Words can't be brainteaser always

06, Oct 2017 By shakeel ahmad

KANPUR: A piece of mind teaser made the readers make an easy word by using the letter ‘e’. In order to make this very word starting with the alphabet ‘e’ and ending with the same letter ‘e’, one obviously required a certain level of brain power. One can find that genuine word envelope by placing the letter ‘e’ before and after the word. This seems to have cleared so easily. But one word which remained a puzzle for long became clear only after comparable word propped up in a news-item recently. When this word surfaced, a locality’s similar name in Ghazipur district of Uttar Pradesh revived into the mind.

It was now the general idea of the word ‘Langaah’ became amply clear. It denotes a city, a tribe or a divine person. Today everything is handy, so there is no difficulty in knowing whatever is sought. The meaning of the word is, in another way, near to a spiritual person who often relies on intuition for decision making. The Langaah also claims to be a tribe of Afghan origin who turned up to Multan from some far areas in Afghanistan. The tribal people commonly connect their name with the birthplace or the tribe as the Persians practised.

This locality still exists just in the small city’s heart. Neither the Town Hall nor the Ganges was too far from this locality. What was distantly located from this area was the reasonably famous opium factory there. Even the Montessori School was not distantly located.  Definitely, the buried interest did not lead to delve deep into finding the meaning. Langaah is also described as a city located in the Jhelum district of the Punjab in Pakistan. This name signifies the Jat people living in Rajasthan and Punjab respectively. Their history and long rule over Multan have been recorded in the history.
