Ba khonanda qissae az roman manzur meshavad. CHist in – janri nav oyo? Tabiist, ki chunin janr vujud nadorad. Vale, agar ba nazar bigirem, ki dar zindagi rukhdodi yagon chiz az imkon dur nest, qissae az romani «Ruze hast daroztar az qarn» mavridi nazar ast, ki dar majallai «Noviy mir» chop shuda bud.

«Surudi nosurudaro to okhir surudan» na hamesha muyassar megardad. Vale in dafa chunin imkoniyat dast dod. Va man …  in porai romani kuhnai «nav»-amro manzur mekunam. Boyad biguyam, ki dar qissa yake az rivoyathoi shifohii bodiyanishinon oid ba CHingizkhon, usturae, ki ba voqeiyati tarikh kam nisbat dorad, vale az khotirai mardum ziyod shahodat medihad, korbast shudaast.

Qatoraho dar in baru bum az garb ba sharq meraftandu az sharq ba garb…

Dar on shabhoi buronii bahmanmoh, hini uburi tumani safedi parron, ki bodho az hamvorii sardi Saroy barmekhezondand, qatorabonhoro jiddu jahdi ziyod lozim bud, to miyoni barftudahoi dashti bekaron nimistgohi Buroniro tashkhis bikunand. Qatorahoi nimishabii girdbodolud dar on tiragi, chun dar khobhoi nooromu puriztirob, meomadandu meraftand…

Dar chunin shabho dunyo guyo az besomonii azalii khesh bori digar tavlid meshud  –  dashti Saroy, dar bandi sardii nafasi khesh, uqyonusi purguborero memond, ki dar zadukhurdi purazobi nuru zulmot paydo shudaast…

Va dar on fazoi behududi biyobon har shab to sahar ravzanake dar nimistgoh rushani mekard; guyo on jo, pushti on tireza, kase bahasrat jon mekand, guyo on jo kase sakht bemor budu joi shishtan nameyoft yo az bekhobii mudhishe azob mekashid. On tirezai kulbayaki nazdi nimistgoh bud, ki khonadoni Abutolib Quttiboev mezist. Zanu bachahoyash, to sahar charogro khomush nakarda, rohi uro mepoidand, Zarifa shabi daroz chandin bor piltai charog toza mekard. Va har bor, dar rushnoii har shulai nav, nigohi u beikhtiyor dar rui kudakoni masti khobash qaror megirift – du pisari sarsiyohakash, chun du barracha, orom mekhuftand. Tahi yak kurtai tahpush badanash ba larza medaromad va u, dastonashro ba sari sina fishurdavu dar khud halqa zada, ba dahshat meaftod, ba bachahakhosh nigarista, metarsid, ki padarashonro khob mebinand, dar khob bo tamomi quvvat suyash  medavand, dastakonashonro bol karda, giristavu khandida, bahsmabahs metozand, vale hej ba u namerasand…

Dar bedoriashon onho az har qatorai rohguzare, ki aqallan nim daqiqa dar istgohashon meistod, furomadani padarro muntazir meshudand. Hanuz qatora naistoda, bachayakon nazdi tireza kalla mekashidandu tayyor budand az dilu jon ba istiqbolash bitozand. Vale padarashon nameomad, ruzho meguzashtandu az u darake nabud, guyo tahi tarmai banogah kandai kuh monda budu kase namedonist in hodisa bo u dar kujo va kay rukh dodaast…

Va boz yak tireza, tirezai panjarai ohanidore dar gushai digari dunyo, dar nimtahkhonai mahbasi taftishotii Almaato niz on shabho to sahar rushan bud. Raso yak moh injonib Abutolib Quttiboev az nuri charogi puriqtidori barqi, ki dar saqfi mahbas furuzon bud, ranj mekashid. Duoi bade bud, ki giriftash. Namedonist sarashro ba kujo bizanad, chashmoni ranjurgashtavu sari sakhtashro az nuri suzonu burroni barq chi guna himoyat bikunad, to aqallan yak lahza khudro faromush bisozadu az yod bubarad, ki baroi chi in jost va az u chi mekhohand. SHabho, hamin ki kurtaashro ba sar kashida, ru sui devor mekard, hamono noziri mahbas barqoso ba kamera medaromadu uro, az kati chubi poyon afkanda, zeri lagad megirift: «Ruyatro sui devor nakun, palid! Saratro napushon, vlasovchii murdor!» Va harchand dodu faryod mekard, ki vlasovchi nest u, ononro ba in kore nabud.

Va boz, ru ba nuri beamoni barq ovarda, yak kame chashmoni beholshudayu varamidaashro nimpush karda, az dilu jon dar orzui torikiston, dar havasi dunyoi tip-toriki benure meshud; gur ham boshad, maylash, gure, ki dar on chashmonu mayna az mavjudiyat bozmemonand va on goh yagon noziru yagon mufattish imkon nadorad giriftori in azobi toqatfarso – rushnoii mudhishu bekhobiyu latukubhoyash bikunad.

Noziron banavbat ivaz meshudand, vale yake az digare batar bud – yagon nafarash zarrae rahm nadosht, yagontaash ru sui devor gardondani mahbusro nodida vonamud karda nametavonist, baraks, hamaashon, guyo haminro intizor budand, ki darhol bo khashmu haqorat ba latukub mepardokhtand. Abutolib Quttiboev, bo vujudi on ki mohiyatu vazifai noziri mahbasro medonist, bazan navmedona az khud mepursid: «Baroi chi in kheland onho? Ba zohir odamand-ku! CHi guna chunin zolim shudan mumkin boshad? Okhir, man ba yagontaashon badi nakardaam. To hol onho maro namedonistandu man – onhoro, vale chunon mezanandu tahqir mekunand, ki guyo qasdi azali doshta boshand. Baroi chi? Az kujo paydo meshavand chunin odamon? CHi khel in guna beshafqatu zolim meshavand? Baroi chi maro in qadar azob medihand? CHi khel toqat kunam, ki devona nashavam yo saramro ba devor zada mayda nakunam?! Iloji digar nest, okhir».

Bore u digar toqat nakard. Guyo dar vujudash barqi suzon shulavar shud. Hudash bekhabar mond, ki ba noziri jabbor daraftodaast. Hardu, garmi aftudaraft, khele rui farsh gel zadand. «Dar jang duchoram meshudi-ku, sagi devona barin meparrondamat!» – bo ovozi girifta meguft Abutolib, gireboni gimnastyorkai nozirro qarsas darrondavu guluyashro bo angushtoni karakhti khesh fishurda. Agar du nozir az dolon rasida nameomadand, malum nabud, ki on girudor bo chi meanjomid.

Abutolib tanho ruzi digar ba khud omad. Nakhustin chize, ki zimni torikivu dardi jonkoh did, hamon charogi furuzoni saqf bud. Bad feldsherro did, ki dar boloi sarash junbujul dosht.

– Hob kun, khob kun, aknun aniq az safari on dunyo bargashti, – ohista guft u, pakhtai tarbandiro ba peshonii majruhash monda, – Minbad in khel ahmaqi ahmaq nashav. Haq doshtand baroi hujum  ba posbon dar joyat biparronand, sag barin memurdivu kase ham surogat namekard. SHukri Tansiqboev kun, ki ba u jasadat ne, khudat darkori. Fahmidi?

Abutolib bekhudona khomush bud. Ba u digar farqe nadosht, ki chi rukh medihadu qismatash chi khel surat megirad. Ehsosi dard der goh vujudashro tark karda bud.

Hamon ruzho, ki goh-goh aqlash tira meshud, beehsosivu nimmadhushi najotash dod. Dar chunin lahzaho Abutolib mekushid az nuri didasuz nagurezadu pinhon nashavad, balki ba istiqboli anvori berahmu jabbor, ki aqlashro merabud, mayl mekard va chunin menamudash, ki ba sarchashmai dardu azobho rasidavu az khud guzashta, dar osmon par mezanad, to qudrati befosilai rushnoii didasuzro bartaraf bisozadu ba adam bipayvandad.

Vale dar chunin lahzaho ham dar hushu yodi afgorash rishtayaki vosili hasratu khavotirii dilfishoru qarini khonadonu farzandon uro bo ruzgore, ki darguzashta bud, mepayvast.

Bandi hasrati toqatnopaziri onho, ki dar Saroy monda budand, Abutolib mekushid khudro khud mahkum bikunad, gunohi kheshro daryobad, jahd mekard javob bidihad, ki baroi chi u boyad mujibi jazo boshad. Va posukh nameyoft. Ba juz asorat, asorati nemisho, ki dar qatori hazoron muhosirashudagoni digar vay niz mahkumash gardida bud. Vale baroi in chi qadar metavon jazo dod? Jang kayho khotima yofta, jurmho niz – bo narkhi khunu mashaqqati lagerho – jubron shudaand, hamai onhoero, ki dar on jang budand, kayho yak po ba labi gur rasidaast, vale hokimi mutlaq hamono qasd megiradu hej taskin nameyobad.

Vagarna, in hama chi mani dorad? Dar javobi khesh darmonda, Abutolib dar dil orzue meparvarid, ki imruz-pagoh  sahvi bo u rafta malum meshavad, on goh u, Abutolib Quttiboev, omoda ast hama ranju ozorro bubakhshad, zudtar ozodash kunandu ba khona firistand, shud; va u hamono on jonib, nazdi farzandonu oilai khesh, ba Saroy, ba nimistgohi Buroni, ki bachahoyash Ermaku Dovul va zanash Zarifa chashm ba rohand, meshitobad; balki ne, bol barovarda, parvoz mekunad; jonibi Zarifa par mekushoyad, ki dar on dashti qahratun farzandonro, chun murg chujayakonashro, zeri bol giriftavu bo ashki suzon va tavalloi bepoyon mekushad qismatro mutaassiru mutaqidu narmdil bisozad, ruzu shab rui rahmi khudoro mekhohad, ki shavharash raho biyobad…

Baroi on ki banogah faryod nazanadu devona nashavad, Abutolib, ba umedi daryofti osoishi firebo, boz garqi orzu gardid – rushan tasavvur kard, ki chi khel u, bino bar begunohi, safed shuda, nogahon khonaash meravad; chi khel az pomonaki qatorai borkash, ki to on diyorhoyash burdaast, parida, sui khonaash meshitobadu zanu bachahosh ba istiqbolash metozand… Vale lahzahoi khayol meguzashtandu u, chun az sarkhushi, boz ba dunyoi voqe bargashta, az nav bandi navmedi meshud va hamono az dilash meguzasht, ki  «Qatl dar Saroy»,  on qissae, ki u rui kogaz ovarda bud, on anduhu azobi modaru padari mahkumi qatl va vidoyashon bo navzodi khesh kim-chii jovidonaero dorost, ki aknun ba u ham dakhl dorad. U ham kushtai hajru judoist… Okhir, juz marg digar hej chizu hej kas haq nadorad volidonro az farzandon judo bikunad…

Dar chunin lahzai talkh Abutolib khomushona megiristu peshi khud sharmida, namedonist sirishkashro, ki dar yak dam rukhsorahoyashro tar mekard, chi khel bozdorad. Okhir, hatto dar jang chunin azob nakashida bud u, chunki on vaqt yak sari qoqi khudash budu khalos va aknun toraft beshtaru beshtar bovar hosil mekard, ki buzurgtarin manii zindagi dar zuhuroti az nazari avval muqarrari – farzandon nihon ast va, dar har holati mushakhkhas har kase bakhti khudro dorost – bakhti farzanddori va niz har kase fojiai khudro dorad – fojiai mabodo be onho mondan… Aknun u ba on chiz ham bovar mekard, ki zindagi, qabl az bokhtani on, hangome ki dar okhirin soat, zeri nuri vopasinu dilgiri qabl az raftani noguzir ba zulmot, jambasti natoij faro merasad, chi qimate dorad. Farzandonand natijai asosii zindagi.

