As we set ourselves to consign another year to its final resting place, it is almost an awakening to note that the next couple of months mark the beginning of not just a new year, but a new decade. We’re older, surely, though not necessarily wiser; we have witnessed change to be wrought to ourselves and our surroundings in a way that only the passage of time can. It would be fitting, thus, to pause and reflect on the past ten years, which — though they seemed to have sped away almost in a trice — were marked by happenings of historic import. Here we look at events that defined the decade of 2010-2019 for Indians — from the 2011 World Cup win to the abrogation of Article 370, to the Supreme Court judgement (a verdict to end all verdicts?) in the century-old Ayodhya dispute.
