Default India's top 50 Roads?

I was just wondering - which 50 roads would qualify as Driver delights? Meaning - they have good surface, signs, moderate to light traffic, some good corners...etc

I have driven mostly in South India, so really cant comment on the roads north of the vindhyas.
Given below is a list of good roads I've driven so far
1. Hubli - Ankola highway - The best road I have driven in so far. I dont remember if it is a national or state highway, but I do know the road was excellent - just 2 lanes that climbed from Ankola on the coast to Hubli - 130 odd Kms of pure bliss. Meandering through a forested region (read no people), this was one heck of a road - superb surface, lots of corners with good visibility and very light traffic.

2. Hassan - Belur - state highway
3. Chennai - Pondicherry - ECR

Please add to the list. Could be of use to one of us - I remember taking a different route on the way back from Goa just to experience the Ankola Hubli road.
