My inspiration
Here I am to write about the person whom I admire a lot in my life and he is being a great inspiration for me in my life
The person whom I admire the most is the youngest Music Composer/Singer in the Indian Film Industry, Anirudh Ravichander. Anirudh Ravichander was born on 16 October 1990. He is an Indian film composer and singer. He made his debut in the Tamil film, 3 directed by Aishwarya R. Dhanush. The song, "Why This Kolaveri Di”, which Anirudh had composed for the Tamil film 3, went viral on YouTube and tracked more than 85 million views. His subsequent albums have all become commercial successes and he has won acclaim from critics for his soundtrack music and background recordings. He has been inspired by the music of A. R. Rahman.
He was just three years old, when his magical fingers touched the keyboard and no one ever thought that he would become a famous music director in a short period. He did his schooling at Padma Seshadri Bala Bhavan, one of the most prestigious educational institutions in Chennai. He graduated from Loyola College, Chennai in 2011, which according to him was just a backup in case his music career did not take off. Anirudh learnt classical piano from Trinity College of Music, London. He also learnt Carnatic music, and was part of a Carnatic fusion band. At the age of 10, he started composing music and in 2011 he landed his first break with '3' movie at the age of 21. That was his first success.
Anirudh revealed that he had played the keyboard for compositions by A. R. Rahman and was a part of a band called Zinx. In early November 2011, a leaked version of a song from the film, "Why This Kolaveri Di" circulated online and the film's team decided to subsequently release it officially on 16 November 2011 with a music video. Anirudh was in the fusion band that won the competition. Anirudh's biggest moment was when he was awarded the Best Instrumentalist, a prize he received from his idol, the great Rahman himself.
It has been years he entered this cinema industry and all his albums have been a super blockbuster huge hit. His music is an energy boost for me. He and his music never ever failed to put a smile on my face every day. I wish all the best for him and may he reach greater heights of success and the success is all his. I just wish to meet him once in my lifetime.
I am very proud to say that I am a great fan of Anirudh. He inspires me a lot and I got inspired after I watched one of his interviews and he said until now he never asks for pocket money from his father since his schooling. He will manage his expenses by using the money that he gained with his bands. This inspired myself to write something about him, and here it is, my first attempt of writing an inspirational story about my inspirer Anirudh. I also wish to write a novel about him soon. Thanks to Anirudh for giving me a lot of inspiration.
