Very few rock bands in India can boast of ­having stayed together for more than 20 years, baring a few, such as Indus Creed, Indian Ocean, Pentagram. These bands are still belting out timeless rock ‘n’ roll music. One band that does not stay in the news as its contemporaries is the Delhi-based
, that recently completed 23 years of inception.The band’s keyboard player, Subir Malik says that Parikrama was formed purely for playing classic rock. "People talk about you on their own, if you have substance in you. That’s why you will never hear us even defending our band if we are blamed in anyway. People talk and criticise — that’s their job. Our job is to create and play music," he says.
