DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?

Compiled/partly written by MELVIN DURAI Email Compiled/partly written by MELVIN DURAI
March 2012
DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN? 1. India’s Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs printed a pamphlet entitled “Thinking of the marriage of your daughter with an NRI?”

2. Singer M.I.A. showed her middle finger to a camera during the halftime show at the Super Bowl.

3. A temple in Orissa had to be purified after a Russian man claiming to be a Hindu was found in the sanctuary.

4. During her recent visit to India, Oprah Winfrey posed in front of the Taj Mahal and asked if it’s for sale.

5. A German orchestra toured India, playing the hits of A.R. Rahman.

 

 

(1, 2,3 and 5 really happened.)
