Hi,

Tonight a rectoscalar wave is passing at 10.25 pm, Indian Standard
Time....
This causes damage in mobiles and computers.....
So switch off your mobiles and computers at the specified time...
This has been published in todays The Hindu paper also....
Keep fwd this message to your friends and loved ones.....
