There I was screaming on my Radio show the moment it happened. I was absolutely sure He would bring it home, was just wondering whether it would be one or two.
I wasn't nervous, tense or whatever else everyone asked. I was not even waiting with bated breath. I was cocksure and when it happened it was a wish of all of us that came true. It cannot be otherwise. Thats all
Since morning I, like a lot of other singers have been deluged with calls for video and sound bytes from various Radio stations and News Channels. His winning two Oscar awards has put all the musicians and singers working with him on air expressing how we felt. Especially those from Chennai. As far as I know CNN IBN and NDTV have been featuring a lot of us from here.
Rahman Sir was bound to bring it home, probably it was just a matter of time. And again, its just a matter of time before he wins the maximum in that too, the way he has established records with Indian awards of having set a record of winning the maximum, I know that's a fact with the Filmfare.
This is definitely one of the beginning stages for the ear drums of the entire world as long as sir's music is concerned. Just about the beginning.
