This is the place to discuss Ravi Shankar



My pick for 2009's least active thread.
2008 DDP: 15th place. 2009 DDP: 25th place. 2010 DDP: 12th place. 2011 DDP: 12th place; 2012 DDP: 6th place. 2013 DDP: 15th place.
2014 DDP: 3rd place.


DEATH be not proud, though some have called thee
Mighty and dreadfull, for, thou art not so,
For, those, whom thou think'st, thou dost overthrow,
Die not, poore death, nor yet canst thou kill me.

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."
Ring down the curtain, the farce is over

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.

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

Is he not a Monty Python fan then?

She's mainly responsible for that herself!

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

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. Shes looking after him, hes 90, and in frail condition indeed, unable to participate in this guru-shishya interview.

It's probably nothing, but Ravi Shankar has cancelled some recent gigs due to illness.

They may beg, they may plead, they may argue with my logic

And mention all the things I'll lose that really have no value

In the end they will surely know, I wasn't born to follow

Anyone else notice that Ravi is listed as expired on his link?

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