They say that everyone has a little bit of a writer in them and Kapil Sibal, the Union Minister of Communications and IT just proved that right by writing lyrics to none other than A.R.Rahman’s upcoming album on the current political and social scenario, Raunaq! You read that right, we are soon going to be listening to seven wonderful compositions by A.R.Rahman on politics which were actually written by a politician..isn’t that great? Well, lets just hope that it has some positive impact on the political scenario of the country at the moment.
Speaking about it, this is what Kapil Sibal had to say, “When one writes, his surroundings often end up becoming important participants in the activity. I’ve found that expression through my poetry and the result is beautiful.” And here’s why he thought writing for A.R.Rahman was the best thing to happen to him, “Rahman is a genius. I felt my words had found their soul in his tunes. His tone and texture is free of any extravaganza. He creates music, not items. When I wrote these songs, I wanted them in the hands of someone who had consistency of thought and I think Rahman’s music has that.”
Apparently each of those songs is extremely unique and beautifully written and composed. And by the way, this wasn’t the first time that Kapil Sibal has unleashed the writer in him, he’s also been the script writer for this movie called Bandook.
