Grandslam brings P.C. Sorcar

Our Bureau

SLEIGHT OF HAND: Magician P.C. Sorcar pulls a fast one on journalists at a press conference in Hyderabad on Thursday as his wife, Ms Jayasree, looks on.


"TODAY'S magic is tomorrow's science. Anything supernatural is basically science of tomorrow," according to P.C.Sorcar Jr, renowned magician of the modern genre.

"Magic is in my blood. Ours is a family of magicians. And performing magic is our birthright. Even the cat in our house is a magician," he said detailing his lineage and expertise in this art.

P.C.Sorcar, in league with event managers Grandslam Network is set to line up a slew of magic tricks, including the possibility of `walking on the picturesque' Hussainsagar lake, targeting the tiny tots of Hyderabad and Secunderabad. Remember he once made the Taj Mahal disappear?

Mr Sorcar, speaking to presspersons here on Thursday said magic was a big hit with children. Apart from performances in Hyderabad, Sorcar plans to showcase his magic wares in Bangalore.

Grandslam Network also plans to host P.C. Sorcar Jr. shows in Bangalore for one month and performances in Lucknow, Pune, and Mumbai are to follow. The show is co-sponsored by Coca Cola, Tirumala Music centre, Yatri Niwas which will serve as the official host.

Mr Sorcar, who has already penned 21 books, is in the process of writing another book on the tricks used in business practices. With regard to Banamati (witchcraft), which is of late in the news here for wrong reasons, he said it was necessary that people understand that there was nothing wrong with it; but the way it is used needs to be checked. "It is like knife in a wrong hand which can create problems. It is not that the knife is itself a problem, but it is the issue of knife falling into wrong hands."
