Yeh Answer Mujhe De De Thakur

1. The company X’s symbol is ‘Y’ also called the ‘X Man’ introduced in 1898, by French artist O'Galop (Marius Rossillon), and is one of the world's oldest trademarks. André X apparently commissioned the creation of this jolly, rotund figure after his brother, Édouard. The nickname Y comes from an early ad caption stating "Nunc est Y," a Latin phrase meaning "Now is the time to drink." (The ad showed the ‘X Man’ drinking down a beverage filled with spikes, nails, glass, etc. to show that its product was tough and could withstand the rigors of the open road). The original Y wore glasses and smoked a cigar. Y made a brief guest appearance in the Asterix series, as the chariot-wheel dealer in certain translations, including the English one, of Asterix in Switzerland. Give X and Y.

2. Simple trivia; just identify the Goddess.
