सप्तपदीने साती सूर जुळले नाहीतर जीवनगाणे कसे बेसूर होते त्यांचा हा कथासंग्रह

वधूने शालू नेसलेला असतो. वराने उपरणं पांघरलेलं असतं. त्यामुळे ते उपरणं तो केव्हाही उतरवू शकतो. वधूला ते उपरणं गाठीसकट सांभाळावं लागतं. ते उपरण्याचं ओझं झटकून टाकायचं तिने ठरवलं तर अजूनही ह्या समाजात तिला जबर किंमत मोजावी लागते. ‘सखा सप्तपदी भव’- एका ओळीच्या ह्या अष्टाक्षरी कवितेतल्या ‘सखा’ ह्या शब्दाचा अर्थ ज्या ज्या पुरुषांना समजला, त्या त्या संसारांच्या बाबतीत सात पावलांनी स्वर्ग पृथ्वीवर अवतरतो. उरलेल्या संसारांची ती तप्तपदीच!. 

"Taptapadi`, is actually "Saptapadi` as the name suggests is walking those seven initial steps together; one of the rituals of an Indian marriage. These seven steps are indicative of the life that a husband and wife are going to lead together in each other`s company, holding hands on the way, completing the journey of life with a firm belief in each other, supporting each other, sometimes following, sometimes leading. In Sanskrit it is said that, "Sakha Saptapadi Bhav`; it indicates that the seven steps that we walk together during the "saptapadi` should always be our friends, should bring our minds close to each other, should make us comfortable towards each other, should help us to understand each other properly as a friend would. Those men who understand the meaning of "Sakha` will lead such a life; for them life will be no less than heaven itself, but those who do not understand the real meaning of the word "Sakha` will suffer. For them trudging along will in no way a pleasant experience, for them it will be walking on a hot iron plate. Before taking the seven steps of the "Saptapadi` the end of the bride`s saree is tied up in a firm knot to the shawl that the bridegroom carries over his shoulders. At any time, he can conveniently discard the shawl as he is just carrying it over his shoulders. But for a bride it is not easy. Even if she decides to discard it then she has to pay heavily for it. She has to take care of the shawl along with the knot or compensate for it; laboriously; even today

Dear friends, do you really want to read and understand Vapurza, then open it to any page, start reading. Do not ever consider to finish reading it in one sitting, from start to end. Never. Have you ever noticed the bottles of perfume lined up on some dressing tables, in some enthusiastic houses? What is the purpose behind having so many bottles lined up together? We use only one at a time. The purpose is to use the fragrance that the mind desires at a particular moment. This book is also like the lined up perfume bottles. Open it to the page that your mind desires. Get enveloped in the fragrance, enjoy it thoroughly. There is no binding of finishing reading that has been started. Enjoy it as and when and how much you wish, without any botheration or anxiety of `what next?`_x000D_ If your mind is taken away by a particular perfume, then do not hesitate, feel it again. You never know what you can come across while trying to find something anew. Keeping all these things in mind, there is no sequence, no index and no references given in this book, with the sole intention of allowing you a free mind for all the ideas, concepts and feelings._x000D_ And now a few words about the book by Va Pu himself._x000D_ "Dear Friends, the glass which is shown on the cover page is empty, you might be wondering why? The reason is it is ready to grasp every single word coming from the depths of the sky. The glass will always remain empty for new ideas if you try and keep it clean from all the under estimation about others and the overrating about yourself. Then the glass will be empty to capture the skies. I know that your minds were free from all such evil things; they were free for those many manifestations, I am indeed lucky to have some place in your mind. Dear Friends, bless me today that my glass will remain empty throughout, of all the bad and evil wishes, let it be free from all the misconceptions, egos and ill wills. Let it be ready forever to accept the blessings of the skies, always...

"आपापल्या मूडनुसार वेळेनुसार कोणतेही पान उघडावे न् तेवढेच वाचूनही वाचनानंद मिळवावा असे हे पुस्तक.'' कोणतंही पान उघडा आणि वाचा! ‘वपुर्झा’ हे पुस्तक कोणासाठी? ज्यांना मोत्यातील चमक बघायची आहे अशा वेड्यांसाठी! हे पुस्तक कसं वाचायचं? एका बैठकीत? अथ ते इति? एका दमात? छे! मुळीच नाही. काही हौशी घरांमध्ये ड्रेसिंग टेबलावर निरनिराळ्या अत्तरांच्या बाटल्या असतात. जसा मूड असेल तसं अत्तर वापरायचं किंवा जसा मूड व्हावासा वाटत असेल तसं अत्तर निवडायचं. हे पुस्तक असंच वाचायचं. हवं ते पान आपापल्या मूडनुसार उघडायचं आणि त्या सुगंधाने भारून जायचं. एखादा सुगंध पुन्हा घ्यावासा वाटला तर? पुन्हा शोधायचा. त्या शोधात आणखी काहीतरी सापडेल. म्हणूनच या पुस्तकात अनुक्रमणिका, क्रमांक, संदर्भ काहीही दिलेलं नाही. 


