ARR's Oscar nominations
Check this out.
Law of averages had to catch up with India! We desperately needed this tonic of happiness. And who else to provide it to us than Allah Rakha Rahman. Let me just taste this moment. It’s so wonderful. I am in no mood to make a technical evaluation of whether he will win or not but look at the “Original Song” category he has two out of the three nominations! Its too much for me to take now. Let me first close my mouth!

PS: This is my 300th post. Somehow I waited and waited and waited till I posted this and didn’t know what I was waiting for. Now we know, right?!

The Globe sees A R Rahman

And this:

It was just a matter of time. If you followed the American press you would have predicted this easily. But for me, I was still doubtful because I thought ‘Water‘ was good enough for an Oscar nomination atleast. Anyway, here we are today. While the press is glossing over the first Indian to be presenting an award at the Golden Globe awards ceremony, here we have a fellow Indian citizen winning one. You know who means business!

And I hope the comparisons of ARR with the other Indian music directors stop now atleast. I am in this mood to take these infinite potshots today! Let me let that instinct be for now…

This is my moment. This is every Indian’s moment. Let’s celebrate!

a-Satyam: Do we really know?

I am sure by now you are innundated with mails and news reports about how and what Ramalinga Raju did to Satyam. Of course he built it up from 0 to 50,000 employees but he also has put all of their careers into serious uncertainty. Do you appreciate this man for having built an organization so far or just plainly accuse him of fraud for his confession as the standard reaction has been? As far as I am concerned, I am still reeling under shock.

Belated wishes

To all:
For a Happy New Year!

To Rahman:
On his birthday! Hoping that this is the year that people actually recognize his talent!
