It’s safe to say that most of what the Indian independent music scene has turned out to be, is because of the events of the last ten years. From bands playing covers, to bands playing ‘OCs’, to bands playing songs; from web forums, to web blogs, to web zines; from Rang Bhavan, to Hamsadhwani, to um, Chitrakoot Grounds, this decade has seen our indie scene go from being an also-ran sub culture to a contender. Sure, there’s a long way to go, but hell, it’s been a remarkable ten years.
