In the conversation with the students, Rahman emphasized the transformative power of selflessness. "You will not be selfish when you live for others. Your life will be meaningful," he expressed. For Rahman, this philosophy extends beyond his music composition, encompassing acts of kindness such as writing and providing sustenance to those in need.

The maestro encouraged the audience to find purpose and meaning by contributing positively to the lives of others. He shared, "I think of this when composing music, writing, and feeding those who don't have food. That's what drives us." Rahman believes that by embracing a selfless approach, individuals can navigate the complexities of life and find fulfillment in making a difference.
