लग्ना नंतरच्या पहील्याच प्रवासात फ्रँक आणि लिली या दोघांनी ठरवले की आपल्याला बारा मुलं असावीत . फ्रँक ला मूलं आवडायची आणि लिलीला झालेली मूलं आवडू लागली . " चिपर बाय द डझन "ही शंभर वर्षापूर्वी लिहीली गेलेली भन्नाट विनोदी सत्यघटनेवरची कादंबरी . याला आ्मकथन म्हणावे लागेल , कारण त्या बारा मूलांपैकी बहीणभाऊ या दोघांनी मिळून त्या कुटूंबाची मजेदार कहाणी लिहीलीय . फ्रँक जुनियर व अर्नेस्टाईन यांनी फक्त 140 पानांत कादंबरी संपविलीय . पुस्तक हातात घेतले व सुरु झाला स्वतःशीच हासरा संवाद . दररोज हसता यावे यासाठी थोडेथोडे करून आठ दिवसात कादंबरी संपवीली . शैक्षणिक , गतिविषयी , वेळाविषयी अश्या कांही भन्नाट कल्पना अमलात आणल्यात की बस्स् . फ्रँक स्वतः इंजीनीयर . अमेरीकेतील व जर्मनीतील मोठ मोठ्या कंपनींचा सल्लागार .कमीत कमी वेळात जास्तीत जास्त काम अचुकपणे कसे करावे यावरचे धडे देण्यासाठी फ्रँक ला बोलावले जायचे . आजच्या भाषेत "मॅनेजमेंट गुरु " . सर्व संकल्पना घरी अमलात आणल्या जायच्या यातूनच फक्त सतरा वर्षात बारा मुलांचे कुटूंब उभे राहीले . अनेक उपक्रमांचा जनक , स्वतःच्या शैक्षणिक कल्पना त्यावेळी थियेटर मध्ये दाखविल्या जायच्या .. लिलीही कांही कमी नव्हती . ती होती निष्णात भाषणतज्ञ . तिच्या भाषणांचे कार्यक्रम व्हायचे . एवढ्या प्रचंड कुटूंबात प्रत्येकजन शिस्तीत प्रगती करतोय ही खरेच कमालीची गोष्ट आहे . एक दोन मूलांना सांभाळताना होणारी कसरत आठवली की बारा मूलांचा सांभाळ ही भयावह कल्पना वाटतेच . कादंबरी वाचावीच कारण बेस्टसेलर आहे , त्याच कादंबरी वर छानसा सिनेमाही पाहाच. अनेक भाषात भाषांतरे झालीत. पानापानात छाटे छोटे विनोद व नवनवीन प्रयोग , हास्याचे फवारे , कुणीतरी पाहतय म्हणून चोरून हासण्याचा नवीन प्रकारही वाचताना घडतोच . ... दयानंद पोतदार ..... ...Read more

Hats off नादिया . ...Read more
