Hang (in) (out) and (up)

With Valentine’s day round the corner, it is time to blog about “Hanging” out with your loved ones.


While I enjoyed saving the man in my favourite classical Vocab game “Hangman”, it was also a bumper season for “Better-off-Hung type” Human rights champions too, who took up the cause of  Hanging of moderate saintly gentlemen. They are so saintly who just were hanging out to have some fun watching the fireworks that brought down anything from Hanging Gardens of Babylonia to the  Dhabaleswar Hanging Bridge along with many terrorizing public on the road.

Funnier lot  were those Protestors who hung in there to make hay while sun shined. They decided to hang out on the streets of various cities on a lazy and free Weekend evening, until they realized that the clothes in their washing machine need to be hung & Went back home in search of their Hangers

Then there was this holy learned Journalist writer, who dreamt of a Role-Switch to become the first Hangman to Hang a President from the Clock-Tower (Ghanta Ghar) – which incidentally hung up the day Pandits were chased out of the valley.

While there this Journo-writer also thought that the President of a Sovereign Nation who simply did his job deserves some choicest compliments as an adjective.

Afzal Gooroo did try ringing this Journo-Writer bloke but it went dead! Later we get to know that he just hung up. And by god! 11 years was too long even for Afzal Gooroo who must have exclaimed “Hey! hurry up all this hanging around is killing me”  Which is when the Jail Superintendent ordered “OK, make it quick. I don’t want to be left hanging around” I am sure his final thoughts were “I suppose that’s the way things go, one door opens another one closes.”

Coming to this person with so much of Hang-ups who married into an Indian family, & hung a Mangalsutra around her neck and then started Hanging citizens of the nation everyday physically and intellectually – Does anyone know if that Ultra sensitive lady broke into tears and her Hanger-on errand boy (who famously said that “jab hum tasveerein dekhi to unke aansoon phoot padi…”) had to rush to the nearest hanger where the Handkerchief was hung when the news of hanging was delivered to her?

Not to be left behind Google also jumps on to the “Hang” out bandwagon. Though their responses in terms of professionalism leaves much to desire (a recent experience). I foresee Google+ hanging up the Orkut way. We have seen biggest Corporations break down and hang themselves by thin lines to stay afloat

Well time to Hang up on this post. But hang-on till you read this final parting one.

A blonde decided to commit suicide by hanging herself from a tree in the park.
A few days later, a man was walking his dog and spotted her hanging from the tree. He asks the blonde what she is doing and she replies, “I’m hanging myself.”
“You’re supposed to put the noose around your neck, not your waist,” said the onlooker. “I tried that,” replied the blonde, “but I couldn’t breathe.”

I am sure you enjoyed the Hanging-out here so long. Please leave your comments and share if you like it.

PS: A compliment to India Post. Hanging the letter on the traditional Courier Pigeon would have delivered the letter faster, No?
