Katrina Kaif rubs shoulders with railway reservation sites, and Genelia ‘Jaane Tu’ D’Souza battles it out with the Sixth pay commission. Seems like Indians in 2008 got the perfect mix of work and play. ‘How to’ searches told a completely different story though. ‘How to reduce weight’ and ‘how to kiss’ were searched more often than ‘How to build a website’. But then, we know that already, don’t we? And isn’t too much time at a workstation building websites the primary reason why we are overweight and need to consequently kiss your way to a woman’s heart?
