There are so many amazing moments like these in almost every ARR’s song which have something special in them that makes you want to listen to those again and again and again! You may start listening to a song on a loop for just one particular moment which fascinated you the most initially, only to later discover that every moment of the song has the same magic in it! The initial listening experience of each and every song of Rahman itself is so wonderful! Thank you, Rahman, & wish you a very happy birthday! 🙂 Looking forward to being bowled over by the music of Vinnai Thaandi Varuvaaya & Raavan!
