    This was on Facebook this morning

    Beloved friends, with a heavy heart I want to tell you all
    that this morning at Chicago Ohara airport, while I was on
    my way to retrieving my luggage, someone stole
    my beloved Mohan Veena (pictured to the left of me).
    Security cameras showed a man pick it up and walk out.
    I've had that Veena more than 20years. There's hardly been a day that I haven't played it. I feel as though I've lost a good friend. I need everyone's help to find it. If you know someone in Chicago, tell them about it. Maybe it will surface on Craigs list or E-bay. Maybe in a music store or Pawn shop. There's no missing it. The Veena is in a Black Fibreglass Case with lots of stickers. And the Veena has 20 Strings, 2 layers of strings running parallel. It has tuning heads right down the neck. No other instrument looks like this. I'm grateful for any help. thanks Harry

    I just saw it on Facebook too and was about to post this same thing.

    It's truly a one-of-a-kind instrument, so hopefully he gets it back.

    Road Ragas is one of my "desert island" albums.

    Here is a pic. As you can see, it's easily identifiable.

    That'll be nearly impossible to fence.

    Hope it gets returned, and soon.

    Peace, Mooh.

    The number of people who could play it can probably be counted on the fingers of one hand. Fencing it is not only a matter of its identifiability, but finding an actual buyer.

    In any event, keeping it of Harry's hands does the world a disservice.

    Thank goodness for that. I hope it's a good condition.

    Peace, Mooh.

    The dude that stole it probably said "what am I supposed to do with this?" when he opened the case.
