललितपुरको नमुना मच्छिन्द्र कलेजमा कक्षा १२ मा पढ्दैछन्। व्यवस्थापन संकाय पढ्दै गरेका उनलाई जागिरको मोह कहिल्यै लागेन। उनका बाबु स्याउ तथा यार्सागुम्बाको व्यापार गर्दै आएका छन्। 'जुम्लाबाट स्याउ ल्याएको छु,' उनी भन्छन्, 'यहाँ चार जना स्टाफ पनि छन्। उनीहरु र म मिलेर काम गरिरहेका छौं।' व्यापारी बाबुका छोरा दिनेशलाई पनि बाबुकै बिँडो थाम्ने रहर छ।

उनी जुम्लाबाट ल्याएको स्याउ एक सय २० रुपैयाँ प्रतिकिलोमा बेच्छन्। असोज ८ गतेबाट काठमाडौंमा स्याउ बेच्न थालेका दिनेशले अहिलेसम्म झण्डै तीनहजार किलोभन्दा बढी जुम्लाको अर्ग्यानिक स्याउ बेचिसकेका छन्। उनी भन्छन्, 'सात हजार केजी ल्याको थें, एक हजार केजी त बिग्रिएरै सकियो, बाँकी ६ हजार केजी स्याउ बेचिरहेका छौं।'

स्याउ सपना

तिहार अगाडि कात्तिकको ५ गतेसम्म स्याउ बेच्ने उनले बताए। उनी दैनिक तीन/चारसय किलो स्याउ बेच्छन्। अहिले स्याउ बेच्ने काम मात्र गरे पनि यसैमा उनले भविष्य देखेका छन्, स्याउसँग उनले सपना जोड्न थालेका छन्।

'मेरो बुबा पनि सानोतिनो बिजनेसम्यान नै हो,' दिनेश भन्छन्, 'मलाई पनि सानैदेखि एउटा बिजनेसम्यान बन्ने रहर थियो र अहिलेदेखि नै सुरु गर्दैछु।' आफूलाई जागिर खाने भन्दा व्यापार गर्ने चाहना धेरै भएकाले अहिलेदेखि नै सुरु गरेको बताउँछन् उनी। 'म अहिले २० वर्षको भएँ, यो उमेरमा बिजनेश गर्ने मान्छे धेरै कम हुन्छन् जस्तो मलाई लाग्छ,' उनी भन्छन्, 'म जुम्लाका उत्पादन त्यहाँबाट बाहिर ल्याएर जुम्लालाई चिनाउन चाहन्छु।'  
वाइन फ्याक्ट्रीदेखि विदेश सप्लाइसम्मको लक्ष्य
दिनेशका बाबु नेपालगञ्ज, सुर्खेतलगायतका स्थानमा स्याउको व्यापार गर्थे। उनले बाबुलाई सहयोग गर्ने सिलसिलामा व्यापार बढाउँदै राजधानीसम्म ल्याइपुर्‍याएका हुन्। तर उनको लक्ष्य यतिमै सीमित छैन।
उनको लक्ष्य जुम्लाको स्याउ काठमाडौं ल्याएर वाइन बनाउने सम्मको छ। 'हामीले वाइन फ्याक्ट्री चलाउन काम अघि बढाइसकेका छौं,' उनी भन्छन्, 'जुम्लाको अर्ग्यानिक स्याउको वाइन विदेशसम्म पुर्‍याउने लक्ष्य छ।'
अर्को वर्षबाट जुम्लाको स्याउ बंगलादेश पठाउने तयारी स्वरुप काम गरिरहेको उनले बताए। उनी काठमाडौंको वानेश्वरमा कम्पनी खोल्ने तयारीमा छन्। उनलाई अरु चार जनाले यसमा साथ दिएका छन्। 'मलाई अरु चार जनाले ५० लाख रुपैयाँका दरले लगानी गर्छौं भनेका छन्,' दिनेशले भने, 'सबै मिलेर करिब दुई करोड रुपैयाँ लगानीमा कम्पनी खोल्ने तयारी छ।'  
सजिलो छैन स्याउ यात्रा
जुम्लाबाट सुर्खेत, नेपालगञ्ज हुँदै तीन दिन लगाएर स्याउ काठमाडौं आइपुग्छ। तीन ठाउँमा बास बस्दै आउने एउटा स्याउले गाडी पनि तीनवटै चढ्छ। 'जुम्लाबाट एउटा गाडीमा सुर्खेतसम्म र सुर्खेतबाट अर्को गाडीमा नेपालगञ्जसम्म ल्याउँदा नै दुईवटा गाडी चेन्ज हुन्छ,' खड्का भन्छन्, 'नेपालगञ्जबाट काठमाडौं ल्याउन फेरि अर्को ट्रक चाहिन्छ।'

