Remember this picture, don’t you? If I’m not wrong, this one manages to go viral every Diwali since 3-4 years now. Even a batsman as legendary as Virender Sehwag has shared it on Twitter today. Take a look!
It’s 2015, guys. Let’s just inform our parents and relatives who put this on every family Whatsapp group during Diwali that this is NOT the picture of India during Diwali. NASA itna vela nahi hai. This picture is actually a representation of India’s population growth in 1992, 1998 and 2003, the colours on the picture denote the differences. Don’t believe me? Please watch a segment of On Air With AIB where Tanmay Bhat and Rohan Joshi explain the origins of this photo.
Don’t want to watch the video? Fine, here’s Gursimran Khamba explaining it to you in one image.
Now that we’re on the topic, please also stop forwarding the whole “UNESCO rated our national anthem the best anthem in the world” thing. UNESCO doesn’t sit and rate National Anthems, they have more important things to do. Have a happy Diwali and please send a link of the AIB Roast to all relatives who send this picture to you again!
