Back in 1988 when a group of medical students wanted to impress girls in Delhi, they formed a rock band Euphoria, which eventually turned to Hindi fusion rock with singer Palash Sen as the front man. In over 32 years, Euphoria has successfully released seven albums with songs like Maeri, Aana Meri Gully and Dhoom Pichak Dhoom with Palash as a lead singer. Euphoria continues to remain one of the highest-selling and heard bands in India and Palash still has a strong fan following for his melodious voice. In a recent episode of The Kapil Sharma Show, Sen revealed the reason for which he chose his indie band to be called “Euphoria”.
When the host Kapil Sharma asked him how he came up with such an interesting name for his band, the singer, who is also a doctor by profession, responded: "In psychiatry, there is a psychological situation called 'mania'. The first step into this 'mania' is 'hypomania'. The feeling you get when in 'hypomania' is called 'euphoria'."
"Now in this phase 'Euphoria', people have created some of the most brilliant works of art like Shakespeare wrote one of his most brilliant plays or Leonardo Da Vinci painted his most brilliant art piece, Kapil you are always in euphoria. Such people are in 'euphoria' because when in this phase, you are at your creative best! So, I thought our band would hence, always be at its creative best."
In a candid interview with Jay Kumar, Host of Jay-Ho, The Jay Kumar Show, one of the leading Talk shows in the USA, Sen have revealed lesser known facts about him and his Indie band “Euphoria” which can prove to be a strong dose of inspiration for the viewers.
