Some of your copied tunes are ridiculously mismatched.
And some are as far from the truth as chalk from cheese. Like Paula Abdul's song was produced in 2007 where as Rahman's Thakshak in 1999. If you're suggesting, Rahman came forward in time to copy her music and go back.
And Maurice Ravel was a classical compositions. The notes from that are used to produce the song in question.

Of course I wouldn't expect unpatriotic, illiterates like you to understand that. But please bother checking on the facts before accusing great achievers who have bought laurels to the nation because if there was any truth to this, you would be there. Not writing sad posts like this.

May be I am not as intelligent as you but please try check your knowledge.

My Love Is for Real" is the first single from the 1995 Paula Abdul album, Head over Heels.
The song was reconstructed by dance group Strike in 1996. The song was written by Paula Abdul and Rhett Lawrence.

You yourself say that Rahmans Thakshak song year 1999.
So who copied or inspired from whom I think you will understand.
