DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?

1. Just before the launch of the moon mission Chandrayaan-3, scientists from the Indian Space Research Organization visited an Andhra Pradesh temple to pray, carrying a miniature model of Chandrayaan-3.

2. Doctors in Madhya Pradesh successfully removed a 33-pound tumor from the abdomen of a 41-year-old woman who had weighed 108 pounds.

3. An Indian American engineer filed a lawsuit against a missile defense contractor, alleging that he was fired for speaking in Hindi during a video call with a dying relative.

4. Two more Indian Americans, Shiva Ayyadurai and Hirsh Vardhan Singh, announced that they’re running for president, bringing the total to four.

5. Ayyadurai suggested organizing a special Indian American Presidential Debate with CNN’s Manu Raju as the moderator.

(1, 2, ​3 and 4 really happened.)
