India’s Prof of Magic Vanishes Qutab Minar

Minaret before vanish

The Qutab Minar is as closely identified with New Delhi as the Empire State Building is with New York and the Eiffel Tower is with Paris. According to the press reports, it is the tallest “unmoveable object ever vanished.” Several other magicians had attempted to vanish the minaret but Mr. Pandey was the first to succeed.

You might recall Mr. Pandey from last year’s Inside Magic article about his blindfold motorcycle drive through very busy city streets. He prides himself in his ability to perform traditional Indian tricks and performs in full Indian costume. He’s taken his show on the road to Nepal, Japan, England, France, Dubai, Switzerland and Austria.

Levitation in Indian Costume

His colleagues conferred upon him the title of “Professor of Magic” and he has received several awards from the Indian Government and magic organizations. The title “Professor” in the U.S. is associated with Dai Vernon and I imagine it is as impressive in India.

I certainly hope someone has video of the minaret vanish. I would love to see it and if possible make it available to other magicians through Inside Magic. Of course, it was also be nice to watch Mr. Pandy perform. Perhaps he will visit the United States for tour. I’ll keep you up to date.
