1. Taxis are just a click away.

Gone are the days when taxis ‘rejected’ you and refused to go to your destination. Thanks to Uber and Ola, our rides back home are now just a click away. However, we still wonder if there'll be an Uber for autos. Or is that too much to ask for?


2. Give people a second chance. Arvind Kejriwal got one.

2015 was one lucky year for Arvind Kejriwal. The AAP leader became the Chief Minister of Delhi and pledged to be the ‘sabka CM’ for five years, unlike his previous 49-day stint. Kejriwal’s story is a great example of how people who deserve a second chance, get one.

3. Accept defeat graciously.

So what if we didn’t win the world cup this year? We definitely learnt a thing or two from our defeat. Our captain MS Dhoni taught us how to graciously take defeat in our stride. He respected the strong rivals and admitted the mistakes we made, that cost us a world cup.

4. It’s your choice to reject what is wrong.

Deepika Padukone’s ‘My Choice’ video was a great example of how intelligent the audience on social media is. The video, that spoke about women empowerment, was far from it and did not advocate gender equality. Rightly so, it was criticised and the audience did not buy the message blindly just because it featured a superstar.

5. Keep your eating preferences a secret so that the state doesn’t ban it.

Meat ban, beef ban, Maggi ban - 2015 was the year of bans. It questioned our choices and also took away our favourite food items from the market. In light of the countless incidents of curbs on freedom, it’s now time to quietly relish a dish in a quiet restaurant without letting the state know there is a significant demand for it. Else be ready to say goodbye to pork belly.

6. Don’t go watch a movie with high expectations.

If you’ve bought a ticket to a Rohit Shetty film, you’ve lost the right to complain how bad the movie was. What were you expecting? Rohit Shetty turning into Spielberg and showing a full-fledged war instead of cars toppling over each other? Getting pissed off about how bad a movie was is pointless. Start making wiser choices instead!

7. Go easy on the humour in public.

Whether it's AIB, or any stand-up comedian booed for cracking ‘vulgar’ jokes, people here lack a sense of humour. So if you’re thinking of being a wise-ass and cracking a joke at a shaadi or to a ‘sanskaari’ audience, then we advise you not to. Because the odds are stacked against you, and your uncles and aunts might roll their eyes and think you’re a big pervert.

8. Think before you speak, especially if you’re a celebrity.

See what happened to the Khans. If you utter a single word without thinking, stardom is not going to help. Instead, it’s going to make things worse. So if you don’t want your effigies to be burnt, keep your opinions to yourself.

9. Never judge people according to their clothes.

If you had seen the ladies in this picture, you would have called them aunties. However, they're actually the rockstars of ISRO who worked really hard and rocketed India into space. Attire has got nothing to do with attitude. Even Mark Zuckerberg will agree.

10. Talent has no race.

Sundar Pichai stole the year by becoming the CEO of internet giant Google. If you think you’re too far off from achieving your goals, then think about this man who came from a middle class family in Chennai and rose to the top rank at Google.

11. Pay attention to the climate.

Climate is going to be a serious issue in 2016. We cannot afford another flood situation like Chennai or another shattering earthquake like Nepal. It’s time to take responsibility for our surroundings by reducing carbon footprints.
