The Blessing by AR Rahman | Hindu Wedding Highlight | Vijai Ananth & Siveneswari by Digimax Video Productions from Digimax Video Productions on Vimeo.
The wedding highlight featuring our main stars of the day, Vijay Ananth & Siveneswari.
We at Digimax are too fortunate to have this newly wed couple who volunteer to do the write up for their video-clip, story behind the video . And here we have Mr. & Mrs. Vijay Ananth…..
Vijai Ananth here. There is a saying in Tamizh which goes:- “ManaiviAmaivathellaamIraivanKodutthaVaram”. Translated literally, it means “the one who becomes your wife, is a boon from Almighty”. I met my wife, Siveneswari, in unbelievable circumstances. Her cousin, who happened to be my friend from our Oil and Gas Industry circle, rang me one day way back in January 2013 and asked if I would like to get to know Siveneswari in view of marriage. No photos were given, her name not revealed, only some basic details of her education, location, and family background. I was willing to get to know her. However, when my friend gave some details about my background, Siveneswari out rightly rejected the idea, as at that point of time she was keen on pursuing her studies and was averse to marriage proposals.
However, destiny has it otherwise. Siveneswari apparently lived in a women’s hostel at that time, and coincidentally her roommate happened to be my Godsister. My Godsister looks up to me as a role model and even has my photograph on her wall. Siveneswari knew who am I by name and had high regards for me, but little did she know that I was the same person whom she turned down.
Approximately 4 months later, around mid May 2013, I went to have dinner at Chat Masala restaurant at Brickfields. I bumped into my Godsister and Siveneswari who were in the midst of having dinner at the same restaurant. They invited me over to their table. I obliged and conversed with Siveneswari. As I casually asked Siveneswari some questions pertaining to her background education etc, the responses she gave made me curious, as the details were matching with the details of the marriage proposal which my friend mooted couple of months ago. As the conversation progressed, I was almost sure that Siveneswari was the girl that my friend wanted to introduce to me. Finally, I asked her: “Do you know anyone by the name of Sumitra?(her cousin’s name) . The moment I asked the question, she realised that I am the guy she turned down. There were a moment of silence on the table. The awkwardness. That meeting was the beginning of our journey which ended in marriage. I am a vegetarian, and she happens to be a vegetarian too. I wanted a cultured girl with a balanced outlook of modernity. She happens to be one. God has been kind to me.
Another thing worth mentioning about our marriage is that the first person to receive our wedding invitation was none other than the two times Academy Award and Grammy Award winning music phenomenon, AR Rahman. Growing up, AR Rahman was my role model, and over these years he has taught me how to be a good human being, how to work hard, how to be humble and the list goes on. It was God given opportunity that I could be in touch with him through e-mails for the past 13 years. When I told AR Rahman that I need his blessings,he obliged and set aside 5 minutes of his time at his residence for my fiancee and myself. I would say, we were mighty privileged to receive this honour. Digimax team Miss Low and Mr Lee have been kind enough to include the portions of the video where AR Rahman blesses my wife and myself. The blessings from Isai Puyal AR Rahman is something that VijaiAnanth and Siveneswari shall treasure till eternity.