SHoyad tabiat makhsus chunin ast, ki volidon hayotashonro sarfi parvarishi idomai khesh mekunand. Va volidro az mavludash rabudan manoi az imkoni ijroi mohiyati azaliash mahrum kardani u, zindagiashro behudavu bebor namudan ast. Dushvor bud dar chunin lahzahoi bedorii fikr navmed nashudan; Abutolib, mutaassirona sahnai didorro qarib peshi nazar tasavvur karda, hamzamon imkonnopazirii vuqui umedashro dark menamudu qurbonii beiloji meshud. Huznu hasrat ruz ba ruz amiqtar dilashro faro megiriftu irodaashro susttaru susttar mekard. Navmediash, chun barfe, ki dar pechukhamhoi kuh jam meshavad–jam meshavadu dar namudi tarma banogah furu megaltad, toraft meafzud…

Mahz hamin darkor bud ba mufattishi vazorati bekhatarii davlat Tansiqboev; mahz haminro noil shudan mekhost u, parvandai bo rozigii sardoroni volomaqomi khesh makkorona boftaashro oid ba aloqai asiri sobiqi harbi Abutolib Quttiboev bo khadomoti makhsusi anglisu yugoslavi va amaliyoti vayronkorii goyavi miyoni mardumi tahjoi nohiyahoi durdasti Qazoqiston gozu pardoz doda. Hamin khel bud manidodi umumi. Kori taftishot oid ba aniqu mushakhkhas namudani baze nuktaho idoma dosht, kullan etirof kardani Abutolib Quttiboev jinoyati kheshro dar pesh bud, vale, az hama muhimash, allakay dar khudi manidodi jinoyati favquloda muhimmi siyosi, ki az hushyorivu kordonii mustasnoi Tansiqboev shahodat medod, bayon shuda bud. Va agar baroi Tansiqboev in parvanda barori bemisli zindagi boshad, Abutolib Quttiboevro domevu halqai mahkumie bud, zero natijai chunin manidodi mudhish faqat purra ba gardan giriftani jinoyat va kashidani jazoi on meshudu bas. Natijai digare imkon nadosht. Dar chunin mavridho khudi gunohborkuni daleli bebahsi jinoyat bud.

Bino bar in, Tansiqboev metavonist gami anjomi khubi korashro nakhurad. On zimiston oqibat  bakhti u khandid. Baroi jurmake dar khidmat chandin sol bud, ki az rutbai mayor bolo nameraft. Aknun – roh kushoda. Dar in mavzei durdast ba parvandai Abutolib Quttiboev monand chizero nachandon bazudi daryoftan mumkin bud. Hudo bidihad, nameguyad bachai kii…

Ore, metavon guft, ki dar on ruzhoi bahmanmohi soli 1953 tarikh ba Tansiqboev lutf kard; guyo tarikhi kishvar baroi hamin ham vujud dosht, ki muteona ba manfiati u khidmat bikunad. U, beshtar bo farosat, in lutfi tarikhro, ki ahamiyati avvalindarajai khidmatashro ruz ba ruz meafzud va bo hamin etiborashro nazdi khudash toraft balandtar mekard, ehsos menamudu qabat-qabat gusht megirift va bolidaruh meshud. Bazan, ba oina nazar karda, ba hayrat meomad – chashmoni shunqorii teznigohash der boz chunin javonona namedurakhshidand. Va u, kitfonashro rost kardavu sari sina damonda, qanoatmandona zeri lab ba zaboni tozai rusi zamzama menamud: «Mi rojdeni, chtob skazku sdelat bilyu…» Zanash, ki shariki umedhoi u bud, niz ruhbalandona meguft: «Boke ne, ba qaribi mo ham haqamonro megirem». Hatto pisarash, ki dar sinfhoi bolo mekhondu komsomoli faol bud, harchand ki gohu nogoh gapnoshunavi mekard, chun sukhan az orzui derinaash meraft, muassir mepursid: «Dada, kay bo podpolkovniki tabrik mekunem?» In hama sababhoi mushakhkhase dosht, ki bevosita ba Tanqisboev vobasta nabud, vale, bo vujudi in…

Gap dar in ki ba nazdiki, yagon nim sol peshtar, dar Almaato mahkamai pushida doir shud: tribunali harbi guruhi millatgaroyoni burjuazii qazoqro sud kard. On dushmanoni ahli zahmat berahmona va abadi reshakan karda shudand. Du nafar, baroi ba qazoqi navishtani osori ilmiashon, ki guzashtai manfuri patriarkhali-feodaliro bar zarari voqeiyati nav arj medod, mahkumi jazoi oli – parrondan, du khodimi ilmii pajuhishgohi zabonu adabiyoti Farhangistoni ulum bistupanjsoli badarga shudand… Digaron dahsoli giriftand… Vale mohiyati kor on bud, ki vobastai sud az markaz baroi khodimoni makhsusi dar ifshovu berahmona reshakan kardani millatgaroyoni burjuazi mustaqiman ishtirokdoshta mukofothoi davlati qator shud. Rost, ki mukofotho niz makhfi budand, vale in etiborashonro zarrae kam namekard. Pesh az muhlat dodani unvonhoi navbati, ordenu medalho, mukofothoi kaloni puli baroi ijroi namunavii suporishot, tashakkurnoma va digar nishonahoi diqqatu etibor zindagiro besh az budash zeb dodand. Ba peshsafoni maraka dodani khonahoi nav niz ayni muddao bud. In hama dastu dilro baquvvat, ovozro balandtar, taq-taqi poshnaro dilpuronatar mekard.

Tanqisboev dar guruhi unvonu mukofotgiriftagon  nabud, vale dar tantanahoi hamkasbon faolona ishtirok menamud. Qarib har begohi uvu zanash Oyqumis ba «shustan»-i navbatii unvonu orden va yo buryokubon meraftand. Silsilai tantanahoi idona, ki hanuz dar arafai Soli nav shuru shud, bisyor zebovu khotirnishin bud. Mehmonon, ki dar kuchahoi sardu toriki Almaato khunuk 0khurda meomadand, az ostona ba garmii istiqboli sohiboni khushruzi khonahoi nav sarafroz meshudand. CHi qadar durakhshu zindadiliyu iftikhor merekht az ruyu chashmone, ki dar ostona mehmononro peshvoz megiriftand! Dar haqiqat, on hama tantanai khoson bud, ki bori digar mazzai bakhtro mechashidand. Dar on zamon, ki hanuz qahtivu gushnagii solhoi jang az yodho narafta bud, osudaholii navu odatinashuda dar gushahoi duri kishvar makhsusan bo tantanayu qanoatmandi istiqbol meshud. Dar in muzofotho konyakhoi qimati khushnav, zarfu qandilhoi ganimati nemisi furu merekht, rui mizho, ki bo dastarkhonhoi sap-safed pushida budand, majmuzarfhoi boz ham ganimati nemisi medurakhshidand va hamai in kasro maftun mekardu ba ruhiyai bolidae moil mesokht, ki guyo manii azalii dunyo hamin astu dar hama olam juz hamin digar chizi loiqi tavajjuhe buda ham nametavonad.

Hanuz az dolon bui khushi matbakh ba dimog mezad; dar on jo, gayri digar khurdaniho, hatman shohi taomho – beshbarmoq – khuroki boboi mepukhtand, ki merosi zindagii kuchmanchiyona budu dar in chordevorihoi nav ham bui khushi kuhiston meparokand. Va hoziron, mazzai shomonai sarjamonaro tasavvur karda, bo tamkinu viqori mehmon menishastand. Vale mohiyati ziyofat natanho va na chandone dar taom bud, zero, odam, ki ser shud, botinan az farovonii khurdanihoi peshash azob mekashad; balki manii in hama nishastho dar guftorhoi mutantan – tabrikotu orzuhoi nek ifoda meyoft. In marosim kim-chizi hamesha shirinero dar khud nihon medosht va in hisi shirin hama on ehsosero, ki dar dil nihon bud, ba khud mekashidu dar khesh hal mekard. Hatto hasad muvaqqatan guyo ba iltifot tabdil meyoftu rashk – ba rafoqat, duruyagi lahzae ba samimiyat mubaddal megasht. Va har yake az hoziron ba tarzi ajibe tarifbob meshudu to tavonistan baaqlonatar va muhimash – zebo nutq mekard va beikhtiyor ba musobiqai elonnashudae bo digaron mepardokht. Ajab sahnahoi fattone budand on nishastho! CHi nushbodhoi olijanobe, chun murgoni khushparubol, sui saqfi qandildor par mekushodand, chi nutqhoi zeboe, hozironro giriftori ohangi mutantani khesh namuda, jori meshudand.

Tansiqboevu zanashro khosa nushbodi yak podpolkovniki navrutbai qazoq, ki botantana az pasi miz barkhosta, chunon muassiru boviqor sukhanroni namud, ki guyo hunarpeshai teatri drom budu naqshi shohi masnadnishinero meofarid, maftun kard.

