Essay On A Juggler’s Show
Jugglers are very common in India. They are nomads. They wander from place to place in search of a livelihood.
One day, I was returning from my school. When I came near a park, I saw a large number of people assembled on the road. I asked one of them the reason of such a big crowd. As he did not know the answer, I got into the crowd.
When I reached the front line, I saw an old juggler standing with his boy whom he called Jamoora. The juggler was shabbily dressed. He had a long beard and a big turban on his head.
He had a small novice with him. He carried a big basket and a bag full of odds and ends. He began to beat his little drum and sing a song. Then he began performing his tricks. He was also passing some humorous remarks.
He took out a rupee from his pocket. It was a genuine coin. With the spell of his magic rod which he called ‘Shiam Sundri’ he doubled the money. Some people examined the coins. Everybody was surprised at his skill. Then he desired to have a ring. One person gave him his golden ring. When he got it, he threw it into the crowd. Seeing this, the person was very angry. He demanded him to return his ring. The juggler asked him to search the watch pocket of his coat. To the great surprise of all he found his ring in his own pocket. Then the juggler took a mango stone and planted it in a flower pot. He then watered it. After some time, we saw a small mango plant in the flower pot.
There was no end to the tricks that he performed one after the other. Then he made an appeal for money. There was generous response from the boys. He collected the coins, packed his articles and moved on to another place to show his feats.
