I choose love

I received a Share the Love award from French Essence

Thank you!

I attended an Oscar party the other night...amongst all the chatter I heard this gracious acceptance speech from AR Rahman for his best song win:

..."The essence of the film which is about optimism and the power of hope in the lives, and all my life I had a choice of hate and love. I chose love and I'm here."...

I choose love.

AR RAHMAN is my idol. He is a legend but is the most humble human being ever.
God Bless ARR

Yes, yes, yes! One of the best speeches of the entire night :) Love is sometimes considered an over used word but the only people who say that are people who have not allowed themselves to experiences all the different ways love can be felt :) Love is this world's one true joy!
