Back to you ...


Heard a lot from my collection of rock over the past few days, a lot of Jazz and tried a bit of Blues too. Liked it, luved some of them, but in the end, felt that they missed something ...


The completeness, the magic, the melody ...the Soul .....

Am back to you Rahman ......
The way you weave your magic, I don't think anybody else can. The pure depth in your music cannot be compared to and cannot be matched ....


Have been Hearing Dil Se (the title song) in a loop .....and each time I hear something new in it ...last I heard it it was a strange tune ..that I even though plays on and on during the course of the whole song, is prominent only at the fag end of the song when the rest of music has almost ceased. I think that Rahman now is at that level where he plays with music and musical instruments and just thinks, what next should I create magic with :-).
Good for people like me though ......I live and I breathe his music ....


Saw some people posting requests to rate songs of Rahman and make it number 1 etc. A humble request to such folks - please do not diminsh the greatness of this man by such talk. His music, his magic and his greatness are best represented by his humility, his silence with words and letting his music do the talking ....Do we really need to vote and rank and try to elevate him by such petty things ...feel these are just mere writings and mere rubbush ...

I know that you folks really adore Rahman's music but I fell that if u really respect and adore this Rahman and his music - just hear his music, yes write appreciative posts and discuss that ...that ought to be it ....

Rahman is much above all this ...he is at a place where other music directors, I feel can only dream of ...IMHO, there is no comparison ...and IMHO, rankings, ratings if such a thing exists all begin at no. 2 ...at least for me ...they will always be like that ....

This is from my Dil Se ..... :-)

Gud one that. Grandpa ..ha ha ..

my count of Rahman converts is around 4-5 currently though I am constantly on the prowl for more...

Remember one incident when I had been to the Stanford event to meet Rahman, there was one old Amru (phoren guy) who went up and spoke about Rahman - he said that he was not into music (any sort of..that is) but Rahman's music has opened up another world ...

Yes it is another world ...I feel ...

hv fun ....
