Hey guys i got an opportunity to witness a magic show and since i had two passes from the show i took my mother as well. it was an international magic festival so many renowned magicians had come from other countries, and we got to see the magic from two magicians only. i really loved the way he vanished the table and within a flash of seconds the table was present at the back of the audience gallery which was really surprising, then he tore apart a 500 rupee note and i felt bad but then within minutes the note was back to its normal form. I have also heard that some magicians have also disappeared monuments for few minutes and i was surprised how did that happened. i know it is all about illusion but then i would love to know the tricks behind the magics. I have also heard about the street magicians but unfortunately we do not have such magicians in our streets here. What r your thoughts about this? Have u ever watched any magic shows? Do u love watching magic tricks? Any magic trick u know or have seen that is still remembered by you? Please do share your thoughts!

When we were kids, my mom and dad would bring us to such shows. As a child, we were always excited. It is always such an enjoyable family bonding for all of us.

These shows are really for kids to enjoy. You can just see how wide-eyed they are every time something unusual happens. The innocence on their faces....I would often wish of getting back to my childhood even for just a day and relive the memories.

Yeah u are absolutely right, i have seen their expressions and how they do not move a bit while being in their seats. In fact magic shows are meant to entertain kids. anyways yeah me too want to go back to my childhood days when everything was so easy and carefree. There was no burden on our shoulder to take responsibilities.

As of now I have no more chance to watch live performances but I can on television shows. But during my childhood days I remember that me and friends used to watch local magic shows. Good to know you had a great experience!

Oh yeah live magical shows are always enjoyable and exciting to watch as u can see the tricks and magics live in front of u and the excitement in you increases to watch more of it, besides even i have watched very few magic tricks on television but have enjoyed the ones that i have seen live comparatively.

yeah i know it would have been awesome if u watch a live magic performance as your mouth would be left wide opened after seeing the tricks being performed, besides i have heard about him that he walked on water without any support and that people were left astonished completely. i hope u get to see a live one in the future.

Last year, there was an invitation from my husband's business friend for a devali dinner in conjunction with his children's birthday. There are also some orphanage coming to join his dinner . He invited magicians to perform some magic tricks for the orphanage. Those are simple tricks as it was done merely for entertaining the kids. Among the tricks were, the appearing and disappearing of birds, a long colorful ribbons coming out from his mouth, some poker games kind of tricks etc. The orphanage were very happy and enjoyed themselves very much

oh wow, sounds like u all had a great time together, i think the idea of getting the magicians to entertain the kids was a great one as it would have got a smile on everyone's face especially the kids from the orphanage as they would have enjoyed it very much. Yeah the tricks that u have mentioned are the general ones which are always enjoyable to watch.
