DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?

1.  A wax figure of yoga guru Baba Ramdev was unveiled at Madame Tussauds New York.

2. Two public schools in Fremont, California, added Hindi to their curriculum for the 2024-25 school year.

3. Tabla maestro Zakir Hussain won three Grammy Awards, bringing his lifetime total to five.

4. Bilal Ilyas Jhandir, a 20-year-old Pakistan man, set a Guinness World Record by identifying 34 Taylor Swift songs from their lyrics within a minute.

5. Jhandir failed to identify Swift’s boyfriend, Travis Kelce, from a Kansas City Chiefs team photo.

 

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