DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?

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

1. A man in Madhya Pradesh who threw a stone at his neighbor’s dog had his ear bitten off—by the dog’s owner.

2. The United States named a mountain in Antarctica, Mount Sinha, in honor of Indian-American scientist Ankhouri Sinha.

3. Indian-American twin brothers Akshaya and Mihir Trivedi graduated from a Wisconsin high school with the exact same grade point average of 4.81.

4. Urban Outfitters began selling a duvet cover featuring Lord Ganesh.

5. Hindu activist Rajan Zed set a world record by sending out a press release protesting the duvet cover within one minute of its availability online.

 

 

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