भगवद्गीता हा मानसशास्त्रावरील पहिला ग्रंथ होय.

संसार खरंच इतका अवघड आहे का? माणसाला नेमकं काय हवंय्? संपूर्ण आयुष्य संगीतमय करता येणार नाही का? एखाद्या मैफलीसारखं रंगवता येणार नाही का? आपल्या जन्मापूर्वी हे जग होतंच. आपण मेल्यानंतरही जगाचा कारभार तसाच चालू राहणार आहे. ह्या अवाढव्य रंगमंचावर आपली ‘एन्ट्री’ मधेच केव्हा तरी होते आणि ‘एक्झिट’ही. हे नाटक किती वर्षांचं, ते माहीत नाही. चाळिशी, पन्नाशी, साठी, सत्तरी..... सगळं अज्ञात. धडधाकट भूमिका मिळणार, की जन्मांधळेपणा, अपंगत्व, बुद्धीचं वरदान लाभणार, की मतिमंद? भूमिकाही माहीत नाही. तरी माणसाचा गर्व, दंभ, लालसा... किती सांगावं? कृष्णानं बासरीसहित आपल्याला पाठवलं; पण त्या सहा छिद्रांतून संगीत जन्माला येत नाही. षडरिपूंचेच अवतार प्रकट होतात. स्वतःला काहीही कमी नाही. स्वास्थ्याला धक्का लागलेला नाही. तरी माणसं संसार सजवू शकत नाहीत. आपण सारे अर्जुनच 

Arjun, the third amongst the Pandavas, stands for his skill of archery and is considered as one of the greatest warriors. The distinguished fighter, however, felt confused when the famous Mahabharat war was about to begin on the battlefield of Kurukshetra. He turned to his charioteer, Lord Krishna, for enlightenment. The Lord cleared all his doubts through the most instructive and interesting discourses that came to be known as the Bhagvad Gita. The author believes that in the present times our position is no better than Arjun. We face various problems in day to day life and like Arjun can not make up our minds on how to solve them. Ignorance, misrule, corruption, double standards and many such factors make our mundane life difficult. The author draws up parallel examples from the Mahabharata and attempts to offer solutions. The treatment of the themes in the essays is like that of Art Buchwald whose humour makes one smile and be serious at the same time.
By what name should I call you? `Partner`; actually we have no name; the name which we display as our own is given to the body, not to the soul. A young lady is like a cool breeze; which lingers around us, touches us, gives us pleasure but which cannot be hold. What is hell? It is the company of a third person when most undesired. Just remember friend, because you need me, I too need you. As you write more and more personal, it becomes more and more universal.

एकदा वाचून समाधान होऊ नये अशी फर्मास दिवाणी- कहाणी

तुला मी हाक कशी मारू ? पार्टनर ह्याच नावाने. आपल्याला खरं तर नावच नसतं. बारशाला नाव ठेवतात ते देहाचं. पोरगी म्हणजे झुळू्क. अंगावरून जाते. अमाप सुख देऊन जाते. पण धरून ठेवता येत नाही. आपल्याला हवा तेव्हा. तिसरा माणूस न जाणे. हाच नरक ! लक्षात ठेव दोस्त, तुला मी हवा आहे म्हणून मला तू हवा आहेस. AS YOU WRITE MORE AND MORE PERSONAL IT BECOMES MORE AND MORE UNIVERSAL. 

