AR Rahman – The New Dawn of Music
AR Rahman

Before I start, I would like to ask you one question. If a room has two pillars and one break down would that room be that strong, that it was earlier with two pillars?

Do you know that our parents are our pillars who enable us to bear any storm of our life? Today, I am going to write about a legendary musician who lost his one pillar at an early age. Inspire of facing all the difficulties of life, he came out with winning edge and put his mark over the generation.

Yes, buddy, you guessed it right!! He is none other but the Oscar Awardee, Indian musician AR Rahman. He was born in Chennai on Jan 6, 1967. His father worked as a composer and a conductor and passed away at an early age. Without his father, his life was so miserable.

He joined a troupe of famous South Indian composer Ilaiyaraaja at an early age of 11 years. He graduated from Trinity College at Oxford University, with a degree in Western Classical Music. It depicts that his world-class talent has deep roots.  

He composed music for a movie “Raaja” in 1991, and it was Rahman’s first break which is also known as his Lucky Break. Because the music of this movie turned out to be a sizzling sensation. People started appreciating his work and loved it so much. And from there, he never headed back.

He has continued providing brilliant stuff. Some of his most famous compositions are “Roja Janeman” from movie “Roja”, “Nahin Samne” from movie “Taal”, “Ai Ajnabi” from the movie “Dil se” and the list is endless and infinite…

He recently shared his new song, that is close to the heart of every “Avengers” movie fan, and that the “Avengers Anthem” that’s for the latest Avengers movie “Avengers Endgame”.

He is not so good in Hindi, but still, he is an iconic musician for Hindi movies as he believes that nothing is beyond you if you are damn serious to achieve it.

When you do good work and continue providing enthralling stuff to the people, that I think AR Rahman has done in a really good way, it never goes in vain. Same happened with this new trendsetter artist, Rehman has been awarded for his many high achievements.
