Didn't know about him before but his name is very similar (at least in English) to Adi Shankara? :lol:

Okay. He's father of Norah Jones and Anoushka Shankar, both Grammy winners. ;)

Happy Birthday, Ravi.
I've wanted a Sitar since first seeing him play one. Maybe some day.

Ravi was famous a few decades ago for his collaboration with the Beatles in their later years, and then with ex-Beatle George Harrison afterwards. I believe he introduced them to the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, though it might have been the other way around. And he was involved with Harrison doing rock's first really big fundraising event (years B4 Live Aid) the 1971 Concert for Bangladesh, after a typhoon devastated the months nation that had been East Pakistan.
