The first X celebration in India was organised in Madras by the Kisan
Party of Hindustan. This was also the first time the red flag was used in
India. The party leader Singaravelu Chettiar made arrangements to
celebrate X in two places in 1923. One meeting was held at the beach
opposite to the Madras High Court; the other meeting was held at the
Triplicane beach. The Hindu newspaper, published from Madras
The Kisan party has introduced X day celebrations in Chennai.
Comrade Singaravelar presided over the meeting. A resolution was
passed stating that the government should declare X Day as a holiday.
The president of the party explained the non-violent principles of the
party. There was a request for financial aid. It was emphasized that
workers of the world must unite to achieve independence
It’s been said that X was named after a room at CERN (if you
read about Tim Berners-Lee, you’ll know that that’s where the
web began) where the original web servers were located.
However, Tom S. tells us: “Having visited CERN myself, I can
tell you that Room X is not on the fourth floor – the CERN
office numbering system doesn’t work like that – the first digit
usually refers to the *building*number (i.e. Building 4), and
the second two to the office number. But, strangely, there is
no room “__″ in building “4″, the offices start at “410″ and
work upwards – don’t ask me why. Sorry to disappoint you
all, but there is no Room X in CERN –it simply doesn’t
exist, and certainly hasn’t been preserved as “the place where
the web began”. In fact, there *is* a display about
this, including a model of the first NeXT server, but the whole
“Room X″ thing is just a myth.”
8.Origin of which famous phrase?
In the 1800s, British sailors took women along
on extended voyages. When babies were born

The term X is an alteration or Hobson-Jobson of
the Persian phrase "Shāh Māt" which
means, literally, "the King is helpless" (or
"ambushed", "defeated", or "stumped", but not
"dead").It is a common misconception that it
means "the King is dead“. The term X in modern
parlance is a dead metaphor for an irrefutable
and strategic victory.
Its main body is solid sterling silver and silver gilt, while its
plinth is made of malachite, a semi-precious stone. The
plinth has a silver band around its circumference, upon
which the names of the title-winning clubs are listed.
Malachite's green colour is also representative of the green
field of play. The design of the trophy is based on the
heraldry of Three Lions . Two of the lions are found above
the handles on either side of the trophy – the third is
symbolised by the captain of the title winning team as he
raises the trophy, and its gold crown, above his head. In
2004, a special gold version of the trophy was
commissioned to commemorate X for the reason Y.

X was the 13th element to be discovered. For this reason, and
also due to its use in explosives, poisons and nerve agents, it is
sometimes referred to as "the Devil's element". It was the first
element to be discovered that was not known since ancient
times. The discovery of X is credited to the German alchemist
Hennig Brand in 1669, although other chemists might have
discovered X around the same time. Brand experimented with
urine, which contains considerable quantities of dissolved X from
normal metabolism. Working in Hamburg, Brand attempted to
create the fabled philosopher's stone through the distillation of
some salts by evaporating urine, and in the process produced a
white material that glowed in the dark and burned brilliantly. It
was named X mirabilis ("miraculous bearer of light"). His process
originally involved letting urine stand for days until it gave off a
terrible smell. Then he boiled it down to a paste, heated this
paste to a high temperature, and led the vapours through
water, where he hoped they would condense to gold. Instead, he
obtained a white, waxy substance that glowed in the dark.
While studying in a renowned Institution, X qualified to
try for a transfer scholarship at Cal Tech, widely

Like a number of other animated cartoons from the 1930s to the early
1950s, X featured racial stereotypes. After explosions, for
example, characters with blasted faces would resemble stereotypical
blacks, with large lips and bow-tied hair. Perhaps the most controversial
element of the show is the character Mammy Two Shoes, a poor black
maid who speaks in a stereotypical "black accent" and has a rodent
problem. One of the creators of X, who was responsible for these
gags, claimed that the racial gags in X did not reflect his racial opinion;
they were just reflecting what was common in society and cartoons at
the time and were meant to be humorous. Nevertheless, such
stereotypes are considered by some to be racist today. Mammy TwoShoes' voice was redubbed by Turner in the Xd-1990s to make the
character sound less stereotypical; the resulting accent sounds more
Irish. One cartoon in particular, His Mouse Friday, is usually kept out of
television rotation because of its depiction of cannibals. If shown, the
cannibals' dialogue is edited out, although their mouths still move.
