YearEnder2018: Watch What We Saw as News18.com Brings You the Best Videos of 2018
As the year winds to a close, News18.com brings to you the best of videos of the year.

2018 has been a busy year, with widespread farmer protests, Adivasi movements, increasing conversations about gender and the environment. As the year winds to a close, News18.com brings to you the best of year.

An Adivasi Uprising 

News18 tracked the Adivasi 'Patthargarhi' movement for sovereignty that has swept across central India. In hundreds of 'Patthargarhi' villages, across several states in India, MPs, MLAs, police and state IDs like voter cards and Aadhaar aren't welcomed anymore.

India's Balochistan Freedom Movement Explained

Bilochpura, a sleepy village in UP's Baghpat district has found itself on the map of the Balochistan Freedom Movement.

Why Farmers are Angry With Jewar Airport Land Acquisition

Authorities speak of a relatively smooth land acquisition process for the proposed international airport in Jewar, 60 kilometres from Noida, with over 75 per cent of farmers signing the consent forms. Many, though, say they only gave consent for the airport project and not the compensation offered.

Inside the World of Hindutva Pop

They want to set up ‘Baba ka Mandir’ in Pakistan, they want you to use your muscle power to remove Babar’s name from history, they want you to know that if you live in India, you have to say ‘Vande Mataram’ and if you are visiting a temple, they want you to dance ‘kamar hilake’. Welcome to the world of desi pop stars who are on a mission to spread their words of wisdom through songs on Hinduism, nationalism and cow politics. But it’s with a bit of a twist, the songs are accompanied by what they call-- ‘DJ music’. Hindutva Pop's most celebrated artists include Laxmi Dubey, Akshara Singh, Ritesh Pandey, and Dinesh Lal.

The Infamous Mountains of India's Capital

We have managed to create mountains in Delhi! Yes, mountains of trash. With Delhi producing more than 10,000 tonnes of waste daily, these mountains were bound to take shape. These Mountains stand tall. They are a testimony of our failed waste management system and pose hard questions about our future plans. Will we find a solution? Or will continue to drown in waste.

Walking with the Bakarwals

Gender Fluidity - How Durga Gowde Chooses Gender Everyday

Durga Gawde, also known as Shakti, is a gender-fluid individual who defies preconceived gender norms and is set to educate the world about why gender shouldn't exist at all. On some days, Durga can be sporting a highly contoured face with a beard while on some days, you’d see the 25-year-old being very graceful and feminine. This pride month, let's look beyond what we understand as predefined binary genders. The scrapping of section 377 on 6th September 2018 will hopefully usher in a new era of rights for the LGBTQ community. Watch the video to get to know her better.

Bollywood's Lessons on Dosti this Friendship Day

Friendship in Bollywood has been one of the most popular and common emotion. The sacred bond has been made legendary by characters, be it the Jai-Veeru of Sholay or the trio in Dil Chahta Hai. While most of the known friendship in Hindi cinema has been about supporting each other and being each other's back from the start to the end, there are few films where friendships teach us some valuable lessons. On this Friendship Day, we bring to you a trip down the memory lane.

Humanity’s Space Story | 60 Years in Space

Human beings have been fascinated by space since times immemorial but it’s been only 60 years since we started exploring space for ourselves.
