What does Rahman want out of his time on this planet There are a few answers that come to mind right away. He wants to make great music. He wants to give back to the world by solving as many of its problems as he can. Then of course he wants to contribute to the cinema of India and the world. He wants to be a good man-a good husband, father, son, brother, employer, colleague and friend.
Sure, he wants all those things. But what is his ultimate goal
To put it very simply, it's probably this: A.R. Rahman wants to show the world that art matters. That music matters. That creative imagination can indeed change and heal the world, just as much as science can.
