Tuesday marked the 100th birth anniversary of legendary musician Pandit Ravi Shankar. Every year on his anniversary, his family and admirers gather to celebrate his musical legacy. However, due to the 21-day lockdown imposed by PM Modi, Ravi Shankar's 100th birth anniversary could not be as grand as expected but Shankar's daughter Anoushka Shankar took to her social media to announce that the family will be conducting a virtual tribute to the singer on his birthday. She wrote:

Hi everyone, this isn’t something I would normally do, but tomorrow I’m inviting you to join my family and me as we privately light a candle and say some prayers to mark my late father’s hundredth birthday. We were meant to have celebrated with a massive gala performance, but since that can’t happen, we’re inviting you to join us at home instead. Sending you love and light in these trying times!
