Some searchers in India are noticing that when you enter a query into Google that has no matches and Google has no idea what you are looking for, Google will show you a section called "some popular queries."

Here are screen shots of it on desktop and mobile from @mayank_jee and @TheGulshanKumar:

I tried to replicate this from my device in New York but no luck.

I guess this is a way to salvage the search and get the searcher to try to search for anything else, anything at all? Of course, maybe these queries are so popular in India that they drive some nice CPCs on Google Ads?
