DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?

1. An Indian American neurosurgeon pled guilty to accepting more than $3 million in bribes for performing spinal surgeries at a hospital in Long Beach, California.

2. A Sikh man was charged with a hate crime for verbally assaulting a Hindu man at a Taco Bell in Fremont, California.

3. After losing his bid to become Prime Minister of Britain, Rishi Sunak announced that he and his wife plan to move to California.

4. A proposal to rename the Taj Mahal as Tejo Mahalaya failed to receive enough support from Agra Municipal Corporation.

5. Vedant Patel, principal deputy spokesperson for the State Department, became the first Indian-American to hold the department’s daily news briefing.

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