Perhaps the comparisons... were inevitable. It was reportedly said that in her (Annapurna’s) music there was eighty per cent Baba Allauddin Khan, while Ali Akbar Khan had seventy per cent and Ravi Shankar had about forty percent.
Ravi Shankar wondered, Why people do not accept that it is possible to love more than one woman at a time. He can do it. He has learnt from his own life that love is of different kinds – love for one’s wife, love for a friend and love for the other woman. Each love is complementary to another. It is a search for fulfilment. It is a pity that Annapurna fails to appreciate this. She is an artist with a large heart, so why is she so guarded in matters of love.
