What do bands (not rock bands), mutton shops and local gyms have in common?
The names. They are usually called Jai Karnataka, New India, New Maharashtra or like the band the man above belongs to - The Jai Hind Band. They perform at weddings, funerals, political rallies, etc. around town and operate out of a little shop under the Mysore Road flyover. The Jai Hind Band's biggest rival is their neighbour - The New Nehru Band. This is the first time I'm seeing something named after India's first Prime Minister that is not a Government tax money siphoning scam or a white elephant project.
