10 Heroes Who Impacted Me

These are 10 celebrities who impacted me from my childhood.

1) Amitabh Bachchan, for his larger than life presence that totally took over and twisted our lives into knots - from bell bottoms to brooding faces, long hair to dancing.

2) Socrates, the Brazilian football player, for his brooding presence, his stylish play.

3) Sunil Gavaskar, for bringing a sense of excellence, a sense of wanting to beyond, a sense of defiance and keeping up with the best.

4) Kapil Dev, for being himself and expressing himself and impacting the world with all that he did.

5) M.L. Jaisimha, for sheer style that none can match ever.

6) M.K. Gandhi, for his amazing life and conviction of thought.

7) David Gower, for being all class.

8) Wodehouse, for being able to write like that.

9) Bruce Lee, for infusing life, courage, power, speed and aggression into us.

10) Sean Connery, for playing James Bond so well.
