Music composer A R Rahman was presented with an honorary doctorate from Miami University on Saturday. He shared a picture of him with the doctorate and also posted a note in which he showed his gratitude.  

'Respected President Hodge, Provost Gempesaw, Dean Lentini, Dr Gene Willeke and other dear friends, 25 years ago, I would never have imagined the following:

'The US President and his family sending me personally signed invitations to come over to the White House and following up with Christmas Cards, Getting a visa to come to the US, let alone coming over to share my love and music with Miami University. Getting my first American Honorary Doctorate from Miami of Ohio.

'I cannot believe that it is over ten years since my music and me have been associated with Miami University. I have enjoyed collaborating with your students and faculty and above all, every interaction has allowed for greater understanding, sensitivity and growth. I feel humbled by the fact that so many students here from another culture have made my music part of their lives. Learning from this experience has allowed me to gain considerable confidence in starting my own Western Classical Music Conservatory in India. Above all, there are several Miami students who have come over to assist me in making KM Music Conservatory grow in multiple ways and they have grown themselves learning from our culture back in South India,' he wrote in the note.
