2. After hearing that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is virtually single, President Trump joked with his aides that he could set Modi up with someone.

3. Indian-American siblings in New York sued a funeral home for giving the ashes of their father to another Indian-American family with the same last name.

4. Aziz Ansari performed a series of stand-up comedy shows titled “Aziz Ansari Working Out New Material.”
