INDIA shining at the Oscars!

23 Feb

Feb 23, 2009 will be a red letter day in the annals of Indian music as the “Mozart of Madras” A.R.Rahman bagged the much-coveted Oscar and to top it all, he got two Oscars not just one! Let us not forget the other Indian who made us proud—Resul Pookutty (he gave an amazing short speech) who won the award for best sound mixing. For me, the ultimate defining moment was at the end when Slumdog Millionaire won the best motion picture award and all the crew of the movie (including the cute kids!) came onto the stage. Many of them were Indians- A.R.Rahman, Resul, Anil Kapoor, Irrfan Khan, Loveleen Tandon, the child and other young actors.  Overall it was an unforgettable Oscars for India as finally our music and our movies are going global!

    Yes, Narayanan, I think the only other major award that Rahman has to get is the Grammy award and I hope he gets that too in the near future 🙂
