Last evening as I chat with my friends, we came upon a topic about the state of Indian Rock/Indian Metal or mumbai to be more specific.I was of the opinion that its pretty ,ok we have people who think rock , two great places for concerts 1)The BKC 2)MMRDA grounds , and police is cooperative aswell .Bang came the reply from him, its only students who listen to rock , he exclaimed and not grown up uncles who include office goers , followed by a slap on the back of my head , that meant that BKC and MMRDA grounds are same (stupid me) and pandus are no more than ' Jai Maharshtra'. It then clicked to me that the state of is only sad if not pathetic, but i being a struggling science student began exploring reasons for it.
Secondly, people grow up watching fillum videos, or sa,re,ga,ma,pa (remember Vishal Dudlani) dreaming to make into Bollywood , and till 10th rock means a stone or The Rock(WWE), a matter to laugh indeed.
But the most important, social reason or those sitting on CHAIR, I dont know what problem they have, lets take an example of Independence Rock(I-Rock), Indias biggest Rock event that happens at Gateway of India, we need 'n' number of formalities and permission to be taken.
1) To hold an event
2) To hold a public event
3) To use loud speakers
4) To use public place
5) To get police permission, that simply means that this event wont become a riot or may be for some thing else.
Some betrayers like Vishal Dudlani, who ditch their band for money. This list is endless,those people there are happy to let Shakira or Akon or 50 Cent perform, but wont allow Indians. Again this list is endless, but my eyes are drooping, I better sleep, gotta attend practicals tommorrow.
