Looking back at the past seems to be a favorite pastime of social media users. There's never a non-viral day on Twitter, and the latest hash-tag to have taken Twitter and Facebook by storm is #BecauseOfNehru. A seemingly serious epithet, the origins of the hash-tag are unknown. Speculation, though, is rife.