दोस्त यामध्ये विविध प्रकारच्या कथा आहेत. स्वतःचा, स्वतःच्या कुटुंबियांचा स्वाभिमान जपणारी, कोत्या स्वभावाची, हट्टी, बेडकासारखे विशिष्ठ आखलेले जग असणारी, परिस्थितीवर मात करणारी, तिला शरण जाणारी, चाकोरीबद्ध जीवनाविरुद्ध कंटाळून बंड करणारी अशी हि माणसे आहेत. या माणसांचे स्वभाव, त्यांची सुखदुःखे, त्यांच्या समस्या, त्यांची स्वप्ने हि आपल्या आजूबाजूलाच आढळणारी आहेत. त्यांच्या आयुष्यात घडणारे प्रसंग आपल्या आयुष्यात कधीतरी घडलेले असतात किंवा इतरांच्या आयुष्यात त्याचे प्रतिबिंब बघितलेले असते आणि म्हणून ती माणसे आपली वाटतात. छोट्याशा कथाबिजाचे फुलवत फुलवत भावस्पर्शी कथेत रुपांतर करण्याचे वपुंचे कसब व सामर्थ्य, सध्या सोप्या संवादातून जीवनाचे एखादे तत्वञान सांगण्याची त्यांची हातोटी, जीवनाकडे पाहण्याचा सकारात्मक दृष्टीकोन आपल्याला वेगळेच बळ देतो. कथासंग्रहाला ज्या कथेचे नाव दिले आहे; त्या कथेत या सर्वांचा परमोच्च बिंदू गाठला गेला आहे. `Dost` includes stories of people of various kinds. These are the people who preserve their pride and that of their families, who are narrow minded, stubborn and prefer to live within their own limits, who triumph over the situation and also surrender to it; these are the same people who even rebel against their routine lives. People of this nature, with their typical joys and sorrows, their problems and dreams can be found all around us. We find them close to us as we have either gone through the incidents taking place in their lives or we have seen a reflection of them in other lives. Va Pu`s ability and mastery of transforming a tiny seedling into a touching narrative, his skill of finding philosophy in a simple dialogue and his optimistic view of life gives us a different energy and power. The story, from which the title is derived, is the peak of all his mentioned proficiencies
‘फॅण्टसीज् म्हणजे चमत्कृतीत अडकणे न् त्यातून सुटका’

भूभूलैय्या हा वपू काळे यांच्या चमाकृतीप्रधान कथांच्या फँटसीजचा संग्रह.गेल्या वीस वर्षात वपुंनी लिहिलेल्या निवडक अश्याचा फँटसीजचा समावेश या संग्रहात करण्यात आला आहे.सद्य कालीन मध्यम वर्गीय माणसाला आहे त्या परिस्थितही जीवनाचा उत्कट आनंद कसा लुटता येईल हा जणू संदेश देण्यासाठी वपू काळेंच्या चामकृतीपूर्ण कथांचा अवतार आहे.मात्र हा संदेश देण्यासाठी वपुंनी या कथा लिहिलेल्या आहेत यांची बोचरी जाणीव वाचकाला कुठेही होत नाही.याचे श्रेय या कथांना दिलेल्या 'फँटसी' च्या अवगुंठनात आहे.वपू काळे यांच्या मिशिकील,खोडकर, निवेदनशैलीमुळे वाचक या कथांकडे खेचला जातो.मानवी चांगुलपणावर वपुंची श्रद्धा आहे.जीवनातील विरोधाभासाने ते भयचकित होतात, पण परमेश्वराच्या योजनेत काहीतरी हितकारक सूत्रे आहे याचीही त्यांना खात्री वाटते.त्यामुळे या साऱ्या व्यवहाराचे उदात्तीकरण करणे त्यांना विलोभनीय वाटते.त्यामुळे वाचकांची जीवनावरची श्रद्धा काळात नकळत दृढ होते.जीवनावर त्यांचे प्रेम बसते. लेखक कलावंताला यापेक्षा दुसरे काय हवे असते?....शंकर सारडा. 

This collection of stories by Va Pu is mainly a fantasybased. Since last 20 years, Va Pu has been writing. All his past stories with a common base of fantasy are included under this title. They give us the message to enjoy life in today`s world in a sugar coated way. whatever conditions we are, in whatever situations we are though. The whole credit goes to the sweet cover and not the fantasy. Va Pu has the ability of capturing people with his teasing words full of humour. The style he uses is that of a narration, which creates interest in reading these stories adding to the pleasure. Va Pu believes in the goodness of a mind. He is scared of the controversies of life; at the same time he is sure that destiny has some plans for everyone. That is why he enjoys glorifying the characters, the incidents unknowingly strengthening the foundation of hope in a human mind. His writing awakens the faith in life once more making us love our life, enjoy our life, and live our life. What else does an author need?