Mefahmed! Va man sukhan kardan mekhoham. In lahza soati bakhti man ast va man gapamro meguyam. Meguyam, ki man hamesha dahri budam. Komsomol tarbiyaam kardaast. Man bolsheviki matinam. Mefahmed! Va bo in bisyor mefakhram. Baroi man khudo vujud nadorad. Nabudani khudo ba hama, ba har yak maktabbachai soveti malum. Vale man chizi digar guftan mekhoham, mefahmed… guftan mekhoham, ki khudo hast dar dunyo! Mefahmed… Man khudoero dar nazar nadoram, ki istismorgaroni ommahoi mehnatkash pesh az inqilob bofta barovardaand. Hudoi mo sohibhukumatest, ki az qudratash, chunon ki gazetaho menavisand, dar sayyora davrai nav sar meshavad va mo, galaba to galaba, ba sui tantanai jahonii kommunizm meravem; on shakhs dohii benaziri most, ki lajomi davron dar dastash ast, chunon ki sorbon inoni nakhustushturi korvonro ba dast dorad; on shakhs Iosif Vissarionovichi most! Va mo az pai u meravem, u korvonro rahnamoi  mekunadu mo yakdilona az pasi u roh mebarem. Va har kase, ki digar khel fikr mekunad yo dar sar andeshahoi begona dorad, az shamsheri sazobakhshi chekisti, ki Dzerjinskiyi ohaniniroda ba mo yodgor guzoshtaast, amon nameyobad. Mefahmed… Mo ba dushmanon muborizai beamon elon kardaem. Avlodi onho, oilahoi onho va har guna unsurhoi khayrkhohi onho, ba khotiri kori proletari, chunon ki barghoi khazonro tiramoh tuda-tuda mesuzand, nestu nobud karda meshavand. Mefahmed… Baroi on ki ideologiya faqat yaktost, ideologiyai digar nest! Bino bar in, movu shumo rui zaminro az dushmanoni ideologi – millatchiyoni burjuazi va gayravu hokazo… mefahmed… toza mekunem, ba dushman, dar kujoe, ki pinhon nashavad, niqobi kasero, ki ba ru nakashad, yagon rahmu shafqat nest. Dar hama jo dushmani sinfiro fosh kardanu josusoni dushmanro rui ob barovardan… mefahmed… chi khele ki rafiq Stalin talim medihad, dushmanro kuftanu ruhi ommahoi mehnatkashro mustahkam namudan! – ana, hamin ast shiori mo. Imruz, ki maro qadrdoni kardandu farmoni pesh az muhlat dodani unvoni navro khondand, savgand yod mekunam, ki bemaylon bo rohi stalini meravam… mefahmed… dushmanro koftavu yofta, niyathoi jinoyatkoronaashro fosh mesozam va u, baroi on niyathoi iflos, jazoi sakhtu sazovor megirad. Mefahmed… mo millatchiyoni asosiro bezarar karda boshem ham, institutu redaksiyaho puri khayrkhohonashon ast. Vale onho ham az mo khalosi nadorand va mo ba onho yagon zarra rahmu shafqat namekunem. Bore, dar yak pursuju, yak millatchi… mefahmed… ba man meguyad, ki khohed-nakhohed, tarikhi shumo rahgum mezanad va khudaton, chun iblis, ba nafrat giriftor meshaved. Mefahmed?!

– In khelashro dar joyash parrondan lozim bud! – Toqat nakard Tansiqboev va hatto bo khashm nimkhez shud.

– Durust, mayor, man niz hamin khel mekardam, – dastgiri namud uro podpolkovnik, – vale vay hanuz baroi taftishot darkor bud va man ba u guftam… mefahmed… ba u guftam, ki to mo rahgum mezanem, nishoni tu, palid, dar in dunyo namemonad! Sag mejakadu korvoni stalini meravad…

Hama yakbora, mazammati sazovori on millatchii noshudro maqul daryofta, shodona khandidandu chak-chak zadand, hama, jomhoi sarshor dar dast, yakbora barkhostand. «Baroi Stalin!» – nafas berun kardand hama yakbora, to okhir nushidand va guyo bo hamin haqqoniyati nushbod va sadoqati kheshro ba on tasdiq mekarda boshand, jomhoi kholiro ba hamdigar nishon dodand.

Badan dar idomai on fikr bisyor sukhanon gufta shud. Va on sukhanon, khud ba khud paydovu afzun shuda, to der boloi sari hoziron davr mezadand. On sukhanon, chun oilai baqahromadai zanburhoi vahshi, ki az afzunivu zahroginii khud beshtar khashmi meshavand, gazabi nihoniero dar khesh jam meovardand.

Dar vujudi Tanqisboev amvoji pechone tugyon menamud, uro fikrhoi khudash beqaror medoshtand va in hama qatiyatashro meafzud. Na az on bois, ki chunin guftorhoro nav meshunid, baraks, kulli hayoti uvu hamkhidmatoni beshumorash misli hayoti mardumi girdu atrofashon ruz ba ruz mahz dar hamin muhiti shurondani bardavomu muborizai beamone meguzasht, ki sinfiash mekhondandu bino bar in, komilan haqqoni shumurda meshud. Vale rozi nihone bud in jo. Baroi avji muboriza mavridu jarayonhoi navi oshkorkuniho lozim bud; azbaski bisyor jihathoi in kor allakay amali va tamomi vositaho, to ba zuran firistodani khalqhoi alohida ba badargahoi margovari Sibiru Osiyoi Miyona, tajriba shuda bud, ba tarzi kuhna aybhoi bozorgiri baru bumhoi milli – millatgaroii burjuazi-feodaliro korbast karda, kullan muvaffaq shudan toraft dushvor megardid.

Baraks, bisyoriho az had ziyod, ba darajae ehtiyotkoru bamulohiza shuda budand, ki ba ovozi baland kulli arzishhoi milli, hatto zaboni modariashonro rad mekardand. CHi khel dast megiri shakhsero, ki dar har qadam mahz bo zaboni Lenin sukhan guftanu fikr rondanashro zikr mekunad…

Mahz dar hamin zamoni kamvoqeavu baroi avji muboriza bahri oshkor kardani dushmanoni navi nihoni mushkil, tasoduf ham boshad, bakhti mayor Tansiqboev khandid. Ariza az boloi Abutolib Kuttiboevro ba dasti u aslan chun mavodi mohiyatan duyumdaraja, na ba maqsadi ogozi taftishi jiddi, balki beshtar baroi shinosoi doda budand. Vale Tansiqboev fursati muvofiqi umrashro az dast nadod. Va farosatash uro nafirebid. Tansiqboev, tanbali nakarda, baroi taftish ba joi voqea raft va aknun toraft beshtar bovar hosil mekard, ki in parvandai dar nigohi avval nazarnogir, agar khub tahlilu tafsir bishavad, vazni zarur khohad daryoft. Va, az aftash, kor agar tabi dil biravad, u ham az mukofothoi bolo benasib namemonad. Magar u hamin holo, pasi ana hamin miz, shohidi chunin tantana nest, magar u namedonad, ki chunin korho chi khel surat megirand? Magar khush nest u bo in shinosoni khubash, ki az dilu jon ba Hudo-Hokimiyat sodiqandu dar soyai lutfash rui mizu saqfashon purbulur ast va khud kayfu safo dorand? Vale ba Hudo–Hokimiyat tanho bo yak roh – tavassuti khidmati iflosu sobitqadamona bahri daryoftu ifshoi dushmanoni niqobpush metavon darrasid.

Va az dushmanon bodiqqatonatar onhoero nazorat kardan darkor, ki dar asorat budand. Onho khud allakay jinoyatkori tayyorand, chunki yak tir ba peshonii khud nazadand;  uhdador budand onho bimirandu asir naaftand va bo hamin sadoqati tamomashonro ba Hudo-Hokimiyat, ki murdanu asir nashudan talabi bechunucharoyash bud, sobit bisozand. Va kase, ki asir shud, jinoyatkor astu jazoi noguzirash baroi in hushdori umrbodest tamomi naslhoro. CHunin ast talimoti dohi – Hudo-Hokimiyat. Quttiboev, ki zeri dasti ust, ana az jumlai hamin sobiq asironi harbist va, muhimmash, dar parvandai u yak rishtai zaruri, bisyor yak juzi darkhurdi zamon hast – agar etirofi Quttiboevro dar in khusus, bigzor kame ham boshad, noil shudan dast dihad, chun kalidi parvandai kalon ba kor meoyad. On baroi ifshoi naqshahoi az azal khoinonai revizionistii dastai Tito-Rankovich, ki be maslihati Stalin ba rohi khosi peshrafti YUgoslaviya davo dorand, khidmat khohad kard. Bubin-a, chi khostaand! Jang nav tamom shudaastu ishon – allakay judo shudani. Nasibaton namekunad! Stalin in maqsadro ba khokistar mubaddal mesozadu ba bod medihad. Zimnan, barjo mebud, agar bori digar, bo daleli andake ham boshad, isbot bishavad, ki ideyahoi khoinonai revizionisti dar YUgoslaviya bisyor barvaqt, hanuz solhoi jang dar bayni komandirhoi partizanho tavlid shudaand va in hama zeri tasiri bevositai khadamoti makhsusi anglis surat giriftaast. Dar yoddoshthoi Abutolib Quttiboev lahzae hast, ki partizanhoi yugoslavi bo anglisho vomekhurand, yane, majburash kardan mumkin, ki chizi baroi imruz zarurro iqror bikunad. Hamin khel ki hast, bo chi rohe boshad, iqrorashro noil shudan darkor. Sarro ba devor zadan ham lozim oyad, in qalamfarsoi saroyiro majbur boyad kard, ki chizi zaruriro biguyad. Dar siyosat hama chize, ki ba rafti ob ast, kor meoyad. Maydatarin dalel metavonad okhirin sange boshad, ki dushmanro dar girudori mafkuravi az po meaftonad. Bino bar in, vazifai ba dast ovardani on sang va yo, bigzor, sangchaho va, ramzi boshad ham, bo dasti khud, az dilu jon ba dasti Hudo-Hokimiyat dodani on sangchai izofa ba miyon meoyad, to khudash ham nazanad, kasi darkoriro bifarmoyad, ki bo on  dumravoni revizionistoni manfur Tito va hamtabaqash Rankovichro bikubad. Agar darkor nashavad, meguyand, ki az had mayda ast, lekin jiddu jahdro ba nazar megirand… On goh mebini, ki ahli in nishast mehmoni u shudaandu on munosibati olijanobro qayd dorand. Okhir, manii zindagi khushbakhtist, muvaffaqiyat boshad, ogozi bakht ast.

