DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?

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

1. The United States Postal Service announced the official release of its first Diwali stamp.

2. A South Indian organization petitioned the postal service for a “Deepavali” stamp in alternate years.

3. A fundraiser called “Yes We Khan” was launched to get Khizr Khan, the Pakistani-American lawyer who rebuked Donald Trump at the Democratic National Convention, to run for political office.

4. The wife of a BJP MLA in India received a Rs. 5.5 crore Lamborghini as a gift from her husband and crashed it into an auto-rickshaw on her first drive.

5. India’s tourism minister advised female visitors not to wear skirts for their own safety.

 

 

(1, 3, 4, and 5 really happened.)
