A contribution of India to the world of magic

This video features one of the oldest street magic of India – the Great Indian Rope Trick; believed to have been first performed in the 1800s, which later went on to earn the title – ‘World’s greatest illusion.’

This magic, performed outdoors involves a rope, a bulky basket and a young boy. The excitement of this magic reaches its pinnacle, when the young boy climbing up the rope reaches the top end of the rope and then vanishes without a trace. The boy later reappears from nowhere to the astonishment of the onlookers.
