This is the place to discuss Ravi Shankar

Are we allowed to enter our DDP teams even if one of them has just died? Or am I going to have to choose a replacement for Maria de Jesus?

 

Ooh, I dunno, there's a few great Ravi Shankar stories. Like the time he was tuning up with his musicians before they played their part in George Harrison's Concert for Bangladesh. The audience were so pig ignorant they thought the tuning up was a number and applauded it when it finished. :rolleyes:

I think I would have been among them. That said, I do have one of his CDS for those times when I feel the need to light a candle and adopt the lotus position, except with my lack of suppleness it's more like a cauliflower and certainly not up to this.

 

You can't ever imagine Ravi saying: "You hum it and I'll play it."

I'll always remember Ravi Shankar for his complaints at Bangladesh. "No shmoking' .. and everybody was stoned at that concert. There weren't any rules. Nobody listened to him. It was a free for all.

This is the chap who inflicted Norah Jones on to us or? For that he must pay.

 

PS I reckon the quietest threads will be Blake Edwards and Ludovic Kennedy.

You know, an aspiring DL'er could hasten it along by playing Norwegian Blue repeatedly outside his place of residence...

She's mainly responsible for that herself!

 

I mean, he's her dad. But that's about it.

89 today.

 

If he lives the year this will be just about the only news of him in this thread.

All I could find was this interview with his daughter Anoushka from two weeks ago.

...recuperating from a recent bout of ill-health, is her guru and father — the legendary Pandit Ravi Shankar. She’s looking after him, he’s 90, and in frail condition indeed, unable to participate in this guru-shishya interview.

Yeah, but it briefly got people's hopes up, and that's the important thing.

RIP Ravi Shankar.

Another nailed on list names dies. That's 4 gone in the last week or so.

But you can't count anything as 19. Don't work like that.
