The Beggar Summary

Sergei was an advocate. One day he came across a beggar. The beggar had dull, drunken eyes and a red spot on either cheek. He said that he had eaten nothing for three days. He had no money for a lodging either. He said that he had been a village school teacher for eight years. He had lost his place due to an intrigue. He had nothing to do for about a year. The advocate felt that he had seen the beggar somewhere before. His eyes fell on the beggar's pair of shoes. One shoe differed from the other. He suddenly remembered where he had seen him. He told the beggar that he had seen him in Sadovya Street. On that day, the beggar had said that he was a student who had been expelled. The beggar was taken aback. Faltering in his speech, he denied having met the advocate earlier. Sergei was angry and threatened to call the police. The beggar then admitted that he had lied to him on both occasions.

Formerly, he used to sing in a Russian choir and was sent away for drunkenness. He asked Sergei what else he could do. Sergei replied that he must work. The beggar asked where he could find work. Sergei offered him the work of chopping wood for him. The beggar couldn't refuse. Sergei took him to his house. He called his cook, Olga, and asked her to take the man into the wood-shed to chop wood. Olga did as she was told. Sergei could see the wood- shed and the yard from the window of his dining room. He saw Olga scolding the beggar for not working properly. He began to feel sorry for the beggar. When all the wood had been chopped, Sergei asked Olga to give the beggar half a rouble. He said that the beggar could come on the first day of each month and he would get work to do. The beggar did come on the first day of the next month and again earned half a rouble. From that day, he often appeared in the yard and got some work or the other.

When Sergei moved into another house, he hired him to help in the packing and hauling of furniture. The beggar's name was Lushkoff. Sergei gave a letter to Lushkoff recommending him to his friend for the job of making copies. Lushkoff took the letter and went away. Two years passed. One evening, Sergei was paying for his seat at the ticket-window of a theatre. He noticed a little man beside him wearing a coat and a cap. That man also asked the ticket-seller for a seat in the gallery and paid copper coins for it. Sergei recognised him. He was Lushkoff. Lushkoff said that he had become a notary and was paid thirty-five roubles a month. Sergei was delighted and thanked Lushkoff for listening to his advice and taking the right path. Lushkoff was grateful to him but he said that his cook, Olga, had really saved him. He explained that Olga used to scold and curse him a lot when he went to his house to chop wood. She wept for him and also chopped the wood for him. It was really her words and noble deeds that changed him. He had also given up drinking. The bell of the theatre rang just then. Lushkoff bowed and left for the gallery.


The Beggar Hindi Summary

सर्गी एक वकील था। एक दिन उसकी मुलाकात एक भिखारी से हुई । भिखारी की आँखें उदास और नशीली थीं और उसके प्रत्येक गाल पर एक लाल धब्बा था । उसने कहा कि उसने तीन दिनों से कुछ नहीं खाया था। उसके पास किसी होटल में ठहरने के लिए भी पैसे नहीं थे। उसने कहा कि आठ वर्षों तक वह एक स्कूल अध्यापक रह चुका था । उसने अपने विरुद्ध एक षड्यन्त्र रचे जाने के कारण अपनी नौकरी खो दी थी। लगभग एक वर्ष से उसके पास करने को कुछ भी नहीं था। वकील को महसूस हुआ कि उसने भिखारी को पहले कहीं देखा हुआ था। उसकी नज़रें भिखारी के जूतों की जोड़ी पर पड़ीं। एक जूता दूसरे जूते से भिन्न था। उसे अचानक याद आ गया कि उसने उसे कहाँ देखा था। उसने भिखारी को बताया कि उसने उसे सैडोव्या स्ट्रीट में देखा था । उस दिन भिखारी ने कहा था कि वह एक छात्र था जिसे निकाल दिया गया था। भिखारी भौंचक्का रह गया। उसने हकलाते हुए इस बात से इन्कार कर दिया कि वह उस वकील से पहले मिल चुका था। सर्गी क्रोधित हो गया और उसने पुलिस को बुलाने की धमकी दी । भिखारी ने तब स्वीकार कर लिया कि दोनों बार उसने उससे झूठ कहा था।

