I’ve written this somewhere here – not to sound elitist but some people are more wonderful than the rest. The mystical elements of the universe that commoners cannot connect to, speak to these chosen ones. And they transmit those surreal discourse to the world through art.
Rahman sure is one of them, as he has said it himself that music is his spiritual salvation. I wonder if he realizes that his music is a lot of people’s spiritual salvation. I cannot count the number of times I’ve felt that God speaks through his music.
I do not like to believe that the level of artistic intellect that AR Rahman displays is anything human. Perhaps the cosmic energies of the world we live in choose some people to flow through. He certainly is one prominent channel. And this is a small, unnoticeable tribute to the Godsend.
