Stop believing WhatsApp forwards, the Shivaji memorial is not a technological marvel

Indeed, even as Prime Minister Narendra Modi established the framework for the Shiv Smarak dedication in the Arabian Sea December 24, Indians are separated over the requirement for such a costly statue of Chhatrapati​ Shivaji Maharaj. Not just has the commemoration venture been confronting resistance from fisherfolk and tree huggers, who have affirmed it would influence the marine life and nature of the Arabian Sea, however the incredible Rs 3,600-crore sticker price on the landmark has raised more than a couple of eyebrows. So it’s lone characteristic it was outlined on account of a genuine reason, isn’t that so?

At any rate, that is the thing that a forward that has been doing the rounds on WhatsApp since Saturday appears to guarantee. As indicated by the obscure essayist, the statue is not simply being worked to memorialize a warrior ruler, additionally serves as a gigantic sun based board and sonar gadget. Here’s the content in full.

“Many are cribbing about the cost of *Shivaji statue*

What they don’t know is, this statue is a masterstroke by our PM Modi which will pay for itself many circumstances over.

The statue is made of Amorphous Silicon, Cadmium Telluride and Copper Indium Gallium Selenide. This is the very same material used to make sun based cells. Our administration counseled with Dr. Immonen Kirsi, Senior Solar Scientist at VTT Research, Finland to create innovation to shape these materials into a statue frame. This examination took 2.5 years and on December third, Dr. Kirsi sent an email to Modi Sir that it is currently prepared for standard utilize. The statue has ability to create enough power to power all administration workplaces in Mumbai.

The statue additionally has Radial Uniform Projection And Ranging(RUPAR) innovation to track vessels in the Arabian Sea to keep a rehash of the 2008 Mumbai assault where the fear based oppressors entered India through the ocean. RUPAR is the up and coming era of SONAR innovation and has been created at the Indian Institute of Science.

Congrats to all Scientists. It would be ideal if you spread this message broadly.”

Astonishing right? Not a chance. No way. On the off chance that it wasn’t sufficiently clear from the content of the message, this is a fabrication, but a fairly well thoroughly considered one. Also, to help us comprehend, here’s our great companion Google.

Firstly, Amorphous Silicon, Cadmium Telluride and Copper Indium Gallium Selenide ARE all materials utilized as a part of sunlight based boards, they’re simply utilized for various types of them. That implies you’ll never observe every one of them utilized together as a part of a solitary board, regardless of the scale. Keeping in mind a fast inquiry appears to show Dr Immonen Kirsi is a genuine Materials Chemistry specialist, his examination dives more into controlling Green materials. Additionally, there’s no purpose behind a goliath sun oriented board to be kept mystery, particularly as it could balance the fire the statue’s been getting.

Besides, RUPAR is not a thing. RADAR (RAdio Detection And Ranging) and SONAR (SOund Navigation And Ranging) do exist, and are utilized for recognition and route purposes, however RUPAR apparently “undertakings” and reaches. Not the slightest bit does that bode well, and there’s no examination with an even remotely comparable acronym, so how about we simply proceed onward.

Thirdly, and this current one’s a biggie, these messages are at most, three days old. What else is three days old? This post on the r/India subreddit. Here’s a duplicate of what it says:

To every one of the individuals who are cribbing about the Shivaji Maharaj statue as of late initiated in Mumbai.

This is really a Masterstroke by His Excellency PM Modi Ji,Reformer of the Economy, Defender of Kulcha.

The sword on the statue is really a Solar Panel which will produce enough power to illuminate the whole city of Mumbai.

The base of the statue (halfway dwelling under the ocean) is built of extraordinary channels which will change over the salty ocean water into crisp drinkable water, purer than Ganga water.

The highest point of the statue will have an exceptional reciever which will get signals from the Nano GPS tracker in your Rs.2000 notes in the Mumbai Metropolitan area.

Furthermore, there is an inbuilt high recurrence radar inside the statue which will recognize any Pakistani Terrorists attempting to enter Mumbai via ocean.

Particularly if Ajmal Kasab’s cousin and his companions attempt to enter Mumbai, Shivaji Maharaj will himself leave the statue and kick their ass!!!! (Obviously hypersonic super mystery rockets, you trick).

This is a Top Secret and was uncovered in most extreme privacy by a similar individual who let out the mystery of the Nano GPS following chip in Rs.2000 note.

Indeed, even UNESCO doesn’t think about it, so no honors yet!

Dark Money – Check

Psychological warfare – Check

Advancement – Check

Patriotism – ???

Hold up, Soldiers are remaining at the outskirt and you can’t bolster a Statue remaining in ocean??

Patriotism – Check


See that image on the base, ‘/s’? That is the Reddit image for something that is parody. Obviously, that truly shouldn’t be required here in any case, particularly with the most noteworthy appraised remark on this post directly underneath. It appears like one exhausted Reddit client set aside the opportunity to change the parody piece into a marginally less clear mold, and resulting analysts chose to impart it to their families on WhatsApp.

Also, there you have it, a homegrown scam; executed not by an inconvenience making bunch, but rather normal Indians who couldn’t be tried to do some examination on a WhatsApp forward. What’s more, on the off chance that you succumbed to this, you just have yourself to fault. A straightforward Google pursuit would have demonstrated the first post (as set apart by the date to be more established than the sent messages) on Page 1 of the indexed lists. Keep in mind folks, never think something on the Internet that you can’t in any event to some degree affirm.
