Music and Fests

There's nothing I love more than music. And there's nothing in music I love more than performing on stage and that's exactly what I got to do today at Kala Mandir.
The band for CQ had asked me to sing for them, and I jumped at the chance. Although comprised mainly of class 12s, I had no problems fitting into their band. That's probably because I already knew Sumanas, Kunal, Aditya Bhattacharya, Aditya Sharma, Ramkamal and Kaustabh quite well. I got to know Raktim a little better during practice, which there was hardly any of, by the way.
The songs we were doing were Nothing Else Matters with one verse of Shaan's Le Chale in between for the medley, and John Denver's Leaving On A Jet Plane for my solo. I have this bad habit of appearing to be giving it to the mike stand when lost in the music, but somehow I did get that under control for my stage performance. Although the medley did screw up, when I met people after our performance, they told me that though the medley wasn't good, Leaving On A Jet Plane rocked. For that, I was satisfied with my performance - if a St. James guy said so, I have to believe him.
Our class 11 team once again rocked Impact. Saurav Mehta, Rohan Shah, Yash Kandoi, Akshay Doshi, Rachit Mehta, Ronak Mehta, Naman Saraiya, Hamza Khan, Harsh Sethia, Priyam Chaudhuri, Preet Tyagi and myself were the members of this victorious Impact team for CQ. This makes it 4 Impact wins in a row - Verizmo, Dhrishtikon, Momentum and Chiaros Quro. I hope that this LMB Impact team continues it's unbeaten run at the "Big Three" of 2007 - Callisto, Syzygy and Karma Yatra.
Our biggest satisfaction was that we beat St James, our biggest rivals. St James and LMB don't often compete at fests, and when we do encounter each other, it becomes an enthralling competition. This competition exists because LMB, St James and St Xavier's are the best of the school circuit, and therefore we have to feed on this rivalry to become the very best.
