From just another Rahman fan to a Rahmaniac – The journey

Warning: The longest-ever post in this blog follows! Read it if you have the time and patience.

Initially when I thought about what to write to mark the 15 years of completion of A R Rahman in the world of films, I couldn’t think of any specific aspect to focus on.

Good Morning folks!

Santhosha KaNNeerey/ Dil Se Re

I have always liked Santhosha kaNNeerey more than Dil Se Re. Maybe it’s because I listened to the Tamil version first. Anyway, I love the lyrics of both the songs (I like the words Santhosha KaNNeerey itself). What great lyrics that suits the mood of the song so beautifully!

The magic of A R Rahman

I recently transferred some of my favourite songs that I haven’t listened to for quite sometime, to my mobile. So, I have almost stopped listening to radio now. The next three paras of this post is what I typed in my mobile as a message when I was travelling home from work after I pressed the play button in the music player with the random option turned on. 🙂

Shauk Hai

I am sure once you start listening to this song, you won’t have the heart to stop listening to it. 😉
