Rahman's Oscar nomination was  received with  lukewarm response here in Tamilnadu and no positive comments were heard from the so called maestros of ego ridden Tamil filmdom and the state government . Not even from the leading figures in the Tamil  film industry and it's superstar actors. A kind of  silence was being  felt here  regarding Rahman's entry into the Ocsar fray.  It is strange  to see  such reaction from those who were salivating just to hear the name of oscar being spellt. Now  that Rahman has won 2 Oscars, let us see what happens. The government as usual will celebrate this soon - it has to - as  a routine. 

Rahman has proved them all  wrong. This  quite, self made  genius of a musician has definitely got more laurels and accolades coming his way . We salute you, our little maestro !

Tamil filmdom never recognized anybody when they are alive ! The egoistic trend still continues. Sivaji Ganesan deserved better respect than what the state has given when he was alive.Rahman was initially criticized for his 'wesetern' style of music.But he replied his critics with films like 'Swades' and 'Mangal Pandey'.He could touch the hearts of punjabi,Hariyani and Rajastani while dealing with their stories in cinema.It is an achievement indeed ! How many tamil directors and music composers can understand and assimilate their stories and music notes beyond their 'Tamil world' !? (However,It is a highly debatable issue and not in the scope of this topic,Pardon me,..)
Thank you Konangal,..I am happy that you recognized him!
