Past Wednesday is when the good word about Highway started brimming over the horizons of social media.

Rockstar Music Review: Rahman learns to ROCK

First things first, this post is dedicated to each & every member from A R Rahman Yahoo Fan Group which has been an integral part of my daily life for past years and even though this post maybe amateurish but had to finally write about a musical genius called A R Rahman whom I respect a lot and without which, music would not have been so life inspiring.Continue reading “Rockstar Music Review: Rahman learns to ROCK”
