Indian Juggler

An Indian Juggler or magician as he is called. is a common sight Indian Bazaars. He can easily be recognized by his loose and long kurta and dhoti and the turban on his head. He is usually followed by a crowed or by street children and boys eager to see his feats Often dogs also follow him barking loudly at his strange figure.

He usually selects a wide open space by the roadside However. he is not averse to showing his feats in private places. as the compounds of big kothies and schools. To collect the audience. he beats his small drum; the flute is the signal that the show is about to begin. and soon large crowds gather around him.

 The tricks of Indian Juggler are very amazing and clever that they have become famous all over the world One of the commonest scene is the throwing up of a number of brass balls high into the air, one after another and catching them all in his hands as they come down The show continues for a pretty long time, and is always watched with breathless attention. All the spectators are feareful that one of them will fall and the Juggler will commit an error. But none of them ever falls. The eyes of the conjurer follows them As they go up and come down, his hands catch them with the accuracy and skill of a machine. How does the juggler require all with dexterity. How can he perform such marvellous feats so faultlessly and with such apparent ease ? The fact is that life long training and devotion alone have made the Indian juggler what he is. As the famous English essayist in his remarkable essay on the subject has shown that danger is the best teacher The least error would expose the juggler to failure and probably break his head. Hence he does not commit any error. It is skill surmounting difficulty and beauty triumphant over skill. The growing of a mango tree is another of the common feats of a juggler. It is very much like magic. A mango seed is sown in the ground some water is sprinkled over it. It is then covered with a basket. After a few minutes the basket is removed and a mango plant, a foot high, is discovered. The plant soon grows to be full tree and bears fruits which are distributed among the spectators to their great amazement and delights. How does he do it ? Neither science nor philosophy can furnish any explanation for this marvellous feat.

Another feat, equally miraculous is the so called basket trick. A young lad gets into a basket which is then covered with a piece of cloth. The juggler pierces the cloth deep with a sharp dagger several times and the spectators are sure That the boy must have been killed, or at least seriously wounded. The cloth is then removed and to the wonder of all, the basket is seen to be empty. Wonder of wonders follows. A few minutes after the boy comes out of the crowd long time. How did he escape from the basket ?

Such are the facts of an Indian Juggler. We have given only a few examples out of hundreds. Even though scholars have exercised their brains to provide a reasonable explanation to what the juggler performs. Still much of what he does remains a mystery. He is the magician in the real sense of term.
