Monday blues ...

It’s a Monday morning; you come to consciousness at Eleven am with a stiff neck, your head still resonating from last night’s blaring music. Your neck hurts as you try to get up and then you decide its better to stay put on the bed. Besides it’s a Monday morning! Nobody goes to work on a Monday! (Err they still do?) and hence you convince yourself to go back to sleep for another 5 minutes which eventually turn to 30. At eleven thirty you realize you have got to deposit money in the bank else the cheque that you have issued towards credit card bill payment would bounce due to insufficient funds. Reluctantly you wake up cursing the credit card company, the clock, and whatsoever is remotely related with the fact of getting you out of the bed.

Ok enough of you-person-perspective and abstract writing. Although it sounds like I have had a hangover from excessive alcohol consumption; I assure you, that is definitely not the case.


Yesterday I had been to IIT Madras’ yearly cultural fest called Saarang for the rock show. The two bands for the evening were a Singapore based band called firebrands and another Delhi based band called prestorika. Firebrands had a dj et al which typically reminds me of linkin park but then who cares about that. Anyways the point is that last thing I was expecting them to play was a pink floyd number but they did it. They played a slightly improvised version of ‘another brick in the wall’. They also did various other covers like ‘one step closer’ by Linkin park and ‘wake up’ by rage against the machines which I felt was more their style… Next up was prestorika who started with an immaculate “Sandman” by Metallica which got the crowd in the Mosh Pit wooing and screaming along with the lead singer. Now Speaking of Mosh Pit, It is definitely something you have to experience! Initially I was on the sidelines but then as firebrands got into the groove and people in the Mosh Pit grew insane, I jumped into the Mosh Pit giving vent to head banging and air-guitar-ing as crazy as ever! Let go of all inhibitions and go crazy with the music! T-o-Tally insane but it was fun! The head-banging gives you delusions of floating in space hehe Remember when you were child and used to go rotating in circles with your hands in the air? This is a similar experience albeit you flow with the music. You scream the lyrics if you know, you scream similar sounding gibberish if you don’t, but you are in a trance for that moment, or maybe hypnosis with music as your master. ;) Maybe I am exaggerating a wee bit here but yeah a similar state, that... Later prestorika shifted to more of megadeth and heavy metal tending to death metal which went beyond my head, it was tiring now, I looked at the energetic crowd with awe. Although I only wanted to stay a wee bit longer I had to leave…..

The case was something like this

Me: {Imagine: a completely wasted guy in a bar pleading for one more drink }

One more number guys?

Friends: Gotta go! It’s almost over anyway {read: That’s what you ve been telling from the last two songs}

Me: Yeah anyways my neck aches {read: Giving in Helpless}, but you know a wee bit longer wouldn’t hurt would it? {grin}

*Friends thought they heard me say ‘lets go’ and thus leave in a hurry*

60 seconds later I follow…

P.S: I shall upload a few shaky low-light pics I managed to take later… So watchout :P
