Spicy Curry

In 2004, Eric Spruth and I were wandering around India looking for magic.  I took him to see some of my former coworkers who live in Shadipur depot in Delhi.  They put on a show to welcome us and this is a picture that Eric took of their show.  My young friend is eating fire, one of the most dangerous and entertaining Indian magical demonstrations.  Local laws prevent me from performing this in the Lyric Hall, but I will do needle and sword swallowing to demonstrate my unusual oral dexterity.  This young man is part of the troupe of Mangelal, a Delhi-based Rajasthani impresario and musician.
