R.I.P. Ravi Shankar

One of the vivid memories I have from grade school was learning about Ravi Shankar and his sitar...I was saddened to learn he passed away today.

Do any of you recall this photo?

Not to date myself - but we learned about him by watching a film strip on a projector such as this:

...those were the days!

I was very saddened to hear of his passing, too. His music helped me through many stressful days and nights. I love that photograph.
