The Urdu term X means a "migrant", it is associated
in early Islamic history to the migration of Muslims
from Makkah to Madinah. After the partition of India
and Pakistan, a significant number of Muslims
emigrated or were out-migrated from territory that
became India, they were called X. In the Film
"Sarfarosh" Naseerudin Shah played the role of a X
who is provoked to wage a war against India.
“X" is a children's song and was popularized by a famous sitcom
where it is rendered as “Z". The words to “X" were written by Edith
Newlin, and are still under copyright. The tune was taken from a
traditional English children's song, "Little bird, have you heard..." but
the note values had to be changed to fit the new words.
Versions of the song have been released by Australian children's
performer Patsy Biscoe, and by the long-running Australian
Broadcasting Corporation children's TV show Playschool.
By Christmas 2011, “Z" merchandise such as a plush stuffed singing
cat or T-shirt with ‟the sitcom‟ version of the lyrics could be

News of the World's Columbian Exposition to be held in 1893, in Chicago, Illinois, drew X to the
city. In 1891, the directors of the World's Columbian Exposition issued a challenge to
American engineers to conceive of a monument for the fair that would surpass the Eiffel
Tower, the great structure of the Paris International Exposition of 1889. The planners
wanted something "original, daring and unique."
X returned with the idea of a Y.
The planners feared his design for Y but still X persisted.
X returned in a few weeks with several respectable endorsements from established
engineers, and the committee agreed to allow construction to begin. Most convincingly, he
had recruited several local investors to cover the $400,000 cost of construction. The
planning commission of the Exposition hoped that admissions from the Y would pull the fair
out of debt and eventually make it profitable.
After the fair closed, X claimed that the exhibition management had robbed him and his
investors of their rightful portion of the nearly $750,000 profit that his Y brought in. He
spent the next two years in litigation.

X‟s wife, Falguni Devi, died due to lack of medical treatment because
the nearest town with a doctor was 70 kilometres (43 mi) away

cut, 25-foot-deep in places and 30-foot-wide to form a road
through a mountain in the Gehlour hills, working day and night for 22
years from 1960 to 1982. His feat reduced the distance between the

„Grey Wolf: The Escape Of X‟ a book by British authors Gerrard Williams and Simon Dunstan
believe evidence of the X‟s suicide is flawed and X faked his own suicide and fled to Argentina
where he lived until a ripe old age. They go on to state that X with his wife had two daughters
before he died in 1962 at the age of 73.
The book quotes a number of sources, such as cooks and doctors, who claim to have known X
before he died aged 73. They claim that X's bloodline survived through two daughters he had
with his wife.
It is not the first time that X has been rumoured to have fled to Argentina. Author Abel Basti
claimed the same in his 2003 book X In Argentina.
Mr Williams, a historian and journalist said – “We didn‟t want to re-write history, but the
evidence we‟ve discovered about the escape of X is just too overwhelming to ignore. There is
no forensic evidence for his or his wife‟s death , and the stories from the eyewitnesses of
their continued survival in Argentina are compelling”
While other leading historian Guy Walters branded the story as „2,000 per cent rubbish.‟

of the female protagonist Julie Jordan, sings "X" to comfort and
encourage Julie when her husband, Billy Bigelow, the male lead, kills
himself to avoid capture during a failed robbery. It is reprised in the

and Julie's daughter) is a member. The now invisible Billy, who has
been granted the chance to return to Earth for one day in order to
redeem himself, watches the ceremony and is able to silently
