Most of the people in PSG Tech came to know about the music legend’s arrival in PSG Sarvajana School on 22.01.2016 (Friday) only after late noon. The school was already bustling with decorations and preparations for his visit. The original plan was to pay tribute to Rabindranath Tagore by singing “Vande Mataram” and “Jana Gana Mana” as a reprisal to Tagore’s act in 1926 (who sang the National Anthem in unison with Sarvajana School students 21 years before Indian Political Independence!). Fans and admirers with “Omg! I can’t believe that I am going to meet him” squeals began flooding the school including seniors in spite of their internals. What we saw was unbelievable multitudes of fan waiting in the school, the bridge as long as ‘E’ Block, the nearby temple and every nook in and off the campus! How often do you get to see the AR Rahman after all!!

Few photos from our photographers:
