Relevant section:
And in the year 1993, he became the first Indian to compose a full-fledged Symphony in Western Classical Music. The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, London, played his Symphony composition under the baton of conductor, Sir John Scott - this is also the first occasion when an Asian's Symphony has been played by the RPO. Illaiyaraja used an 80 piece classical symphony orchestra of the RPO and the music is in five independent movements. The conductor Sir John Scott and others from the RPO have confessed that the Symphony was written in less than a month's time, which is something unheard of.

Ramki, I remember hearing your point from IR himself in one of his TV interviews.

He said generally people take years to compose a symphony but it seems he had taken a month or so. He also went on to say that people have also done that in a few days too.

[tscii:878082accd]just went through seshadri's article again and found a startling last line:
"The man has been keeping a low profile since the emergence of A. R. Rahman from his own troupe. "
