தமிழ் & සිංහල NEW YEAR!

இன்று புதுசு. நாளை பழசு.

பழசை கொன்று புதுசை கொண்டாடுறம்.
பழசுகள் செய்த பாழாய் போனவை புதுசு

வரிஷங்கள் வந்தன. மாசங்கள் போயின.
வாழ்கையின் வருத்தங்களும் வசந்தங்களும்..
வாரங்கள் வந்தன. நாட்கள் நீண்டன.
வந்த மாற்றங்களும் சமாதானமும்.

வந்தவை வரமாக.!
வாழ்கையில் இருள் நீங்க..!
மதி கொண்டு மனிதன்
கருனை நிதி கொண்டு கடவுள்
கடந்து வந்த வாழ்வின்
கஷ்டங்கள் நீக்க...!

வடக்கையும் தெற்கையும்
கிழக்கையும் மேற்கையும்
கத்வுகள் திறக்க.!
சாந்தி சமாதனம்
சர்வமும் சமமாக..!

புது வரிஷத்திலை புதுசா எதாவது நடக்கட்டும்.

I wish everyone a peaceful, healthy and happy தமிழ் & සිංහල new year.

A.R.Rahman conferred with Middlesex University degree

OMG! Guys, I'm thrilled! The musical god, A.R.Rahman is going to graduate with me:P! I can't wait to see him. This is the best news for me this year.... wooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwww.....!!

A R Rahman is on the receiving end. After the honorary doctorate offered by the Anna University, Chennai for his achievements in the field of music, now it is the turn of Middlesex University, London.

The Mozart of Madras has been identified for an honorary degree by the reputed Middlesex University, London. The degree is likely to be conferred on the maestro on the day of the Graduation Ceremony to be held at Middlesex University in London in the month of July this year. Mr. Joe Victor, Regional Director of Middlesex University met Mr. A.R Rahman and Mr. T Selvakumar Co-founder & CEO of KM Music Conservatory in Chennai, regarding this issue.
KM Music Conservatory & Audio Media Education was launched in the month of July last year. Their main goal is to train Indian students in Western music performance, Composition and Music Technology so that they can compete in the international arena. They are also working towards forming their own symphony orchestra consisting of its own musicians.
Talks are on with the Regional Director South Asia of Middlesex University, London, for academic recognition for the Bachelor of Arts Honors Program for Music Composition and Music Performance. This will be a three year program the first two years of which will be at Chennai at the KM Conservatory and the final year in London. The course is likely to start from January 2010. The eligibility criteria to avail this degree would be a pass in twelfth standard and one year training in KM Music Conservatory Foundation Program.
