Hi five of me...

Recently I came across a hubpage by subseven titled “The Top 5 Must See Tourist Places in Chhattisgarh, India”. This inspired me to think of my favourite five – places, people, acts and deeds!

I put mind to rest, and gave five minutes to think of all the good things that had happened to me.

The first thing that strikes me was that being a Muslim, I must first fulfil the 5-obligatory duties. Islam stands on five pillars...

  1. Testify Allah’s oneness and Muhammad (PBUH) as His prophet
  2. Pray five times a day
  3. Fast during the Islamic month of Ramadan
  4. Pay zakat annually
  5. Offer pilgrimage to Mecca on Hajj at least once in a life time.

Here are other, Top 5 things that I can relate to in my life. And of course I invite you to add your Top Five in the space provided at the end of this HubPage (Click here to go there directly)

Top Five Actors (Hindi)

Amitabh - Indian Actor of the Century
Amitabh - Indian Actor of the Century

I grow up watching movies starring Dilip Kumar. If the history of Indian cinema is written, then there would history before Dilip Kumar and after Dilip Kumar. Most new comers would copy Dilip Saab’s style of dialogue delivery and acting.

Some years later, Zanjeer happened. I loved Amitabh acchan. His movies 'Amar Akbar Anthony' is iconic movie. 'Deewar', 'Don' are all some of his excellent movies. Aamir Khan is another hero I admire for his choice of films and the way he promotes them. His last movie 'PK' was biggest blockbuster in Hindi films.

Salaam Khan is another actor. He is mass hero, portraying larger than life image. I am fond of his action films like 'Dabaang', 'Wanted'. He started as a romantic hero in movies and after his hugely successful movie 'Wanted', turn action hero. His latest movie 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' turn out to very successful and super duper hit movies.

And yes to make it 5, Govinda is one of my favorite. My family hate him. So are most of my friends. But still I love and his movies.

  1. Dilip Kumar
  2. Amitabh Bacchan
  3. Aamir Khan
  4. Salman Khan
  5. (yes, yes) Govinda

  1. Rajnikant
  2. Vijay
  3. Surya
  4. Kamal Hasan
  5. Mahesh Babu
