Valentine's Fun Time

A very Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
Hope the sweet magic of this special day keeps running high for centuries to follow..

This time I’m trying to comprehend my blog readers by presenting an interesting survey..in an attempt to know their likes in the opposite gender..Let’s give this survey a name..
Ok sounding smthing like MTV’s opinion poll:

Welcome to my “Youth Icon Survey”..

Since Valentine’s Day falls on 14th, when 2 individual entities luv to call themselves as one, let’s try to figure out who’re the 7 most liked icons in our mind..

Feel free to take any names..even if they’re the ones not known to others..
But preferably in the opposite gender..
This’ll help maintain the charm of the Valentine’s Day !!

To elucidate my poll further, I’ll start with my top 7 favorite icons, along with a concise description, to help others know what I like in them.

I sincerely request everyone not to give any anonymous comments, as half the glamour is already lost when readers don’t get to know who this interesting personality is..!











1. Russell Crowe:

My first vote goes to our unbeatable Oscar winner, Russell Crowe..There can be no doubts about his caliber or commitment..
His breathtaking performances in “Gladiator” and “A Beautiful Mind” have taken my heart away..!
His movies exhibit so much of the complex jargon going inside his mind to titillate anyone.












2. Richard Quest:


My second vote goes for CNN anchor, Richard Quest for his undeniable narrative vigor.
He makes every news sound so fascinating to our ears, be it the US elections or some business travel details.
Catch him on his blog, and I’m sure you won’t be able to visit it just once.!

3. Harsha Bhogle:


My third vote goes to the excellent product of India’s IIMA, Harsha Bhogle.
His outstanding commentary was one of the reasons I started watching cricket.
I’ve also been influenced by his columns in the Indian Express.
When asked about his keys to success, he believes that it is important to surround yourself with people who’re better than you.









4. Will Smith:

At the 4th place, I’ve our Hollywood’s charismatic & eclectic hero, Will Smith.
The “Date-Doctor” was at the best of his humor in “Hitch”.

After seeing his “Pursuit of Happyness”, I was left speechless..
He has surely reached the zenith of his career..













5. Dr. Sanjay Gupta:



My fifth vote goes to the famous neurosurgeon and CNN journalist Dr. Sanjay Gupta. Surprisingly, liking is also governed by the fact that he was born in India and we share a common surname..).
The way a man of medicine has made his mark on the television is really astonishing.
How heartily he helped 5-year old “Yossif” recover from severe burn injuries, was very touching..










6. Stephan Sacker:






My sixth vote goes to the BBC’s HARDtalk anchor Stephen Sacker.
I find it too difficult to switch channels when he’s around ..)
I like the strategy with which he attacks the other person to spill out the truth..
The amazing part is that the interviewee does not really feel offended with his mixed dose of appreciative n pugnacious attitude.!










7. Roger Federer:


At the 7th place, I’ve our tennis champ Roger Federer.
We share the same birth year, and probably nothing else.!
I lke the way he pursues his passion so madly, and how this Swiss man has top-seeded the old tennis big champs..

Quoting his words:
"With all the success I've had over the last few years now, it's really become no problem for me to handle it, and actually understand why I've lost, and sort of explain it to myself and then move on."


Well, my list has come to an end..Now it’s time for my dear blog readers to express their likes..Please don’t be a silent reader this time..I too have a desire to know my dear blogging friends just like you get to know me ~

Happy Valentine's Day!!
