Hanuman Gadha found during an excavation in Sri Lanka.

Public Awareness
This picture circulating heavily on social networking websites claims to show the Hindu God Hanumanji's Gadha (mace) which is supposedly discovered during an excavation in Sri Lanka. Other versions said it is the world's largest Gada of Veer Hanuman at Gujarat. The claims are not facts. Lord Hanuman is a famous Hindu deity known for his strength, discipline and dedication. Gada is his weapon that he carries to destroy evil. In the Hindu epic of Ramayana, Lord Hanuman fights with Ravana in Sri Lanka to help his master Lord Rama get back his abducted wife Sita. Perhaps this is the reason why the picture in question is associated with such a claim. The Gada shown in picture is real, but as such it does not belong to Lord Hanuman, and is not discovered in Sri Lanka or Gujarat for that ma...
Bhagat Singh was hanged on the 14th of February,Valentine’s Day

Bhagat Singh was hanged on the 14th of February,Valentine’s Day

Public Awareness
This hoax was a  rather unfortunate and disrespectful mis-interpretation of Bhagat Singh's biography. Bhagat Singh was arrested following the 1929 Assembly bomb throwing incident. Fearing civil agitation, the then Viceroy of India Lord Irwin set up a special tribunal called the Privy Council to speed up his trail process. An Indian defence committee in Punjab appealed against the Privy Council, which was again dismissed by the  Judge Viscount Dunedin. After the rejection, the then Congress party president Madan Mohan Malviya filed a mercy appeal before Lord Irwin on 14 February 1931, but even that did not work, and Bhagat Singh was hung on 23 March 1931 at 7:30 pm in Lahore jail along with fellow freedom fighters Rajguru and Sukhdev.

Photograph of Nathuram Godse shooting Gandhi

Public Awareness
  This photograph was believed to be clicked just moments before Nathuram Godse assassinated M.K. Gandhi. But as it turns out, no photograph exists of that day and all we have are eyewitness accounts. This picture is a scene from a 1963 British movie called Nine Hours To Rama. The character playing Godse is German actor, Horst Buchholz.
Mysterious tree in Nalgonda

Mysterious tree in Nalgonda

Public Awareness
  Photos started circulating of a tree in the Nalgonda forest in Andhra Pradesh with mysterious carvings of animals like crocodiles, monkeys, snakes and spiders. Reports suggested that this was a Baobab tree which has the largest trunk in the world. But the truth is that there is no such tree in Nalgonda. This image is of an art work called the Tree Of Life in Disneyland. The pictures shown in the message are not manipulated, but they are not real either. All these pictures actually belong to artificial creations of Disney Animal Kingdom, which is an animal theme park situated in Florida, USA. The massive looking tree sculpture, famously known as 'Tree of Life', is 145-foot tall, 50-foot wide, and serves as the centerpiece and icon in Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park. As many ...
Why INDIA is named INDIA?

Why INDIA is named INDIA?

Public Awareness
I recently came across a Whatapp message "India was named after independence and it stands for Independent Nation Declared In August". As per socialhoax.com this is a hoax message. The details about naming India is below: The name of India is a corruption of the word Sindhu. Neighbouring Arabs, Iranians uttered‘s’ as ‘h’ and called this land Hindu. Greeks pronounced this name as Indus. Sindhu is the name of the Indus River, mentioned in the Rig-Veda, one of the oldest extant Indo-European texts, composed in the northwestern region of the Indian subcontinent roughly between 1700-1100 BC. There are strong linguistic and cultural similarities with the Iranian Avesta, often associated with the early culture of 2200-1600 BC. The English term is from Greek Ἰνδία (Indía), via Latin India.

Rumours lead to stop in transactions of Rs 10 coins

Public Awareness
FARIDABAD: The people of this town have been confused for the past two weeks about whether Rs 10 coin is legitimate. While some shopkeepers are accepting it, others are rejecting it outright. That's because of a rumour circulated by some people on social media that the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has declared the Rs 10 coin invalid. "The rumour that is being circulated is wrong, the RBI has not issued any guidelines regarding the banning of the Rs 10 coin and any person who refuses to accept a legal form of money can be booked under Section 489A to 489E of the IPC," said A K Ahuja, assistant manager of the Neelam Chowk branch of SBI. "Every now and then, we receive around 50 bags of Rs 10 coins containing 2,000 coins from the RBI, which proves that the coins are not invalid," he f...

Public Awareness, Social Media
This is the exact message getting viral on social media and Whatsapp Groups. People wants a phone having good features by spending less. That's why they are sharing this type of message. Before going in details, just clarifying that this message is 100% FAKE.  Now see the below points: Amazon always sell products on their own website, which is http://www.amazon.in (For India). But the saying website is http://amazon.mobile-flashsale.com. They have used sub-domain amazon with their website mobile-flashsale.com. Amazon was launched in 1994 in USA and in 2013 in India. So it cannot be a golden Anniversary offer. Golden Anniversary means 50 Years. If Amazon have to give any offer, they will do it directly on their won website with some competition, games or lucky draw. Above
