Today George Harrison celebrated his 25th birthday at the ashram in Rishikesh. There he is above, getting ready to cut his cake; one assumes that, this being India, it was frosted with garam masala.

According to,

The Maharishi…gave Harrison an upside-down plastic globe of the world and said: “George, the globe I am giving you symbolizes the world today. I hope you will help us all in the task of putting it right.” Harrison immediately turned the globe to its correct position, shouting, “I’ve done it!”

A strange footnote: George later discovered that February 25 was not his real birthday; in fact he was born at 11:50 PM on February 24, 1943. Or as Jemaine Clement so aptly put it: “The day after my birthday is not my birthday, mom.”
