DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?

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

1. The University of Montana was awarded a Fulbright instructor to teach Hindi during the 2015-16 academic year.

2. An embryonic twin was found inside the brain of an Indian woman undergoing surgery in Los Angeles for a suspected tumor.

3. A jury awarded $21 million to the survivors of an 81-year-old Indian American woman after doctors in a Michigan hospital mistakenly operated on her brain after looking at the CT scan of another patient.

4. A BJP leader attributed the Nepal earthquake to Rahul Gandhi’s visit to the Kedarnath Temple.

5. A former employee of Tata Consultancy Services filed a lawsuit accusing the company of favoring “South Asians” in its hiring and promotion.

 

 

(All 5 really happened.)
