Anoushka Shankar, composer and daughter of the sitar maestro Ravi Shankar, who died recently, has revealed how as a child she suffered “sexual and emotional abuse” in silence for several years at the hands of a man her parents trusted implicitly.

Even now, years later, she is often “afraid to walk alone at night, afraid to answer a man who asks for the time,” Ms. Shankar said in a video recorded at her London home in support of the global “One Billion Rising” campaign for an end to violence against women. “As a woman, I find I am frequently living in fear.”
