Happy quotes by rahman

The demand in   India is to have a hit, which becomes a promotion for the movie and makes   people come to the theater. You have five songs and different promotions   based on those. But when I do Western films, the need for originality is   greater. Then I become very conscious about the writing.

My mother's belief   in spiritual healers grew stronger after our family went through a rough   patch following my father's death. Sufi saint Karimullah Shah Kadri changed   our lives, and all of us converted to Sufism. But it wasn't an instantaneous   decision - it took us 10 years to convert. The change in religion was like   washing away the past.

After a point of   time, when you get success and fame, money and everything, the purpose of   life has to be redefined. For me, I think that purpose is to build bridges.   Artists can do that very easily, more than politicians.

My music is mostly   for the music. And it gives the liberty to do anything which I want. And   nobody limits me to one genre of music. But I learn from life and I try to   give back to life, in a way, whether it's the thought of the song or whether   it's the approach to the arrangement or anything.

A musician is a   professional, whether he or she is successful or not. The profession itself   must be regarded as a stable job.

I was famous from   the age of 13, and after a while you become imamune to it - in a good way. You   look at positives and what you can do with it.

It's true that I   love to connect with my fans on the social networking sites, but I try not to   go overboard, ever. I just give people a peek into my mind space, but never   bombard them with my tweets.

The   more dollars the studio producers put in, the less freedom we have. If the   budget hits $100m, they get scared - they'll take the existing score of a   successful movie and expect composers to copy it, like wallpaper. The biggest   challenge for any composer in Hollywood is to be as creative as possible   within those boundaries.
