A medicine man, visiting seven temples in seven daybreaks? How does it sound? There is more to come. With stethoscope and surgical instruments at hand, he recites Gita and picks invaluable spiritual and philosophical teachings of the great Lord Krishna. "I don't eat anything till I feed corns to the bevy of pigeons that visit my courtyard every morning." This is his love for souls; this is his faith in the divinity of creation.

Jamun -Gubhaju’s-story

The story of Jamun Gubhaju of Patan is not less amazing than any other miracle. It goes like this:

One day, a self proclaimed magician from India came to Patan after fooling many people by his magic. Boasting of his unparallel talents, he cut open the stomach of his Jamura (assistant) and took off his heart and liver and placed on a banana leaf. But nothing was hidden to the Gubhaju of Patan, who was even a better magician. To break the self-conceit of the magician, Gubhaju promptly disguised himself as an eagle and flew high, carrying the heart and the liver, kept on the banana leaf.

Magician Kamal Kumar has a different way of defining magic. Here is an excerpt of his talk with The Ketaketi Online.

Kamalji, you have recently come to light as a magician. How did you enter this queer field?

I found magic when I was searching for God. As a young boy, I thought that magicians are people empowered by God to do miracles. I wanted to be the same. When I was sixteen, I went to Mumbai and learnt magic. Back home, I performed them at different places like Bhairahawa, Biratnagar, Butwal, Kathmandu and Hetauda. I have also performed in some Embassies and almost all the big hotels in Kathmandu. People watch my performance with awe.
