A VERY DRAMATIC EXAMPLE OF IMAGE AND REALITY: RAVI SHANKAR AND HIS FIRST WIFE, ANNAPURNA DEVI


This is one of the greatest pieces I have read lately. I hope you will read it in its entirely. Briefly, the most salient features of this article:

Ravi Shankar’s first wife, Roshanara, renamed Annapurna Devi after her conversion to Hinduism prior of her marriage to him, is from a long line of illustrious musicians, sister of Ali Ali Akbar Khan. They performed together, and she was more popular than Ravi Shankar and he didn’t like it. To save her marriage she took a vow never to perform in public again. This is her story.
