  1. maharani

    Mahārāja ( MAH-hə-RAH-jə; also spelled Maharajah, or Maharaj) is a Sanskrit title for a "great ruler", "great king" or "high king".A few ruled states informally called empires, including ruler raja Sri Gupta, founder of the ancient Indian Gupta Empire, and Chandragupta Maurya. 'Title inflation' soon led to most being rather mediocre or even petty in real power, which led to compound titles (among other efforts) being used in an attempt to distinguish some among their ranks. The female equivalent, Maharani (or Maharanee, Mahārājñī, Maharajin), denotes either the wife of a Maharaja (or Maharana etc.) or also, in states where it was customary, a woman ruling without a husband. The widow of a Maharaja is known as a Rajmata, "queen mother". Maharajakumar generally denotes a son of a Maharaja, but more specific titulatures are often used at each court, including Yuvaraja for the heir (the crown prince). The form "Maharaj" (without "-a") indicates a separation of noble and religious offices, although since in Hindi the suffix -a is silent, the two titles are near homophones.

    Maharani is a 2005 music album by Nicolette "Nikki" Palikat, the Kadazan-Dusun singer from Malaysian Idol, released on the Artistes United Records label. Ning Baizura is the executive producer. The album was released on two CDs, with the second disc containing remixes. The album features a diverse range of instrumentation, from violins on "Imaginasi" to beat-drums and techno, and also features a rap from the Akademi Fantasia contestant Zahid. "Sunudai Oku" is sung in Nikki's native tongue, Bahasa Dusun. "Pinta" is the first single. The music video for "Caramu," track 2 and likely one of her most popular hits, has recently fallen subject to considerable criticism due to blatant use of concepts and choreography from various works of international South Korean pop star, BoA. In late 2006, the album were re-released with new tracks, new remixes as well a bonus music video VCD containing her music videos.
