Oscar winner ARR

A long journey ....its is been to get to that ...a wonderful sight this.
For years now - 17 to be precise - from the time of Roja, Gentleman, Thiruda Thiruda, many a crazy Rahmaniac has been following a musical messiah who goes by the name A R Rahman. The journey, an incredible one at that hasn't been easy - not for the man ...and neither for fans like me.

-Being scoffed at for being as crazy about anybody - the way I have been about ARR's music
-Being scolded by Dad for spending money on his albums
-Having to fight/reason out with people who never understand not just this man's music but also failed to understand the greater cause he represents
-From countless and mostly pointless arguments on messageboards, blogs etc

Its been a long journey - a wonderful journey though where we fans have enjoyed every little bit of magic created by this wonderful music composer and an even greater human being.

I stopped arguing, trying to make peoplem understand ARR's magic some years ago - as I look at it - its pointless and in any case, its their loss.

Today - there cannot be a person as happy as a true Rahmaniac like me. An Oscar (or 2 ) really does not increase or decrease our admiration for ARR. It doesn't change anything for us (except that we are the happiest folks on earth :-)). It sure would mean a lot to ARR - all the struggles, all the criticisms, sarcasms and hurdles he has had to overcome to reach the pinnacles of this music world - this is a true reward for all of that.

So heres saluting, probably the greatest ever musician in this world - at least in my world and probably in every Rahmaniac's world.

Hats off to you SIR. Hats of to you ARR.
