Seeing the Indian Armed Forces band perform at the military orchestra concert of Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) Member States on the margins of the defence ministers’ meeting in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, will give you goosebumps. It was breathtakingly beautiful with the Indian tricolour in the background.
