Additionally, we even managed to give attention to the attention-seeking, wannabe nudists like Poonam Pandey who has still left most ogling men on the internet wondering if it's better to wait for her to strip or take the easier route and head for Sunny Leone.
Google's recently revealed list of the top ten most-searched people in India shows that there are no surprise entries on the list. It also shows that we like our populist figures and are intrigued still by Salman's latest court cases, Anna's distaste for alcoholics and Priyanka's latest love interests.
The only two non-Indians (well that is if we assume Katrina to be our own now) to cut in the list are Justin Beiber and Steve Jobs.
One can understand the amount of interest Jobs would generate this year, what with him possibly dining with Gadhafi in the after-life and all, but Beiber's entry is still a mystery, as his apparent gender to many males on the net.
The one to top the list is Katrina. We do certainly love our pretty faces on screen – be it the big screen or our patchy 14-inch monitors.
Probably her old love interest in Salman helped push the both of them on the top of the chart... Hey! I am not Google, I don't have all the answers, I can only speculate.
Anna Hazare and his prolonged fast for a strong Lokpal bill saw him separate Katrina and Salman, if only by one small number.
The less glamorous looking activist was the second-most searched face on the Indian-corner of Google.
People starved, waved flags, sang songs and did more things imaginable for the ex-Army veteran than they probably would do for Katrina. Not that I can rule that possibility out.
His crusade for a strong Lokpal bill is still going strong and reaching new highs, as is our home electricity bills.
