Deja Vu

Circa 1991 or 1990. It could also be 1992. A musical genius stands up for his rights (some say it was an egoistic fight) and is slowly and steadily removed from the music scene.
Cut to present 2006. Another musical genius (some including me contend that he is not even half as talented as the first one ;-)) is now trying to fight for his rights and starts loosing projects.
Does history have a knack of repeating itself ?
PS: No prizes for guessing that that first and only musical genius was Illayaraja and the second one now is A.R.Rahman.
