AR Rahman- Happy Birthday

Born A.S. Dileep Kumar in Chennai, A. R. Rahman is India’s foremost musical talent. The man, who, in 2008 alone, gave us memorable melodies like Aditi, Khwaja Mere Khwaja, Dost and Guzarish, turns 43 on January 5. We trace his musical journey.Rahman was born into a musical family and started learning the piano at a young age. His father composed for Malayalam movies, but died when Rahman was just nine. So, the family started to rent out his musical equipment. Last year, he also started a music school called the KM Music Conservatory in Chennai. He also runs the A R Rahman Foundation which looks after the needs and nutrition of the needy. The proceeds from some of his concerts and singles are often donated to his foundation.

Rahman's 2009 line up includes Blue, Dilli 6 and Eight By Ten. We can't wait to hear it and wish that this inimitable musical maestro continues to enrich our lives with his superior and divine music. Happy birthday Rahman!
