Ravi Shankar - The Things They Say 24657


"I miss him very much... We became very, very dear to each other in the sense that it started with my teaching him sitar. And then gradually I saw his interest in Indian religion... philosophy and the old culture. And I helped him get many books to read... He got so deep into it and he was so sincerely in love with India and the Indian religion... He became like part of me." Sitar player Ravi Shankar on his friendship with late Beatle George Harrison.
