AR Rahman responds to Canada naming a street after him
The post read, “I never imagined this in my life. I am very grateful to all of you, the Mayor of Markham, Canada and Counsellors, Indian Consulate General and the people of Canada.” He further adds, “The name of A.R. Rahman is not mine. It means merciful. The merciful is the quality of the common god we all have and one can only be the servant of merciful. So, let that name bring peace, prosperity, happiness and health to all people living in Canada. God bless you all. I want to thank my brothers and sisters of India for all the love. All the creative people who worked with me, gave me the inspiration to rise up and celebrate hundred years of cinema; with all the legends included. I am a very small drop in the ocean.”
“I feel like this gives me immense responsibility to do much more and be inspiring; not to get tired and not to retire.. yet. Even if I get tired i will remember that i more things to do, more people to connect and more bridges to cross.”