पहले वह एक रूसी गाने वालों की मंडली में गाया करता था और अपनी शराब पीने की आदत के कारण निकाल दिया गया था । उसने सर्गी से पूछा कि वह और क्या कर सकता था। सर्गी ने उत्तर दिया कि उसे काम करना चाहिए। भिखारी ने पूछा कि उसे काम कहाँ मिलेगा सर्गी ने उसे उसके लिए लकड़ियाँ काटने का काम देने की पेशकश की। भिखारी इन्कार नहीं कर सका । सर्गी उसे अपने घर ले गया। उसने अपनी बावर्चिन ओल्गा को बुलाया और उसे कहा कि वह उस व्यक्ति को लकड़ी काटने के लिए लकड़ियों वाले छप्पर में ले जाए । ओल्गा ने वैसा ही किया जैसा उसे कहा गया । सर्गी अपने खाने के कमरे की खिड़की से लकडियों वाले छप्पर और अहाते को देख सकता था। उसने ठीक तरह से काम नहीं करने के लिए ओल्गा को भिखारी को डाँटते देखा वह भिखारी के लिए खेद महसूस करने लगा। जब सारी लकड़ियाँ कट चुकीं तो सर्गी ने ओल्गा को कहा कि वह भिखारी को आधा रूबल दे दे। उसने कहा कि भिखारी हर महीने के पहले दिन वहाँ आ सकता था और उसे काम मिल जाना था। भिखारी अगले महीने के पहले दिन सचमुच आया और उसने फिर आधा रूबल कमा लिया। उस दिन से वह अकसर अहाते में आने लगा और उसे कोई न कोई काम मिल जाता।

जब सर्गी ने अपना घर बदला तो लकड़ी के साज-सामान बाँधने और उठा कर ले जाने के लिए उसने उसे भाड़े पर रखा । भिखारी का नाम लशकॉफ था । सर्गी ने उसे एक पत्र दिया जिसमें उसने अपने मित्र से उसे प्रतिलिपियाँ लिखने का काम देने की सिफारिश की थी। लशकॉफ ने पत्र लिया और वहाँ से चला गया। दो वर्ष बीत गए। एक दिन शाम के समय सर्गी एक नाट्यशाला की टिकट खिड़की पर अपनी सीट के पैसे चुका रहा था । उसने एक कोट और एक टोपी पहने हुए एक छोटे से व्यक्ति को अपनी बगल में देखा। उस व्यक्ति ने भी टिकट बेचने वाले से गैलरी का एक टिकट मांगा और उसके लिए ताँबे के सिक्के दिए । सर्गी उसे पहचान गया। वह लशकॉफ था। लशकॉफ ने कहा कि वह एक वैध अधिकारी बन गया था और इस काम के लिए उसे प्रति महीने पैंतीस रूबल मिलते थे । सर्गी खुश हो गया और उसकी सलाह मानने के लिए और सही रास्ते पर चलने के लिए उसने लशकॉफ का धन्यवाद किया। लशकॉफ उसका आभारी था किन्तु उसने कहा कि वास्तव में उसकी बावर्चिन ओल्गा ने उसे बचाया था । उसने बताया कि जब वह उसके घर लकड़ियाँ काटने जाता था तो ओल्गा उसे बहुत डाँटा और कोसा करती थी। वह उसके लिए रोती थी और उसके लिए लकड़ियाँ भी काट दिया करती थी । वास्तव में उसी के शब्दों और नेक कार्यों ने उसे बदल दिया था। उसने पीना भी छोड़ दिया था। उसी समय नाट्यशाला की घंटी बज उठी। लशकॉफ ने झुककर अभिवादन किया और गैलरी की ओर चल दिया।
