DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?

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

1. A political candidate in Karachi, Pakistan, sat in piles of garbage and lay in sewage water to bring attention to the city’s unhygienic conditions.

2. Two Gujarat jewelers created a Guinness World Record by setting 6,690 diamonds into a single ring, shaped like a lotus flower.

3. A security camera outside a store in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, caught a thief pretending to perform an exercise routine, including reaching up and discreetly unscrewing a lightbulb.

4. Several trains were delayed in Uttar Pradesh after a station master got drunk and fell asleep while on duty.

5. Suraj Patel, a candidate for Congress from New York City, used the dating app Tinder to pick up potential voters.

 

 

(All five really happened.)
