DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?

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

1. A 25-year-old Punjab man named Sandeep Singh set a Guinness World Record by balancing a spinning basketball on a toothbrush in his mouth for 53 seconds.

2. The Indian Dental Association issued a statement congratulating Singh on his achievement: “It is important that you set a good example for our children. Next time, please keep toothbrush in your mouth for at least two minutes.”

3. A charity that’s building toilets in the Uttarakhand village of Maroda launched an effort to rename the village after President Trump.

4. A poll showed that Trump enjoys an 82 percent approval rating in Maroda, more than twice as high as in America.

5. During a visit to the White House, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi inadvertently referred to President Trump’s wife as “Ivanka.”

 

 

(1 and 3 really happened.)
