In the upcoming episode Dia is seen visiting the ashram of Mahesh Yogi in Rishikesh, made famous by the Beatles. The serene surroundings of the forest amidst which stands the structure of the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi ashram can be accessed by visitors via a breathtaking nature trail. Not known to many people, the ashram also housed the famous English rock band The Beatles in February 1968.


Dia reveals that it is while staying at this ashram that the rock band penned down songs for three of their classic albums, Abbey Road, White Album and Rubber Soul! The graffiti on the walls of the ashram are spectacular and vivid, specially the compelling artwork of The Beatles in black and white.


Commenting on the experience of visiting this historical place Dia said, "My extraordinary journey on ‪#‎GangaTheSoulOfIndia‬ is in its 3rd episode. A journey which made me realise that Yoga is the remedy to seize our hectic mind. Why forests, rivers, sounds of nature and making music sum up pure joy & How we only protect what we learn to love. Witness the melting point of love, peace & artistic expression at the ‪#‎BeatlesCathedral‬, the beautiful Haridwar and my first experience at river-rafting! The episode repeats tonight at 7 PM only on Living Foodz!"

A nature enthusiast and staunch environmentalist, Dia also spent a few moments at the ashram meditating to rejuvenate the body and mind.
