The 15th August is India's Independence Day, and to celebrate it, I've posted pictures of Jane in India and wearing sari.
The Beatles visited Rishikesh in India in 1968 to attend an advanced Transcendental Meditation training session at the ashram of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
The Maharishi's compound was across from Rishikesh, located in the holy "Valley of the Saints" in the foothills of the Himalayas, and the home to many ashrams. The Beatles arrived there in February 1968, along with wives, girlfriends, assistants and numerous reporters, joining about 60 other TM students.
The Starrs left on 1 March, after only a short stay; Paul McCartney and Jane Asher left mid-March due to other commitments; while The Lennons and The Harrisons plus Jenny left abruptly in April 12th following financial disagreements and rumours of inappropriate behaviour by the Maharishi, accusations which were made public.
