Listen to the prodigy in a casual banter with Sudha Ragunathan - on his journey, his special moments, his passions and his children. There is so much fun, some profound thoughts, some expressions in all humility, some learnings and so much gratitude.

  • Thank you for these pleasant interviews. Your questions are thoughtful and poignant. Your interaction is very charming. One suggestion - I think these would be even more enjoyable if it were more of a conversation, with you adding more to the banter, rather than such a Q&A format. We'd love to hear more from you too, and I think the guests would find that more engaging as well.

  • Unlike many other "Big Shots" Rahman Saab is very simple, shy & boyish in his Public Speaking, in interviews etc, which is refreshing and charming... As people say Simplicity & Humility will take a person to higher places in life.... He said, "My wife and family are MORE excited by my getting Oscars! Even today!!" That's a nice sweet thing to hear. When the world is full of grand standing and noisy, ARR brings Genuine Greatness to the Table..... Very enjoyable interview... We all get goose bumps when he said, "For me, my Mom is the Super Star!" That is more revealing than "She said, when you have 2 Rs, spend only 1 Re not 4 Rs!!"

Creatively high and spirtually balanced all at the same time... So much deep. Must say excellent and well framed thoughtful questions by sudha ji.

  • Goosebumps listening to ARR talk about stalwarts Devarajan master, Arjunan master, and especially eager to see the clip of him jamming with Swami (Dakshinamoorthy) from 2010? (He said 10 yrs back I think I heard). And the most he has mentioned and praised here is KS Chitra even though nothing related to her was asked. It shows how much regard he has for the legend.

  • Seen prior shows in bits and pieces and I liked them. Sorry I couldn’t see them fully but will do so soon from you tube. Interview withThiru Abdul Rahman saw from beginning to end. Both Mrs Sudha Ragunathan and Tiru Rahman stalwarts in music industry is an unique one. It’s a phenomenal interview, learned a lot about Rahman as a human and as a professional. In essence saw the faith, dedication and self discipline bring success personal satisfaction and public credibility. Fame and money are ones own Karma but not the focus. Undercurrent thinking so well Expressed by both of you that success one time is not permanent motivate both of you to keep you sadhana going and keep learning new things certainly make both of you young and top of your profession. I can’t justify the appreciation I have for both of you and my personal take from this interview in this small comment. Thank you both for this great interview - this E and E show is more than a silver lining in the dark cloud of Corona lockdown 🙏🏻.

  • Very nice interview with Rahman. Children of the 90 s and after are simply blown away from his unique musical style. The earlier generations too have been his very close followers. However I don't think he is much into Carnatic music, though he has not said so in so many words - because the very heart of it is deeply connected to the Hindu ethos.

    Nethra KanagasabaiNethra Kanagasabai2 महिन्यांपूर्वी
    • Adhitya S He recommends I think to learn from all music compositions from the world . It may be true all are good platforms to learn and experiment . But only in the Carnatic music tradition the music is itself connected to saints and bhaktas. Some of the famous western classical music composers had very debauch lifestyle. Some even went mad ! Except for church music , there is nothing spiritual in other music forms in my opinion. Haha.

      Nethra KanagasabaiNethra Kanagasabai2 महिन्यांपूर्वी
    • True. He pales in comparison to Raaja sir wrt Carnatic music. Actually, in most respects he does. He’s a great producer, whereas, Raaja sir is the greatest film score composer in the world.
