New Delhi, Jan 14 (IBNS): Musician and artist Yoko Ono has said she was not responsible for the break up of iconic English rock band The Beatles.
Ono is in India to host her first art exhibition in the country.
She has always captivated the attention of her fans for being the wife of The Beatles' singer-songwriter John Lennon.
In fact, it is often alleged that Ono was responsible for the break-up of The Beatles.
However, Ono negated such claims and said that she was made a 'scapegoat'.
"I do not know, but they (The Beatles members) did not have anybody to put the blame. I was the easy target...yes, scapegoat..being an Asian is one and being a woman.. the combination you know was pretty disastrous," Ono told NDTV.
The 79-year -old artist said that the presence of John Lennon had helped her to cope up with the situation.
"I had John with me and he was very supportive and protective about me. If John was not there it would have been a difficult situation... and when John passed away, it was then that the real difficulties started to happen," she said.
New Delhi is hosting the first art exhibition of musician and artist Yoko Ono in the Indian soils as she dedicated her show to the women of the country.
The exhibition titled 'Our Beautiful Daughters' opened on Thursday night at Vadehra Art Gallery and will showcase 20 art projects to the people of India.
Her art works including the famous 'The Wish Tree', will be exhibited at different venues including schools, hospitals, consulates, book shops.
Ono told BBC that the exhibition is "dedicated to the women of India".
This is Ono's first visit to India after the death of Lennon.
Earlier, she had visited the country along with her husband.
Ono promised to her Indian fans that she will again comeback to India in future years.
"I will come back," she told reporters.
