Happy quizzing, and have a nice life, folks!
PS: Apropos what Kapinjal Chowdhury said regarding QR 341. A lot of people tried to answer the question on several pages of Facebook. As I have stated earlier, it is becoming increasingly difficult to reply to all of them, or even keep track of them! That’s the first reason I haven’t mentioned Mit Chowdhury’s name as one of those who answered. The second reason, of course, was that the answer was not correct. There’s a significant difference between Bengali bands and bands from Kolkata.
Three answers, and only two correct. This is indeed Ehsaan Noorani, from the Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy trio.
