1)In 1939 the then Soviet Foreign Minister, claimed Russia was not
dropping bombs on Finland, but merely airlifting food to starving
Finns. The Finns soon dubbed the RRAB-3 cluster bomb “X”, and named
the improvised incendiary device that they used to counter Soviet
tanks the “Y”, as “a drink to go with the food”.ID X,Y.

2)Beacon Batch is the summit area of Black Down, the highest hill in
the Mendip Hills, Somerset, in south-western hisory,  fires
of creosote and water to simulate incendiary bombs exploding were
used. In addition glow boxes were used to simulate the streets and
railways, the light bulbs were powered by electrical generators,
powered by Coventry Climax petrol engines contained in two bunkers.
The decoys were fitted with dim red lights, simulating activities like
the stoking of steam locomotives. Drums of oil were also ignited to
simulate the effect of a blazing city or town, with the aim
of___________________________.FITB and put funda.

3)Between 1428 and 1460 AD, King Harikesari Parakkirama Pandian, then
king of Madurai, ruled the southern region of Madurai. According to
History, he wanted to construct a temple for Lord Shiva at ________.
Therefore he went to X  and worshiped Lord Shiva there and brought a
Shivalingam from there. While returning to his palace with the prized
lingam, he took rest under a grove of Vilva trees, which are favored
by Shiva. The cow which carried the Shivalingam refused to move from
that point which prevented the carrying of the lingam. The king
realized that the wishes of Lord Shiva were different from his own and
placed the lingam in the place where the cow had halted.what is this
place now called?ID X.

4)according to one theory about their origin One can find information
in “Katha Kalpataru” and “Bramhotarpuran” that X evolved from Lord
Shiva’s Gharmabindu. Once, Lord Shiva on his way to war against the
demon Tilakasur, felt thirsty. A drop of sweat fell from his eyebrow,
and from that drop, the first X man emerged. Lord Shiva asked him to
find some water for him to drink; unable to find any water the man
climbed a palm tree and fetched a refreshing drink. Pleased with this
the man was made Treasurer of Alkapuri thus “The Protector of Royal
Treasure “.ID X.

5)X was founded in 1727 by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II who ruled from
1699–1744 and initially his capital was Amber. He felt the need of
shifting his capital city with the increase in population and growing
scarcity of water. The King consulted several books on architecture
and architects before making the layout of X. Finally under the
architectural guidance of Vidyadar Bhattacharya, (initially an
accounts-clerk in the Amber treasury and later promoted to the office
of Chief Architect by the King) X came into existence on the classical
basis of principles of Vastu Shastra and similar classical treatise.ID

    1.Hey this one is repeated da…Remember reading it…Have read this article too..X is Molotov bread basket & Y is Molotov cocktail.
    2.Ok this Beacon Batch is one of the Star fish sites..These sites were Britain’s idea of deceiving mainly the Germans..Ok basically it was to fool the attackers & make them drop the bombs on wrong locations.
    3.This King wanted the Temple at Tenkasi which obviously means South Kasi..The Cow halted at place called Sivakasi which is where you can see the Kasi Viswanatha Swamy Temple.
    4.I was on my way back to Trichy,reading a India quiz book when a Patti next to asked me what Bhandari meant..I had no Idea..She did tell me that Bhandaris are people who steer the ship..I came back & read a little more about it..I did get to read this version of origin of Bhandaris..Brilliant Question..Kudos to you & that Patti..People from Srirangam do know their Mythology & Sanskrit right.
    5.Simple question..Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh was the one who found Jaipur..
