Seven Year-Old Performs Sightless Drive

 

“She’s Just a Child!”

Saroja Roy of Hyderabad, India is the youngest blindfolded driving magician in the country. Ms. Roy has been training since she was three under H. Guhay, who has a world record in blindfold driving.

 

Not to rest on her laurels ? heck, we didn?t even pass our driver?s test without a blindfold until we were 19 (the test was biased against Irish Magicians) ? Ms. Roy holds the distinction of performing six magic tricks at a time and has been listed in the Limca Book of Records.

 

Kamalkar Roy, her pop and biggest fan, says he introduced her to the world of magic to spread awareness among people and eradicate blind beliefs. “Me and my wife were doing a lot of service to the public to eradicate blind beliefs to develop awareness among the public. On this aspect we started our stage representative programme. On the way only I developed my girl into magic to eradicate blind beliefs.”

 

Ms. Roy performed more than 200 charity shows all over India and has been helping children with cancer and living in orphanages. Her mother Padma Roy says magic was her inborn instinct. “When Saroja was two years old, my husband used to get a lot of toys for her. But Saroja never showed any inclination for toys. So we introduced her to magic. I think it was in her traits to perform.”

 

Ms. Roy hopes to enter the World Magic Championship in Madrid.  If she starts driving now, she should make it before it begins in 2005. 

 

Congratulations Ms. Roy.
