magine this: The Indian subcontinent is now the bed of the sea, coral grows on Rajpath and schools of fish are hanging in Blue Frog. The only dry land left is the peak of Mount Everest. That is until a 1,500-meter-tall wave forms, hovers for a split second, and crashes down on it, submerging the last dry land on Earth.

This tsunami is nothing to worry about; it’s the creative trademark of apocalypse movie 2012. It was attributed to findings by Indian astrophysicist Jimi Mistry, who claimed that rogue neutrinos in the sun produced solar flares so intense that the temperature of Earth’s core increased rapidly. Or in simpler words, not likely.
