1)”X” is a landmark ‘lung’ area of an indian city, located within the
heart of city in the Central Administrative Area. Originally “X” was
created in 1870, when Major General Richard Sankey was the then
British Chief Engineer of Mysore state.This public park was first
named as “Meade’s Park” after Sir John Meade, the acting Commissioner
of Mysore in 1870 and subsequently renamed as “X” after the longest
serving commissioner of the time, Sir Mark _____. To commemorate the
Silver Jubilee of Sri Krishnaraja Wodeyar’s rule in Mysore State, in
the year 1927, the park was again renamed as “Sri. Chamarajendra
Park”, in memory of the 19th Century ruler of the state Sri
Chamarajendra Wodeyar (1868 – 94) during whose rule the park came into
existence.ID X.

2)”X” means a grove of coconut trees. “X” was brought to the public
eye by the Maharaja of Travancore.The European guests of the then
Travancore kingdom discovered the potentiality of “X” as a tourist
destination in the 1930s. However, “X” shot into limelight in the
early seventies with arrivals of the masses of hippies. This exodus
started the transformation of a casual fishing village of Kerala into
one of the most important tourist destinations in all India.ID X.

3)The town of Chickballapur is approximately 56 km north of
Bengaluru. Chikballapur has a high elevation located in the center of
a hilly region. “Panchagiri” is a common descriptor of Chikballapur as
it is surrounded by 5 picturesque hills.The five hills are known as
______ Giri, Chandra Giri, Skandagiri, Brahma Giri, and Hema

4)The Digital Dictionary of Buddhism’s ruyizhu entry says about “X”.

       A maṇi-jewel; magical jewel, which manifests whatever one
wishes for . According to one’s desires, treasures, clothing and food
can be manifested, while sickness and suffering can be removed, water
can be purified, etc. It is a metaphor for the teachings and virtues
of the Buddha. … Said to be obtained from the dragon-king of the sea,
or the head of the great fish, Makara, or the relics of a Buddha.

treasure hunters have searched for this mystic of mystic gems. It is
supposedly hidden in Shambhala (a magic forest and temple) that lies
in the Hindu Kush.ID X.

5)”trunko” was a creature reputedly washed up on Margate Beach but
despite being there for 10 days, no scientist ever investigated the
carcass while it was beached, so no reliable description has been
published, and no photographs of it have ever been published. Some
people who have never been identified were reported to have described
the animal as possessing snowy-white fur, an elephantine trunk, a
lobster-like tail, and a carcass devoid of blood.The trunk was said to
be attached directly to the animal’s torso, as no head was visible on
the carcass. For this feature, the animal was dubbed “trunko” by
British cryptozoologist Karl Shuker in his 1996 book The
Unexplained.In the March 27, 1925, edition of the Charleroi Mail, in
Charleroi, Pennsylvania, an article entitled “Whales Slain By Hairy
Monster” reported that whales there were killed by a strange creature
which was washed up on a beach exhausted and fell unconscious, but
made its way back into the ocean and swam away after 10 days, never to
be seen again.what indian legend is associated with trunko by
