DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?

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

1. A private ambulance service that exclusively serves injured cows was launched in Uttar Pradesh.

2. A survey revealed that 77 percent of Indian-Americans, 88 percent of Pakistani-Americans and 90 percent of Bangladeshi-Americans voted for Hillary Clinton in last November’s general election.

3. Police in Uttar Pradesh announced plans to use cameras on the Noida-Greater Noida expressway to issue tickets to motorists who speak on mobile phones and don’t wear seat belts.

4. A supermarket tabloid ran a headline that said, “Shocker: Two Non-Indian Kids among Finalists at National Spelling Bee!”

5. Some of the five Indian-Americans in Congress referred to themselves as the “Samosa Caucus.”

 

 

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