those pretty little hearts which beat to his mesmeric music are sure to
be disappointed. India's Pied Piper, the 27-year-old music director,
A.R.Rahman, is getting married. And unlike in the movies, it wasn't love
at first sight. Rahman told his mother that all his bride needed to have
was some education, some beauty and loads of humility. And mama cried
Eureka when she saw a young girl praying in a mosque. But here, the plot
thickened, as in Roja, Rahman's tour de force: The girl's parents---her
father is a Madras-based businessman---said wrong number: if they were
looking for a bride, it sould have to be their older daighter,
21-year-old Saira. A .R.Rahman fan herself, she couldn't let him down.
As for Rahman, now it's Khwabon mein tu, saason mein tu...Saira!
