A king can rule for only a span of time. After him some one has to occupy the throne.
True fact and I do accept it. But there is always the quality of leadership that differentiates the kings. Else there would be no difference between Raja Raja Chozlan and Aurangazeb.

"Else there would be no difference between Raja Raja Chozlan and Aurangazeb. "
Both are rulers of two different lands and completely two different eras.
Aurangazeb should have been replaced by AKbar.
Can equate Raja Raja Chozlan and Rajendra Cholan - both ruled same peice of land , but one after another. But both are great.
No..No.. stop. YSR/KR are not Rajendra cholans. I don't mean them.

Common Friend you totally missed the point I was trying to make. I never intended to compare the 2 rulers (hence IR and ARR) as individuals. But the quality of life and prosperity in the regime the people enjoyed. So it all boils down to the output & not the time or place under consideration. I would have preferred to live under Raja Raja Cholan’s regime, rather under Aurangazeb.
Did I mention whose music I would prefer to listen to ??? :-)

Trend, have you ever heard of Bappi Lahiri, who was no 1 in Hindi for quite sometime...he easily proves the `not necessarily' statement of Shankar!

Since the name of this site suggests Tamil Film Music, I thought I didn't have to mention that.Since you mention Bappi Lahiri I think I should have mentioned TFM.
