This got me to scratch my head for a good part of the day. For those of you who already know, please don't spoil for those who want to give it a try:

Ram and Shyam want to know what Sita's birthday is, but she doesn't have the straight answer for them. She gives them the 10 possible dates:
May 15, 16, 19
June 17, 18
July 14, 16
August 14,15,17

Sita then tells Ram the month of her birthday and Shyam the day of her birthday.

Now folks: for the sake of this riddle, we have to assume here that every one is truthful and the logical assumptions are made to unwind the riddle through the following convoluted statements:

Ram: I got no idea what Sita's DOB is , but I know Shyam doesn't know it either.
Shyam: Before you said so, I didn't know either, but I know now.
Ram: Then I also know when Sita's DOB (except the year) is.

What is Sita's birthday?

Exact keywords would make it too easy to Google it up, thus the "originality."

Let's see what others come up with. :-)

IP Man, if you attempted to solve it, this should make some sense; however, If you didn't, I'm pretty sure, it will confuse you even more. :P :-)

Let's review the statements where the clues to this riddle are:

**Ram: I got no idea what Sita's DOB is , but I know Shyam doesn't know it either.**
**Shyam: Before you said so, I didn't know either, but I know now.**
**Ram: Then I also know when Sita's DOB (except the year) is.**

Since Ram knows Shyam doesn't know Sita's birthday, then Shyam's day must be listed more than once. If it was 18 or 19 then he'd be able to guess it.

Therefore, the month she told Ram contains only duplicate numbers. And that's either July or August.

Now that Shyam knows this and can figure out her birth day with that little information, Ram knows it's not the 14th because of the duplicate number issue again, but Shyam still wouldn't have known which month and since there's only one day left in the month that Ram was told, it must be July 16th.

"Therefore, the month she told Ram contains only duplicate numbers. And that's either July or August."

---what if the day was 15,16 or 17? How can you write off other dates in May and June?

This not that difficult, Assuming the last 2 statement are correct.

If Ram knows Shyam does not know her birth day, means her birth day months are not May and June. It is because for Shyam only way to know the month is if the days are either 18 or 19. If Sita had told Ram May or June, he cannot be sure that Shyam does not know because she could tell Shyam 18 or 19 as well.

So the possible months are July and August.

Shyam knows the month after "Ram tells that Shyam does not know". Shyam can know only if Sita told Shyam her birth day as 16.

Ram: I got no idea what Sita's DOB is , but I know Shyam doesn't know it either.
-----------I agree with Stallon. This riddle is a joke and if anyone thinks that they have cracked the answer, they are only proving their internet searching ability.

You can't write off first 2 months based on information provided.
If you fail to see the leap of assumption there, god bless you.

हरे भगवान यहा त कुरो कता बाट कता पुगी सकेछ! 

सोमरस गुरु (sir): Please allow this fool to go into a little depth to address your original query as to how you can write off the two months with the given information. Let me give it a try:

Consider the following facts:
Sita tells Ram the month she was born.
Sita tells Shyam the day she was born.

Now from the facts above alone, had Shyam been told Sita was born on the 18th or 19th, he would have known her birthday right away. Why? Those two days i.e. 18th and 19th show up only ONCE.

Now from the logic so far, Sita didn't say it is 18th or 19th otherwise Shyam would have jumped right way and would have told what month she was born. That didn't happen.

Now the crux of your query, Somras sir:

So the day Sita told Ram must be either July or August because the dates in those two months are ALSO in another month. Again, IF Ram was told she was born in May or June, the days could be May 19 or June 18, which in turn wouldn't have made Ram so sure that Shyam didn't know.

Did it make any sense? I hope so.

No, it's not a April fool joke or anything of that nature. And no, it's not a laughing matter.

Now this makes sense.
Good question. Brain Consuming.
You could have given the answer initially and asked us how?
