I enjoyed running into these sounds. This band meshes Indian traditions with western vibrations extremely well. They are somewhat popular in India, but I doubt that many here in the USA have heard of them. Maybe there is to much Indian influence for most western ears to fully appreciate what is with these sounds, or maybe they aren’t as good as I’m hearing. Anyways, the writer is short on time and getting ready to go see Foo Fighters with The Doctor. Have a great day!!!

“The real hopeless victims of mental illness are to be found among those who appear to be most normal. Many of them are normal because they are so well adjusted to our mode of existence, because their human voice has been silenced so early in their lives, that they do not even struggle or suffer or develop symptoms as the neurotic does. They are normal not in what may be called the absolute sense of the word; they are normal only in relation to a profoundly abnormal society. Their perfect adjustment to that abnormal society is a measure of their mental sickness. These millions of abnormally normal people, living without fuss in a society to which, if they were fully human beings, they ought not to be adjusted.” – Aldous Huxley
