DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?

DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?

1.  More than a dozen Indian-American candidates won state legislature seats across America.

2.  A stretch of 101st Avenue in Queens, New York, was co-named Punjab Avenue to honor the Punjabi community in the area.

3.  After the election results were announced, an Indian newspaper had a headline that said: “Kamala Harris Wins U.S. Election, Biden too.”

4.  Amit P. Mehta, a U.S. District Judge who enjoys the music of Jay-Z, Kanye West, Drake, and Eminem, was selected to preside over the Justice Department’s lawsuit against Google.

5. Meena Harris, the niece of Kamala Harris, drew criticism for tweeting a picture that depicted the vice president-elect as the Goddess Durga slaying President Donald Trump.

(1,2, 4 and 5 really happened.)
