          SUMMARY IN HINDI

भूमिकाः संगीत की दुनिया में बिस्मिल्लाह खाँ की‌ अपनी‌ एक खास पहचान है। उनका परिवार डुमराँव का‌ निवासी हैं। यह एक छोटा‌ सा कस्बा है जो ‌पटना‌ और वाराणसी के मध्य में बक्सर के पास सिथ्त है । बिस्मिल्लाह खां का जन्म अपने गांव ‌डुमराँव में हुआ था । बाल्यकाल में ही खाँ साहब अपने मामा के घर बनारस आ गये और जीवन के अंतिम दिनों तक वाराणसी में रहे। उनकी मृत्यु 21 अगस्त, 2006 को वाराण में हुई।
संगीत की क्षेत्र में उनकी कीर्तिमान सेवा के फलस्वरूप भारत सरकार द्वारा मई, 2001 में उन्हें ‘भारत रत्न’ ‌की सर्वोच्च नागरिक उपाधि से अलंकृत किया गया था।
सारांश:

1. मुगल सम्राट ने‌ अपने राजशाही क्षेत्र में पुंगीनामक वाद्ययंत्र के बजाये जाने पर रोक लगा दी थी। इस वाद्ययंत्र की ध्वनि ककंश थी और कानों को अप्रिय लगती थी। एक नाई उस राजघराने का अत्यंत आत्मीय जन बन गया था और राजमहल में वह बेरोकटोक आया जाया करता था। उसने इस वाद्ययंत्र में परिवर्तन लाने का विचार किया और इस दिशा में काम करने लगा। उसने लकड़ी की एक लम्बी नली चुनी जिसका मध्य भाग खोखला था। यह नली पुंगी से अपेक्षाकृत बड़ी भी थी। उसने उस नली के ऊपरी हिस्से में सात छोटे-बड़े छेद कर दिये। अब जब उसने अंगुलियों के संचालन से इन छेदों को नियंत्रित करते हुए उत्पन की तो उससे कोमल और कर्णप्रिय संगात की उत्पत्ति हुई ।
2. अपने इस नये वाद्ययंत्र को उस नाई ने राजदरबार में बादशाह के सामने इसकी प्रशंसा की । चूँकि यह वाद्ययंत्र पहली बार शाहंशाह के सामने एक नाई के द्वारा बजाया गया था, इसीलिए इसका नाम ‘ शहनाई ‘ रखा गया ।
शहनाई शादी-ब्याह एवं मन्दिरों में बजायी जाने लगी। अतः इसे मंगल वाद्य का दर्जा दिया गया और इसे दरबारी संगीत के रूप में भी स्वीकृति मिली। ‘ नौबत ‘ में बजने वाले वाद्ययंत्रों में शहनाई को भी स्थान मिल गया। इस कारण यह एक लोकवाद्य से ऊपर उठकर एक अधिकारिक वाद्ययंत्र के रुप में गिना जाने लगा।
बिस्मिल्लाह खाँ साहब को यह गौरव प्राप्त है कि उन्होंने शाश्त्रीय संगीत के स्र्वरों को इस फूँक- वाद्ययंत्र पर उतारा । यह अत्यंत कठिन कार्य था क्योंकि शाश्त्रीय संगीत के रागों को फूँक के माध्यम से किसी वाद्ययंत्र पर उतारना अपने -आप में कठिन एवं दु: साहस का कार्य था। इस प्रकार इस वाद्ययंत्र को शास्त्रीयता का आधार मिला । इसका श्रेय खाँ साहब को जाता है ।
3. जब बिस्मिल्लाह खाँ बालक थे तो डुमरांव स्थित बिहारीजी हैं जो डुमरांव के महराजा के आराध्य देव हैं। खाँ साहब के दादा रसूल बख्श खाँ डुमरांव रियासत के दरबार में शहनाई बजाते थे। अतः खाँ साहब की रुचि भी शहनाई वादन में जागृत हुई । इसी संगीत परिवार में बिस्मिल्लाह खाँ  का जन्म 21 मार्च ,1916  को हुआ ।
4. बाद में बिस्मिल्लाह खाँ की माँ अपने बेटे को लेकर बनारस चली आयीं और अपने मामा के संरक्षण में बालक बिस्मिल्लाह खाँ शहनाई वादन का प्रशिक्षण लेने लगे । उनके मामा का नाम रसूल बख्श था और बनारस के बाला जी मंदिर में शहनाई वादन के लिए नियुक्त किये गये थे। बाद में बिस्मिल्लाह खाँ  के लिए बालाजी मंदिर और मंगला माई का मन्दिर आकर्षण का केंद्र बन गया। गंगा के तट पर सीढ़ियों पर बैठ कर वे एकांत में घंटों रियाज करते थे और नीचे बहती गंगा जी की पवित्र धारा उनकों प्रेरणा देती थी ।
5. 14 वर्ष की आयु में बिस्मिल्लाह खाँ को सर्वप्रथम  इलाहाबाद की एक संगीत सभा में अपने मामा के साथ बजाने का सुअवसर मिला । कार्यक्रम की समाप्ति पर उस्ताद फैय्याज उस बालक को अपने पास बुलाया और उसकी पीठ ठोंकी । ” खूब अभ्यास करों तुम्हारा बड़ा नाम होगा।” भारत की आजादी के पहले वर्ष पर बिस्मिल्लाह खाँ को लालकी में शहनाई बजाने का सुअवसर मिला था  जिसमें पंडित जवाहरलाल नेहरू स्वयं उपस्थित थे ।
6. उसी समय से खाँ साहब देश-विदेश में अपना स्वतंत्र कार्यक्रम करने लगे। विदेश में उनका पहला कार्यक्रम अफगानिस्तान में आयोजित हुआ था। उनकी क्षमता और ख्याति से प्रभावित होकर प्रसिद्ध फिल्म निर्देशक विजय भट्ट ने ‘ गूँज उठी शहनाई ‘ नाम से एक फिल्म हो बना डाला । बिस्मिल्लाह खाँ की शहनाई पर आधारित इस फिल्म का गीत ‘ दिल का खिलौना हाय टूट गया ‘ को सर्वाधिक ख्याति मिली । इस फिल्म में  बिस्मिल्लाह खाँ की शहनाई का सफलतापूर्वक प्रयोग हुआ । इसके बाद बिस्मिल्लाह खाँ  की चारों ओर पुरस्कार बरसने  लगे। उनके शहनाई वादन के कार्यक्रम का आयोजन अमरिका  के लिंगन सेंटर हाँल में हुआ । उन्होंने मान्टियल में शहनाई का कार्यक्रम प्रस्तुत किया। केन्स के कला समारोह तथा ओसाका (जापान ) के व्यापार मेले में भी अपना कार्यक्रम पेश किया जिसे सराहना मिली । तेहरान में एक प्रेक्षागृह का नामकरण उस्ताद के नाम पर ‘ तहर मौसुकी बिस्मिल्लाह खाँ ‘ रखा गया ।
7. भारत सरकार द्वारा उन्हें क्रमशः पद्मश्री , पद्मभूषण , पद्म विभूषण की उपाधि से सम्मानित किया गया ‌। वर्ष 2001 में उन्हें भारत का सर्वोच्च नागरिक सम्मान ‘भारत रत्न ‘ से विभूषित किया गया।  यह भारत की दौलत और विरासत हैं। ” अब तो पश्चिमी देश के लोग भी भारत का संगीत सीखनें यहाँ आ रहे हैं।
8. यद्यपि खाँ साहब ने देश – विदेश की सर्वाधिक यात्रा की थी पर बनारस और डुमरांव के प्रति उनका विशेष आकर्षण था । वे कहा करते थे कि जब भी मैं विदेश जाता हूँ तो मुझे बनारस और गंगा की याद आती है और जब बनारस में रहता हूँ तो डुमरांव का ‘ मट्ठा मुझे खींचता है।
9. एक बार किसी ने उनसे पूछा, देश के विभाजन के बाद आप सपरिवार पाकिस्तान क्यों नहीं चले गए ? उन्होंने कहा कि एक बार वे सीमा पार गये थे । वहाँ पहुँचकर उन्होंने पाकिस्तानियों को ‘नमस्कार ‘ कहा और हिन्दुस्तानियों को ‘सलाम वालेकुम ‘ और एक घंटा रहकर अपने देश वापस आ गया ।
10. बिस्मिल्लाह खाँ एक सच्चे  इन्सान, एक सच्चे मुसलमान और एक सच्चे देशभक्त थे। वे हमारे देश की विशाल सांस्कृतिक परम्परा की धरोहर थे । ऐसी ही धार्मिक आस्था वाला सच्चा मुसलमान प्रतिदिन सुबह काशी विश्वनाथ मंदिर में शहनाई  बजाकर अपने दिन की शुरुआत खुदा की इबादत से करना पसन्द करता था ।

