Some situations are stranger than fiction, often demanding a great deal of wisdom and discretion!
What appears docile, might not always so be, for the magnitude of forces can never be discerned!
So it Smells like teen spirit? But you said Come as you are, in a Heart Shaped Box! Why? For All Apologies? It must be for Polly to Drain You right? I can understand how it is In Bloom when Something in the Way, About a Girl seems Dumb to Breed the question Where Did You Sleep Last Night! Did you drink PennyRoyal Tea, On a Plain, near the School? I'm sure the Radio Friendly Unit Shifter taught you to know what it was like to have Been a Son more than a Scentless Apprentice! You Know You're Right when you Serve the Servants but I will not understand the Negative Creep, when you say Downer in Stain! No I will not be Sifting the Turnaround for the Very Ape Swap Meet and I certainly will not appreciate you calling Floyd the Barber!

Passion is what arms people to go into the chaotic future unaided. Passion is what drives ordinary people to perform extraordinary feats and create legends of themselves. As a very essential ingredient in the haphazard concoction of life, it is what prompts some of us to delve deep and discover our real selves and understand the purpose behind our existence.
One such instance of marvel is the Freaky Devotees band which was formed by very intimate friends of mine, brothers, Sourin and Subhrojyoti. Either of them like many of us are tied to the vagaries of corporate life and yet have taken the time and made the effort to realize their passion and thus add a substantial amount of satisfaction and joy to their otherwise robotic and hectic lives.
Sourin and Subhrojyoti were born in the 70s in Shillong, a place tucked away in a corner of India. They traveled widely with their parents and learnt to appreciate Mother Nature and music much better. They learned music from their parents. Sourin continued to pursue the traditional folk and classical form of Indian music while Subhrojyoti developed an immense liking for rock music and started performing while studying engineering at the National Institute of Technology, Jamshedpur. While in school Sourin met Zubin, now a very successful musician in Bollywood. Sourin collaborated with Zubin on a number of occasions, recording soundtracks for movies. He also collaborated with Lyton, a friend from college, for recording movie tracks. Zubin introduced Sourin to Utpal, a creative composer and arranger. Sourin, Subhro and Utpal formed "The Freaky Devotees Band." They recorded eight tracks for their first album "Sacred Musings". Mr. Subimal Roy Chaudhuri (Sourin's and Subhro’s father) produced the album and provided great support to the band.
I decided to do a post on them not merely because of them being good friends of mine, but because of them being shining examples of people who choose to better understand the purpose of their lives and unfailingly strive every moment to realize it and continually make reflective inward progress and change, something that has been a significant motivation to many of us who know the duo. The true purpose of life is in living unaided in the endeavour to seek ultimate bliss through one's actions no matter however small they seem to be. It takes courage, dedication and steadfast will in the face of all opposition! Efforts are always well paid. The band has been nominated for the prestigious Effigy Awards after having been voted favourites across 88 nations.
I also thought it well to put a link to their music which can be downloaded upon payment, for those who would be interested to sample it. Do visit it here. I have also put a small column window with the profile and the music download portal.
