Gosh, was 2005 an eventful year or what!

A minister lost his job; Bollywood's biggest icon was in hospital; the cricket captain got sacked after an ugly spat with the coach; an earthquake devastated Kashmir… the list is endless.

These were only some of the major headlines from 2005. Apart from all of that, we had some brilliant features, columns, interviews.

Our most popular stories these last 12 months cover tremors in Maharashtra, two celebrity deaths, the terrorist attack in Ayodhya.

And, there was one feature on sex in the Top 10, affirming the online belief that sex always sells.
