The year 2010 was the year during which many things have changed. If we talk about 10 years ago, very fewer people were active on social media like Facebook and most of them used to carry flip phones unlike smartphones today. Now, it’s been more than a decade, many things have taken the turn and have changed the road. We can see huge progress in things such as equal rights, mental health, and spiritual awareness. Don’t take me wrong, but we still have many things to work upon but we also can’t leave incredible things that have been accomplished in the past decade and the people who were behind it. 2010 was the year of most influential and inspiring people who have shaped the whole world over the last 10 years.
