DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?

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

1. Police in Uttar Pradesh filed charges against a Muslim politician who offered a Rs. 51 crore reward to the Charlie Hebdo attackers.

2. America’s new Surgeon General Vivek Murthy suggested a warning label on chivda and other fried Indian snacks: “This product could make you fat.”

3. Goa’s Sports and Youth Affairs Minister Ramesh Tawadkar said the state would open centers to treat gay youths and make them “normal.”

4. A prominent sports columnist referred to Vivek Ranadivé, owner of the NBA’s Sacramento Kings, as “Aladdin.”

5. India’s Bhakti Sharma set a world record by swimming 1.4 miles in 52 minutes in one degree temperature in the Antarctic Ocean.

 

 

(1, 3, 4, and 5 really happened.)
