Video of the Day: Taj Mahal Anthem, “Ek Mohabbat” by A.R. Rahman


Ok, this isn’t from a Bollywood movie, but I just think it’s a pretty song. I know it’s kind of cheesy and has a super “We Are the World” feel to it, but it drew me in. I am emotional putty in the musical hands of A. R. Rahman. Approximately 65% of his songs bring me to tears.  Damn him!

“One Love” (2007) Composed for Campaign to include Taj Mahal taj_mahal_small.jpgamong the Seven Wonders of the World. (wikepedia) Rahman has composed an ‘anthem’ to help gather support for the voting campaign to nominate the Taj Mahal as one of the seven wonders of the world. His song worked: The New 7 Wonders of the World.

Thanks to funda007 for the video.

  1. Yes, I remember that disturbing scene all too well, and it evoked a lot of the same feelings for me. It’s all part of the ride on Bollywood’s emotional rollercoaster.
