Oscars AWARDS 2009 -'Slumdog' is the big winner

The most electrifying performance of the Oscar night came from none other than A R Rahman who took the stage and sang his two nominated songs from Slumdog Millionaire .

Just moments before he stepped on stage with the microphone, the prodigious composer created history by becoming the first Indian music composer to win an Oscar for his music in ‘Slumdog Millionaire’. Dressed in a black bandhgala (a traditional Indian outfit), Rahman even cracked a popular dialogue from Hindi films – ‘Mere Paas Maa Hai’ – (I have mother) to thank his mother and quipped a quick thanks to God in Tamil.

Then he dashed backstage and re-appeared moments later to perform his songs ‘O Saya’ and ‘Jai Ho’ with a troupe of dancers. Rahman himself sang the numbers and left the audiences thrilled with his scintillating performance.

As the double treat, his won his second Oscar of the night for “Jai Ho” that has lyrics by Gulzar . In his acceptance speech, Rahman thanked his entire crew and added in the end: “In my life I have had to choose between love and hate. I chose love and I am here today.”

The whole Kodak Theatre reverberated with applause. Back home in India, a billion hearts erupted with joy. “Jai Ho,” Rahman.

Ofcourse I am proud of Rehman/Gulzar but when it comes to Slum dog, i think nobody would disagree: there is lot more in India to be projected. The question is can't they see outside SLUMs? There is lot more in India.
