Big Brother UK: Shilpa Shetty’s Failed Attempt to Teach Meditation

I found this news item in the website of Channel 4. Shilpa Shetty is obviously very happy and excited to be in Big Brother. She is the only participant from India. And she is trying to show the goos aspects of Indian culture. So, she tried to teach relaxation through meditation to Carole and Ken. However, it did not go well. Channel 4 reported:

Shilpa instructs two recruits in the art of meditation...

Shilpa's attempts to teach the relaxing qualities of meditation to Carole and Ken were thwarted by a mid-chant coughing fit by the veteran film director.

Shortly after Ken's spluttering shattered the trio's trance, it was Carole's turn to blame the doomed session for her own maladies.

The ill-fated attempt kicked off when Ken spotted Shilpa trying to teach Carole how to meditate in the corner of the bedroom. His ears pricked up, Ken sauntered over to find out more about the relaxation technique. "Can I join your chanting? I like the sound of that," he enthused.

Poor, Shilpa Shetty. She was just trying to help and show the good side of Indian culture.
