The avant-garde artist, musician and widow of Beatles singer John Lennon will visit New Delhi for an art show that opens on January 13.
The Japanese-born Yoko Ono, 78, told the Hindustan Times newspaper in an email interview from her New York home that she hoped to get more out of her coming trip than on a previous India visit she made with Lennon.
“The visit in the past was just to appreciate and enjoy India’s land and culture — this time I am coming for encouragement and inspiration,” she said.
All the Beatles had visited India in 1968 to attend a transcendental meditation course led by the mystic Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
“(After) the famous visit he made with his three friends, John and I later visited India just by ourselves, and loved it,” she said.
Her art exhibition, “Our Beautiful Daughters,” is being hosted by the private Vadehra Art Gallery and runs until March 10