Dar hamin bora meandeshid on shabi mehmoni Tansiqboevi shunqorchashm va, pushti miz nishastavu har zamon miyoni suhbat luqmaho partofta, misli shinovari daryoi purtugyon, on lahza dar girdobi hirsu ragbati khesh shino mekard. Va tanho zanash Oyqumis, ki shavharashro khub medonist, pay burd, ki bo u kim-chi rukh dodaast va, chun darrandai khashmi, ki nimashab ba shikor baromadavu bui saydro giriftaast, ba kadom yak iqdome tayyori mebinad. Zanak inro dar chashmoni u, ki nigohi ustuvori shunqoronaashon goh sard meshudu goh bo dudi ehtiros pushida, didu pichirros zad: «Hamrohi hama mekhezemu rost khona meravem». Tansiqboev bo dili nokhoham sar junbond. Dar peshi mardum etiroz nakard, harchand ki lozim bud. Dar maynaash naqshai navu vasetari amaliyot takmil meyoft. Okhir, hamrohi Quttiboev boz bisyor kason dar hayati partizanhoi yugoslavi budand, harchand ki imruz az mushkhonahoyashon namebaroyand, mantiqan onho niz baze chizhoro medonandu ba khotir ovarda metavonand. Quttiboevro majbur kardan dushvor nest, ki faoltarinhoyashonro biguyad. Mavodi zaruriro omukhtan darkor, khudi pagoh darkhost boyad dod. Va yo shakhsan harchi zudtar ba markaz boyad raft. Koftavu yofta, Quttiboevro majbur namudan lozim, ki nuktahoi darkoriro tasdiq kunad.  Dar asosi shahodati u, asironi sobiqi harbiro, ki dar YUgoslaviya jangidaand, gunahkor namuda, baroi hangomi taftishi komissiyai bozgardondanashon ba Ittifoqi Soveti khabar nadodanu pinhon kardani niyathoi khoinonai revizionisthoi yugoslavi ba javobgari kashidan lozim. In nav odamon shoyad hazoron nafar boshand, meboyad in fikrro – zudtar va behtarash dar shakli khatchai makhfi – ba bolo rasond; hamai onhoro az osiyobi pursishho guzaronida, ba lagerho hay kardanu ba in kor khotima guzoshtan darkor…

In fikr, ki dar sari  mizi pur az anvoi khurdaniyu nushidani az dilash guzasht, Tansiqboev ruhbalandi ehsos kard, az rohatu ehsosi qablii gardishi nave dar zindagiash boz nushidanu khurdanu surudanu bo hamnishinho shukhi namudanash omad. Vay hamnishinhoro bo nigohi chashmoni purasror durakhshonash az nazar guzarond; hama hoziron khudi, azizu qarin, az yak khok va, az in ru, on lahza chunin dilju budand va in odamoni ba jonu dil nazdik pay nameburdand, ki shohidi lahzai tavlidi fikrhoi buzurgi uyand. Az in ehsos khuni garm dar sarash tugyon mekardu dili shodu purfarahash teztar mezad.

In niyat Tansiqboevro hatman ba zinai baland-tari martaba   meburd. Kori baaqlonayu mantiqi: har qadare ki dushmani pinhonshudaro bezarar gardoni, hamon qadar khud burd mekuni. CHunin peshomad dilro purfarah mekard. Va u bo iftikhor az dil guzarond: «Odamoni baaql, ana, hamin khel kor mekunand! Man niz, hazor mushkil ba saram biyoyad ham, az in roh namegardam!» Hohishe paydo shud, ki betakhir ba kor sar bikunad – hamono moshin jeg bizanadu ba on jo, ba nimtahkhonai tirezahoyash panjarador, ki izolyatori taftishoti nom doradu Abutolib Quttiboev on jost, bishitobad va hamin zamon ba kor shuru binamoyad – yagon lahzaro az dast nadoda, dar khudi hamon jo, dar kamera ba istintoq bipardozad, chunon istintoqe, ki az tarsash dar badani mahbus jon namonad. Va ruirost farjomi korashro biguyad: agar Quttiboev gunohashro ba gardan bigiradu suporishhoi Angliyavu YUgoslaviya-ro iqror kunad va hamai onhoero, ki hamrohash partizani mekardand, biguyad, muvofiqi moddai 58, bandi 1 «b» 25 sol mahkumii lager megirad, agar ne – baroi khiyonat, hamkorii josusi bo khadamoti makhsusi khoriji va vayronkorii mafkuravi miyoni aholii mahal parronda meshavad. Bigzor nagzakak fikr kunad.

Jarayoni in hodisotro tasavvur karda, Tansiqboev bisyor chizhoro peshbini namud: ham chi khel surat giriftani bozpursi,  ham yakravi kardani Quttiboevu chorahoero, ki baroi shikastani u ba kor burdan lozim meoyad; vale hamzamon  medonist, ki mahbusash rohi gurez nadorad, zinda mondan bikhohad, yagona ilojash hamin ast. Albatta, yakravona khudro safed mekunad, ki gunohe nadorad, gunohi asoratro, siloh ba dast, dar jangi yakjoya bo partizanhoi yugoslavi, zakhmi shudavu khun rekhta, jubron kardaast, bo anjomi jang az taftishi komissiyai bozgardondani asiron guzashtaastu badan az sidqi dil zahmat kashidaast va gayravu hokazo. Lekin hamaash behuda. Az kujo medonad Quttiboev, ki u na bad-in sifat, balki tamoman ba surati digar lozim ast. Va dar on surate, ki lozim ast, chun sarrishtai marakai tomi reshakankunii dushmanoni pinhonshuda khizmat mekunad. U ba sifati nakhusthalqae lozim ast, ki zanjiri tamome az pas dorad. Volotar az manfiati davlat chi ham buda metavonad? Bazeho gumon dorand, ki hayoti odami. Sodaho! Davlat bukhoriest, ki hezumash odamonand Va yak lahza be chunin hezum bimonad, khomushu sard meshavadu digar ba kor nameoyad. Vale, az jonibi digar, hamon odamon niz be davlat vujud doshta nametavonand. YAne  odamon khud marosimi sukhtani kheshro barguzor mekunand. Alovmonho boshand, boyad payvasta hezum bipartoyand. Ana, ba hamin ravish barjost in dastgoh.

 Zimni baze chizhoi yak vaqtho dar maktabi hizbi oid ba talimoti klassiki shunidaash falsafaroni kardavu dar bari zanash, ki fikrhoyashro baosoni mekhond, nishasta va suhbati hamnishinhoro shunidavu ob doda, Tansiqboev peshi asrori ofarinishi odam lol meshud. Ana, masalan u, dar marakai mehmononi aziz nishastavu vonamud mekunad, ki bo hama vujud bandi mohiyati in lahzahost, vale dar asl khayolhoi bilkul digar dorad. Ki tasavvur karda metavonad, ki u chi niyat doradu dar dilash chi naqshahoe tarhrezi meshavand?! Darki on ki andar ui oromakak sari miz nishasta kim-chizi kharobkoru noguziri vobastai yak irodai vay nihon astu niyathoyash, ki qudrati nihonashon, barobari amali shudan, odamonro nazdi u va, tavassuti u, peshi khudi Hudo-Hokimiyat ba zonu zadan majbur mekunad, va , bino bar in, u yake az zinahoi afzunu bo vujudi in, angushtshumori poyai mudhishi Hudo-Hokimiyat ast, vujudashro chun hini didani taomi laziz va yo intizorii karakhtonai jimo, rohatu beqarorie mebakhshid. Va, barobari nushidani har yak qadahi navbati, in ragbat meafzudu dar shakli bemadorie vujudashro faro megirift va u, ba yak zure ba khud talqin karda, ki ijroi naqshaashro az pagoh der namemonad va holo vaqti kofi dorad, khudro nigoh medosht.

Juziyoti parvandai oyandaro khayolan tahuru karda, Tansiqboev az matonati maqsadu mantiqi niyati khesh ehsosi qanoatmandi namud. Bo vujudi in, his mekard, ki hanuz chize namerasad, lozim bud, ki boz chizi nave daryobad, guyo dalelhoe hanuz korbast nashudavu chunon ki meboyad, mavridi darki amiq  qaror nagirifta budand.

Masalan, ishorahoi Quttiboev az vazi mankurt nihoni chize dorad, okhir. Mankurt! Mankurti fireftae, ki modari khudro kushtaast! Albatta, rivoyati qadima ast on, vale Quttiboev, ki onro sabt kardaast, zimnan chizero dar nazar doshtagist?! Behudavu tasodufi bo chunin jiddu jahd va mufassal rui kogaz naovardaast on rivoyatro. Mankurt, mankurt… CHi nuktae nihon ast in jo, agar ramzest, chi mani dorad? Va, muhimtar az hama, Quttiboev qissai mankurtro dar faoliyati vayronkoriash chi khel, dar kadom shakl, ba chi tarz istifoda burdani bud? Hira-khira kim-chizi az nazari ideologi shubhanokero dar rivoyati mankurt pay burda boshad ham, Tansiqboev hanuz onro qati izhor karda nametavonist, holo purra bovar nadosht, ki mahbusro muttaham namudanash muyassar meshavad. Hayr, qissaro, chunon ki dar in mavridho roij ast, ziddikhalqi biguyadu mahz baroi hamin ba javobgariash bikashad-chi? Dar in jihat Tansiqboevro salohiyat kamtar bud, inro khudash khub mefahmid. Ba yagon olim murojiat kardan darkor. Ifshoi millatchiyoni  burjuazi, ki imruz qaydash karda istodaand, hamin khel surat girift-ku – avval guruhero daryoftand, ki dar millatchigiyu bar zarari davroni stalini tavsif namudani guzashta aybdorash kunand va hamin kofi bud, ki osiyob ruzu shab gardon boshad. Ne, yagon sir hast, ki Quttiboev on qadar bo jiddu jahd qissai mankurtro rui kogaz ovardaast. Boz yak bor bodiqqat har yak kalimaro boyad khond va agar yagon asosake paydo bishavad, tahiyai qissaro ham istifoda karda, ba parvanda afzudan va chun gunoh ba kor burdan lozim.

Gayr az in, az bayni kogazhoi Quttiboev matni boz yak qissa bo nomi «Qatl dar Saroy», ki az zamonhoi CHingizkhon rivoyat mekunad, paydo shud. Tansiqboev, ki dar ibtido ba on qissai doqiyonusi ahamiyat nadoda bud, tanho aknun ba khayol raft. Okhir, dar on ham, agar nagzakak biandeshi, kinoyai siyosie metavon daryoft.

Hangomi yurishash ba Garb, ruzhoi qushuni beshumorashro dar pahnoi bekaroni Osiyo az pai khud hidoyat namudan, CHingizkhon dar dashti Saroy marosimi qatle barpo karda, yak yuzboshi va javonzani zarduzero, ki bar parchamhoi  abreshimii nusratash ajdahorhoi otashnafas medukht, ba dor kashid.

