2. A chain of stores in Chennai introduced saris with pockets, so women can easily carry cell phones and other items.

3. Amitabh Bachchan made a cameo appearance in Beyonce’s “Countdown” music video.

4. The world's cheapest tablet computer, priced at just Rs.2,250 and called Aakash, was launched in India.

5. Four Indian boxers qualified for next year's Olympics in London.

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