In a cozy café nestled amidst the bustling streets of Delhi, Findie Publication had the privilege of sitting down with the legendary rock band Parikrama for an intimate chat over steaming cups of coffee. With a career spanning over three decades, Parikrama has been a cornerstone of the Indian rock music scene since its inception in 1991. Led by Subir Malik, the band has carved a niche for themselves with their electrifying performances and soul-stirring compositions.
As we settled in, the ambiance echoed with the hum of anticipation. Subir Malik, the band’s founder and keyboardist, exuded a sense of quiet confidence as he shared insights into the band’s latest track, “Life is Certain.” The song, he explained, delves into the complexities of human perception, offering a poignant exploration of the gap between reality and our subjective interpretations. “It’s about our inner voice guiding us towards clarity,” Malik mused, his eyes alight with passion.
When asked about the inspiration behind the track, Malik’s response was simple yet profound: “Life.” It was evident that Parikrama draws inspiration from the very essence of existence, infusing their music with raw emotion and universal truths.
Reflecting on their remarkable journey, Malik reminisced about the band’s humble beginnings and the countless highs and lows they’ve encountered along the way. “Parikrama isn’t just a band; it’s a way of life,” he remarked, a hint of nostalgia coloring his words. From sold-out concerts to moments of self-doubt, the band has weathered it all with unwavering determination and a deep-seated love for their craft.
As the conversation unfolded, it became clear that Parikrama’s longevity can be attributed to their unwavering passion for music and their steadfast commitment to authenticity. “We’ll keep playing rock ‘n’ roll in English until the end of time,” Malik declared with a grin, embodying the band’s indomitable spirit.
As we bid farewell to Parikrama, the echoes of their music lingered in the air, a testament to their enduring legacy in the Indian music landscape. With “Life is Certain” serving as a poignant reminder of life’s unpredictability, Parikrama continues to inspire audiences with their timeless melodies and unwavering resolve.
