How much do you know about current events in India and the U.S.? Try this short quiz!

1. An Indian-American entrepreneur helped develop a “smart tampon” that performs monthly diagnostic tests, allowing women to monitor their health and fertility.

2. The opening day of Rajnikanth’s movie Kabali was declared a holiday by some companies in South India.

3. After winning the Mr. World title, 26-year-old Rohit Khandelwal of Hyderabad complained that he wasn’t receiving as much media attention as Aishwarya Rai and Priyanka Chopra.

4. An Indian company sent 6,000 bags of Assam green tea to Donald Trump, saying it wanted him to “cleanse” himself and become less extreme.

5. A 58-year-old Indian man was arrested for inappropriately touching a sleeping woman on a Virgin America flight.



(1, 2, 4, and 5 really happened.)
