Legacy – The Name is ARR

 

“Elaa pugazhum Iraivanuke”

He said while receiving his awards, from the hands of legends, who were his fans.

 

Allah-Rakha Rahman, fondly called and honored by the name  “Mozart of Madras”, walks down the stairs and settles in his chair with a complete smile on his face.

 

The next day, headlines erupt up to the nation’s ears- “AR Rahman bags 2 Oscars for Slumdog Millionaire “.

 

A music playlist is never complete without a  song of his being played . Be it “Urvasi” or “Thalli pogathey“, soulfulness is always achieved in 5-6 mins, during which the thoughts of completing records, assignments, and attendance shortfalls, do not swarm upon us.

 

The legacy we see today, has a 25 year old past. As a result we got to recognize him, as he grew up from the beats of advertisements to movies like ‘Chekka chivandha vaanam’, ‘Mersal’ , the list goes on.

 

Thanks to director Mani Ratnam for introducing this saint to us, and for rejuvenating us at hard times.

 

Be it a romantic genre or a commercial he gives his best, so that your whims and odds are nullified. .

 

We can’t see even a slightest speck of pride in his speech or attitude. A humble smile is always present in his silent face.

 

Wake up, AR Rahman, Sleep, Repeat.
