DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?

1.  India made its first commercial shipment of pomegranates by sea to the United States.

2. A Dubai restaurant, opened by an Indian celebrity chef, shared a video online of its special dal dish, enhanced with gold dust.

3. A school in Kerala introduced an AI-powered, robotic teacher that can answer complex questions in various subjects.

4. A student in Kerala said he is developing an AI-powered, robotic student so he can stay home and play video games.

5. India’s Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) ordered seven airlines, including Air India, to deliver passengers’ baggage within 10 to 30 minutes of an aircraft’s engine shutdown.

 

(1, 2, 3 and 5 really happened.)
