Maayamayam is a Pearl

 

They came four hundred strong to the All India Magicians Conference in beautiful Hyderabad, India, this week.  The conference provided entertainment for the town as well as the members with public shows and private lectures.  The public shows were designed to intrigue those with a curiosity about our art and hopefully entrap them into the world we know and love. 

 

“It’s open to those who wanted to learn magic, different ways of performing the tricks and a lot of things I have learnt from this,” said M Verma, a magician from Kerala.

 

The convention is called “Maayamayam.”  The title is derived from Sanskrit and is a combination of “Maaya” and “Mayam.”  Maaya means Magic and Mayam translates as Gathering.

 

The All India Magicians Conference included magicians from outside India as well.  Bosco, a magician from Singapore, brought more than his effects:  “They would love to see how we perform magic and we would love to see how they perform magic.  It is not the magic that we do. It is how you present it and the presentation varies from country to country, people to people because each personality is totally different.”

 

Hyderabad is well known for its rich production of pearls.  It is fitting, therefore, that attendees were able to not only gain pearls of wisdom and experience from the convention but also buy from the specially constructed kiosk.  We like it when the metaphors match up.
