Well, I would like to talk about A. R. Rehmaan. He has been performing as a role of a singer and music composer in Bollywood Industry, Indian Film Industry. However recently he has also started giving music in Hollywood films even. He has won an academy award Oscar award for producing the best music in movie Slum dog Millionaire. When I was in fifth standard at that time he has composed a song in Movie Bombay.Its been musically blockbuster. Everywhere people use to be found with the same song. The jingle of the music sensed everywhere. Since then onward, I have become fan of him. And he has produced consistently a pure and worth to listen music. In his music, we can find from soft and soothing to hard and rocking, fast music even. So he has been versatile in giving music. He is used to singing even and has fabulously sung in movies Dil se, Guru, swadesh and in many more. He has taken out the best out from the new singers and has made their career on the track like of Sonu Nigam, Mohit Chauhan, Hema sardesai and etc. If we want to feel tranquil and want to be hallucinated by music then his music is the standard dodge. he has his own band and also perform live concert world wide.


- Should we focus more on traditional music? Why?
No its not necessary but that doesn't mean that we have to neglect our traditional music. Its a recognition of our culture. an identity that cant be forgotten. But that doesn't mean again that we have been imposed the traditional music only. 

- Do you think having a good voice gives you an edge over others? Why?
Yes indeed, people always like to listen the other people who speak like chirping sound of birds. And in this way they easily win the admiration of people.

- What main qualities are required to be a good singer?
Ideas about musical notes, rising and falling rhythm, understanding of words and meaning to deliver emotions and passions related to song. These are the prior things I am afraid a person should have if he wants to be a good singer sorry great singer.

- Do you think the government should promote music in schools?
By all means, in this way children can channelize their moods from routine study which they find many a times boring. And however these days children have opportunity to make career due to the availability of exposure or plate form worldwide.
