Christians, Jews upset with Rahman's 'Hosanna'


New Delhi: Prateik and Amy Jackson are very busy these days promoting their upcoming film Ekk Deewana Tha, directed by Gautham Menon. Oscar winner AR Rahman has composed the music of the film.
The latest catchy number from Ekk Deewana Tha titled Hosanna has run into trouble. The Catholic-Christian Secular Forum (CSF) is extremely upset with the use of wordHosanna in the song. CSF has taken up the issue with authorities concerned and wants the song to be withdrawn.
CSF also plans to launch a public agitation if no action is taken against the song. In a complaint to the music director, besides others concerned like Fox Star Studio and Sony Music, CSF has demanded an apology. According to the complaint, the song has hurt not only Christian, but also Jewish religious sentiments, Hosanna being a prayer for both communities.
Joseph Dias, CSF general secretary said, "We are not going into the lyrics or vulgar picturisation of the song, which is also objectionable. However, would like to point out that internationally Hosanna is a prayer in the Bible and used by both Jews and Christians, referring to God or Jesus Christ, with strong reverential and religious connotations."
Dias further adds, "To use it in a movie where the boy, falls in love with a girl, who belongs to an orthodox Malayali Christian family where watching movies, partying or falling in love are completely taboo, is mocking and ridiculing the faith of the person. If you would not use Islamic, Hindu or prayers from any other religion in pop secular music, then why do you use Hosanna."
Last month, CSF and other community groups complained against the poster of the filmWho's There - Kaun Hai Waha. Director, producer and others concerned had to spend days in custody in Mumbai following police action.
Gautham Menon is a noted south Indian film director. The film is produced by Reshma Ghatala, Venkat Somasundaram and Javed Akhtar being the lyricist.
Let's wait and watch whether Rahman and Menon withdraw the song or can think of a midway for truce. The film will hit the screens on 17 February, 2012.

Not a song or a word, rather all such communities should be banned
where "falling in love are completely taboo".

Investment or expense?

Coming from a lower middle class family, the difference between both terms were indistinguishable to me. Every time I used to buy a piece of music equipment I would think "How many starving people could have had food or shelter with this money?" The money spent on my gear would make me feel guilty in a way, but also make the particular instrument or gear really valuable and special. I would personally wipe it and clean it most of the times even though my assistants would feel bad about it. Creatively, having that instrument put me at the cutting edge in my own way; within myself I felt a responsibility to push myself to excel.

I would think about how fortunate I was to own some of these valuable instruments that I made music with...

Yesterday, we performed in Chennai, at the Lady Andal school auditorium with the German Film Orchestra Babelsberg. It had 1200 odd seats. 4500 people wanted to see the concert but we couldn't accommodate everyone. When we performed in Delhi last Sunday, at the Siri Fort auditorium, the venue could not hold almost 10 musicians in the 100-piece orchestra, and it was claustrophobic and risky to sit on the stage. Hence, some of them couldn't play.

An orchestra needs a special acoustic setting, to completely express the trueness of the sound and the way they play. Many world class orchestral acts and classical performers don't come to India because we don't have such venues in many cities. So, our amazing music lovers who have never travelled abroad are denied this experience of listening to the organic sound of a symphony orchestra.

As a musician and composer, I feel having well designed performance halls would help create an ecosystem that would encourage more people to take to music as a profession, for musicians to practice their art, flourish and even earn a respectable living. For exponents of both Western and Indian music...

Music changes our lives, the way we live, the way we think... It transports us to a good, safe place where we feel at peace... I forget my problems when I am in into it. I am sure every music lover feels the same.

Today, the Opera House in Sydney and the Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles have become landmarks that are recognized world over. We have some examples to emulate even in India. The NCPA in Mumbai, which was set up with the assistance of the Tatas, is excellent in many aspects.

Shouldn't Indian composers think beyond film music? Take Indian acoustic sound to world standards? Shouldn't modern India build this in every major city? Wouldn't this be an investment for intellectual musical awakening? Or is it an expense? What do you think?

This is a pukaar to individuals and corporates, who are shining bright... who are interested to take the lead and change the way we live and cherish our arts.
