Ugh, RIP Ravi Shankar. A huge inspiration.

From the Toronto Star: “Sitar maestro Pandit Ravi Shankar died in San Diego on Tuesday, India’s The Hindu newspaper reported. He was 92. He was admitted to the Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla last Thursday after he complained of breathing difficulties, it said.”