On vaqt qismi ziyodi Osiyo allakay zeri dasti CHingizkhon qaror doshtu ba ulusho judo va miyoni pisaronu naberagonu lashkarkashonash taqsim shuda bud. Aknun boyad taqdiri kishvarhoi on sohili Itil[*]*, taqdiri Avrupo hal meshud.

Dar dashti Saroy on dam tiramoh hukm merond. Badi boronhoi paiham kulu daryohoi tobiston khushkida serob shudand va aknun asponro dar roh shodob kardan mumkin bud. Izdihomi dasht meshitobid, chunki fathi dashti Saroy qismati dushvortarini yurish hisob meyoft.

Se tumani dahhazornafara, parchamhoyashonro afroshta, pesh-pesh meraftand. Qudrati onhoro az rui harakatashon – pardai changu gubore, ki az sumi asponashon mekhestu chun dudi sukhtori azime to durihoi dur ufuqro mepushid, qazovat kardan mumkin bud. Du tumani digar, hamrohi galai asponi ehtiyoti, korvon va podai govoni qisir – baroi kushtani harruza – az aqib meomadand; ba pas nigarista, ba in bovar hosil kardan mumkin bud – changi on jo ham ba osmon mekhest. Digar quvvahoi jangi ham budand, ki bino bar durii behadashon ba chashm namerasidand. To mavqei onho – tumanhoi qanothoi rostu chap, ki har yake setumani doshtand, aspsavor yakchand ruz raftan lozim meomad. On qushunho mustaqilona sui Itil harakat mekardand. To ogozi khunukiho dar sohili Itil, dar qarorgohi khon vokhurii sarlashkaroni hamai yozdah tuman peshbini shuda bud, to ki amaliyoti minbada maslihat bishavadu qushunho, Itili yakhbastaro ubur karda, sui mulkhoi sarvatmandu zeboe, ki fathashonro CHingizkhon, sarlashkaronash va har yake az savoron orzu doshtand, roh bigirand…

 Ana, hamin tavr, ustuvor, lahzae takhir nakardavu fursatro az dast nadoda, kharakat mekardand qushunho dar on yurish. Va, badii kor dar hamin bud, ki zanon ham dosht korvoni onho.

Hudi CHingizkhon, bo nim hazor posbonon – kezegulhovu nadimon – jasavulhoyash, ki dar yurish hamrohiash mekardand, chun jazirai shinovar dar bayni qushunho harakat menamud. Lekin ba tarzi khos – pesh-peshi onho meraft u. Fotehi CHahor Sui Olam odami ziyodro khush nadosht, makhsusan, hangomi yurish, ki beshtar sukut kardanu ba pesh nigaristan va andeshai kor namudan lozim ast.

U savori samandi dustdoshtaash – Hubai ahlu beozor, sarisinadamida, yolsafedu dumsiyoh va narmraftor, ki zeri zini khon qarib nimi dunyoro tay karda bud, roh mepaymud. Du aspi ehtiyotii niz behad tobovaru davandi digarash bo rikobi durakhshonafzori khon, ki aspparvaroni savora meburdand, sabuk ravon budand. Hon asponashro saribod, hamin ki yake kame araq kard, ivaz menamud.

Vale jolibtarin chiz na atrofiyoni CHingizkhon – kezegulu jasavulhoi jasur budand, ki hayotashon besh az khudashon ba khon taalluq  dosht va, bino bar in, chun dami shamsher bisyor sakhtgirona muntakhab meshudand va na samandhoi olijanobi chun zari kholis kamyobashon. Ore, chizi jolibi on yurish tamoman digar bud. Tamomi roh, CHingizkhonro az oftob panah karda, boloi sarash abre shino menamud. Kujoe, ki meraft, abr az payash ravon bud. Abraki safed, ki hajmi khaymai kalonero dosht, chun mavjude az pushti u meraft. Va ba khotiri kase namerasid, ki – abr kam ast dar osmon, okhir, – on fol ast. Aflok ba Fotehi Olamho fotiha dodaast. Vale khudi CHingizkhon, ki inro medonist, batadrij abrakro nazora karda, beshtar bovar hosil menamud, ki on, dar haqiqat, alomati Osmon-Tengri, ramzi qazost.

Paydoishi abrro gaybdoni darveshe, ki CHingizkhon bore imkoni nazdik shudanash dod, peshgui karda bud. On musofir ba zonu naaftod, khushomad naguft, peshbinihoi tamalluqkorona nakard. Ui kharobu jandapush, ki bo muhoi betartibi ba kitfon khamidaash zani mupareshonro memond, ru ba rui afti mudhishi fotehi sahroi, ki dar yurtai zarrin rui takht menishast, sarbaland meistod. Darvesh jiddinigoh, barishufash, gandumguni kharobru bud.

– Man omadaam ba tu biguyam, ki, khoqoni kabir, – tavassuti uyguri tilmoch guft u, – bo khosti Aflok baroyat az bolo ramzi khosae irsol khohad shud.

      CHingizkhon az in izhori nogahoni lahzae lol mond. In darvesh, yo az aql begona ast, yo namefahmad, ki anjomi in korash chi meshavad.

– CHi khel ramz? Tu inro az kujo medoni? – bazur khashmashro furu burdavu peshoniashro chin karda, muvojeh shud zuri zuron.

Dar yurtai zarin khomushii garone hukmfarmo shud. Dar on lahza az CHingizkhon hama chizro intizor shudan mumkin bud, vale banogah, khashmi nigohash, hamchun otashi nimsuzi gulkhan, khomush gardid. Mayli bemisli jazodihiashro furu nishonda, fahmid, ki sukhanoni folbini dayduro gustokhii badqasdona giriftanu jazoyash dodan lozim nest; bo in shani khonii kheshro past mekunadu bas. Bino bar in, labkhandi makkoronaashro miyoni muylabhoi tunuki zardash nihon doshta, guft:

– Farz kardem, Aflok in sukhanonro ba dili tu andokht, ki ba mo bigui. Farz kardem, ki man bovar kardam. Lekin, bigu, ey musofiri khiradmand, ki man on abri ozodi osmonro chi guna ehtiyot karda metavonam? SHoyad galabonhoi savori asphoi boldorro bifiristam, ki nigohubinash bikunand? YO chun aspi sur, ba har ehtimol, lajomash bizanand?! Abri osmoniero, ki bod sad suyash mebarad, man chi khel ehtiyot karda metavonam?

– Inash – kori tu, – kutoh posukh dod musofir.

    Boz hama karakht shudand, az nav khomushii amiq hukmron gardid, laboni tilmoch bori digar safed shud va yak kas ham az ahli yurtai zarin jurat nakard sui gaybdoni badbakht, ki az ablahi yo ba khotiri kim-chi khudro mahkumi margi yaqin karda bud, bingarad.

– Inomash kunedu biguseloned, – zeri lab guft CHingizkhon va sukhanonash ba dilho, chun qatrahoi boron ba mazrai khushkida,  jon bakhshidand.

On hodisai ajibu garib bazudi az yodho raft. Dunyo puri sodalavhu ablahon ast, okhir. YOftaast gaybdonashro! Vale, on musofir tanho az sabuksari bo sarash bozi kard guftan ham, az rui adolat nabud. Okhir, nafahmida nametavonist, ki ba chi roh po mondaast. Hamon zamon, baroi gustokhivu beehtiromi, parpechon karda, ba dumi aspi vahshie bastanu sharmandavor kushtanash peshi kazegulhoi khon dushvorie nadosht. Bo vujudi in, chize on musofiri navmedro takon dodu talqin kard, ki hamchunone peshi sheri biyobon, ruyorui hokimi berahmu khashmitarin biistadu be tarsu larz gapashro biguyad. Raftori devonaavzoe bud on yo voqean payki Aflok?

Va tanho hangome ki dar tashvishhoi ayyomi guzaron hamaash faromush shud, badi du soli raso banogoh gaybdoni badbakht boz ba yodi CHingizkhon omad.

Raso du soli saltanat sarfi omodagii yurishi Garb shud. Badtar CHingizkhon bovar hosil kard, ki in du sol purfayztarin davrai jamovarii quvvayu vositaho bud baroi taskhiri dunyo, rasidan ba maqsadi diljuyash, ba dast ovardani sarzaminu kishvarhoe, ki bo fathashon metavonist khudro Hokimi voqeii CHahor Sui Olam, durtarin hududhoi dunyo bihisobad; durtarin hududhoi dunyo, ki rasidani sumi aspsavoroni shikastnopazirash imkon dosht. Mohiyati mudhishi on hokimi sahroi, vazifai tarikhii u majmuan dar hamin goyai devonavorona, hamin hirsi serinopaziri doroivu iqtidori mutlaq ifoda meyoft. Az in ru, hayotu mamoti saltanati u – hamai ulushoi tobeash dar pahnoi bepoyoni Osiyo, kulli aholii gunogunnajode, ki zeri dasti betarahhumash ba taqdir tan doda budand, jumlai dorovu qashshoqi shahru bodiyanishin va, nihoyati kor, har yak shakhs, kasevu chikorae naboshad, batamom tobei hamin hirsi shaytonii umrbod noser – istilohoi nav ba navu fathhoi toza ba tozai sarzaminu khalqho bud. Hamin bud, ki hama sarosar bandi khidmati mushtarak budand, hama ba niyati yagona – jam ovardanu afzudanu takmili iqtidori harbii CHingizkhon itoat mekardand. Va hama chize, ki az konho ba dast ovardanu sarfi silohsozi namudanash muyassar meshud, tamomi  amali bunyodkoronai mardum ba komi istilovu jahishi muqtadiri CHingizkhon ba Avrupo, jonibi shahrhoi benihoyat doroyash, ki har yak sarbozro ganimati dilkhohe intizor ast, sui jangalu charogohhoi to sinai aspon alafzorash, ki qimiz daryoson meshorad, furu meraft; shariki saltanati dunyo khohad bud har nafare, ki zeri shulai parafshoni ajdahori parchamhoi CHingizkhon yurish mekunad va az fayzi piruzi, chun az zane, ki ogushash volotarin lazzati olam ast, bahra khohad burd. Ba nabardu piruzivu fathi sarzaminho amr medod khoqoni buzurg va farmonash amali meshud…

CHingizkhon bo tamomi vujud mardi amal bud, ki har yak chizro qablan ba hisob giriftavu peshbini mekard. Hangomi tayyori ba istiloi Avrupo jihathoi maydatarinro ham omukhtu ba nazar girift. Tavassuti josusoni sodiq, khoinon, tojironu hojiyon, darveshoni musofir va kordonhoi chinivu uyguru arabu fors hamai chizhoero, ki baroi harakati izdihomi buzurgi harbi zarur bud – rohu guzargohhoi muvofiqtarro fahmid. U rasmu rusum, dinu shugli sokinoni joyhoero, ki qushunash meshitoft, ba nazar girifta bud. CHun navishta nametavonist, lozim meomad, ki on hamaro, bo nazardoshti foidavu zarari havodisi yurish, dar khotir nigah dorad. Tanho ba hamin tariq tartibi kor, va az hama muhim, intizomi qativu sanginro jori kardan mumkin bud, mahz hamin khel ba komyobi umed bastan imkon dosht. Va yagon zarra narmdiliro ba vujudi khesh roh namedod CHingizkhon: kasevu chize naboyad ba maqsadi asosii u – fathi Avrupo khalal birasonad.

