A.R Rahman holds the OSCAR

CZAR OF OSCAR: Music composer A.R. Rahman holds the Oscars for Best Original Score and Best Original Song for the film Slumdog Millionaire which won eight awards, at the 81st Academy Awards function in Hollywood on Sunday. (Below) The film Director Danny Boyle with child actor Rubina Ali.

LOS ANGELES: "Slumdog Millionaire", the rags-to-riches story of a Mumbai slum dweller, had a golden run at the Oscars sweeping eight awards with two going to music maestro A R Rahman, the first Indian to achieve the historic feat.

43-year-old Rahman bagged Oscars for Original Score in the film, named the best at the 81st Academy Awards, and along with veteran lyricist Gulzar also won the Best Song award for the foot-tapping number 'Jai ho'.

"Before coming here I was excited and terrified. The last time I felt that way was when I was getting married," a beaming Rahman, dubbed as 'Mozart of Madras', said in his acceptance speech as he became the first Indian to win an Oscar in the mainstream section and the third after Bhanu Athaiya (costume design, 1983) and Satyajit Ray (lifetime achievement, 1992).

"The film is about optimism and the power of hope...all my life I had a choice of hate and love. I chose love and I'm here," Rahman, clad in a black suit, said about the low-budget movie based on Indian diplomat Vikas Swarup's novel "Q & A".

Kerala-born sound engineer Resul Pookutty notched up an Oscar for Sound Mixing while Briton Danny Boyle was adjudged the Best Director.

It is a great thing to be a part of this composition which has won an award. It is an extra happiness and extra thrill for me," Gulzar said in Mumbai.

"My first reaction was surprise and thrill but as soon as the programme started my bet was on Rahman. I am very happy for Resul."

After Steven Spielberg announced the best film award for "Slumdog Millionaire", most of the team members went up the stage amid thunderous applause.

Several of the child actors of the film were the cynosure of all eyes at the pre-Oscars red carpet parade, overawed by the glitter and glamour, a far cry from the Mumbai slums.

Rahman performed a medley of 'Jai ho' and 'O saya' assisted by dancers and singer John Legend and left the audience at the packed Kodak Theater awe-struck.

"Bollywood dancing should become the rage in Hollywood and I must take up some (Bollywood) dancing lessons myself," Amy Adams, nominated for the Best Supporting Actress, said at the post-Oscar party.

Simon Beaufoy picked up the best Adapted Screenplay and Anthony Dod Mantle the best Cinematography award for "Slumdog Millionaire" which also bagged the honours for Best Editing.

Rahman dedicated his Oscars to god and his mother Kareema Begum, who was seated among the audience here. "There is a Hindi dialogue 'mere pass ma hai' which means even if I have got nothing I have my mother here. I want to thank her for coming all the way to support me," he said.

"Slumdog Millionaire" edged past Brad Pitt-starrer "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button", which had 13 nominations. The film won three Oscars.

In all, 25 Oscars were announced.

Kate Winslet won Best Actress Oscar for her role as a Nazi prison guard in "The Reader" while Sean Penn was awarded the best Actor Oscar his portrayal of a gay-rights activist for "Milk".

Heath Ledger bagged the Oscar posthumously for best Supporting Actor for his diabolic role of 'Joker' in "The Dark Knight".

Penelope Cruz picked up her first Oscar as she was named the Best Supporting Actress for the role in "Vicky Cristina Barcelona".

The Oscar statuette, which depicts a knight holding a crusader's sword and standing on a reel of film, stands 13.5 inches tall and weighs in at a robust 8.5 pounds. The film reel features five spokes, signifying the five original branches of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences: actors, directors, producers, technicians and writers

The history and tradition behind Valentines Day

Hundreds of years ago in England, many children dressed up as adults on Valentine's Day. They went singing from home to home. One verse they sang was:

Good morning to you, valentine;
Curl your locks as I do mine ---
Two before and three behind.
Good morning to you, valentine.

In Wales wooden love spoons were carved and given as gifts on February 14th. Hearts, keys and keyholes were favourite decorations on the spoons. The decoration meant, "You unlock my heart!"

In the Middle Ages, young men and women drew names from a bowl to see who their valentines would be. They would wear these names on their sleeves for one week. To wear your heart on your sleeve now means that it is easy for other people to know how you are feeling.

In some countries, a young woman may receive a gift of clothing from a young man. If she keeps the gift, it means she will marry him.

Some people used to believe that if a woman saw a robin flying overhead on Valentine's Day, it meant she would marry a sailor. If she saw a sparrow, she would marry a poor man and be very happy. If she saw a goldfinch, she would marry a millionaire.

A love seat is a wide chair. It was first made to seat one woman and her wide dress. Later, the love seat or courting seat had two sections, often in an S-shape. In this way, a couple could sit together -- but not too closely!

Think of five or six names of boys or girls you might marry, As you twist the stem of an apple, recite the names until the stem comes off. You will marry the person whose name you were saying when the stem fell off.

Pick a dandelion that has gone to seed. Take a deep breath and blow the seeds into the wind. Count the seeds that remain on the stem. That is the number of children you will have.

If you cut an apple in half and count how many seeds are inside, you will also know how many children you will have.

valentines day special mp3 songs collection

Valentine's Day is often refered to as St. Valentine's Day. There were two Saints attributed to the naming of the holiday. Both men were imprisoned and killed for being Christians in the 3rd century A.D. One story goes that one of the Saints wrote a letter to his jailer's daughter for her kindness and signed it 'your Valentine'.

A more likely story is that both Saints died on February 14, which in Roman times was the night before a festival called Lupercalia.

This Roman festival had a lot to do with fertility and probably some of those customs got attached to the modern day celebrations of Valentine's Day.

Today, it is a day to tell people you love them and exchange Valentine's cards.and send this blog url or send this link or mail this blog post to your valentine as a Gift... get the positive response..
