DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?

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

1. Gujarat’s first-ever gay-pride parade was held in Surat, with more than 100 participants.

2. A Mississippi judge ordered a Sikh man to leave a courtroom and not return until he had removed “that rag” from his head.

3. The NFL filed a $1.5 million lawsuit against singer M.I.A. for extending her middle finger during a 2012 Super Bowl halftime performance.

4. Woody Allen pulled his movie Blue Jasmine from screens in India because he objected to the mandatory anti-tobacco warnings that would have been displayed during smoking scenes.

5. Comedian Dan Nainan was arrested after he allegedly punched a reporter who panned his performance on Twitter.

 

 

(All 5 really happened.)
