Jenny Boyd remembers the Beatles' India trip


Jenny Boyd, sister of George Harrison's former wife, Pattie, recalls her trip to Indian in 1968 to study Transcendental Meditation.

What are your favourite memories of the trip?

They include sitting in the early morning sun on the roof of our bungalow with Pattie and Cynthia while we listened to George, Paul and John sharing their latest songs. Another memory is sitting in the freezing cold River Ganges with some fellow meditators, happy and playful. I remember one day when everyone from the ashram, including Maharishi, walked down to the Ganges while George, Paul and John, looking like minstrels, sang and played their guitars. We all sat together on the sand, singing to the music.
