It was in 2009, February he made a chill in every Indian’s bone by holding two academy awards in hand & with his most innocent face he expressed his feelings as ‘Ella Pughazhum Iraivanukke’ (Every praise to Almighty!). And today he is completing another round. Happy Birthday to the most admirable person in my life. Allah Rakha Rahman.
You may not know me. I may go stupidly emotional while writing this, and the truth is I always finds the best emotions in your music. I am a human like every one else, who calls herself as Rahmaniac. A girl who born in the year on which you made the debut as music director in Yodha. A girl who grown up with your music. Who can define every happiness in Chinna Chinna Aasai, who always dance for Pappu can’t dance saala, who always finds love in Dil se re. A whole life tributes to your music. If there is something which made me passionate on music, which made me sing and sing; its all those magical notes from you. Often I dream about sitting in front of a piano & trying to play your notes. Often I cried at nights hearing your songs. I saluted for Maa Tujhe Salam. You are the genious in music. A person who can create heaven through notes. Someone who made me reach God with the Khawalis. My Inspiration. You are one among them who shows how true legend is. How creative the World is. How wonderful music is. Roja.. Dil se.. Kannathil Muthamittal.. Rockstar.. Highway.. OKK till Tamasha, couldn’t think about you without the respect. May your legendary flourish through the whole world. May you live another decades to make wonders again & again.. May your music makes every heart soulful.. With tears.. smile..laugh & happiness wishing you a very happy Birthday. You are my inspiration & your music was my companion at every ups & downs.. Really indebted for you. The King of Music. Stay Blessed!!
What’s the New Year plan? was a question I had been hearing for the past one week & to say, I was clueless!! Our old room mates joined us on the day before to spend the last day of year together and I was planning a calm and quiet New Year with them. I will cook something special and we can spend the whole night talking talking & talking. Really, that was our plan.
But yesterday, my best friend called me by the end of my office hour and I had to go with him on duty to find a perfect loafers for him. It was such a simple purchase to all of us but not for him. We ran from Adidas to Hush Puppies to Bata & he wasn’t satisfied with any. That’s him & I was helpless.My watch turned fast & the overcrowded billing counter made it even worse. I hate shopping malls. By the time I reached my apartment, my people were planning plans. New Year Plans! 😉 There was fire works scheduled in the nearby mall at midnight. Let’s go there! Let’s roam around! Let’s go somewhere else. They five people clashed with their own wishes & at the end I put forward my idea. Let’s go to church! The Holy Mass! Yes.. That’s it. There was smiles on my favorite faces & we fixed the deal. Let’s start another year in front of God! 🙂 Right after my cooking session we had our delicious special dinner (Ghee rice, Chicken curry, Pudhina Chutney & Vegetable Salad). At sharp 11.45 pm we kick started our bikes & vroom. We parked and moved through the crowd & reached the church door. I turned back to sky and saw the moon smiling at us. Smiles! There are times when silence speak among us. We girls! That was the moment. We entered and kneeled down with smiles on our face. Closed our eyes & the bells rang. That’s it. We bowed. Starting of another year with my girls. 🙂 Oh sorry! I think Ladies.. ❤ We held each other & whispered Happy New Year in ears. Warm hugs! Sweet kisses & pleasant smiles! 🙂 A new book of 366 pages is open in front of me! New paths & new destinations. Yet another journey!
Routines were usual. I woke up after 4 hours sleep and headed to kitchen realizing that m the only one working today & all other at home have no office. I bid adieu to two of my old ones & truly I don’t want them to leave. My ipod is still playing ‘Thousand Years’ by Christina Perri like yesterday & my work station is same as yesterday. But still..
A new start is always new.. Time to meet new people.. Love the old ones much better..Let things go.. 🙂
Thank You for being a part of my life still now! Every moment gives a lesson! And yeah, m alive this moment! Just live it to the fullest. 🙂
Yes! New Year is special! ❤
Praying for peace all over the world & happiness every where!!
Happy New Year to all. 🙂
Have a wonderful & blissful year ahead!!
