Thank you, Rahman!

Dear Rahman,

As you complete 20 years of composing music for films, I would like to thank you yet again for continuing to giving us such blissful and soul-stirring music that only you can. 20 years is no short time period and to me, from the carefree days of childhood to the big moment of embracing motherhood, it has always been your music which has been an important part of my life, a great companion all through.

Among innumerable happy memories associated with your music, THE most special moment happened last year. As I saw my just-born teeny-weeny baby lying next to me and sombal muruchufying the very first time, it was these beautiful lines made all the more beautiful by your music and voice that echoed through my mind:

malare sombal muritthu ezhugave
kuzhandai vizhikaTTume thaayin kadha kadhappil
ulagam vidiyaTTume piLLayin siru mudhal sirippil

Thank you for making the special moments of my life even more special and aiding me in tough times through your music.

As I often say, I am fortunate that I am able to experience your music. Here’s to more and more special songs from you! Proud to be your fan! Thank you, Rahman!

    This post was written on my birthday and I’m really grinning around to see that it’s about my favourite composer too. But tell you what? I think the man sort of insulted his works like Roja and Bombay when he received the academy award for Slumdog. Anyway…

    Since you’re quite a keen blogger, I was hoping that you’d want to be part of the India Is Global Photography Challenge 2012. All you need to do is go through and blog about it. By doing so, in words or pictures, you’ll help our team map India visually- through your experiences! Add the essence of what you feel about India, let your readers know about this global initiative and help us showcase India at its best!

    Of course it’s got its benefits, like India Is goodie bags! Do participate in this initiative, and claim yours.

    Looking forward to you joining us!
