Last year, a look at the same list cracked us up as the top 'How to' query on Google India was 'how to take a screenshot.'

Google's top India trends throw up some interesting information about the way the country consumes internet and what concerns Indian netizens the most.

A look at Google's 'Year in Search' for India shows that Indians grappled with how to send stickers to other contacts on WhatsApp, making it the top 'How to' query on Google search in India. 

Scroll further down the list and one learns that Indian netizens also googled how to link Aadhaar with mobile number, how to make a rangoli, how to port a mobile number and how to invest in bitcoin.

The previous year, Prabhas starer Bahubali-2 dominated the search list in India. 7 out of top 10 overall searches in the country were movie-based, reinstating India's love for masala cinema.

Ironically, this year, just one movie-based search made to the top Google searches in India -- superstar Rajini and Akshay Kumar starrer 'Robot 2.0'. 

Interestingly, five out of ten top overall Google searches  in India were sports-related. While FIFA World Cup 2018 topped the list, IPL was the third top searched topic in India. Karnataka election results made to the list, five-state Assembly polls did not.  

Google's global 'Year in Search' list for 2018 included FIFA World Cup, natural disasters, a royal wedding and many more.
