My, How The Mighty Have Fallen

08 April 2014 @ 07:28

This paragraph in an ABC News story caught my eye:

The man remained hospitalized in stable condition Monday, surrounded by family members but unable to speak because of a feeding tube in his throat, according to Dr. Ravi Shankar, a critical care specialist in the Indian city.

Wow…from world fame at Monterey Pop and Woodstock to wearing a smock as an Indian doc.

Yes…I am old.

    Funny, but a different fellow. The famous one died in 2012.

    Me too! And FWIW: “Shankar” is an appellation of the Shiva (Consummator) aspect of Godhead. In Christian correlate: The Christ. “Shankar” also refers to an Indian predecessor/contemporary of St. Francis of Assisi: Shankaracharya. “Ravi” means, among other things, intense — to include qualities of both power and eros — lover of God. Ravi Shankar bore a redolent Shaivite name and entered this breathing world in the Shaivite city of Varanasi (Benares). Christianity is a Shaivite, as compared to a Vaishnavite, religion, so it is natural that Ravi would be liked here in USA and Europe. Who did not in those days?

    It could be worse. The doctor could be Pete Bes.

    If you remember Janice Rule, she retired from acting and had a successful career as a psychiatrist in NY.

    She died just a few years ago.

      There’s a name I haven’t heard in years. Never knew she became a doctor.
