Jai Ho AR Rahman
It has been a tough job identifying good news. In these times, it is great to see AR Rahman getting accolades and getting three nominations for the Oscars. Having had the advantage of listening to Rahman in Tamil as well as Hindi, all one can say is that this guy is amazing. He makes old composers look like mere arrangers. Whilst I have not yet seen the film Slumdog Millionaires, I have heard the songs. Must say that Rahman has better compositions by the dozen. We certainly do hope that he gets an Oscar or three!! Will keep our attention diverted from the small stuff like corporate frauds and political shennanigans.
