Most of my friends know I stay next to St. Vincent’s High School in Camp, Pune. This is where I studied from class VI to XII after we moved here from Bombay, and where I’ve lived for just over two decades. Our brass band has cyclic quality which changes over the years; it improves as the students get better but quality can drop when there is a sudden influx of new guys. The last three to four years have been particularly good though.
Sometimes the band beats your alarm clock to the punch, which is mostly pleasant, but I wish they would learn more tunes!
