'The Prestige' and 'Now You See Me' had fascinated me beyond imagination in the recent years. I have heard my mom talk about a magic show she was a part of when young when the magician 'split her in half' and she ‘had no clue’. No wonder, I have long wanted to be part of a magic show.
Last week, thanks to Blogadda, I got the opportunity to go for a 'mentalism' show by Ugesh Sarcar. No, mentalism and magic isn’t the same thing. But definitely the former is a subset of the latter. I have known about 'mentalism' or the act of 'reading someone's mind' since a few years now and I was definitely looking forward to be a part of a live show like this.
As per schedule, I reached the St Andrews Auditorium in Bandra and collected my passes. The waiting area was filled with people of all ages, literally, waiting for the auditorium doors to be thrown open. There were pre-show activities going on in preparation for the show. Apparently the mentalist was going to read the mind of audience members and answer their questions. I met Sagarika, another blogger guest, and Dimple, from Blogadda.
