Shrawan Kumar: Anupam Pitribhakt
Shrawan Kumar ke saman na to aaj tak koi pitribhakt hua hai aur sambhavtya bhavishya mein hoga. Vishva ke itihas aur sahitya mein agyakaari putra to bahut mil jayenge lekin shrawan ke samkaksh esa navyuvak nahin milega jisne apna saaraa jeevan, apne saare armaan aur aakankshayen apne andhe matapita ki sewa-shurusha ke liye swat: tyag dee hon.
Sharwan Kumar ‘apne mabaap ko bhavan se bhi adhika manon’ ki pratimurti hain.Uska sapna uske maabaap ki khushi, uska bhavishya uske maabaap ki suraksha, uska aadarsh uske maabaap ki niswarth sewa tha. Usne hanste huye pitriyagya mein apne aapnon ki saharsh aahuti de dee. Uske maabaap ki khushi mein uski sachchi khushi thee. Behangi mein unhe teerthon ki yatra karvata raha. Jab dashrath ke shabd bhedi baan sey uski mritu nishchay thee to usne raja se apne maabaap ko bulane ki prarthana ki. Usey is baat ka gam tha ki uskne mata pita bin maut anath hokar mar jayenge. Esay spooton per bharat ko hi nahin sarapporn sansar ko garva hai.
Esay navyuvak itihas mekn sadaiv amar rahte hain. Hamara Shrawn ko koti koti naman.
Shrawan Kumar is perhaps the unique youth in the history and literature of the world who gave up his youth, renounced his dreams to be eternally with his blind and aged parents as inseparable as their shadow to ensure their safety and security, to supply them all their demands to discharge his filial duties and moral obligations. All his life he carried them in a behangi most comfortably to all pilgrim places. Shrawan stands unequalled in his selfless, truthful devotion to his parents who for him were his first gods. Their bonding was so deep that they forgot their natural handicaps and debilities. The sound-piercing arrow of Dashrath mortally wounded him near the Sarayu where he had gone to bring water for them in a pitcher. He was least bothered about his death, he was stilled and stunned to think of his parents destitute position after his death. He requests Dashrath to immediately call his bereaved parents so that he could solace them. Youth like Shrawan Kumar are very rare in the entire firmament of human civilization. He made his parents, his country and the world proud by his great action.
