The 81st Academy Awards will forever remain in the History of Indian cinema. It is a turning point not only for A.R. Rahman, but almost all of the talents that are almost unrecognized by the international community of film lovers, fans, critics, and all others having something to do with movies, music and all other mediums of entertainment.
A R Rahman (Allah Rakha Rahman) won two Oscars for the Best Original Song “Jai Ho” and the Best Original Score. Rahman played many instruments and he joined accomplished performers like Zakir Hussain, M.S. Vishwanathan, Ramesh Naidu, etc. in his early career.
Rahman shot into fame in 1992 by providing music score and sound track to Mani Ratnam’s Roja. It was followed by some of the spectacular scores for Tamil, Telugu and Hindi movies before he shot into international fame.
“Rahman is the first one who has broken the cliched form of Indian songs”, said Slumdog lyricist Gulzar, who wrote the lyrics of Jai Ho and shared the Oscar with A R Rahman.

Some people spend a lot of money on eyeglasses, whether they are prescription glasses or just sunglasses. Picking up fashionable designer frames and prescription glasses can cost hundreds of dollars. But an article, Seeing Straight Without Breaking Bank in the New York Times, helped me a lot.
Something really amazing! Zenni Optical in the New York Times?! Just see the image of the stylish glasses above, out of which you can select silver, gray or gold. Well that is my selection, but you can choose from hundreds of varieties and styles. You don’t need to have deep pockets to buy from Zenni Optical. Prescription eyeglasses for only $8!
The best part is this online store sells not only at the best of prices you can shop around but their eyeglasses are stylish and functional. It will be worthwhile to mention they are able to sell at such low rates just because they do not have any middlemen or advertising costs, and they sell only their own manufactured items.
