DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?

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

1. This year’s Prayagraj Kumbh Mela set Guinness World Records in three categories: largest sanitation drive, largest hand painting theme, and largest parade of buses.

2. Trevor Noah, host of The Daily Show, was criticized for joking that an India-Pakistan war would be like a Bollywood movie—”the most entertaining war of all time.”

3. Noah received numerous tweets from Indians saying that an India-Pakistan war would be more like a Lollywood movie—”not very entertaining at all.”

4. University of Missouri sued an Indian-American professor for allegedly stealing and selling an Indian- American student’s research.

5. Donald Harris, the Jamaican-American father of presidential candidate Kamala Harris, expressed his disapproval of her joking that she supports the legalization of marijuana partly because “half my family is from Jamaica.”

 

 

(​1, 2, 4, and 5 really happened.)
