Did That Really Happen?

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

1. An Indian-American surgeon in New Jersey had his medical license temporarily suspended for allegedly reusing disposable one-use anal catheters on multiple patients.

2. Ajit Pai, a 42-year-old DJ from Goa, received numerous online hate messages that were intended for FCC chairman Ajit Pai, following the latter’s unpopular decision to reverse Internet neutrality rules.

3. Dr. Sanjay Gupta, an anesthesiologist in Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania, signed a book contract with Penguin Random House after the publisher mistakenly sent him an offer intended for Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN’s chief medical correspondent.

4. In a third case of mistaken identity, CNN showed a picture of Rajiv “Raj” Shah, former head of the United States Agency for International Development, while displaying a quote from White House principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah.



(1, 2, and 4 really happened.)
