DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?

 

How much do you know about current events in India and the U.S.? Try this short quiz!
(Don't page-down yet: only 4 questions this time!)

 

1.About 70 Indian passports were stolen from a company that provides services to the Indian consulate in San Francisco.

2. A seventh-grade Indian-American student developed a cost-effective Braille printer using Lego Mindstorms EV3.

3. Hollywood star John Travolta declined to present an award at this month’s International Indian Film Academy Awards in Tampa Bay, saying he was afraid to pronounce names like “Hrithik” and “Deepika.”

4. New York-based fashion designer Mara Hoffman withdrew swimwear carrying images of Lord Ganesh following a protest from Hindu activist Rajan Zed.

 

 

(1, 2, and 4 really happened.)
