For those who don't know,here's some thing that'll make u green wid envy.
I attended the Times of India sponsored A.R.Rahman concert!There were more than 50,000 people in attendance.The main reason being that we all got free passes.
It's a gr8 way for the TOI to start their activities in chennai.I'm sure they'll kick Hindu out in a couple of years.The amount of info in the paper makes me glued to it for almost and hour.
Coming back to the concert,well, it blowed me off my feet.Myself along with 8 other college mates set the ground on fire(if not the stage).All the hits of A.R.Rahman over the years were performed by leading singers like Shankar Mahadevan,Hariharan,Naresh Iyer,Madhushri,Chinmayi,Blaaze,etc.Also on the drums was none other than the flamboyant Sivamani.
The show started with a bang with the arrival of rahman on the stage with the song "Thalapathy" from ATM.The response from the audience was deafening.The atmosphere was energetic and the environment frolicking with excitement.
Almost all songs of Jodha Akbar, Guru were sung as well as hit numbers from ATM,Sivaji,vettaiyadu vellaiyadu,Kandukondein,etc.A.R. also sang his UN "Pray for my brother" song.
The "Vande Mataram" song was a fitting finale for the 3.5 hr long concert.
