Published on 12 February, 2017 at 1:27 pm By

Canada is a beautiful land. One of the world’s most developed countries, it is also a welcoming abode for the millions of refugees who are seeking shelter from the problems in Middle East and North Africa.

For instance, this is a normal road in Canada.

‘Who wouldn’t want to live in such a Utopia’, you ask? A.R. Rahman – he wouldn’t because to him there is something far more important than a mere beautiful country.

Everyone loves the music maestro, so it is obvious that there are nations that would be very proud of having him as a citizen. Unarguably one of India’s greatest composers in history, Rahman was recently offered the Canadian citizenship.

Rahman was in Toronto playing at a concert in his honour on Saturday. Toronto Mayor John Tory then offered Rahman to settle down in Canada. But Rahman turned that down. And what he told the mayor would make Indians very proud of the legend, if they are not already.

Some commented that Rahman has a permanent residency in the United States. Others clarified that it is not citizenship and that the residency is only for Rahman’s US assignments as part of his profession.

Rahman did not become Rahman only for his talent. He became Rahman because he has not forgotten his roots despite the phenomenal rise in his career.
