Default Nora Jones & Ravi Shankar

I had no idea Ravi Shankar is the father. WOW! Offcourse, Ravi turns out to be a poor excuse of a father and Norah had no real connection to her Bangali roots. I only found out about this connection as I was looking up Arnob's music in youtube, landed into related links that lead me to Anoushka Shankar's songs and a collaboration between Anoushka Shankar & Norah Jones. One of the comment mentioned that they were half sisters. jumped to imdb to find this:

Gotta love the internet.

Orphy. I kinda figured it out. She is almost reaching 30 and I just found out now. Obviously 29 years of history to catch up with. Tomar to goru hoite onek baki, matro 3808 posts and you've been here forever. I feel like you're not giving us your 80-90%.

(geez, listening to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hlPZm...eature=related, the audience are really getting in on the action)
