Sunday, January 28, 2018

New Delhi: A throwback to Ob-la-di, Ob-la-da... as an exhibition in the United Kingdom to celebrate 50 years of the Beatles' visit to India and the seven-week stay at Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's ashram in 1968, is all set to open in London next month. A sitar used by the Pandit Ravi Shankar who introduced Indian classical music to the Fab Four will be the center of attraction at the exhibition. The sitar is being loaned to the Beatles Story museum in Liverpool by the Ravi Shankar Foundation.

Diane Glover, manager at the Beatles Story museum said the exhibition will feature never-before-seen memorabilia, photographs and personal accounts from the people who spent time with John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and George Harrison in Mahesh Yogi's ashram on the banks of the Ganges.
