AR Rahman wins BAFTAS for best music score for the movie Slumdog Millionaire. Zakir Hussain wins Grammy for "Best Contemporary World Music" for his "Global Drum Project" album. Two more Indians were nominated for the Grammys but they didn't win.
Wow! What a day for India & Indian music at the world stage. It seems to be raining music awards these days in the Indian sub-continent. Reminds me of the idiom "When it rains, it pours"!
