DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?

DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?

1.The Biden-Harris presidential campaign began offering free virtual yoga classes every Thursday afternoon to volunteers and supporters.

2. Mumbai installed 240 pedestrian signals featuring female silhouettes instead of male stick figures, an initiative designed to promote equality and empower women.

3. After Kamala Harris used the Tamil word “chithi” (mother’s younger sister) at the Democratic National Convention, donations poured into her campaign through a WhatsApp group called “Chithis for Kamala.”

4. Thanking Indian-American supporters of Donald Trump, a right-wing commentator said the president “is wise like an ullu,” inadvertently using a derogatory Hindi term for owl.

5. The founder of the Republican Hindu Coalition threatened to reduce financial support for President Trump’s re-election campaign unless Trump meets their six demands, including voicing a new campaign slogan in Hindi.

(1, 2, ​4 and 5 really happened.)