Gap dar on bud, ki zanu kudakoni savorasarbozhoyash odatan bo korvon az pasi qushun meraftandu hamrohi on az joe ba joe kuch mebastand. In anana der boz davom doshtu az zarurati hayot barmeomad, zero dar zadukhurdhoi beokhiri qabilavi dushmanon payvasta qasosgiri mekardandu ahli ayoli hamdigarro, ki be pushtibon monda budand, nobud menamudand.

Pas hukmi taqdir chunin budaast.

Dogulang rui navzod kham shud:

Va Erdene-yuzboshi guft:

Hudat medoni – baroi hamin ham jurat nakarda budem. Kase ham az ahli qushun chunin jurat namekunad.

Noyon, zabon khoida-zabon khoida, javob dod, ki parchamduz Dogulang dar joi khilvate, dar yurtai alohida mezist, bo bahonai serkori bo kase aloqa nadosht, arobaash ham judo budu kanizake yormandiash mekard, chun bo kore peshash meraftand, zanakro dar garami mato, aksaran abreshimi parchambob, pechida darmeyof-tand.

Va aknun, hamrohi khudi Tansiqboevu dastai purzuri posbonon, uro meburdand dar on hujrai bandiyon. Ba digar shahrho, baroi rubarukuni meburdand.

Pai daryofti maqsadi khesh ustuvor kase budaast Tansiqboev – pursuposho rahbarah ham davom doshtand. Vazifai Tansiqboev az on iborat bud, ki batadrij shabakai vayronkori az ashkhosi dar holathoi shubhanok az asorati nemisho gurekhtavu dar YUgoslaviya natanho bo revizionisthoi oyandai on kishvar, balki bo razvedkai Angliya aloqabarqaror-karda sokhtai khadamoti makhsusi dushmanonro oshkor namoyad.

Onho hama allakay habs shuda budand va, dar navbati khud, hangomi  pursish boz nomhoi bisyorero ba zabon ovarda, ruykhati khoinoni yugoslaviro purra kardand. Hullas, kor jon megiriftu bo rozigii sardoroni bolo, ki niz ifshoi unsurhoi dushmanro hamesha mufid medonistand, ba marhalai batamom jiddii khesh vorid meshud. Zimni ziddiyati hardamafzoi baynalmilali bo hizbi kommunisti YUgoslaviya va Titoro raddi marakai ideologi khondani khudi Stalin baror kardani on behad mufid mebud va natanho ba ogozgarash – Tansiqboev, balki ba bisyor hampeshyoahoyash niz, dar digar shahrho, ki bo hamon sababi istifoda az fursati muvofiq “bolo” raftan mekhostand, “hosili farovon” vada mekard. Sarchashmai muvofiqati amal hamin bud. Ba har hol, dar CHkalovsk (Orenburgi sobiq), Kuybishev, Saratov barin markazhoi viloyatho, ki Abutolib Quttiboevro baroi rubarukuni va pursishhoi mushtarak meburdand, Tansiqboevro besabrona intizori mekashidand.

Az nazarash pinhon namond, ki berun shudan az mahbas ba bandi chi tasire rasond; medid, ki bandiash az pasi panjara bo chi dardu hasrat ba dehkadahoi pushti tirezai ravonkhona guzaron menigarad. Tansiqboev tugyoni botini Quttiboevro mefahmidu  mekushid bo ohangi ba haddi imkon bovaribakhsh talqinash kunad, ki ui mufattish ba vay zarrae badi namekhohad, zero takhmin mekunad, ki gunohash nachandon kalon ast, rezident – rahbari shabakai josusie, ki khadamoti makhsus baroi fursati muvofiqtar nigoh doshtaand, niz, albatta u, Abutolib Quttiboev, nest va, agar vay ba taftishot dar oshkor kardani rezident yori rasonad va, muhimash, inro hangomi rubarukuni oshkoru qati isbot kunad, gunohash khele sabuk meshavad. Hele. Mebini, ki panj-haft sol pas ba khona, peshi farzandonash bargashtaast. Ba har hol, agar ba kori taftishot kumak kunad, az jazoi oli – parrondan khalos meshavad, vagarna, har qadar ziyodtar pofishori namoyadu korro vayron kunad va haqiqatro az idorahoi mujozot pinhon dorad, ahvoli khudashro batar mekunadu ba ahli oilaash badbakhtii beshtar meorad. On goh, ajab nest, sudi makhfi ba parrondan ham hukmash kunad…

Boz yak burdi Tansiqboev dar on bud, ki bandiro talqin menamud: agar hamkori kunad, rivoyathoi kitobatkardaash, bilkhosa, “Qissai mankurt” va “Qatl dar Saroy” ba parvandai jinoi hamroh karda nameshavand va baraks, agar in korro nakunad, Tansiqboev matnhoro chun targibi pardapushi millatgaroi peshkashi sud mesozad. “Qissai mankurt” davati zararnoki ehyoi zaboni nodarkoru faromushshudai guzashtagon va muqobilat ba omezishi millathost, “Qatl dar Saroy” boshad, mahkum kardani hokimiyati purzuri oli, shikastani goyai bartariyati manfiathoi davlat az manfiati shakhsi, tavajjuh ba khudparastii pusidai burjuazi, nomaqul donistani kollektivikunoni, yane, mutei maqsadi yagona budani hamagon ast va az in hama to manidodi manfii sosializm chandon dur nest. Va, chunon ki malum ast, har yak vayron kardani prinsipu manfiathoi sosialisti sakht jazo doda meshavad… Behuda dah sol namedihand ba ashkhose, ki be ijozat az sahroi jamiyat khushae chidaand. CHi joi kase, ki “khusha”-hoi ideologi mechinad! Mavod, ki in khel peshkash bishavad, sud metavonad, bino bar moddahoi ilovagi, hukmhoi izofa barorad. Baroi etimodi beshtar Tansiqboev yakchand bor khulosahoi vozehashro oid ba qissahoi Saroy qiroat kard, oid ba qissahoe, ki hamchunone u gashtavu bargashta takid menamud, nakhustsababi zindoni shudani Quttiboev va ogozi parvandai jinoi gardidanashon tasodufi nabud…

SHabonaruzi duyum bud, ki qatora roh mepaymud. Va har qadar ki ba dashti Saroy nazdiktar meshudand, Abutolib, az tirezai panjarador ba pahnoi hardamafzo nigarista, beshtar ba hayajon meomad. Soathoi forig az pursishho, badi talqinhoi dilfishoru tahdidhoi badkhashmona, vay imkon dosht dar zindonhujrai  ohankubash khud ba khud boshad.

Dar in qadar vaqt natavonist, ki ba onho nomayakevu khabarake bifiristad, az onho niz satrake narasidash.

Az on dame, ki Abutolibro dar moshini mahkami mahbas ba istansai Almaato ovardandu ba ravonkhonai makhsus, ba hujrai zeri nazorat shinondand, dilash sarshori hamin umedu intizoriho bud. Va hamin ki az rui harakatash ba samti Saroy raftani qatoraro fahmid, dilash purzurtar ba ohu nola daromad; Hudo meguft, ki aqallan bo gushai chashm, yak lahzahak farzandonashro bubinad, Zarifaro bubinad, bad – harchi bodo, bod, yak borakak, yak nazari guzaron bubinadshon, bas…

CHunon pazmon shuda bud, ki dar borai yagon chizi digar fikr karda nametavonist, payvasta Hudo meguft, ki uburi istgohi Buroni ba ruz rost biyoyad. Iloho, shab naboshad, torik naboshad, iloho, qatora az istgoh mahz hamon vaqte bigzarad, ki Zarifayu jigarbandonash ham dar chordevoriashon ne, dar berun boshand.

Lekin, agar biandeshi, tasodufro oyo zur meomad mahz chunin hukm kunad, ki bachahovu Zarifa on lahzaho rui havli boshand; bigzor, bachaho sargarmi boziashon boshandu Zarifa – mashguli libosoftobkuni va hamzamon  ba qatorai guzaron bingarad; bachaho niz, banogoh dar joyashon biistandu chashm az tirezai rushani qatora nakanand. Va yo, nogahon chize rukh dihad, ki khele kam, vale voqe meshud – qatora bepursupos chand lahzayake sari duroha qaror bigirad!

Va, baroi tasallii khesh, to qismatro  rozivu rahim bisozad, ki orzuhoyashro amali bigardonad, u, az rui nishonahoi rohi ohan va istgohhoe, ki duchor meomadand, beikhtiyor qarinahoi gunoguni harakati qatoraro hisobukitob mekard – muhim bud bidonad, ki Durohai Buroniro kadom vaqt meguzarand. Vale shubhavu iztirob hangome ham tarkash nakard, ki hisobukitobash nek baromad; okhir, qatora takhir karda metavonist, der monda metavonist – chunin holatho dar zimistonhoi serbarf kam voqe nameshudand.

Abutolib ba khulosai noguzir rasid, ki qurbonii komili dasti Tansiqboev ast u. Dar navbati khud, Tansiqboev yak murvatchai sokhti bemanii mujozotii muntazam qudratafzoe besh nabud. Va in sokht ziddi dushmanone, ki harakati jahonii sosializmro boz-doshtan mekhostandu tantanai kommunizmro dar rui zamin  mone shudani budand, beamon muboriza meburd.

Natija tanho va tanho jazoe – parrondan, bistupanj, ponzdah va yo dah sol mahbusi – buda metavonistu bas. Natijai digar peshbini nashuda bud.