जुम्लाबाट नेपालगञ्जसम्म साना गाडीमा र त्यसपछि ठुलो गाडीमा स्याउ काठमाडौं ल्याउने गरेको उनले बताए। जुम्लाबाट सिधै एउटै गाडीमा काठमाडौं ल्याउन नसक्ने भएकाले 'गाडीमा लोड अनलोड' गर्दा स्याउ ठोक्किएर दाग लाग्ने गरेको उनले गुनासो गरे। दाग लागेको स्याउ बिक्री हुँदैन। 'गाडीमा राख्दा र झार्दा स्याउमा दाग लाग्छ,' उनी भन्छन्, 'मान्छेहरु त्यसलाई कुहिएको ठान्छन्, हाम्रो अर्ग्यानिक स्याउमा दाग लागेको देखिए पनि भित्र केही भएको हुँदैन।'  
आकर्षक नदेखिँदा बेच्न गाह्रो
जुम्लाबाट काठमाडौं ल्याइएको अर्ग्यानिक स्याउको रंग काठमाडौंको बजारमा पाइने अरु स्याउ जस्तो रातो हुँदैन। थोरै रातो र केही फिक्का जस्तो देखिने यो स्याउ हेर्दा आकर्षक नहुने भएकाले मानिसहरुले झट्ट हेर्ने बित्तिकै किन्न हच्किने गरेको अनुभव छ उनको। उनले भने, ‘काठडौंमा मान्छे हेर्दा आकर्षक जस्तो देखिने रातो स्याउ खाइरहेका छन्। हाम्रो स्याउ त्यति आकर्षक त देखिँदैन तर खाँदा मात्रै मिठो हुने भएकाले मान्छेहरु खाएपछि मात्रै स्याउ लिन आउँछन्।'

एकपटक जुम्ली स्याउ खाएपछि मान्छे नियमित उनकोमा स्याउ किन्न आउँछन् भन्छन् उनी। उनको अनुभवमा हेर्दा फिक्का भएपनि रसिलो भएकाले जुम्ली स्याउ अरुको तुलनामा गुणस्तरीय हुन्छ। काठमाडौंमा रातो चिनियाँ स्याउ खाने बानी परेकाले हेर्ने बित्तिकै जुम्ली स्याउ मन नपराउने र खाएपछि मात्रै मनपराउने गरेको उनले बताए। 

व्यापार गर्न गाह्रो
काठमाडौंसम्म जुम्ली स्याउ दिनेश र उनका बाबुलगायतले किसानको बारीबाटै टिपेर ल्याउँछन्। किसानको बारीदेखि काठमाडौंसम्म स्याउ ल्याउँदा धेरै फाइदा नहुने उनको अनुभव छ। 'हामीले किसानलाई नै ३० देखि ४० रुपैयाँसम्म दिन्छौं,' उनले भने, 'तीनवटा गाडी भाडा नै एक केजीको भण्डै ४० रुपैयाँ जान्छ, त्यसमाथि पनि कोल्डस्टोरको भाडा पनि तिर्नु परिहाल्यो।'
काठमाडौंसम्म स्याउ ल्याउँदा धेरै दु:ख गर्नुपरेको उनको अनुभव छ। 'ट्राफिकसँग समेत धेरै कुरा मिलाउनु पर्ने, व्यवसाय गर्न गाह्रो हुने रहेछ,' उनले भने, 'ग्राहकको विश्वास जितेर बेच्नु पर्छ।' सुरुमा त कालीमाटीमा लगियो, मान्छेले किनेनन्, ६०/६५ मा दिँदा पनि नबिकेपछि यहाँ आएर व्यापार गरिरहेको छु' उनले अनुभव सुनाए।
उनले आफ्ना समस्या नेशनल ट्रेडिङ र कृषि मन्त्रालयमा राखेपछि मात्र सुपथ मूल्य पसल भएका स्थानमा कारोबार गर्न दिइएको थियो। दिनेशले भाडाबापत साल्ट ट्रेडिङलाई प्रतिकिलो दुई रुपैयाँ तिर्ने गरेका छन्।  
काठमाडौंकालाई रातो चाहिने सुर्खेतकालाई सस्तो
अहिले उपभोक्ताको छनौट र चाहनालाई पनि उनले बुझ्न थालेका छन् उनी। 'काठमाडौं र सुर्खेत नेपालगञ्जको माग नै फरक खालको छ,' उनी भन्छन्, 'काठमाडौंका मान्छेलाई रातो स्याउ चाहिने रहेछ उता सस्तो खोज्थे।' सुर्खेतमा मान्छेहरुले एकमुष्ट रुपमा स्याउ किने पनि काठमाडौंमा भने त्यस्तो नभएको उनको अनुभव छ। 'जुम्लामा ३५ रुपैयाँ परेको स्याउ मैले कालीमाटीमा ६० रुपैयाँमा बेच्न खोज्दा पनि बिकेन,' उनले सुनाए, 'अर्ग्यानिक स्याउमा रंग हुँदैन भन्ने कुरा यहाँका मान्छेले थाहा पाएनन्।'


उनले अहिले जुम्लाबाटै ल्याइएको आलु, सिमी र दालको पनि व्यापार गरिरहेका छन्।

Vijaya Dashami

The greatest significant of this festival is to receive Tika from their parent's hand. Scriptures say "If we take Tika from our parents' hand on Dashain or Bijaya dashami, our wishes will be fulfilled by the God soon because it describes that there's no God above our parents for us". That's why the dispersed families try to unite together at their home in this festival. Not only from their parents; also have they received Tika as a blessing from the elders' hand as well. Before some people crowd to Narayanhiti Royal palace to receive the Tika from the King's hand on Dashain.

