At the end of an exhausting day, here I am wide awake after a night nap! I look at the clock. See it turn 12 midnight here in Singapore and that’s when I remember it is Rahman’s birthday today!
The one Rahman’s song that I have been listening to the last few days is Humma Humma from OK Jaanu. While the memory of me and my sister listening to Andha Arabic Kadaloram as children and enjoying it very much is still vivid in my mind, today seeing my little one who is not even 2 years old sing ‘Ammaa’ mazhalayaa and dance away following the steps taught by his sister brings back those memories afresh to my mind. My kids are loving this foot-tapping remix as well as the original Andha Arabic Kadaloram, my most favourite song from Bombay. I feel happy seeing Rahman’s music appeal so much to the gen-next too.
Rahman, your music has always been an instant energy-booster to me. And it has always been there with me through all the ups and downs of my life. Happy Birthday, Rahman!
