DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?

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

1. Online retailer Amazon.com removed listings for underwear carrying the image of Hindu deity Lord Hanuman after protests from Hindus.

2. Big Bang Theory star Kunnal Nayyar took a pay cut so that two cast members of the popular CBS show could get a pay raise.

3. The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) set a world record by launching 104 satellites into orbit on a single rocket, beating the previous record of 37.

4. Among the satellites launched into space by ISRO is one that will beam images of Shahrukh Khan to his followers around the world.

5. A Kolkata woman filed a police complaint after allegedly finding a lizard in her french fries from McDonald’s.

 

 

(1,2,3, and 5 really happened.)