उस्ताद बिस्मिल्लाह खाँ ने कुछ यादगार संगीत कार्यक्रम देश और विदेश में किये हैं।
अफगानिस्तान की यात्रा उनकी पहली विदेश यात्रा थी । वहाँ इनके शहनाई वादन में वहाँ के सम्राट जहीर शाह इतने अभिभूत हो ग्रेड थे कि उन्होंने खाँ साहब को अमूल्य पारसी कारपेट  एवं अन्य स्मृति चिन्ह उपहार में दिये । बिस्मिल्लाह खाँ  के शहनाई वादन से प्रभावित होने वाले अफगानिस्तान के शाह मात्र अकेले व्यक्ति नहीं थे। फिल्म निदेशक, विजय भट्ट ने बिस्मिल्लाह खाँ की शहनाई वादन को एक संगीत समारोह में सुना और इतने आकर्षित हुए कि उन्होंने अपनी फिल्म का नाम ‘ गूँज उठी शहनाई ‘ रख दिया । इस फिल्म में खाँ साहब की संगीत रचना ‘ दिल का खिलौना हाय टूट गया ‘ ने देश भर में धूम मचा दी। फिल्म जगत में इस सफलता के बावजूद खाँ साहब ने मात्र दो फिल्मों में अपना संगीत दिया । वह था विजय भट्ट कृत फिल्म ‘ गूँज उठी शहनाई ‘ और विक्रम श्रीनिवास की कन्नड़ फिल्म —’ सनधी अपन्ना ‘ । बिस्मिल्लाह खाँ ने एक बार स्पष्ट रुप में कहा — ” मैं फिल्मीं दुनिया की चकाचौंध और वहाँ के कृत्रिम जीवन से कदापि समझोता नहीं कर सकता। ”
