In a country where cricket is almost like religion, the top trends on Facebook data for the year 2015 placed Narendra Modi, E-Commerce, Abdul Kalam, Baahubali, Salman Khan and Nepal earthquake above IPL cricket matches. Modi is the top newsmakers of the country and hence the most searched topic on Facebook.
Baahubali being on the fourth position in the list, ahead of Salman Khan and IPL matches speaks volumes on how the breathtaking 3D scenes of the magnum opus have made the entire country go gaga over the exceptional talent of a regional film maker Rajamouli, who can deliver a international standard movie with a budget which is a peanut budget according to international standards.
It’s no surprise that Abdul Kalam beats films and cricket and placed him in the third position in the most searched list. When the Nation lost this great person, it was like people thought somebody from our family left us forever. Entire Nation’s respect for the former President of India poured in through different channels. A natural calamity like Nepal earthquake in the list shows how people were concerned and empathetic.
