DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?

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

1. A court in Punjab awarded a 20-coach train to a farmer after he sued the Northern Railways for not compensating him for land they had used to build a railway line.

2. A Bangladeshi-American student who wrote “#Black- LivesMatter” one hundred times in the essay section of his application was granted admission to Stanford University.

3. A group of woodcutters found a girl, aged 10 to 12, living among monkeys in the Katraniaghat forest range in northern India.

4. Priyanka Chopra was voted the second most beautiful woman in the world.

5. Spiritual guru Deepak Chopra urged President Trump to submit to a psychiatric and neurological evaluation.

 

 

(All five really happened.)