Bino bar in, betanaffus bo kim-kiho muboriza kardanu kim-kihoro fosh namudanu  kim-kihoro az bayn burdan talab karda meshud…

Qatora hamono meraftu meraft. Abutolib, ki taqdirashro zarrae tagyir doda nametavonist, noiloj ba qismati peshoni, chun ba baloi rafnopazire, tan dod. Aknun asli voqearo chandon muteonayu navmedona mepaziruft, ki qablan baalamu noilojona muqobilatash mekard. U toraft beshtar imon meovard, ki az nav ba dunyo biyoyad ham, az barkhurd bo qudrati bechehrayu noodamonae, ki Tansiqboev timsolash ast, gurekhtan muyassarash nameshavad. In qudrat az jangu az asorat ham dahshatnoktar budaast, zero falokatest bemuhlat va shoyad az zamoni ofarinishi dunyo bardavom. Ehtimol Abutolib Quttiboev – yak omuzgori oddii maktab – nafare az on abnoi bashar ast, ki jarimai aziyati bekorii bardavomi shaytonro mekashand; jarimai zamonero, ki hanuz inson dar pahnoi Koinot paydo nashuda bud va badan paydo shudu yagona miyoni hama mavjudoti rui zamin hamono sitoraash bo sitorai shayton muvofiq omad va ruz ba ruzu asr ba asr tantanai sharro roij kardan girift.

Vale mahz chunin yak odame, ki uzvi yagon hizbi dunyo nest va savgandho nakhurdavu tavbaho nakardaast, darkor bud ba onho dar zindon, to khalqi zahmatkash khushbakhtona biziyad…

Vay, dari hujraro nimvo karda, allakay yakchand bor ogohi doda bud:

Vale Abutolib, ki qudrati khudro orom namudan nadosht, nozirro zori mekard:

Va, harchand ki osmon jo-jo mekushod, malum bud, ki havo tira meshavadu shoyad barf ham buborad…

Aknun aniq dashti Saroy, ki az barfu barftudaho pur boshad ham, az rui tarhi khesh – teppavu khamgashtu qariyavu nakhustin dudi az safarhoi peshin shinosi bomhoyash nigohi daqiqro oshno bud, sar meshud.

Du marotiba hatto paytova pechondu muza pushid, borkhaltaashro ba tartib ovard va muntazir shud. Lekin toqat karda natavonist – posbononro ba jonu holashon namond, ki ijozatash bidihand barvaqttar dasturu bishuyad va, az nav ba hujra bargashta, boz ham namedonist khudro ba chi mashgul bidorad.

Qatora hamono dar dashti Saroy ravon bud… Abutolib, ba qismat tan doda, dastonashro bayni zonuvon fishurda menishastu goh-gohe ba tireza menigarist.

Dar istgohi Qumbel qatora haft daqiqa istod. In jo allakay hama chiz khudi bud. Hatto qatoraho, qatorahoi borkashu musofirbar, ki qabl az har sue raftan dar rohi in istgohi kalon ba qatorai onho duchor meomadand, Abutolibro azizu dilju menamudand – okhir, onho, chand lahzayake pesh, az istgohi  Buroni guzashtaand, az  istgohe, ki bachahovu hamsari u zindagi dorand. Va yak hamin kofi bud, ki on jismhoi bejon qarini dilash boshand.

Va, ana, qatorai onho boz ba roh daromad va to on ki qad-qadi perron meraftu az hududi istgoh nabaromada bud, Abutolib tavonist chehrahoi shinostobi sokinoni mahalliro bubinad.

Ba khurdanie, ki sahar dodandash, dast nazad Abutolib. Hamvora dar fikri on bud, ki to durohai Buroni tamoman kam, beshtarak az du soat vaqt mondaast va az on meharosid, ki mabodo barf biboradu buron bishavad, on goh Zarifayu bachaho az khona namebaroyandu vay hatto az dur ham didaashon nametavonad…

«Hudoyo, – az dil meguzarond  Abutolib, – barfatro nigoh bidor. Sabr kun kame. Vaqti barfbori meyobi bad. Meshunavi, khudoyo?

Abutolib mayusona sar ba zer afkand. Panjaraash nameshud, be yagon fikru khayol bod barin az tireza berun meparid… Lekin chi iloj – majbur ast itoat kunad. Nasib nabudaast. Aknun, az dilu jon ba tireza chaspida, on chizero, ki in qadar intizoriash mekashid, namebinad.

Oqibat ba Tansiqboev guft:

Tansiqboev mutahayyirona sar bardosht:

Albatta, tu, Quttiboev, dar in dastgohi josusi on qadar odami muhim nesti, bino bar in, agar ba taftishot yori birasoni, gunohat sabuk meshavad.

– CHi khel dastgohi josusi? Guftam-ku, badi soli chilupanj, az tamom shudani jang in jonib nadidaam onhoro, – sukhani Tansiqboevro burid Abutolib.

– In muhim nest. Tamoman muhim nest. SHart ne shakhsan, rubaru didan. Kase miyonarav buda metavonad. Farz kardem, hamon Edigey Jongeldini haqiqatparast hargiz ba Orenburg yo yagon shahri digar narafta bud? SHumo ba vositai yagon kasi digar ham metavonisted aloqa kuned. YAk fikr kun avval.

– Edigey ba Orenburg savori shuturash Qaranor raft biguyam, meshavad? – khudro doshta natavonist Abutolib.

Qatorakash ba qatorae, ki az on su meomad, durudarozu sakht nido kard. Figoni gushkharoshash dili Abutolibro resh-resh namud. To durohai Buroni toraft kamtar vaqt memond.

Lekin holo uro besh az hama on chiz diltang mekard, ki Tansiqboevro nogoh khushi gapzani omada budu pursishro hej khotima dodan namekhost.

Rubarukunii Orenburg chizi asosiro malum khohad kard – yo tu ba man yori doda, ba guftaam kor mekuni, yo man hama korro mekunam, ki bistupanj sol yo shoyad hukmi parron bigiri, on vaqt pushaymoni sudat namekunad. Hamaashro khudat nagz mefahmi. Holo navbati khudi Tito ham merasad, Titoe, ki shumo in qadar solho dar khizmatash buded. In kor zeri nazorati khudi Iosif Vissarionovich ast. YAgon kas bejazo namemonad. Hamaro berahmona reshakan mekunem. Hullas, azizam, shukr kun, ki man badi namekhohamat. Tu ham naboyad qarzdor bimoni. Maqsad fahmo?

Abutolib khomush bud. Vay, saropo ba dahshat aftoda, dar dilash daqiqahoi ba nimistgoh rasidanro jamutarh mekard. Jigarbandonro aqallan az tireza didan nasib nabudaast – in fikr maynaashro parmason afgor mekardu afgor mekard.

Az hamon lahza Abutolib guyo zindagii nave ogoz namud. Ba nazarash chunin merasid, ki qatora gashtashro teztar kardaast.

Ba hamin tarz, motu mabhut nazdi tireza meistodu hayron bud, ki harchand bedodgariro sar nafurovard, majbur bud ba kadom yak quvvae itoat kunadu besadovu duzdona az nazdi zanu farzandonash chun hayvoni bezabon guzashta biravad, zero ba in hamon quvva, ki az ozodi mahrumash namuda bud, majburash mekard va u, ba joi on ki az qatora biparadu az khud darak bidihad va ruirost sui oilai pazmonash bishtobad, haqiru bechora ba tireza menigaristu Tansiqboevro imkon medod bo u chun bo sage, ki amrash kardaand dar kunjake bishinadu harakat nakunad, munosibat namoyad. Va Abutolib, baroi tasalloi dilash, ahde kard, ki khudash medonistu Hudo…

Tamomi roh barf meboridu buron menolid. Dar yake az istgohhoi peshi Orenburg qatora yak soati daroz istod – barftudahoi rohro toza mekardand. Ovozho ba gush merasid – odamon, bodu havo va hama chizi dunyoro nafrin namuda, mashguli kor budand. Bad qatora, dar pardai girdbodi buroni, boz ba roh daromad. To daruni Orenburg durudaroz rah paymudand, shokhahoi chun hezumi  guristoni besohib siyohu kajukilebi darakhtoni sari roh lolu tira ovezon bud. Hudi shahr qarib ki ba chashm namerasid.

Abutolib inro az rui takonkhurii ravonkhonahovu sadohoi khodimoni ravonkhonai makhsus va faryodi qatorakashho fahmid. Bad ravonkhonaro boz ba kujoe, az afti kor, ba rohi ehtiyoti kashida burdand.

Oqibat nimi shab ravonkhonai makhsus dar joi muqarrarshuda qaror girift. Okhirin bor takon khurd ravonkhonavu okhirin bor amre az poin sado dod, ki «SHud! Narased digar!» va on digar az jo najunbid.

Abutolib ohista az jo khest va, ba nozir tamoman nazdik shuda, navmedona guft:

Kujo? Baroi chi borkhaltaatro namegiri? YO baroyat boz hammol biyorem? Kani, zud latu putatro bardor!

Abutolib, ba hujra bargashta, bo dili nokhoham borkhaltai faromushkardaashro girift va hangomi bargashtan ba dolon qarib bud ba du khodimi makhsusi haminjoi, ki bo shitobu iztirob meraftand, barkhurad.

Az ravonkhona baromada, Abutolib sadoi dari hujrai Tansiqboevro kuftani onhoro shunid.

Abutolib, pesh-peshi nozir, khomushona bo zinaho az qatora furomad. SHamoli sard mevazidu barfi reza meborid. Az sardii zavlonahoi yakhbasta dastonash yakbora rag kashidand.

Abutolib, borkhaltaash sari kitf, batakhmin ru-rui takhtavu ohanhoi roh qadam monda, pesh-peshi posbonon ba roh daromad. Az barf khudro panohida meraftand. Goh az in suvu goh az on su qatorakashhoi shabkor sado medodand.

YAke az buzurgtarin navisandahoi muosiri dunyo –  CHingiz Aytmatov der boz miyoni khonandagoni khushzavqi tojik ham mahbubiyati sazovor paydo kardaast. Az qissahoi zeboi davrai avvali ejodiyotash, ki aksaran zindagii purtazzodi yak inson va tavassuti on ruzgori  buzurgvoronayu fojiavii insoniyatro bozgu kardaand, to romanhoi ba har mani buzurgu farogirash, ki Insonu Kayhonro bo on hashamatu bekaroni ba tasvir giriftayu zimnan shodiyu nishot va dardu alamhoi har yak odami khokiro khele muassir inikos namudaand, in qalamkashi zabardast dar madori muhabbati kitobkhonhoi dunyo qaror dorad.

