Notes: Having finished the first leg of his "33 1/3" promo tour, George now headed off firstly to the Seychelles islands
for a couple of days and then onto Bombay, India to spend a month with Ravi Shankar and his family
. Whilst there he attended the wedding of Ravi Shankar`s niece and also the spiritual festival of the Kumbh Mela in Benares that is held once every twenty years.
Also whilst in India George & Ravi attended a lecture by Indian guru Sathya Sai Baba in Mumbai which was filmed on home video.
This silent colour 8mm footage has 35 seconds of George & Ravi at the lecture and this footage
eventually found its way onto Youtube in 2011 and is now also on bootleg DVD in average quality.
