Ravi Shankar was ‘my guru and my father’ – Anoushka


Ravi Shankar on stage, greets crowd and sits down for concert with daughter Anoushka Shankar (in New Delhi, 2002): Anoushka said in an interview this week: It’s funny those nurture, nature questions because obviously I don’t know another hypothetical life of mine I only know this one so looking back it’s easy to say music was inevitable because of who my father was. Though I was definitely given choice as far as what I wanted to do so I was brought up around it. I heard it since I was a baby. I loved it. But hypothetically yeah I could have easily said ‘no actually I want to go to university and get my English literature degree and become a writer,’ or you know something else that could have easily happened too. – Associated Press – Via CP
