The Grammy Company of India

It's a triple-whammy for our film music. Or should we say, a triple Grammy?
Well, officially it is only the Diva of Daring, Asha Bhosle, who has won a nomination (her second incidentally after Legacy, the album that she did with Ustad Ali Akbar Khan). This time Asha triumphs as a nominee (along with Kronos Quartet) as the vocalist of You've Stolen My Heart: Songs From R.D.Burman's Bollywood which has been nominated in the ‘Best Contemporary World Music Album’ category.
And so we find R.D.Burman, that trendsetting and trend-breaking remix icon, also making it close to Grammy-land, for this 'Contemporary World Music of 2005' is nothing but his songs composed between the '60s and '80s, exhibiting so aptly the timeless and futuristic modernity of his songs.
But why do we use the term 'triple whammy'?
