Chandigarh, December 29
Haryana Home and Health Minister Anil Vij said that magic is our old art which is being forgotten today and that will request Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar to open a magic academy in Haryana to promote the ancient art of magic.
Vij was addressing hundreds of people gathered at the inauguration of a free magic show by magician Samrat Shankar organized under the Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav at Ambala Cantonment today.
He said that magic was our old art which is being forgotten today and children do not know the old art, we have forgotten to fly kites, and play Gulli-danda. We are forgetting the mythological things. Our country is huge, but there are only 13 magicians in the country.
He said that many programs are being organized all over the country on the occasion of Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav.
“We have celebrated this whole year very happily and have done many programs. In this series, the magic show of magician Samrat Shankar will be organized by the Haryana Government in Ambala Cantonment, two shows daily free of cost from December 29 to January 1,” he said.
The magic show will be shown free of cost for four days: Home Minister Anil Vij
Home Minister Anil Vij said that there is a craze among the people to watch the magic show of the magician Samrat and the show was shown by paying huge tickets. But it is being shown free of cost on the occasion of Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav.
Vij said that he has seen such programs many times and tried to know what is magic. He watched many such programs many times and all he could understand so far was that “what is not there and is seen is magic, and what is there and is not seen is also magic”.
Magicians use fast timing: Anil Vij
Home Minister Anil Vij said that the people of Ambala Cantonment see magic every day, when our supersonic fighter jets fly, they go somewhere and are seen somewhere else. This is because planes fly faster than the speed of sound. Sound has a speed and we cannot see it being above or below it. Similarly, there is a frequency to see, there is a time. Magicians also use fast time. As fast as we can see and hear, magicians perform their actions within the same frequency.
Home Minister Anil Vij praised magician Samrat Shankar
Praising the magician Samrat Shankar, Home Minister Anil Vij said that a few days ago, the magician Samrat had met him and he picked up a piece of paper from the table and made it into a two thousand rupee note and in a short time several notes of two thousand rupees were made.
He said that once in London, the magician Samrat was an hour late for his show. The show was at six o’clock and he reached there at seven o’clock, but when he asked the people to see the watches, it was six o’clock on their watches.
He is such a great magician. The Magician Samrat shows amazing things and is a great magician.
Home Minister Anil Vij enjoyed the magic show which lasted for about two hours and encouraged the artists by clapping and appreciating the magic show.
On this occasion, Home Minister Anil Vij was honored by magician Samrat Shankar by presenting a memento.
