One of the songs was titled “Naan Yen Pirandein” (Why was I born?). “It is a song about a girl shunned by society because of her dark skin and abject poverty. About her agony on being lonely and persecuted and how she redeems herself from these obstacles and oppression”, disclosed the composer.Naan Yen Pirandein is sung by Rahman and his sister Raihannah, with lyrics penned by late great Vaali.
Talking about the 2nd track “Ennile Maha Oliyo” (I discovered the divine light within me) Rahman says, “This song is about the world of a liberated woman, her rapture and the blossoming of feminism.” A special song in itself, it has lyrics by Kutti Revathi. Both Rahman’s sisters Issrath and Raihannah have lent their voices for this track. Rasaayana Rojaakkal is an ambitious project by the composer who is keen on producing more meaningful cinema highlighting contemporary issues.