CHunon ki khonandai muhtaram medonad, taqriban bist sol pesh romani nakhustin, vale hamono ustodonai CHingiz Aytmatov – «Ruze hast daroztar az qarn» yo khud «Durohai buroni» manzuri hamagon gardid. Tavassuti qalamdodi ruzgori ashkhosi oddii zahmatkash, az yak jonib va tasvirhoi khayolii kayhoni, ki baroyash odati nabudand, az jonibi digar, adibi qudratmand masoili mubrami zamonro pesh nihoda, chun hamesha jomearo ba andeshai amiq peromuni olamu odam vodoshta bud. Hamon vaqt on asari zebovu khonoro mutolia kardavu ba qudrati sukhan maftun shuda va az jasorati adabivu insonii muallif ba hayrat aftoda, shoyad kam kasone andeshida budand, ki in kitobi jolib niz az zarrabini mafkuravi guzashtavu tahriroti ijboriero duchor omada va, besh az in, az porahoi dilrasi khesh mahrum shudaast.

Mutaassifona, hamin khel shuda bud va, khushbakhtona, zamone rasid, ki hamon porai soqiti roman chun qissai judogona manzuri khonandagon gardid. Dar markazi in porai roman yo khud qissai alohidai CHingiz Aytmatov niz, chun dar osori digarash, Insoni oddii zahmatkash qaror dorad; Insone, ki bori dunyoro ba dush bardoshtavu bo vujudi in qudratu buzurgi juz osoishi khonadoni kheshu digaron, muhabbati jonibayni odamon, yane khushbakhtii oddiyu dushvorhosili zamini, ormone nadorad.

Dar qissa obrazhoi marufi romani «Ruze hast daroztar az qarn» – Abutolib Quttiboev va mayori khadamoti amniyati davlat Tansiqboev amal mekunand va tabiist, ki zimnan jihathoi navi kharakterhoyashon tasvir meshavad. Hamzamon bo qudrati benaziru gayriinsonii moshini mujozoti, ki dar shakhsi «odami davlat» Tansiqboev nishon doda shudaast va bechoragiyu behuquqii Inson, ki zimni obrazi Abutolib manzur meshavad, khati digari sujet meguzarad. In khati toza az masiri tarikhi insoniyat ubur karda, zamoni istiloi mugulro bo davroni sotsializmi piruz, saltanati khudkomonai CHingizkhonro bo diktaturai bedodgarbunyodkori Stalin payvastaast. Va chizi jolibtarine, ki zimnan mushohida meshavad, obrazi Inson ast, «insoni oddii zahmatkash» (tabiri CHingiz Aytmatov), ki bo vujudi tagyiroti chashmgiri ijtimoivu siyosivu farhangi az azal to imruz kam digarguniero muvojeh shudaast. Holo niz u hamon insonest, ki du, se, dah asr qabl bud, hamon guna aziyat mekashad, meandeshad, gam mekhuradu az nochiztarin bahonai tarab shodi mekunad. In fikri jolib zimni khati payvande, ki miyoni obrazhoi Abutolib Quttiboev va Erdene-yuzboshi ustuvor ast, bozgu shudaast. Abutolib, ki dar davroni digargunihoi buzurgi ijtimoivu tekhniki, zamoni payvandi qutbhovu qitaho, taskhiri  avji kayhonu qari zamin, bunyodi istgohhoi buzurgi barq, ikhtiroi doruyu darmoni bemislu silohhoi benaziri odamkush zindagi dorad, mubtaloi hamon dardi azaliest, ki Erdene-yuzboshi – sarbozi sohibdili CHingizkhonro dar domi khud medosht. Hardu niz – ham insoni asri sezdahu ham muosiri mo chizi bisyore namekhohand: dar zindagi ba holi khud zistan, kasero dust doshtanu dustdoshtai kase budan, farzand ba dunyo ovardanu sazovor parvaridan kofist baroi khushbakhtii komili onho. Lekin ruzgor – ham dar on va ham dar in zamon – bisyor berahm budu hast va lozim namedonad Insonro ba kamtarin tamannoi dilash ham komyob kunad.

Hardu niz – ham Erdene-yuzboshi va ham Abutolib  zohiran kore nakardaand, ki sazovori hayratu maftuni boshad. Vale mohiyatan hardu niz isyonkorand va meboyad qahramononi sozandai adabiyot mahsub bishavand.

Erdene-yuzboshi amaldori qushuni beshumori CHingizkhon ast, ki har hafta shahrevu har moh kishvarero zeri dast mekunad. U imkon dorad ba komi dili yak insoni khudkom biziyad. Vale Erdene-yuzboshi insoni qolabi nest, u boyad isyon bikunad, ba zohir ne, ba mohiyat isyon bikunadu qadru manzalati Insonro biafzoyad.

Abutolib – farzandi asri bist bo Erdene-yuzboshi az hamin jihat qarobat dorad. U vazifador ast odditarin arzishhoro qadr bikunadu sunnathoro zinda bidorad, dar mushkiltarin holatho, ki qismat ba sarash meorad, Insonro dar khesh boy nadihad. Abutolibro bo gunohhoi gushnoshunide mujrim medonand, bo jazohoi mudhishe metarsonand, vale u, besh az hama, az yak jazo, ki qismat mubtaloyash kardaast – judoi az zanu farzandon haros doradu bas. Hamin judoii jovid az payvandoni dilu jon, hamin talafoti mudhish nuqtai digarest, ki qismathoi Abutolibu Erdene-yuzboshiro ba ham mepayvandad. Talafote, ki hargiz va ba hej chiz jubron nameshavad va, binobar in, juz Ofaridgor kase haq nadorad Insonro ba on duchor bikunad.

Badbakhtii Inson ast, ki bo talqini SHayton az doirai vazoifi rahmonii khesh ubur mekunadu ba sari hamzotonash baloho meorad. Vay dar osori CHingiz Aytmatov mahz hamchun yak ofaridai komil-tarinu noqistarini Hudovand, ki payvastavu munta-zam ba takomul niyoz dorad va, badbakhtona, dar rohi qismati khesh khohu nokhoh va aksaran ba kohishhoi ruhoniyu manavi muvojeh meshavad, ba qalam omadaast. Az in jihat, makhsusan, obrazi CHingizkhon jolib ast. Vay, bo hama shukuhu shahomat, dar soyai lutfi qismat – dar ihotai qushuni bisyorhazora va khodimonu nadimoni sodiq (sadoqate, ki reshaash haros ast) dar avji saltanatu jahongiri tasvir shudaast. Vale nazari zarrabini adibi hunarmand, az javshani zarkubi u guzashta, dilu jonashro uryon mebinad va darmeyobad, ki u niz, bo vujudi on hama obodii zohir, doghoe dar dilu jon dorad. CHunin tasviri amiqu voqei khonandaro majbur mekunad ba obrazi marufi adabiyoti dunyo digargunatar nazar andozad. Fojiahoe, ki on abarqudratu jahontalabi khunkhoru mardumozor az sar guzarondaast, varo lahzae chun Inson – chun mavjudi muqtadiru bechorai muhtoji rahmu dilsuzi vonamud mesozad; vale fojiahoe, ki u khud ba sari insonho meorad, uro az madori kamtarin tavajjuh niz berun mekunad. In tavajjuhi oddii insoni ne, balki jozibai khosi kayhoni, besh az on, muhabbati rahmonist. CHunki Inson, tavassuti maqsadhoi poki khesh, payvandi Ofaridgor ast va niyati azalii uro amali mesozad. Niyati azalii Hudovand – obodii olamu ozodii odam, muhabbati payvandonu parvarishi farzandon, nek guftanu nek kardan, shukrguzorivu mehrshiori, khullas, nakukori, ki chun pahnoi Jahonu qudrati YAzdon poyon nadorad, tavassuti Insoni asil dar dunyo sobit meshavad. Va, mantiqan, har kase, ki bo kirdori shaytoni mavridi nafrati Inson qaror megirad, hamzamon nafrati YAzdonro sazovor megardad.

CHingizkhon, chun yak abarqudrat, az doirai vazoifi insonii khesh guzasht va farmudai Ofaridgor – idomai naslro hangomi yurishhoi khesh muroot nakard. Erdene-yuzboshivu Dogulang in farmoni shaytoniro rioyat nanamudand va giriftori jazoi berahmonata-rin gashtand: jahongiri khunkhor onhoro az zindagi va lazzati shirintarin mevai darakhti umr – farzand benasib sokht. Hudovand, chun mukofoti amal, CHingizkhonro az soyai marhamati khesh – abri safede, ki az ogozi yurishash jonibi Garb hamrohiash dosht, mahrum namud.

Tansiqboev, aloragmi voqeiyatu haqiqat, Abutolibro duchori tuhmatu mahrumiyatho karda, ba halokat rasond va az buzurgtarin orzu – didori zanu farzandon mahrum sokht. Va mohiyatan ba nafrati Hudovand duchor gardid.

Ramzist, ki in hodisa bahmanmohi soli 1953 rukh dod. Badi chande Stalin darguzasht va shikastani moshini mudhishi tarsu haros, tuhmatu buhton, shikanjavu jazo, ki dar bahoi jonu azobhoi alimi Inson tansiqboevhoro ba manzili murodashon merasond, ogoz girift…

Hamin ast farjomi har amale, ki alayhi niyati azalii Hudovand korbast meshavad.

Hamin ast khulosai qissai muassiru omuzandai CHingiz Aytmatov «Poraabri safedi CHingizkhon».

Dar qissa porae hast, ki darveshi gaybdone paydoishi abri safedro boloi sari CHingizkhon peshgui mekunad: «On nishonai Qazoi Aflok ast, ki volomaqomii mutlaqatro dar rui zamin shahodat medihad. Tu boyad on abrro ehtiyot kuni, vagarna, gumash, ki kardi, az qudrati benazirat memoni…» Hama tarkishi khashmi Hoqonro intizor meshavand, vale u gustokhii gaybdoni darveshro oromona tahammul mekunad: «Farz kardem, Aflok in sukhanonro ba dili tu andokht, ki ba mo bigui. Farz kardem, ki man bovar kardam. Lekin, bigu, ey musofiri khiradmand, ki man on abri ozodi osmonro chi guna ehtiyot karda metavonam? SHoyad galabonhoi savori asphoi boldorro bifiristam, ki nigohubinash bikunand? YO, chun aspi sur, ba har ehtimol, lajomash bizanand?! Abri osmoniero, ki bod sad suyash mebarad, man chi khel ehtiyot karda metavonam?» Darveshi gaybdon, bo hamon gustokhivu loqaydii buzurgvorona, posukh medihad: «Inash – kori tu…»

Ore, har kase ham, agar Inson ast, boyad poraabri marhamatero, ki Hudovand bar farozi har bandai pokash parafshon medorad, posbonu posdor boshad. CHi guna – kori har kas ast, vale yak chiz musallam ast, ki be niyati neku amali nek, ki vazifai azalivu abadii Inson ast, dar soyai poraabri marhamati Hudovand budan imkon nadorad.
