AR Rahman in Music Dot Net


Today my post in Music Dot Net is about my one and only favorite music director Doctorate AR Rahman. He is the only guy who won the Oscar's and came to India with big smile. Yesterday was another important day in AR Rahman's life, he has been conferred an Honorary Doctorate by a leading UK university (London). The Vice Chancellor of the Middlesex University in Hendon in London, Professor Michael Driscoll presented the Honorary Degree on Rahman.

After receiving the honour, Rahman said "It is an enormous honour to belong to this great seat of learning". He also said, "My journey as a musician started at the age of nine and I see music as a way to connect to spirituality and embrace it. Music touches people and breaks down barriers, creating harmony in troubled times. This has always been my philosophy".

After winning two Oscar Academy Awards for the music of hit film "Slumdog Millionaire", he also signed a Memorandum of Understanding between his K M Music Conservatory in Chennai and the University. Rahman explained the background to the MOU: "We looked at lots of universities but felt Middlesex had the right, friendly vibe as well as great history". May this work will rock too.... :)

Say "Jai HO" to AR and hear latest news in Music Dot Net :)
