Mutiny In March, a metal-rock band, were the first to perform. Though their performance was laden with synchronised head-banging by the band members, their music seemed to not rouse the audience a great deal. They were followed by the rock group which calls itself Uncertainty Principle, who started a teeny bit shakily with their Nescafe jingle but their subsequent songs were immediate hits with audience, with many standing up even on their seats.

Swarantara was next in line, and they had a large ensemble of musicians with guitarists, tabla players, a drummer, pianist and both Indian and Western singers. They performed the popular Bollywood number, ‘Dil Chahta Hai’. However, they too failed to enrapture the hordes of students who had been in their element for the previous band.
The last band to perform in the competition was aptly titled as regards their order of appearance as they were called Better Late Than Never (BLTN). BLTN performed a cover of a popular Arctic Monkeys song among their other items and concluded with a self-composition – ‘Come Back Home’.[caption id="attachment_3612" align="aligncenter" width="400" caption="The much-enthralled audience who was rocking along with the performers."][/caption]
The judges, who were the members of the celebrated Indian rock band, Parikrama, who were to perform later that night, came up with the results soon thereafter. It came as no surprise as Uncertainty Principle bagged the award for ‘Best Drummer’, ‘Best Guitarist’ and eventually they were named the ‘Best Band’ of the night. Mutiny In March was declared the runners-up.]]>
