DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?

 

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

1. An emerging hip hop artist was crowned Miss India USA 2016.

2. The U.S. Army issued new regulations allowing Sikhs to serve their country while keeping their turbans, unshorn hair, and beards.

3. Indian-American prodigy Tiara Abraham, a 10-year-old college student in Sacramento, California, released her first album, a collection of nine songs in six languages.

4. An Indian-American man wrote a six-page letter on an Air India flight from Mumbai to Newark, New Jersey, trying in vain to persuade a fellow passenger he had touched inappropriately not to file charges against him.

5. During a rally in Florida, Donald Trump recognized his supporters from “the India” and said, “We did great with the Hindus.”

 

 

(All 5 really happened.)
