Wishing A.R.Rahman a very happy birthday! 🙂
As I was scrolling through the December Season schedule for the nth time about a week or so back thinking with a sigh that the Season was going to end soon what with Sanjay’s last concert of the Season being on Jan 5th, it dawned on me that the next day was Rahman’s birthday! (Pardon me for mentioning about the Season yet again! But I have been obsessed with Carnatic music big time during the last one month that these days, no conversation seems to happen without a mention of it happening!) Can there be a better way to celebrate Rahman’s birthday than listening to your favourite Rahman’s songs and losing yourself in the man’s music? 🙂 And that too when you are listening to the songs after quite sometime, I can’t tell you how happy it feels!
To me, listening to a Rahman’s song isn’t just about enjoying the music, experiencing the magic of Rahman’s music and marveling at how he comes up with such amazing compositions alone. Considering the fact that Rahman’s songs have been the ones I have grown up listening to, there are a whole lot of memories associated with quite a lot of songs. The memories range from something as mundane as me eating a Diary Milk when I was listening to some song to some momentous one like me celebrating the successful completion of some work listening to a song. Last year, during what was one of the worst weeks, Kabhi Kabhi Aditi really worked wonders for me. With each passing day, there are only a lot more memories getting added to all those wonderful songs. And with Rahman giving us more and more awesome songs, Rahman’s music continues to fascinate me more and more. 🙂 Thank you, Rahman!
Wishing Rahman a very happy birthday once again!
