A.R.Rahman is being recognised for his music ever since we werent even born. His top quality music has bagged several awards. However, It wasnt always this way.We can successfully say that he has earned every way to the top. His passion and charisma should be ssomething the youth should look up to. His dedication and hardwork are the sole reason for his success. Had he sat home and complaint about his life not working out for him the way he wanted to, he wouldn't have been able to achieve the milestones he has reached today. A.R Rahman is a singing legend who inspires every struggling singer in the nation. He tells us thet success needs to be worked for, not waited for. His list of achievements and his success story are why he iis at the top today.