People renovate their houses and its compounds nicely and make it more shinning at this time; and everywhere the streets also looks very neat and clean than the usual time. In the village, the houses are besmeared by red mud and white chalk, which looks quite brightened and beautiful. People rush to buy new clothes and festival requirements in the market and the whole market looks very busy and crowed at this time. The main motto of this festival is to enjoy with their family eating delicious foods and wearing new brand clothes. The Tika is prepared by mixing the rice with yogurt and colors.

Ghatasthapana

This is the beginning day of the festival. On this first day the people keep Jamara in their houses. Jamara is the grown collection seedlings of barley and corn. The barley and corn is soaked in water a day before and it's sown on a leaf plate filled with black mud. Everyday a little water should be sprinkled on it; and on the tenth day of the festival, which is called the Badashain day (the biggest day of the festival); this seedling is given to the Tika receiver.

Navaratri

Navaratri begins since the Ghatasthapana day and ends after nine bay before the Tika receiving day. During these nine days different features of Kumari Goddesses are worshipped. They are, Kumari; Trimurti; Kalyani; Rohini; Kali; Chandi; Shovaki; Durga; and Bhadra. People worship nine different virgin girls separately on these different days to them considering as the features of Goddess Bhawani; and contribute them foods, clothes and money as per their capacity.

Fulpati
The seventh day of the festival is called the Fulpati and it's celebrated grandly all over the country by playing traditional musical band Panchai Baja and sacrificing small he-goat and he-buffalo. The Fulpati is the combination of a few verities of plants viz. sugarcane marigold and etc flowers'. Lot of spectators assembles to look this fete in their respective places.

A very superb Fulpati feu de joie takes place at Nepal Army Pavilion at Tundikhel in Kathmandu on this day. The Fulpati coterie comes from Gorkha palace where the Shah dynasty King's used to sojourn a long time back there. Thousands of people flock to see this fete in Tundikhel on this day; where before His Majesties the King, Queen and the Royal families also used to attend to grace this fair. Also HMG high ranking officials and high level diplomats are also invited to look the occasion. Thirty one cannon's fire salutations are offered to their Majesties as a Royal Honor. His Majesty the King confers the Royal decorations and orders on this day to the persons who have done the commendable contribution for the improvement of the nation. The names of the recipients' are already have been broadcast on media previously on His Majesty the King's birthday; and they come to receive these orders on this day there. After giving the audience there Their Majesties go to Hanumandhoka palace to observe the Fulpati worship. But the autocratic King's all the powers have been seized by the people in the grand peoples' move held since Chaitra 14 to 2068 and where many people had received their martyrdom in this public move for the nation and have brought the sovereignty of the country on the peoples' hand from a single man's autocratic regime.

Mahanawami

Dashain Festival ToursThis is the ninth day of the festival; and all the arms and weapons are worshipped on this day collecting at the altar of the goddess. Many he-goats and hebuffalos are sacrificed and the blood is offered on the idol of the Goddess Durga to appease her. People go with roosters, goats, pigeons and buffalos to sacrifice in the name of Goddess and consume it as a prasad. Many people herd to worshipping at the strengthening point of the goddess mother and the traditional Panchai Baja is played there; because of this the place turns in to a spectacular fair. On this day's night people make selroti; the rice's round Nepali bread cooked in the boiled oil; then this selroti is served to the Tika receivers on the next day.

Vijaya Dashami or Badadashain

This is the tenth day and the greatest day of the festival. The Tika receiving exact auspicious time has been broadcast on the radio, which is calculated by the knowledgeable priest. The facing movement also to receive the Tika is calculated by the purohits; and the receivers turn towards the same direction in the Tika receiving time. People go to their respected elders house to house to receive the blessing. After the Tika they enjoy the day long eating the sumptuous foods. People exchange among each other the Vijaya greetings during the whole 15 days' festival period. The Tika receiving procedure lasts for another four days till the shortly coming full moon and ends on this day. The Jamara and the left Tikas are all thrown in the river or at some pious place at the end. This festival is believed to be in practice since the silver age itself; on the happy occasion of slaughtering the cruel Demon by Lord Ram; by the grace of Goddess Bhagawati to relieve all the virtuous persons of this earth.
