DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?

DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?

1. Parents in a California city expressed opposition to yoga classes taught at elementary schools, claiming that they promote Hinduism.

2. Michael Haley, husband of South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, was deployed to Afghanistan on a year-long mission.

3. The initial batch of India’s $50 tablet computer named Aakash was mostly built in China.

4. Promoting an article about the death of sitar maestro Ravi Shankar, MTV’s website used a photo of Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar.

5. An MTV host explained to viewers that a “sitar” is what you get when you combine “sitting” with “guitar.”

 

 

(1, 2, 3, and 4 really happened.)
