The question of packing the things for the journey arose. The author thought that he was an expert in packing. lie asked his friends, George and Harris to leave packing to him. When he had finished packing, certain things remained out. He opened the bag again. In the same way, he had to pack and unpack time and again. The packing was still not complete. Harris and George undertook to do the rest of the job. But they were also not expert in packing. They damaged a number of things and did the job shabbily. At last, the packing was complete by 12.50 in the night. They went to bed with the intention of waking up at 6.30 in the morning.
(यह कहानी Jerome K. Jerome के उपन्यास ‘Three Men in a Boat’ का एक अंश है । कहानी के कथावाचक और उसके दो मित्रों ने छुट्टी पर जाने का फैसला किया । यात्रा पर जाने के लिए सामान पैक करने का प्रश्न आया । लेखक सोचता था कि वह पैकिंग का विशेषज्ञ है । उसने अपने मित्रों जॉर्ज और हैरिस से कहा कि वे पैकिंग का काम उस पर छोड़ दें । जब वह पैकिंग कर चुका तो कुछ चीजें बाहर रह गई थीं । उसने फिर से बैग खोला । इसी प्रकार उसे कई बार सामान पैक करना और खोलना पड़ा । पैकिंग अभी भी पूरी नहीं हुई थी । हैरिस और जॉर्ज ने बाकी की पैकिंग करने का बीड़ा उठाया । मगर पैकिंग में वे भी कुशल नहीं थे । उन्होंने बहुत-सी चीज़े तोड़ दीं और काम भद्दे ढंग से किया । आखिर रात को 12.50 बजे पैकिंग पूरी हुई । वे अगली प्रात: 6-30 बजे उठने का इरादा करके सो गए ।)
“Packing” is an extract from Jerome K. Jerome’s novel Three Men in a Boat’. This is a humorous extract about the confusion and mess created by people who are inexperienced in the art of packing. It exposes the utter clumsiness of the three friends – Jerome, George, and Harris. They consider themselves to be skilled in the art of packing but, in reality, all of them have little knowledge about working in an organised manner.
Hence, to the great amusement of the reader, the small job of packing is carried out by them with many a jerk and jolt.
