People are rarely surprised to learn that I am a second generation Indian magician. Above is an image from a brochure that my uncle used to use to promote his magic shows. I sincerely hope his escaping skills were better than his spelling skills. I often wonder how long he held the title of India's youngest magician, a title more recently claimed by Jadugaar baby Anchal Kumavat about whom I have written. I am not sure if the woman in the picture is my aunt or a hired assistant. I would guess she was a hired assistant. Alas, I never saw my uncle performing handcuff escapes in his prime. In my show I will try to recreate some illusions that I did see my uncle perform when I was young and he was semi-retired.
