The name ‘Bengalooru’ was recorded much before King Ballala’s time in a 9th century inscription found in a temple in Begur village near Bangalore.

Who am I? – ADOLF HITLER

WHO AM I?

I was born in one country, raised in another. My father was born in another country. I was not his only child.

He fathered several children with numerous women.
I became very close to my mother, as my father showed no interest in me.

My mother died at an early age from cancer.
Although my father deserted me and my mother raised me,
I later wrote a book idolising my father not my mother.

Later in life, questions arose over my real name.
My birth records were sketchy.
No one was able to produce a legitimate, reliable birth certificate.
